Editorial Reviews


There is a lot of food for thought packed into this little booklet, which intended to be a practical guide to help the laity navigate the confusion about marriage in conversations with their family and friends. I believe you will find it to be a very valuable resource. —Most Rev. Salvatore J. Cordileone Archbishop of San Francisco Chairman, USCCB Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage

This communication guide is an invaluable resource for answering questions and explaining what is at stake for the future of marriage and the rights of children if marriage is redefined. Every family should have one. —Raymond L. Flynn, former U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican and Mayor of Boston

The break–down of the family through artificial contraception and divorce/remarriage has been a social fact of life for decades now. Unfortunately, that situation has not been helped by ecclesiastical silence on the issues, in all too many cases. The current drive to re–define marriage itself is a logical conclusion to this confusion but also gives people of faith and those simply of intelligence and good will a golden opportunity to re-visit all of the aspects of what constitutes a true marriage, benefitting children and society–at–large. William May has provided a wonderful guide for discussing marriage in the public forum, without having recourse to biblical or other theological points of reference. For that reason alone, it is a most valuable contribution to a conversation which is not going away any time soon. —Rev. Peter M. J. Stravinskas, Ph.D., S.T.D. Editor, The Catholic Response

This 70-page book is a quick read, but it packs a powerful message. —Stuart Dunn Catholic book review blog

If you are looking for an easy reference book on defending marriage, this book really is worth having and reading. —Cheryl Dickow Bezalel Books

This discussion is important, and we owe it to our children, and theirs, to keep having this discussion, and being as thoughtful about it as we can. —Roxane B. Salonen Editor, New Earth

About the Author

William B. May is founder, president, and CEO of Catholics for the Common Good, a lay apostolate for the evangelization of culture. He is a sought after speaker on marriage, family, culture, and the imperative of regaining the offense to promote the centrality and integrity of marriage for children and society. In 2008, May and Catholics for the Common Good were asked by the California Catholic Conference to lead Catholics for Protect Marriage, the lay Catholic response to the Proposition 8 effort that successfully restored the definition of marriage between a man and a woman in California. In his role as president and CEO, he has appeared on Good Morning America, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, BBC, Fox News Channel, CNN, EWTN Radio, Immaculate Heart Radio, the Catholic Channel, and many other programs. He and his wife Nancy have three children.
Always the perfect gift
