Most of what the Bible has to say about marriage does not come flagged up under a heading of marriage. Its not just the famous marriage passages that shape a gospel-centred marriage, but the whole Bible-story of Gods good creation, humanitys wicked rebellion and Gods gracious redemption. To understand why marriages struggleas they all dowe need to understand the nature of our sin. To make marriages work, we need to understand how to apply the truth about God and His salvation. This study guide on Christian marriage focuses on how the Gospel shapes the practical realities of everyday life. Author Tim Chester lifts the lid on many of the common pressure points that modern couples face, and shows how a proper understanding of the Gospel can shape a response. Tim Chester is a pastor at Grace Church, Boroughbridge, UK; a faculty member of Crosslands Training; and is the author of over 30 books.
