Defending Marriage: Twelve Arguments for Sanity is a rousing, compelling defense of traditional, natural marriage.
Here, Anthony Esolen, professor at Providence College and a prolific writer, uses moral, theological, and cultural arguments to defend this holy and ancient institution, bedrock of society - and to illuminate the threats it faces from modern revolutions in law, public policy, and sexual morality.
In Defending Marriage, Esolen expertly and succinctly identifies the cultural dangers of gay marriage and the Sexual Revolution which paved its way. He offers a stirring defense of true marriage, the family, culture, and love - and provides the compelling arguments that will return us to sanity, and out of our current morass.

"Excellent and thorough discussion on the topic"
Anthony Esolen presents a very coherent case in defense of traditional marriage. This is worth listening to again and again to make sure you have mastered the material. Mr. Esolen does this with a well-reasoned book that explores the logical conclusions that one must accept if one embraces the modern variations of marriage. He explains the unintended consequences of these variations, consequences that naturally flow from the policies being pursued. This requires deep thinking about the issues, and this is sorely needed in a society where too many people base their decisions on emotional appeals. This book helps the reader to consider the many aspects of marriage and its importance to children's rights and society.
"Truth with reason."
This book gives flesh on the ever present argument of the sanctity of marriage. A Captivating performance by Kevin Spalding, this audio book gives sound defense every Catholic will need in their debate against a secular cynical world.
"Great audio book. content and delivery is great."
great audio book. sound reasoning and logic. you will not be disappointed with this audio book.
"Arguments were strong but more defense?"
The arguments were hard to follow sometimes. I got some of the points but was not sure if I captured all of what the author intended. I felt I was jumping back and forth with the information and I was not getting everything the author was trying to express. The arguments seem to be a stretch sometimes as well. I would have loved to hear more of how to defend marriage and protect the sacrament. What simple steps can be taken such as giving more than you receive.
