Item description for Sex And The Marriage Covenant: A Basis for Morality by John F. Kippley...

The thesis of this book is that God intends that sexual intercourse should be at least implicitly a renewal of the marriage covenant. From this it follows that the marriage covenant provides the criterion to evaluate the morality of every sexual act. Thus the title, Sex and the Marriage Covenant, is an appropriate description of the book's contents. Marriage comes into being by a couple unreservedly entering God's covenant of marriage; contraceptive intercourse contradicts the very essence of the marriage covenant. From these considerations, Kippley developed the covenant theology of sexuality described in this book.

Reviews - What do customers think about Sex And The Marriage Covenant: A Basis for Morality?

Nobody said true teachings are easy teachings.  Jan 18, 2001
John Kippley, both in this book and with his his organization, the Couple to Couples League International, has done a great service for Catholic couples during our age of high dissent. To get an idea of how powerful an argument this book gives, I may mention that this was the book that started Scott Hahn on his path to Catholicism (his review appears on the inside back cover).

Kippley proves his case from every conceivable angle; from scriptural covenant theology, from the Magisterium, and from scripture directly. While he is presenting his case, he does a wonderful job dispelling objections, handling the hard cases, and putting an end to the propoganda that our liberal society pits against what they like to call "Papal roulette", or Natural Family Planning.

I very highly recommend this book for couples, singles, and teachers who are interested in this topic. Whether you are unconvinced but are sincere in following God's will (Catholic or Protestant), or if you are already convinced and would like a more effective tool with which you can share this teaching with others, this book is for you.

informative but a little far out  Oct 23, 1999
Book makes some excellent points on marriage and sexuality but it reminds me of the saying "marriages are made in heaven but lived on earth". Author has some outdated theories that catholic couples still feel that they have to have intercourse with each other because they have given the gift of themselves to each other. Very hard to do sometimes when you have several kids and are worn out. Does have some good points in it, but I wonder if the author is married?
A thorough, loving, and helpful book on marital relations  Mar 3, 1999
As a mathematics teacher and engineer, I appreciated the straightforwardness, the logic and above all the thoroughness of this book. All married couples, couples contemplating marriages, teachers and ministers, that have any belief in God, should read it. Detailed history is presented on the use of contraceptives and why they were feared not only by the religious leaders of all faiths but also the general public. Calvin, Luther and other prominent Protestants as well as Roman Catholics are quoted. The insights of the religious leaders of by gone years are phenomenal in that these people predicted that the use of contraceptives in marriage would lead to the break down of marriage, the abuse of women and wide spread promiscuous behavior. Mr. Kippley also shows the readers, in a very lovely way, many aspects of marriage. These aspects along with a healthy and sacred view of conjugal relations will help all couples over the tough times and lead to a more loving and caring society.
A must-read for every Christian couple.  May 11, 1998
A book which explains why contraception is wrong, and much more. Exposes the abortifacient nature of most contraceptive devices. Very valuable indeed.
