About this item

“The Catholic Church saved my marriage
and, quite possibly, my life.”

So begins David Anders in this remarkably forthright book. In it, David reports that by the early 2000s, his marriage was so painful he actually longed for death. It wasn’t simple incompatibility; he and his wife had just one thing in common: contempt for each other.

Today, David and his wife are happy together – not because of marriage therapy, but because they came to know and fully embraced the Catholic Church’s teachings on marriage.

Many people who encounter such teachings are shocked by their rigor. Yet the Church offers much more than rules about sexual restraint; she offers a way to make marriage into something supernatural, even mystical. 

Here Dr. Anders shares his personal discovery of the Church’s teaching on marriage and offers a robust defense of the Church’s most controversial teachings, including divorce, remarriage, gay marriage, and contraception.

With the Church’s teachings and the writings of the saints as his guide, he also offers practical, time-tested ways to improve your marriage, such as how to live in peace despite an unhappy marriage, the value of suffering, and ways to overcome your reluctance to forgive grave offenses.

In a culture that breaks apart marriages and undermines human dignity, Dr. David Anders offers a hope-filled alternative for those who live moral and spiritual lives in union with Christ and His Church.

In this book, Dr Anders delves deeply into the meaning and purpose of a sacramental marriage. As his story unfolds, we learn how important it is to invite God unto our marriage. I would especially recommend this to those who prepare couples for marriage.

This was a GREAT book! Dr. Anders is extremely intelligent. His very humble look at his marriage and his ability to explain his journey with heartfelt, yet incredibly poignant and learned discovery of how his religious beliefs affected his marriage was a joy to read. I am sure that anyone that is married can relate to his journey in some way or another, and learn a LOT about the Catholic view along the way. I didn't want to stop reading this book!

In his first book, Dr Anders supplies the reader with an unflinching view of how the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ transformed his marriage. I recommend the book for anyone who is interested in a personal example of the incredible things that God can do in our lives when we faithfully and eagerly embrace his sacraments. Thank you Dr Anders for your candor and your insight. I pray that God abundantly blesses you and your family.

This book tells the truth about marriage and the spiritual purpose of it. It also explains how God does, in fact, supply the graces that are NECESSARY to fulfill that purpose, if we cooperate with Him. If you want a quick and easy so-called fix (which won't work), look elsewhere. If you want to know the sometimes hard truths that can lead to real healing, read this, participate fully in the sacraments, and deepen your prayer life.
