LOVE, SKILL AND MYSTERY

...subtitled ""A Handbook to Marriage"", this book, previously published in Europe, by a Swiss physician, a Protestant, assumes as its thesis that"" love should govern the whole field of sexuality and that God should govern the whole field of love"". In considering: Love and Marriage, the differences between Men and Women. The Fellowship of Love. The Fruit of Marriage. Crisis in Marriage and the Mystery of Marriage. Dr. Bovet attempts to demonstrate that the ""ultimate meaning of marriage consists in the reciprocal inner development of two married persons with the object of doing God's will together"". A perceptive treatment.
