Synopsis

“Incredibly rich with wisdom and insight that will leave the reader, whether single or married, feeling uplifted.”—The Washington Times

Based on the acclaimed sermon series by New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller, this book shows everyone—Christians, skeptics, singles, longtime married couples, and those about to be engaged—the vision of what marriage should be according to the Bible.

Modern culture would have you believe that everyone has a soul mate; that romance is the most important part of a successful marriage; that your spouse is there to help you realize your potential; that marriage does not mean forever, but merely for now; and that starting over after a divorce is the best solution to seemingly intractable marriage issues. But these modern-day assumptions are wrong. Timothy Keller, with insights from Kathy, his wife of thirty-seven years, shows marriage to be a glorious relationship that is also misunderstood and mysterious. The Meaning of Marriage offers instruction on how to have a successful marriage, and is essential reading for anyone who wants to know God and love more deeply in this life.

Look out for Timothy Keller's latest book, The Songs of Jesus.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Good
Reviewed by Jonathan Holmes on Nov 23 2011

The Meaning of Marriage is imminently readable, sufficiently researched and grounded, yet it is saturated by the personal reflections and experiences of a husband and wife who have both been deeply impacted by the gospel of Jesus Christ.
