Sherif Girgis, Ryan Anderson, and I recently presented our new book What is Marriage? Man and Woman: A Defense (website: www.whatismarriagebook.com) at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, DC. Here is a link to the video: http://www.heritage.org/events/2013/01/what-is-marriage The book explains and defends the idea---embraced to be sure by Judaism and Christianity, but also by other traditions and many of their leading thinkers---of marriage as a conjugal union. Although it is a philosophical book that does not make appeals to revelation or religious authority, we are honored and gratified that its endorsers include Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Rabbis Meir Soloveichik and David Novak, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, and Evangelical Pastor Rick Warren.
