Chapter one analyses institutional responses to interfaith marriage, looking closely at the responses of Reform Judaism, the American Catholic Church, and the Protestant mainline. It reveals that while all three traditions framed the problem of intermarriage in theological terms, their different belief systems and social locations resulted in divergent and sometimes opposing responses to interfaith marriage.
