Praise for Contraception and Catholicism

Contraception and Catholicism: What the Church Teaches and Why is a much-needed resource that offers clarity and understanding for one of the Church’s most misunderstood teachings. In this volume, Dr. Angela Franks gives us an intelligent, calm, and thoughtful response to the toughest questions concerning the Church’s teachings on birth control. I have enjoyed reading this book, and I encourage anyone who has questions or doubts about the Church’s teaching to sit down and read this volume. Dr. Franks writes about sexual ethics in a way that engages and even entertains. Most importantly, however, her arguments and examples challenge all of us to deeper conversion and holiness in Christ. The Church’s teaching on contraception is an invitation for all of us to embrace God’s will, which will bring us true happiness and peace. Contraception and Catholicism will be a rich resource for men and women of all ages who seek an ever-deeper appreciation for the gift of human sexuality and for the treasure of the Church’s teaching on sexual ethics. It’s a great example of a new style of apologetics, one which engages the mind and heart and helps us to articulate our Christian beliefs, especially those that are often misunderstood or ignored.”

— Cardinal Seán O’Malley, OFM Cap.,
Archbishop of Boston

“If you have ever thought the Church’s attitude toward birth control methods was dumb, dated, or not dealing with reality, I dare you to read this book! It is brain food for a renewed sex life. In Contraception and Catholicism: What the Church Teaches and Why, Angela Franks, PhD, offers reasoned explanations for why the Church is not a killjoy when it comes to sexual love. Plus, this book offers compelling evidence for why contraception is rooted in fear that slowly destroys loving relationships between men and women by demonizing human fertility and the female body in particular. Highly recommended.”

Celebrating the Gift of Catholic Womanhood

“Dr. Franks’ explanation of the Church’s teaching on contraception is revolutionary. She appeals to nature, reality, and common sense—all of which make her argument incredibly persuasive and fun to read. This book is a must-read for all young men and women who truly desire to know the meaning and purpose of sex.”

— Katie Elrod, contributor to Women, Sex, and the Church: A Case for Catholic Teaching and presenter on natural fertility treatment

“In 1968, Pope Paul VI was a prophet among us who tried to prevent heartache and social breakdown. We didn’t listen. Angela Franks helps us pick up the pieces and to begin again, where we are. Contraception and Catholicism: What the Church Teaches and Why is an essential primer in our ongoing, much-needed, post-sexual-revolution renewal.”
