Marriage and Christian Life is an introduction to the theology of Christian marriage. It is a work in systematic theology, articulating the meaning of marriage from the perspective of the Roman Catholic intellectual tradition. As a sacrament, marriage is salvific, a means of entering into the death and resurrection of Christ, the event of the New Covenant by which all are saved. It is the redemptive nature of this spousal love that is revealed in the New Covenant that orders the love of the husband and wife. In this love, the true meaning of human sexuality is revealed. Designed to describe the meaning of marriage as a sacrament, author Daniel Hauser consciously contrasts the Catholic view of sexuality with contemporary views of marriage and sexuality. Using the teachings of Pope John Paul II on sexuality, and Fr. Donald Keefe's "Covenant Theology" as the foundation for developing the theology of marriage and the corresponding understanding of human theology, Dr. Hauser presents a theology developed to support the Christian view of marriage.
