A new book, “What Is Marriage?: Man and Woman: A Defense,” by Sherif Girgis, Ryan T. Anderson, and Robert P. George, explains the reasons why marriage should only be between a man and a woman.
As Matthew Franck, National Review columnist, said in his Amazon review of this book, “[The authors] went to the core of the philosophical, moral, political, and legal debate over same-sex marriage, by asking the simple and disarming question, ‘what is marriage?’ And then they answered it, with cogent arguments that the word--and the institution it names--lose all their meaning if we no longer say that marriage is the union of a man and a woman. So far no one has come up with a convincing rebuttal of their arguments.”
As the debate continues to rage about same-sex marriage, it appears this is a timely book that will help bolster the arguments made by those who believe that marriage should only be between a man and a woman. It will also require those that think otherwise to come up with a reasonable and direct rebuttal to these arguments.
I haven’t read this book myself yet, but it is on the top of my reading stack, and I hope it goes to the top of yours as well.
