Book Reviews by Dr Pravin Thevathasan
It is precisely a "guide" because children vary and there is no one way to teach. When and how to teach varies from child to child. Surely this is reason enough to question the basis of class-room sex education. The guide also makes it clear that the foundation of good sex education is the Catholic Faith.
A meditation on the biblical story of Tobias and Sarah leads us from the spiritual to the practical.
The section " What is marriage?" relies largely on secular sources. Presumably this
is so that we may argue our case with non-Catholics. The one point of concern is when the author writes that "No
same-sex couple is being stopped, by virtue of same-sex marriage not existing in a particular country, from declaring
their relationship and their love for one another, and living together in a sexual relationship." The Church
does not support same-sex civil unions.
