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

I'm not sure anything provided here cannot be found elsewhere on internet sites promoting and defending traditional marriage, but the convenience of having a significant amount of information in a short and quick read that can be studied and referred to again and again or passed along is valuable. Volume discounts make this useful for mass distribution (e.g., parishes) or group study.
This short work is a valuable introduction to the current marriage debate and how to defend traditional marriage but, for those who want or need to go deeper, other resources (like "What is Marriage" by Girgis, Anderson, and George) will be required.
