Overview

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.

  • Provides compelling arguments for the ongoing relevance of Christian belief in society
  • Addresses key practical questions all Christians wrestle with in their journey of faith
Incredibly rich with wisdom and insight that will leave the reader, whether single or married, feeling uplifted.

    Fantastic book, just what you would expect from the Keller's. Biblically based but equally important, they clearly, practically and rather thoroughly explain why the God's design for marriage works and why and where our culture, both church and secular, are failing and then they provide suggestions for the church to support both marriages and singles. Some footnotes for further reading though this is not a theology book, still this is must reading for pastors, married couples and singles all.
