The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God


Based on the acclaimed sermon series by New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller, The Meaning of Marriage shows Christians, skeptics, singles, longtime married couples, and those about to be engaged, the vision of what Biblical marriage should be. Timothy, with insights from his wife Kathy, blow away the modern cultural assumptions that everyone has a soul mate, that romance is the most important part of marriage, that marriage only means “for now, not forever” and that starting over after a divorce is the best solution. These are all false conclusions. Instead, they will show you how marriage can be a glorious relationship and something that honors God.
