"Every leader in America needs to read this book! It's by far the best summary of what's at stake, combining rigorous research, solid documentation, and brilliant analysis of the implications. Ryan Anderson has written a tour de force."
—Dr. Rick Warren, Author of The Purpose Driven Life and Pastor of Saddleback Church
"We live at a privileged moment: a time for what Bonhoeffer called costly grace; a time for Christians to bear witness to the truth in the public square. Ryan Anderson has been doing this courageously for several years now. His new book, Truth Overruled: The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom, is vital reading for anyone seeking to defend the goodness that remains in our nation, and our rights to live in accord with the truth."
—Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia
"It takes great courage and extraordinary eloquence to effectively defend the truth about marriage in the public square today, and Ryan Anderson has both. All Americans who are rightly concerned about the future of marriage and religious liberty are greatly indebted to him for this important book."
—Rabbi Meir Y. Soloveichik, Ph.D., Straus Center for Torah and Western Thought, Yeshiva University
"Ryan Anderson's presence among us at a time such as this—as evidenced most recently by this book—is nothing less than profoundly encouraging and inspiring to all of us who know that our dear country has lost its way. If we can find a path out of our current Slough of Despond, it will be in large part due to winsome heroes like him. Read this book."
—Eric Metaxas, New York Times Bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy
"Novelist Walker Percy said of the abortion rights movement a generation ago: 'You may get your way. But you're going to be told what you're doing.' And ever since Roe v Wade, prolifers have been telling abortionists that abortion stops a beating heart. When it comes to the question of marriage and family, Ryan Anderson is a Walker Percy for a new day. Anderson is the brightest intellectual star in the pro-marriage movement. He seeks to persuade and provoke with reason, logic, and honesty. This book will equip to bear witness to ancient convictions in a strange new world."
—Russell D. Moore, Ph.D., Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, Southern Baptist Convention
—Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University
"With the social and legal significance of marriage in debate as never before, and with religious freedom at risk of becoming a second-class right, Ryan Anderson's book could not be more timely. His well-documented analysis of the likely implications of redefining a basic social institution plus his sober forecast of coming inroads on freedom of conscience and religion should give pause to all but the most hardened ideologues. At the same time, his roadmap for fortifying the rights of conscience while rebuilding a culture of marriage will provide
encouragement to all who are concerned about America’s moral ecology.
—Mary Ann Glendon, Learned Hand Professor of Law, Harvard University
From the Author
I wrote this book for all Americans. For those who disagree with me, to at least understand my arguments. For those who agree, to better understand the nature of the debate and the reasons supporting the truth. For those undecided, to get one thoughtful take on what the future should hold.
Already we are seeing attacks on religious liberty--predicated on the bogus equation of opposition to same-sex marriage with racism--and modest efforts in Indiana and other states to protect believers' rights have met with hysterics from media and corporate elites. I tell the stories of innocent citizens who have been coerced and penalized by the government, and I offer a strategy to protect the natural right of religious liberty.
I also report on the latest research on same-sex parenting, filling it out with the testimony of children raised by gays and lesbians. I conclude with a comprehensive roadmap on how to rebuild a culture of marriage, with work to be done by everyone.
After hundreds of lectures at law schools and college campuses and dozens of TV interviews, I think I've written a must-read manual on where to go from here. There are reasonable and compelling arguments for the truth about marriage, but too many of our neighbors haven't heard them. Truth is never on "the wrong side of history," but we have to make the case. We will decide which side of history we are on.

Don't miss out on this work, whether you agree or disagree with the author's known principles. The invention/discovery of any viable (res)solution of the Matter of Marriage and US necessitates an accurate understanding of the reasoning and First Principles of both sides, at the very least.
I strongly encourage like-minded people to compose and disseminate their ideas like this. I will support you, tangibly and intangibly.
