There has never been a marriage book like THE MEANING OF
Based on the acclaimed sermon series by New York Times
bestselling author Timothy Keller, this book shows
everyone-Christians, skeptics, singles, long-time married
couples, and those about to be engaged-the vision of what
marriage should be according to the Bible.
Modern culture would make you believe that everyone has a
soul-mate; that romance is the most important part of a
successful marriage; that your spouse is there to help you
realize your potential; that marriage does not mean forever, but
merely for now; that starting over after a divorce is the best
solution to seemingly intractable marriage issues. All those
modern-day assumptions are, in a word, wrong.
Using the Bible as his guide, coupled with insightful
commentary from his wife of thirty-six years, Kathy, Timothy
Keller shows that God created marriage to bring us closer to him
and to bring us more joy in our lives. It is a glorious
relationship that is also the most misunderstood and mysterious.
With a clear-eyed understanding of the Bible, and meaningful
instruction on how to have a successful marriage, The Meaning of
Marriage is essential reading for anyone who wants to know God
and love more deeply in this life.
