Does anyone know any good books on living an interfaith marriage, by interfaith, I mean Catholic/Protestant?
Here are some titles that cover the subject. Obviously not all titles are in 100% perfect but they are in order of date of publication:
Double Belonging: Interchurch Families and Christian Unity, by George Kilcourse. Paulist Press, 1992.ISBN 0-8091-3292-3 (Author is a priest and former Ecumenical Director)
How to Survive Being Married to a Catholic, by Michael Henesy and Rosemary Gallagher. Liguori, 1997. ISBN 0-7648-0107-4
Interchurch Marriages: Their Ecumenical Challenge and Significance for Our Churches, by Report of the National Dialogue between the Roman Catholic Church and the Uniting Church in Australia. Uniting Church Press and St. Pauls, 1999. ISBN 1-876295-24-4
Interchurch Families: Resources for Ecumenical Hope, ed. by John C. Bush and Patrick R. Cooney, Catholic/Reformed Dialogue in the United States. Westminster John Knox Press & USCCB, 2002. ISBN 0-664-22562-4 (Cooney is a Catholic bishop)
United in Heart, Divided in Faith: A Guide for Catholic-Protestant Couples, Sandra L. Stanko. Sun Creek Books, 2003. ISBN 1-932057-03-X (Author is in a mixed marriage. Gives the most practical information and conversation starters. Lacks a fully orthodox understanding of the theological disputes and this weakens the overall effort of the book)
When a Catholic Marries a Non-Catholic, Robert J. Hater. St. Anthony Messenger Press, 2006. ISBN 978-0-86716-678-1(Author is a priest. This book has the permission of the auxiliary bishop of Cincinatti but none of the titles have an imprimatur or nihil obstat.)
After 15 plus years things have settled done in my mixed marriage. Some of the suggestions can be helpful but ultimately it has to work for the two spouses. One can’t expect the churches to cheer us on if we flagrantly break the rules but there are good eggs on both sides that can help pastor us through the challenges.
