With the announcement of the extraordinary synod of bishops, 2014-2015, Pope Francis placed "marriage and family" at the center of ecclesial attention and a somewhat turbulent discussion was ignited. This volume examines the most important issues of this discussion. Edited by George Augustin, there are original contributions from Walter Kasper, Christoph Schnborn, Gerhard Ludwig Muller, Cathleen Kaveny, Terrence Keeley, Thomas Krafft, Thomas Sding, Reinhard Marx, and Kurt Koch.
