Marriage and the Common Good

Whitehead, Kenneth D., editor

This volume consists of the addresses delivered to the 22nd Annual Convention of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars held in Chicago in September 1999. Each chapter includes a discussion of one of the major themes related to the contemporary question of marriage and the common good expounded by a competent senior scholar, followed by a response on the same subject by a younger scholar. The end result is an in-depth treatment of several of the major issues that concern marriage and the family today.

The major subjects covered include marriage, fatherhood, the threat of so-called homosexual “marriages,” women’s roles, economics, and birth control. Speakers included Alice von Hildebrand, David Blankenhorn, Robert P. George, Jean Bethke Elshtain, and William E. May. The convention keynoter was Stratford Caldecott.
