Happy is good. Holy is better.
Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person. It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God better, trust him more fully, and love him more deeply. What if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy . . . but holy?
Sacred Marriage doesn't just offer techniques to make a marriage happier. It does contain practical tools, but what married Christians most need is help in becoming holier husbands and wives. Sacred Marriage offers that help with insights from Scripture, church history, time tested wisdom from Christian classics, and examples from today's marriages.
Sacred Marriage reveals how marriage trains us to love God and others well, how it exposes sin and makes us more aware of God's presence, how good marriages foster good prayer, how married sex feeds the spiritual life, and more.
The revised edition of Sacred Marriage takes into account the ways men's and women's roles have expanded since the book was first written. It has been streamlined to be a faster read without losing the depth that so many readers have valued.
Sacred Marriage uncovers the mystery of God’s overarching purpose. This book may very well alter profoundly the contours of your marriage. It will most certainly change you. Because whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God, and to a spiritual integrity that, like salt, seasons the world around you with the savor of Christ.
- Great book, but difficult to listen to narrator
This is a great book but there is a feeling of constant "urgency" in the author's narration that made it difficult to listen to for any length of time. I was glad when the book ended, specifically for that reason.
- Must read/listen or both
It approaches marriage from a different perspective than most marriage books. The idea that God desire is for us to be holy not happy is different. It also reshapes all the arguments and struggles that married couples face. It also reshapes how we deal with those challenges. Even if your spouse does not read/listen to it, the book's content will help reshape your marriage framework. You cannot read it without being challenged.
- MUST read for all married couples. Highly recommend.
Easy to read. Super practical and insightful. No sugar coating of God's purpose for a blessed and sacred marriage. Anyone going through any marital conflicts must read this book.
