Anything from the pen of Father Martindale has a communicative informality that wins the reader. However, the substance of things in the book on wedlock is not neglected. In other words, Father Martindale in Wedlock goes to first principles, distinguishing things that never change from the changing and mutable. In 63 pages readers will find a clear-cut expression of Catholic doctrine and the very sources for official pronouncements, councils, the scriptures, etc. It is intellectually satisfying.
