    Story
    (7097)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Unreal story"

    Story

    Few subjects are as compelling-or as endlessly variable-as love and marriage. The Bible is filled with references to husbands and wives, from the story of Adam and Eve to advice in the New Testament, each open to interpretation. In The Meaning of Marriage, Timothy Keller, pastor of New York's Redeemer Presbyterian Church and bestselling author of The Reason for God, uses the scriptures as his guide to show readers what God's call to marriage is, and why this is such a powerful call.

    Adam Shields says: "Now my most recommended book on marriage"
    "Must have"

    Where does The Meaning of Marriage rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    For a nice comprehensive overview of a Christian marriage this is the best!!! I loved it and learned a ton! Listen to it often!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very informational, but based mostly off of scriptures.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    My most important connection is to God... then my spouse.
