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.

Voice

It would be a great idea to have more than just this one guys voice reading the book. 8 hours is a long time to listen to this man.

Powerful message for millennials

The message of this book is both timely and beyond time. The beauty of the Bible is that it applies at all times and the message here is one of love, grace and truth.

My only dislike would be the female’s voice in one chapter and at the end in the epilogue. Otherwise, it was very well done and a great listen!

I've read a lot of marriage books

I've read a lot of marriage books, but I've never read one like this. Mystery of marriage, love and war, and others have been incredible reads. But the meaning of marriage has now become my number one book to recommend to my married, un-married, and soon-to-be married friends.

Required reading for any marriage

My wife read this on our honeymoon and we talked about it in detail. It’s a gut check, encouraging and helps keep first things first in a marriage.

Very helpful book even after 40 years of marriage

This book is well with me and well read and full of very useful information some of which I would like to have known 40 years ago. It's worth several lessons to get all the meat of it

insightful, practical, meaningful and wonderful!

tim demonstrates how some ideas of love are shallow and what deep love can be hard but worth it. A realistic book on marriage for our times!
