This book I actually WON from an online contest from Pat Gohn's amazing blog, The Back Porch! Contraception and Catholicism, is a very short book that shares the stance of the Catholic church on the use of contraception and why Mother Church takes this stance. But this book does not stop there! Written by the director of theology programs for the TINE (Techonological Institute for a New Evangelization) as St. John's Seminary in Boston, Dr. Angela Franks, gives the basic truths about effects of the use of contraception based on the most current scientific and sociological research.
The truth of the matter is there is nothing earth-shattering in this book when considering the teachings of the Catholic Church. However, the way science and sociology is supporting the Church's beliefs, is something I had not read before. It's a view that makes logical sense to the most practical minds and it a great book for parents of teenage children (both girls AND boys) to discuss with their children.
Although, the science lover in myself, would have loved to have MORE information on the studies conducted and cited in this book I still must give this book...
