An area that many parishes find difficult to handle is that of marriage preparation. There is either far too much emphasis or none at all. This is usually because we lack sensible and realistic resources to run successful marriage preparation. Now the Church of England has updated the preparation booklet and brought a multi media presentation which should provide all the answers, both for the couples and for those leading the preparation. The larger of the booklets provides specific blocks of work for the leader to prepare and run classes, the smaller booklet can be given to the couple to read at leisure and prepare themselves, or if time is lacking. There is also a CD for the tutor to use as a presentation as part of the course. The course is sensible, useful, practical and readable and the author does deal with all those awkward questions that couples may ask - children, sex, conflict, roles, and faith and so on. Highly recommended with a very good resource section at the back as well.
