Abstract:     
This is a brief review of an important text by one of the leading Christian scholars of the family who is trying to reconcile traditional Christian teachings on marriage and the troubling marital condition in the post-modern West. Thatcher ultimately commends the traditional Christian monogamous, heterosexual, permanent marriage, citing Scripture and various leading Christian theologians of the present and past. But he also offers creative new ways of thinking about engagements contracts, non-marital cohabitation, premarital sex, and more.
