5.0 out of 5 stars The must-read on the marriage question, November 27, 2012
This review is from: What Is Marriage?: Man and Woman: A Defense (Kindle Edition)
There is a reason the law review article that grew into this book broke download records at the Social Science Research Network, where scholars post advance copies of journal articles. That is that Girgis, Anderson, and George went to the core of the philosophical, moral, political, and legal debate over same-sex marriage, by asking the simple and disarming question, "what is marriage?" And then they answered it, with cogent arguments that the word-and the institution it names-lose all their meaning if we no longer say that marriage is the union of a man and a woman. So far no one has come up with a convincing rebuttal of their arguments.

Their book is a judicious blend of reason and compassion-qualities of mind and heart that are friends, not enemies, as should be all the participants in this debate. This is the book that should be in the hands of all the Supreme Court justices, given the work they have ahead of them, in the near or long term.

Hi Professor Franck,

I just realized that this review was written by you. My name is John Burford. I just graduated from Princeton back in June, and you came and spoke to our Aquinas Institute apologetics group one week about the HHS mandate. I just posted my own review of the book.

Best,
John
