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.

It was truly a joy to read and I enjoyed every second of the time that I read it. I got to underline so much new liberating info that I can use for my own marriage of 3 years. Amazing book
This book really blessed me in that it wasn't another "do these things and your marriage will be fixed" but rather, look at marriage in light of God and his intention for it, and therefore by blessed by it!
Loved this book. Some real paradigm-shifting thoughts in here based on scripture. Keller takes the Bible seriously and it is refreshing.
I started listening to this book when I started dating seriously for the first time, it has made all the difference. There are loads of insights that are mind breakingand will really make you question how you love your significant other.
At this day and age, with lots of failed marriages and worldly views swirling around, I find this book very refreshing in that I was able to understand what a godly marriage is and the hard work that must be put into it. Thank you Tim and Kathy for sharing your real life experiences. You are both great examples (something that I've been lacking in mt Christian walk)and I'm grateful to learn from you.
I would recommend this book to any single thinking about marriage. It's a great place to start.
Great educational and practical book for men and women to become the great person they were designed to be, while drawing closer to God and his/her partner. Great practical principles to apply everyday and form into habits.
Tim Keller's understand and dissection of Scripture to illuminate truths on a certain subject (in this case, marriage), is amazing. This book would be great for singles, new couples and those who have been married for years. Exceptional.
