Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent historical treatment  Oct 12, 2009
If you're looking for a book that panders to prevailing contemporary sentiments about what a traditional Catholic or Jewish wedding should be, this is not your book, as the parish pastor's review above attests. Rather, this is a thorough and fascinating intelligent treatment of religious cultural traditions for anyone who might be interested, including pastors who might want to offer some guidance to their parishioners about the meaningful traditions of their own faith rather than simply let the tail of popular culture wag the dog. A brilliant treatment!
 
Slim chance that most brides will be interested  Oct 6, 2008
As a parish pastor, I got this volume to add to my set of resources for brides and grooms to consider when planning their wedding service. After reading it, I am convinced that most of it is a little too arcane for nearly all the couples I've ever dealt with. I guess if someone wanted a hyper-traditional wedding, it would be useful.
