    Until today, no society had seen marriage as anything other than a conjugal partnership: a male-female union.

What Is Marriage? identifies and defends the reasons for this historic consensus and shows why redefining civil marriage is unnecessary, unreasonable, and contrary to the common good.

This book's core argument has already been cited and debated by scholars and activists throughout the world as the most formidable defense of the tradition ever written. It stands poised to meet its moment as few books of this generation have.

Rhodes Scholar Sherif Girgis, Heritage Foundation Fellow Ryan Anderson, and Princeton Professor Robert George offer a devastating critique of the idea that equality requires redefining marriage. They show why both sides must first answer the question of what marriage really is. They defend the principle that marriage, as a comprehensive union of mind and body ordered to family life, unites a man and a woman as husband and wife, and they document the social value of applying this principle in law.

Most compellingly, they show that those who embrace same-sex civil marriage leave no firm ground-none-for not recognizing every relationship describable in polite English, including polyamorous sexual unions, and that enshrining their view would further erode the norms of marriage, and hence the common good.

    In What Really Happens After We Die professor of Church history Dr. James Papandrea gathers in one place all that is known about the afterlife — drawn from the teachings of Jesus, the Apostles, the Church Fathers, and the Church’s Magisterium — affording, for the first time ever, a complete, authoritative, detailed portrait of the state of souls after death and the realms we enter.

The following are among the many questions he answers:

    If, as St. Paul says, “flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God,” how can our bodies enter Heaven?
    After death but before the final resurrection, are we simply unconscious?
    What is our resurrection like? (And does it differ from Jesus’ Resurrection?)
    Are ghosts real? (You’ll be surprised at what the Church Fathers have to say.)
    What is the difference between Heaven and Paradise?
    Which of our parts will accompany us to Heaven (and which must be left behind)?
    In Heaven, do we still eat and drink?
    If, as Jesus says, there’s no marrying in heaven, are we still male and female there?
    After our resurrection, will we, like Jesus, be able to pass through matter?
    And many more fascinating questions answered!
