      There are 2 kinds of opponents of the gay marriage (and by extension LGBT equality) movement.The 1st kind is the likes of Bryan J. Fischer of the Amer Family Association and Todd Starnes of Fox News,these ghouls would scare the bejesus out of U with their anti LGBT bigotry and the 2nd kind is younger 'cool dudes' who give exactly the same bigoted homophobic msg in a civil and polite language,Ryan T.Anderson belongs to this category!He poses as the 'intellectual face' of the conservative movement [...]

    2. The American Conservative on said:

      Ryan T. Anderson has written what will become the standard argument for traditional marriage. Truth Overruled: The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom is his rational explanation of what marriage is, why it is essential to society, and why it is necessary to enshrine the traditional position in law.His most important contribution is to identify the two fundamentally competing views of marriage that uncomfortably co-exist in America today. The first is the traditional view of the permanent, [...]

    3. Bowen Greenwood on said:

      InspirationalThis is an excellent collection of resources for the ongoing work of promoting the culture of life and marriage. Chapter 8 was particularly inspiring. The author's ability to demonstrate love and human empathy for the people with whom he disagrees is admirable.

    4. Alicia on said:

      Amazing book. Ryan Anderson explains what marriage is, why it matters for public policy, and consequences of its legal redefinition. I am very saddened at the moral decay we are seeing in our country, including the illegitimate SCOTUS decision to legalize same-sex marriage. (I say "illegitimate" because courts are to interpret and apply the law, not MAKE the law. Because marriage isn’t even mentioned in the Constitution, each state should have the right to decide on same-sex marriage.) Gay peo [...]

    7. Dennis on said:

      Truth speaks to the honest in heart through clear and unmistakable terms, and it rings sweet and pure. I wish everyone would read Ryan T. Anderson's wise and reasoned conclusions about the truth of what marriage is, and about the future fight for that truth which, until just a few short years ago, was universally accepted throughout all time and in every society. Instead, the public has willingly plunged over the cliff in a grand experiment that sacrifices the wants and needs of children - who f [...]

    8. Brandon H. on said:

      When questioned about why they are against same sex marriage, many people of faith cite only their religious texts or creeds. Here in this book, Ryan T. Anderson makes a thoughtful and substantial case on why same sex marriage is bad for society without quoting the Bible. It's an apologetic for traditional marriage.He addresses the several negative effects S.S. M. (same sex marriage) has on societies from the substantial, negative effect it has on children, to how S.S.M. undermines traditional m [...]

    9. C.T. Casberg on said:

      A useful primer and reference guide to the conservative arguments in favor of maintaining traditional marriages as a matter of law. Anderson draws from philosophy, social sciences, court documents, and testimonies of members of the gay community and the children of gay parents to argue that marriage, as defined as the union of a man and a woman, is a pre-political institution recognized across time and space as a unique social good worth preserving. Anderson also provides a catalog of various or [...]

    10. Simon on said:

      Dr Anderson is the best I've come across at trying to find non-religious arguments for supporting heterosexual monogamous marriage (I refuse to use the term "traditional marriage") and nor legally recognising same-sex marriage. And yet, his main argument (that kids grow up better on average in households with their biological, married parents, and so government should only recognise heterosexual, monogamous marriages to support child development) strikes me as rather authoritarian and also as pr [...]

    11. Luis Espinoza on said:

      I believe this is a great summary of the current situation regarding same-sex marriage and the consequences for religious liberty, regardless if you are for or against the issue. But the scope of the book is too broad, every chapter deserves its own book and I don´t think Anderson manages to exhaust in any way each of the subjects. If you´re not exposed to the current situation and its latest development (as of today) this book is perfect to understand the arguments for traditional marriage, a [...]

    12. Heather on said:

      Truth Overruled is a clear, well-reasoned, comprehensive response to the redefinition of marriage--currently to include homosexual relationships, potentially to include any deeply committed pairing or group of adults. Ryan Anderson lays out historical, judicial, philosophical, logical, biological, and sociological evidence to support the view of marriage as the monogamous, exclusive, permanent union of a man and woman. Only after the case has clearly been made from these humanistic sources does [...]

    13. Laura on said:

      Lots of good information in here, and a strong rebuttal to the left's claims -- always look at the other side of things, folks.Backed by a huge amount of research, Anderson refutes popular theories and goes to bat for religious believers' rights. He does get a bit repetitive from time to time, but I attribute a lot of that to the simple likelihood that many people would only read through a couple of chapters depending on what they might be looking for.He also does this with mainly secular argume [...]

    14. Zachary Hanje on said:

      I really enjoyed Ryan Anderson's new book. I found it to be so thoroughly researched, his logic to be well-thought out, and his passion to be visible.A couple of the middle chapters dealing more with "policy" issues felt heavy to me, but likely because I'm not too knowledgeable in that area. That isn't to say I didn't understand them. I thought his reasoning was convincing and it would be interesting to hear counterpoints to it.I have personally benefited much from Anderson's previous book and f [...]

    15. Joe on said:

      ExcellentA winsome and erudite presentation of a view that takes no little share of bravery to express publicly nowadays, this book is an exemplary witness of how to "speak the truth with love." Ultimately, in reading it, one is inspired to hope that, though for the time being the truth about marriage and sexuality has been "overruled," the final victory of Truth - of which we are assured by Faith - shall not be long delayed. It will simply take people taking Dr. Anderson's arguments to heart, l [...]

    16. Klaus Berckholtz on said:

      Muy buen libro. Con una serie de argumentos sensatos y de sentido común muestra por qué el matrimonio debe ser el enlace integral, estable y duradero entre un hombre y una mujer. Lejos de todo fanatismo religioso, actitud intolerante o discriminación, el autor fundamenta de manera sencilla y convincente cómo la "redefinición" del matrimonio entre personas del mismo sexo socava el bien común y compromete el futuro de la sociedad, atentando especialmente contra los derechos y el bienestar de [...]

    17. Tom on said:

      Excellent overview of the challenges facing those who believe "traditional" marriage is essential to a well functioning civil society. His arguments are clear, well-supported and helpful to all who would see marriage remain as it has for all human history - between a man and a woman. He calls the reader to act in defense of marriage in order to save society and most importantly the family and children. If you want to be able to clearly articulate your belief about marriage as being between one m [...]

    18. Bob on said:

      Mr. Anderson presents the issue of re-defining marriage in a clear and thoughtful manner. He presents the strong reasons why the definition should remain as it has for thousands of years without demonizing those who have a different view. He also clearly describes what the consequences will be of this SOTUS decisions, consequences that will challenge the very existence of this nation.If the issue had been framed as Mr. Anderson has framed it in this book the out come may have been different.

    19. Eric on said:

      Anderson has laid out relatively clearly, almost overwhelming, how the Obergefehl decision of the Supreme Court has placed the North American piece of Western Civilization and certainly most of American Christendom in the sites of progressive elites and made them the target that they cannot allow to live in their plunge into the depravity of self. He closes with some small encouragement, but it is daunting to contemplate the hole out of which we must dig.

    20. James Pomykalski on said:

      Thought provoking and well research analysis of the gay marriage movement. The book does have a Catholic church perspective so the premise of the book is to show how the redefinition of marriage impacts families, especially children, and how the gay movement "bullies" those opposed to their point of view.It highlights points of consideration in order to try to combat this redefinition of marriage to included "unnatural" marriages.

    21. Kyle Hood on said:

      Great book. Well reasoned, and even better argued. It outlines the exact response that the pro-traditional marriage crowd should have. It also outlines the attacks that have already begun on religious liberty, and why they matter. I encourage everyone to read this book, even if you are pro-gay marriage.

    22. Brandon Olson on said:

      Excellent book. Ryan Anderson is part of the new generation of conservative intellectuals. In this book he provides a rationale argument against the recent marriage ruling and its impact on our society. A good read for both those who agree with or disagree with the Supreme Court's ruling. Mr Anderson offers perspectives not heard through all of the noise surrounding this issue.

    23. Adam Bradley on said:

      Natural law based critique of the Obergefell decision. Useful crib notes to some amicus briefs. Rightly locates the decision not in the strengths of any particular argument, but in the sexual revolution's cultural fallout -- the radical displacement of responsibilities with individual emotional gratification.

    24. Seth on said:

      Really fantastic. Anderson writes clearly and winsomely. I am not optimistic that the arguments he makes here will prevail in our culture over the next few decades--but that doesn't mean they are wrong. The center cannot hold with the new sexual orthodoxy, and I'm not sure Western Civ will survive intact short of a monumental moral and philosophical revolution back toward the truth.

    25. Tara Lofley on said:

      I really enjoyed this. Much like the pro-life argument didn't die after Roe Vs Wade, and main stream society respects the debate on that issue, I feel hopeful that the debate will resume regarding marriage as well. Anderson convinced me how necessary it is for a civilized discourse to continue. A great read for all.

    26. Matt Smith on said:

      Great WorkFive stars for clarity, documentation, and tone. The author is not a hater. Great defense of traditional marriage. Positive view of the future of this debate. Great read.

    27. Michael on said:

      Solid introductory-level offering, the kind of book to share with people who haven't given these issues much thought beyond whatever virtue-signalling they've been inundated with on social media. Chapter 7 is particularly good.

    28. Lee G on said:

      This book was fantastic and presented very logical arguments for the traditional and historical view of marriage as well as sobering statistics and testimonies. It also presented helpful ideas and advice on how to move forward. I highly recommend it.

    29. Alan on said:

      Excellent apologetic for traditional marriage and religious liberty. In a world where these things are considered archaic values, this book brings a refreshingly simple and intellectually sound defense for two traditional values that strengthen society at its core. Highly recommend.

    30. Ben on said:

      This is THE handbook for anyone troubled by the Supreme Court's decision on gay marriage and concerned about its effects. Anderson has an urgent message and he communicates in it the most concise, clear and accessible way possible. This is a must read.
