At a time when the institution of marriage is failing in our culture, Christians are making a renewed commitment to discover the richness of biblical marriages that are rooted in the divine life of the Trinity. In this collection of wedding sermons, Peter Leithart illuminates the subject from many perspectives, forming a loose, down-to-earth “systematic theology of marriage” that connects marriage with the doctrines of the Trinity, creation, salvation, sacraments, church, eschatology, and more. The result is a series of enlightening and invigorating exhortations for Christian couples at any stage of their married life.
