Summary

God is the divine matchmaker, and this is his plan for you.

Marriage is God's sacred creation, a beautiful gift for his children. But too often we fail to leave the choice or the timing to him. In this revised and expanded edition of his best-selling book, well-known Bible teacher Derek Prince and his wife, Ruth, reveal God's true plan for you and your future spouse. In addition to sharing their own real-life love story, Derek lays out seven biblical steps to finding your mate. He will also help you answer tough questions, such as:

  • How can I know if it is God's will for me to marry?
  • How can I prepare myself for marriage?
  • How can I find the mate God has appointed for me?
  • What is God's plan for remarriage?

Full of inspiring testimonies from people who found their perfect matches by following these principles, God Is a Matchmaker also offers special counsel and material for parents, pastors, counselors, teachers, and youth ministers involved with those preparing for this exciting time of life. When you discover God's pattern for marriage, you will experience his perfect gift: a match truly made in heaven.

A fantastic insight into Christian matchmaking

Derek & Ruth Prince never fails to deliver biblical reference and personal testimony. His teachings are clear and concise and the reverence of the word of God through Jesus Christ and prevelant and a blessing to hear.

Doing marriage God's Way

I read this book before I married over 30 years ago and would highly recommend it to any new couple. It is one of the best pre-marriage books available for believers.

A wonderful refreshing teaching on marriage.

Often books on marriage have the same or similar teachings. This man of God shares his experiences regarding his marriages through his personal relationship with Jesus. There is a depth here and a maturity in this book that I have been wanting to find. It was wonderful to me. Marriage is not for your personal selfish gain. Successful marriage requires serving and sacrifice that yield great blessing.

God is a Matchmaker

I grew up in a polygamy environment. I never saw myself being married or cared about marriages even though I am always happy to see couples marry. At about age 32 about September 2018 I started having desires for a husband. In 2016 a pastor anointed my married finger, to my surprise I wondered where this was coming from because I was not dating or had anyone in mind to whom I would marry. I have to say looking back that God already has things in place for all of us.In December of 2018 my sister gave me a ring to put on my married finger saying the Lord told her to give it to me. She said pray and exercise your faith in God. My church now has a fellowship group referred to as Life Group, Life Group features a group of christian persons coming together to fellowship once per week about a particular topic. I signed up and the theme for our group is God is a Matchmaker. I do believe that this is Gods plan for me. This book has opened up my mind so much, it is biblical and the things outlined are drawn from bible scriptures. I am wowed when I see how God has our life laid out for us all we need to do is walk accordingly.

A Fantastic Read!

This book truly helped to open my eyes and see the idea of marriage in a whole new way. I very much appreciate the way in which Derek and Ruth collaborated to put this book together. There was so much Godly wisdom imparted to me as I listened to each chapter and I could deeply relate to the experiences shared. Thank you for including this in your collection.

Hope for the yet to be married

Review of God is a Match Maker

If you're like me, married once and having a series of relationships that crashed and burned, but you love and trust God, this book provides hope by illustrating an effective, biblical path to marriage based on trusting God with who your future spouse will be.
Using personal anecdotes along with testimonies, the Prince's walk us through the steps to letting go and letting God be the ultimate matchmaker with a solid scriptural basis. Personally, I am deeply grateful to finally have a plan of action for personal development while learning to wait patiently for the spouse God is preparing for me. After all, if I don't learn to trust God now it could cause tremendous pain to those I care about because of a lack of dependence on God. I'm sure this book will save most single Christians years of pain and frustration in trying to control something that God will gladly handle if we only let Him. Since Derek points out that God gives His best to those who leave the choice to Him, what do we have to lose?
