Reviews

'For theologians interested in the history of sacramental theology, this monograph is a [must-read] ... Philip L. Reynolds is an historical theologian and here he gives a masterly and accessible demonstration of what the his-torical theologian does and why he does it ... One of the great, perhaps unintended, benefits of [Reynolds'] monograph is that it contributes vast theological data and analysis to demonstrate yet one more time doctrinal development in the Catholic Church ... this is a carefully researched and meticulously detailed history of the theology of the sacrament of marriage.' Michael G. Lawler, Marriage, Families and Spirituality
