the author does a great job of going through the complexities of marriage from a conservative Bible loving perspective.
having been divorced (no fault of the author) and remarried (thanks to the author), I've read this book before and during each marriage, never ceases to amaze hope the book comes more alive reach time.
there even is a great section on dating that he briefly goes over as well as understanding God's design for this sacred union. He doesn't shy away from taboo topics such as woman's roles (authored by his wife) and sex. i appreciated their vulnerability in sharing their life on both.
highly recommended for those who are single and not even dating, to those married as well as relational stages between. definitely a treasure to reread over and over, alone, together with your spouse, or in a book club.
This has been probably the best book on marriage I have read. Mr. Kellers insight and wisdom makes the book enjoyable and probably will listen to it multiple times just in case I missed anything.
This is one of the best books have read on marriage. It has truly open my mind about the God's meaning of marriage. I highly recommended it to married couples and couples that will be getting married.

I have read a number of books on marriage over the years, but this book has truly given me insight that I didn't get from the other books. What I love about this book. Is that it is perfect for married people and for singles searching a spouse.
loved it. wish I would have found this book years ago. whether you have a good marriage or one that's in trouble you should read this book
well written with plenty of verse references, the male and female perspective is particularly helpful and usuful. This book biblically addresses a plethora of topics for the married and the single and does a great job examining cultural and progressive ideologies and comparing them to God's design and intent. I have listened to it once through and plan to listen to it with my wife. I would definitely recommend this book for other believers new to marraige or advanced in years, the truths of God's word ring through and through.
Great book, highly recommend. Now part of my premarital materials for counseling. Theologically sound and practical
Tim Keller provides the Bible's strikingly relevant view on all things marriage. Pausing this book every 30 seconds to ponder the depth of what the listener has just heard should be expected. Couples who share even a moderate level of honesty about their relationship will very likely laugh out loud, feeling both convicted and encouraged by the deep truth of what it means to be in God's version of marriage. For example, "helper" - in Genesis describing Eve's role - is better translated "reinforcement without which the battle would be lost". Wow! Thank you, Kathy and Tim.
This book is great to read at any point in marriage. I plan to revisit it yearly with my wife so that our marriage gets stronger!
