Thoroughly revised and updated in this second edition, Perspectives on Marriage is an ideal text for courses in the theology and spirituality of marriage. The new edition of this multidisciplinary reader features twenty new articles and represents the best of contemporary perspectives on marriage and sexuality. It is comprehensive and flexibly designed to accommodate a variety of approaches, from the strictly historical and canonical to the sociological, psychological, and ministerial. Striking a balance between solid theological material and stimulating readings on current issues, the essays explore marriage in its historical context; the meanings and transitions of marriage; attitudes toward sexuality; communication, conflict, and change; overcoming stereotypes; divorce and annulment; the spirituality of marriage; and interreligious perspectives on marriage. The volume is enhanced by the editors' introductions and discussion questions. Rich, provocative, and challenging, Perspectives on Marriage, 2/e is the most extensive and up-to-date reader of its kind.
