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.

Helpful for both single and married people

Very informative book. Dives into many facets of marriage like its purpose, its nature, gender roles, sex, singleness and marriage. Very well written and thoughtful, as well as well researched. This book has given me great direction moving forward as a single person in 21st century western culture.

I'm going to give this book away at every wedding

Tim and Kathy Keller have such a Winsome quality as authors. Tim rights and such a way that is lucid and thought-provoking. he helped me to think through my own views on marriage and how they may be skewed and what the appropriate biblical View ought to be. as a single person I found this book very helpful, and I know many married people who also have found it very useful.

Best book on marriage I've ever read!

this book honestly explores a biblical perspective on marriage in the most practical/helpful way! many marriage books use a lot of time discussing exercises and cliches. this book shows you why the clock works rather than telling you how to put it together.
