Product description

Renowned pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and author of the forthcoming "Every Good Endeavor," Timothy Keller with his wife of 36 years, delivers "The Meaning of Marriage," an extraordinarily insightful look at the keys to happiness in marriage that will inspire Christians, skeptics, singles, long-time married couples, and those about to be engaged. Modern culture would make 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; that starting over after a divorce is the best solution to seemingly intractable marriage issues. All those modern-day assumptions are, in a word, wrong.Using the Bible as his guide, coupled with insightful commentary from his wife of thirty-six years, Kathy, Timothy Keller shows that God created marriage to bring us closer to him and to bring us more joy in our lives. It is a glorious relationship that is also the most misunderstood and mysterious. With a clear-eyed understanding of the Bible, and meaningful instruction on how to have a successful marriage, "The Meaning of Marriage" is essential reading for anyone who wants to know God and love more deeply in this life. Just as this book is based on his popular sermon series, so will his Encounters with Jesus series, the first of which, "The Skeptical Student "comes out in December.
