From the New York Times best-selling author of The Reason for God.
In previous books, respected New York pastor and best-selling author Timothy Keller has looked at such diverse and topical subjects as the existence of God, our need to do justice, the meaning of Jesus' life, and the human temptation to make idols - all through the twin lenses of a biblical framework and an engagement with contemporary culture.
In this new book, coauthored with his wife, Kathy, he turns his attention to that most complex of matters: our need for love and its expression in marriage.
Beginning with the biblical narrative and its pictures of marriage that span the original ideal to the broken to the redemptive, he looks at themes of friendship and commitment; the completion of men and women in each other; singleness, sex and divorce; and ministry and discipleship within the context of marriage. This is a profound and engaging work that will challenge and inspire people in all stages of life - single, newlywed and married.

this is one of the most useful books on marriage that I've read as a single women. or is a book very much for single people as well as married people. it is a useful book for anyone Posey of a church family to read to better know how to interact as a church family of married and single people. I'd highly recommend it to anyone!
Marriage is tricky without some kind of guidance. This book provides an excellent foundational framework with which to think about the marriage relationship as a single, married, or as one who have been married in the past.
"one of the Best books of Christian Marriage"
I thoroughly enjoyed this book
it approached the subject with a sound grasp of biblical detail
also giving a practical view point on things and the analogies used were very effective.
after reading this I feel like I have more clarity and am encouraged to hope for a Christian Marriage one day
a totally essential read for both couples and singles to gain wisdom on marriage from God's perspective.
I've been married for more than seventeen years and I had no idea what it was about. It is an expression of divine love.
I read the book three times (I'm a slow learner) and now, listened to it; I highly recommended it.
Lloyd James is an excellent narrator.
Timothy Keller and Kathy Keller make the theme free from confuse or ambiguity.
Even if you're not a Christian, you can benefit from it.
