Based on his most popular sermon series, New York Times best-selling author Timothy Keller delivers an extraordinarily insightful look at the keys to happiness in marriage. Few subjects are as compelling-or as endlessly variable-as love and marriage. The Bible is filled with references to husbands and wives, from the story of Adam and Eve to advice in the New Testament, each open to interpretation. In The Meaning of Marriage, Timothy Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and bestselling author of The Reason for God, uses the scriptures as his guide to show readers what God's call to marriage is, and why this is such a powerful call. He talks in frank terms about the difficulties that couples have and how they can best work them out while keeping their faith in God intact. The Meaning of Marriage showcases Keller's vast understanding of the Bible and how it can not only be relevant to relationships today but also form the foundation of a modern, healthy, loving, and long- lasting marriage.
A roadmap to a biblical successful marriage
This is not some simple comedic view of marriage. This book shatters all delusions of marriage and puts relationships in it's proper biblical perspective by giving us the tools to successfully navigate a lifetime with our spouse like I have never seen before.
Keller has delivered one of the healthiest and most challenging perspectives on marriage to us in this modern age. His core focus of the gospel and its parallel of marriage is so deeply insightful that I have had to re-read several chapters with my bible open as the insight draws me back into the scripture. Worth the 5 star rating.
I listened to this on my commute while my wife read it on her kindle. We are now in our second year of marriage and it has been so encouraging to us to hear such a solid, biblical perspective. He starts by giving you a theological, biblical foundation of how to think about marriage and then moves into sharing stories and practical examples for how to be married in the day to day stuff.
