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.

I really love to hear this book in fact the meaning of marriage help to understand more the way Tim and Katy Keller wrote the book together as one flesh!
I enjoyed the layout of the rather foundational truthful look at marriage! Great read! Highly recommend to anyone trying to get clarity on marriage.
Gets 5 stars bc this is a great contemporary approach to godly marriage. It will challenge already established marriages looking for growth, and it will help greatly newly married couples looking to build on a solid marriage foundation.
Nobody should get married without first reading this book. It is the definitive volume on Christian marriage, outside of the Bible. The writing is excellent and the audio performance is equally excellent.
Whether you are engaged, newly married or in a marriage that has stood the test of time, this is a tremendous read. It should be mandatory reading for any couple in marriage counseling.
this book offers a deep and rich biblical perspective as well as practical advice and wisdom on marriage. the special friendship and cooperation that takes place between these two children of God is amazing and complicated and sticky and beautiful. well done Kellers.
Very well-narrated. Tim Keller really helps put marriage into perspective from God's point of view, separating the current modern culture POV and assumptions or even the traditional Christian POV from that of God.
This is the best book on marriage from a biblical perspective written in our generation. If every person who was going to get married or who is already married would read this book and take its teachings to heart there would be a great increase in good marriages and a great decrease in painful divorces, with an overall result of a more healthy society in every area of life.
