What the Critics Say

"Informed by the riches of the Christian tradition and shaped...by Gaillardetz's own experience of marital commitment and family life, this insightful exercise in the theology of marriage is shot through with earthly spiritual wisdom." (Dr. Michael Downey, Professor of Systematic Theology and Spirituality, St. John's Seminary, Camarillo, Calif.)
"[O]ne of the best books on Christian marriage I have ever read. It is a wonderful synthesis of theological understanding and practical experience--astute, wise and easy to read." (Sidney Callahan, Ph.D., psychologist and columnist for Commonweal)
"The best teachers I've had are the ones who are able to put names and labels to ideas I know but cannot readily express. This is just what Rick Gaillardetz has done in A Daring Promise." (Leif Kehrwald, author of Marriage and the Spirituality of Intimacy)
