The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God | [Timothy Keller]

The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God

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.

Publisher's Summary

Based on his most popular sermon series, New York Times best-selling author Timothy Keller delivers an extraordinarily insightful look at the keys to happiness in marriage.

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. He talks in frank terms about the difficulties that couples have and how they can best work them out while keeping their faith in God intact.

The Meaning of Marriage showcases Keller's vast understanding of the Bible and how it can not only be relevant to relationships today but also form the foundation of a modern, healthy, loving, and long- lasting marriage.

    Story
    "Possibly the best book on the topic of Marriage!"

    I have listened to this book 2 times now as it so clearly captures the essence of marriage and debunks the myths too. If I had to choose one book on the topic of marriage, this would be it. I will be giving a copy to each of my kids once they get to that stage in their lives.

    Story
    "Excellent and insightful"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Meaning of Marriage to be better than the print version?

    I don't know that it is better, but certainly not worse.


    What did you learn from The Meaning of Marriage that you would use in your daily life?

    This book is full of insight into human relationships. Even though it emphasizes marriage, it give practical and helpful perspectives on how to have successful relationships in all categories. I certainly recommend this book to anyone in a dating or marriage relationship. We can all stand to be more loving and selfless - and this book gives us hope for even the most challenging of relationship situations.

    Very informational, but based mostly off of scriptures.

    Story
    "Excellent book on SO many levels!"
    What did you love best about The Meaning of Marriage?

    I just liked that Keller, from the beginning was not ashamed about the Christian nature of the book. After that, he continued to make me think on so many levels. It reached parts of my brain that I had kind of closed off due to bad experiences. This is a must read, if you're single or married!

    "Another top tome by Timothy Keller - love it!"

    Lots of good advice on marriages and relationships in general. Clear signposts for both believers and non-believers as to how to have a successful relationship - so contrary to Hollywood's versions....the way to have a TRUE happy ending!

    Story
    "KELLER DOES IT AGAIN"

    I great book. It helped me understand some of the deeper intricacies of marriage. I am thankful for Dr. Keller's ministry. His wife KAthy's chapter was also quite good.

    Dr. Keller narrates a couple of other audio books I have of his. I was hoping he would have done this one too. The narrators do a fine job, but when you are expecting one voice and you hear another it's a little odd.

    Story
    "long and drawn out"
    Would you try another book from Timothy Keller and/or Lloyd James and Marguerite Gavin ?

    I wouldn't get another one from Mr Keller. His writing style is very dry and and often repetitive.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The 5 love languages


    What didn’t you like about Lloyd James and Marguerite Gavin ’s performance?

    the performance was okay, the material needed work.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    i was reading this as a group with my small group, and i dreaded reading each chapter.
