“This book is exceptionally readable and thought-provoking. His discussion of the goods and ends of marriage alone are invaluable in today’s climate of redefining marriage, which for the Catholic Church has a distinct sanctity and sacramentality. Strongly recommended for university and seminary libraries.”―Darren G. Poley, Catholic Library World

“Monsignor Cormac Burke’s riveting book, The Theology of Marriage: Personalism, Doctrine, and Canon Law, is a must-read for couples in Pre-Cana, marriage counselors, and anyone involved in pastoral ministry who wants a fuller understanding of the sacrament… Monsignor Burke has written an exceptional book that will influence many across the board… I have already started to recommend this book to many of my colleagues as a great informer… couples who wish to better understand their faith should consider this book an indispensible companion to their Catechism.”―Harrison Denn, National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly

“Coming from a canon lawyer working at a high level in the Catholic church, Cormac Burke’s book is in many ways a refreshing argument for a recognition of the personalism which underpins much of Catholic teaching.”―Ray Temmerman, Winnipeg, Marriage, Families, and Spirituality


Cormac Burke is at Strathmore University, Nairobi, Kenya.


“With all the challenges to the understanding of marriage as given by God through Revelation and reason, and, with the high interest Pope Francis has taken in a renewed appreciation of married love and fidelity, Monsignor Burke’s work could not have come at a better time.” ―Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York

“Examines important issues concerning the Christian notion of marriage. Will be useful to canonists and to theologians who teach in the areas of marriage and family life.” ―The Rev. Msgr. John J. M. Foster, JCD, Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA
