The increasing secularization of marriage has created a neglect of its theological dimension in favor of the psychological, sociological and anthropological. And the Church, when reflecting on the ethics of marriage, often seems to concentrate on sexual morality at the expense of marital theology. The Mystery of Christian Marriage is about the theology of Christian marriage. It tries to answer the question: What is God's vision of Christian marriage? Reflecting the dynamics of relationship in the Trinity, the basis of marriage is always family and relationships, with love at its heart. Key to our understanding of this mystery is the definition at Vatican II that marriage is a covenant-a definition that we find richly illuminated in the writings of the Fathers, in our sacramental tradition, and in the biblical concept of marriage.Peter Jeffery explores in depth the Catholic tradition which has shaped our teaching and our living, following two principal themes-marriage as covenant, and family as a domestic church. He shows how the family, with all its relationships, is sacramental; it is here that Christian marriage goes beyond creation to salvation. It is a participation in the new creation brought about by Christ. This is the dynamic sign that Christian marriages give to the world.
