MercatorNet Weekly Update

This week is a bumper issue of MercatorNet. It features
a special issue on courtship and marriage -- an
interview with well-known American family expert
Maggie Gallagher, helpful hints for teenage dating, and
a report on a Mexico City conference on educating children
for love.

Other topics in this week's issue include the real story
of a Harvard BA, a Muslim view of the new Pope, and an
interview with American columnist and TV personality Ramesh
Ponnuru about his new book on pro-life issues.

In the coming weeks, we will be running special issues on
the film version of the Da Vinci Code and on post-modernism.
Watch this space.

Cheers,
Michael Cook
