What is Christian marriage all about?

How can I know if I have found the right person to marry?

Is it true that divorced people are excluded from the Church?

20 Answers: Marriage and Sex provides a solid introduction to what marriage is, why it’s important, and how to make it work. It also gives sure guidance through today’s minefield of sexual sin and confusion, showing God’s way to marital happiness—and holiness.

The 20 Answers series from Catholic Answers offers hard facts, compelling arguments, and clear explanations of the most important topics facing the Church and the world—all in a compact, easy-to-read package

20 Answers: Marriage and Sex is simply an outstanding primer on the truth, goodness, and beauty of marriage for anyone of good will. Firmly rooted on the meaning of natural and Sacramental marriage, Todd Aglialoro deftly weaves together the Scriptures - Old Testament and New - with the Catechism, history, social science, and the saints into a compelling witness to all that God has created for us. It is eminently readable because it asks and answers the questions that people are actually asking. I know. I have heard them over the past 25 years of marriage, NFP, and Theology of the Body ministry. I now include 20 Answers: Marriage and Sex as one of my Top 10 resources for marriage preparation and enrichment. It is that good. Faithful Catholics will recognize the traditional language and phrases of marriage and sexuality, but will now “connect the dots” to understand marriage within the tapestry of the whole Salvation Story. Aglialoro does a wonderful job rescuing difficult, countercultural teachings on marriage and sex from mere “imposed morality" by inviting the reader to see the Church’s teachings as logical, reasonable, coherent, and true. And not just true, but beautiful and hopeful! Even difficult topics such as divorce, adultery, contraception, and same-sex “marriage” can be understood in light of what we hope for in love, life, now and forever. I joyfully recommend 20 Answers: Marriage and Sex as a resource for everyone working in marriage, family, youth, and young adult ministry. - Damon Owens, Executive Director, joytob.org

Yet many Catholics, perhaps intimidated by its unfamiliar terms and traditions, remain ignorant of its beliefs. 20 Answers: Judaism dispels that ignorance with a helpful overview of Judaism’s history, its forms of worship and sources of doctrine, its various movements from biblical times to today, and more.

    Scriptural Head-Scratchers

What are the two basic interpretation problems we encounter when we read the Bible?

How can we deal with difficulties arising from translation differences, copyist errors, and varying literary genres?

Can we really say the Bible is inerrant when it seems to contain so many internal contradictions about allegedly factual events?

How do we explain apparent errors in Scripture on matters of science and history, or moral problems concerning violence or women’s rights?

The Bible is a source of wisdom, inspiration, and comfort. As Catholics we also believe it is God’s inerrant word. But sometimes we read something that just makes us say, “Huh?” 20 Answers: Bible Difficulties helps clear up the confusion by giving you the tools to recognize—and reconcile—common kinds of Bible difficulties, and by addressing the specific ones that most often embolden skeptics and dismay believers.
