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.

    "Best book I have read this year!"

    This book has not only refined my own views of marriage to conform to the biblical paradigm, but also radically transformed the way that I view ordinary relationships. The emphasis on love being primarily an action, a giving of oneself to serve another, is a message I have taken to heart, and has motivated me to be a far better servant to my family and friends.

    "Informative, Revealing, God's true Word"

    I loved it. I listened to the entire book practically straight through. It convicted me and convinced me to turn from some ways that I have held on to. I thank God for using you and your wife to share your experiences with me. God is ALL knowing! Praise His Holy name, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

    Story
    "Encouraging, Convicting, and Molding"

    My Fiancé and I just got engaged after a year long dating/courtship/friendship and we prayed for God to teach us what it meant to be married and everything in this book simply affirmed everything we learned and continue to learn everyday! Highly recommend. What I love about Timothy Keller and his wife is their blunt truths in today's dating culture and view of Love. I would say it's not THE marriage book but definitely one to add to many.
