Mystery of Marriage  A Theology of the Body and the Sacrament

Mystery of Marriage A Theology of the Body and the Sacrament

  • $6300


The Mystery of Marriage is a comprehensive Catholic theology of marriage. Dr. Perry Cahall presents a theology of marriage that incorporates biblical, historical, and systematic perspectives while drawing upon Scripture and Tradition, with particular attention given to the Theology of the Body of Saint John Paul II. There is a great deal of scholarly literature dealing with different aspects of marriage, and while there is an increasing amount of scholarship emerging on John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, there does not yet exist a book that attempts to show the implications of the Theology of the Body for a comprehensive theology of marriage. This book represents a fresh approach to presenting the sacramental theology of marriage with a broad scope and incorporates the invaluable insights of the Theology of the Body. A unique feature of this book is that from beginning to end it incorporates insights from John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, as well as his other writings in which he addressed marriage. Attention is also given to the Catechism of the Catholic Church and other recent magisterial texts pertaining to marriage so that the reader is presented with the Catholic Church’s most fully developed doctrine on marriage. This accessible book is an excellent resource for undergraduate, seminary, religious formation, diaconate formation, and lay education audiences.
