"I should say that my wife and I, while still Protestants, found the first edition of this work to be so luminous and compelling as to help change our minds on the matter of contraception."

This was an outstanding book. Mr. Kippley puts forth the most clear and insightful teaching on why the Catholic Church teaches as she does in regards to marriage and human sexuality. No Catholic should go past the age of twenty without reading this fine book. We live in a world that has lost its collective mind as a result of contraception. This is the antidote. The teachings of the Church are looked at in great detail and the beauty of God's plan for the marriage act is communicated in seventeen words: "Sexual intercourse is intended by God to be at least implicitly a renewal of the marriage covenant." I wish I could buy a copy of this book for every Catholic I know, but every adult would benefit from it. God wants everyone to know these truths and not just those who profess the Catholic religion. Thank you, Mr. Kippley.
Kippley proves his case from every conceivable angle; from scriptural covenant theology, from the Magisterium, and from scripture directly. While he is presenting his case, he does a wonderful job dispelling objections, handling the hard cases, and putting an end to the propoganda that our liberal society pits against what they like to call "Papal roulette", or Natural Family Planning.
I very highly recommend this book for couples, singles, and teachers who are interested in this topic. Whether you are unconvinced but are sincere in following God's will (Catholic or Protestant), or if you are already convinced and would like a more effective tool with which you can share this teaching with others, this book is for you.
