Overview

With over 50 percent of all marriages in the U.S. ending in divorce, there is enormous hurt and pain, and confusion and misperceptions about the Catholic church's teaching on marriage, divorce and declarations of nullity (annulment). To clarify church teaching on these subjects, a current tribunal director and canon lawyer has written a question and answer guide for Catholics who are marrying people who have been divorced or are unbaptized in the Christian faith, for Catholics who are divorced and seek to remarry, and for all those who minister to them.

In an easy-to-read format of questions and answers, with questions taken from real people's experiences, Vondenberger provides a clear and helpful handbook, based on her decades of experience working in the tribunal of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and from her consultative role with a Web site that provides information and opportunities for reconciliation and healing of marriage and divorce issues.

An appendix will include current canon law on these topics, making the book a quick reference for pastoral ministers, libraries, marriage counselors, etc.

    A helpful resource

    This helpful resource, which carries both the nihil obstat and imprimatur, is a great resource for anyone with questions on marriage, divorce and annulment issues within the Catholic church. Gleaned from the forums of a large web site, the topics posed in this question and answer format book are both relevant and common. Additionally, the book covers pre-marriage topics as well. The responses are offered in a concise and non-judgemental fashion, making the book both enjoyable to read and a good resource for those whose paths may have led them away from the Church.
