Married For God: Making Your Marriage The Best It Can Be
It seems rather obvious to look to our Maker for marriage instructions. After all, God invented marriage. Yet by nature we prefer to work it out for ourselves, starting with our own needs, hopes and desires.
This book turns our thinking upside down. The author examines the Bible's teaching on marriage, while remaining firmly earthed in the twenty-first-century world where messing up, heartbreak, divorce and sexual chaos are distressingly common. Starting with God's grace applied to our pain and failure, the author centres on God's plan for sex and marriage, one of service.
'Refreshing, rigorous and readable. This book acts as a corrective to exaggerated claims and self-indulgent attitudes concerning wedlock endemic in our culture and becomes a call to joyful biblical simplicity and true God-centred liberty in marriage.'
John Benton (Pastor, Chertsey Street Baptist Church, Guildford and Editor, Evangelicals Now) and Ann Benton (Chairman, London Women's Convention)
'An excellent, challenging and helpful book.' Martin and Elizabeth Goldsmith, Conference Speakers, and Associate Lecturers, All Nations Christian College
