The Meaning of Marriage

The new book edited by Robert P. George and Jean Bethke Elshtain, The Meaning of Marriage: Family, State, Market and Morals, is well worth perusing. For the short-and-sweet version of the message, you might want to consult this week's two-part ZENIT interview with George, who is McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University, and also serves on President Bush's Council on Bioethics. Click for Part I, Part II.

I TA'ed for Prof. George eighteen years ago, and knew even then he was a rising Catholic star in academia. It's heartening to have such people on your side.
