Publisher's Summary

God is the divine matchmaker, and this is his plan for you.

Marriage is God's sacred creation, a beautiful gift for his children. But too often we fail to leave the choice or the timing to him. In this revised and expanded edition of his best-selling book, well-known Bible teacher Derek Prince and his wife, Ruth, reveal God's true plan for you and your future spouse. In addition to sharing their own real-life love story, Derek lays out seven biblical steps to finding your mate. He will also help you answer tough questions, such as:

  • How can I know if it is God's will for me to marry?
  • How can I prepare myself for marriage?
  • How can I find the mate God has appointed for me?
  • What is God's plan for remarriage?

Full of inspiring testimonies from people who found their perfect matches by following these principles, God Is a Matchmaker also offers special counsel and material for parents, pastors, counselors, teachers, and youth ministers involved with those preparing for this exciting time of life. When you discover God's pattern for marriage, you will experience his perfect gift: a match truly made in heaven.

Doing marriage God's Way

I read this book before I married over 30 years ago and would highly recommend it to any new couple. It is one of the best pre-marriage books available for believers.

A wonderful refreshing teaching on marriage.

Often books on marriage have the same or similar teachings. This man of God shares his experiences regarding his marriages through his personal relationship with Jesus. There is a depth here and a maturity in this book that I have been wanting to find. It was wonderful to me. Marriage is not for your personal selfish gain. Successful marriage requires serving and sacrifice that yield great blessing.

God is a Matchmaker

I grew up in a polygamy environment. I never saw myself being married or cared about marriages even though I am always happy to see couples marry. At about age 32 about September 2018 I started having desires for a husband. In 2016 a pastor anointed my married finger, to my surprise I wondered where this was coming from because I was not dating or had anyone in mind to whom I would marry. I have to say looking back that God already has things in place for all of us.In December of 2018 my sister gave me a ring to put on my married finger saying the Lord told her to give it to me. She said pray and exercise your faith in God. My church now has a fellowship group referred to as Life Group, Life Group features a group of christian persons coming together to fellowship once per week about a particular topic. I signed up and the theme for our group is God is a Matchmaker. I do believe that this is Gods plan for me. This book has opened up my mind so much, it is biblical and the things outlined are drawn from bible scriptures. I am wowed when I see how God has our life laid out for us all we need to do is walk accordingly.

Not happy with this title.

I couldn’t really appreciate the book, the narrator was a really boring reader. The narrator almost sounds like a computer generated voice. I think if another person read this book I may have enjoyed the message of this book and the author’s message.

Oh I wish I could've read this book earlier.

I am a hopeful romantic but failure with a capital F describes my relationships. As a divorced woman and a Believer, I still believe in the visions of Holy Matrimony not unequally yoked failure. After listening and realizing that God is the Matchmaker, I know why I failed...I took the reins instead asking and trusting God to do it. Now in repentance and restoration, I rest in faith for my man of God or a fulfilling single life in ministry. I highly recommend this book to young singles and old. Many pains would've been unknown if I had this teaching in my youth. Blessed be

What a great and insightful book!

I definitely loved this book and will be reading it again which is something I rarely do. There is so much practical and biblical information in here it's almost invaluable. I highly recommend this book for any Christian regardless of marital status.

Deep insights

Listening to this audio book went beyond words to deeply resonate in my spirit. It went from words on paper to instructions on how to enjoy a godly marriage. It felt surreal how spiritual marriage can be; at the same time, I felt encouraged that this institution, which was introduced by God is naturally bound for success if He (God) is fully involved in it. Words are just not enough.

every single person should read this.

very personal and in depth about the topic of marriage, remarriage and having relationship with GOD/communication.

A fantastic insight into Christian matchmaking

Derek & Ruth Prince never fails to deliver biblical reference and personal testimony. His teachings are clear and concise and the reverence of the word of God through Jesus Christ and prevelant and a blessing to hear.
