Summary

How would you describe the spiritual aroma of your home? The source of this aroma is the relationship between husband and wife. Many can fake an attempt at keeping God's standards in some external way. What we cannot fake is the resulting, distinctive aroma of pleasure to God.

Reforming Marriage does what few books on marriage do today: it provides biblical advice. Whether it has to do with respect and love, confession of sin, sexual fidelity, or even the gnarly issues of divorce and remarriage, Douglas Wilson points to the need for obedient hearts on the part of both husbands and wives.

This audiobook is part of the Canon Press series of books on the family, which has helped many people trying to deal with the on-the-ground messes that come with sinners living under the same roof. Godly marriages proceed from obedient hearts, and the greatest desire of an obedient heart is the glory of God.

Sooo Goood!!!

I just listened to it, and I think I’m going to listen to it again. Plus I have now bought the book so that I can go back and look at the pages. I think he might’ve just punched me in the mouth... in a good way of course.

Poor production quality. Excellent content

Half way through chapter two it fades out and begins chapter three. I was not impressed by that. The sound quality is substandard for what I would expect from any self-respecting daily podcast. I am disappointed that this low-budget treatment was given to one of my favorite books of all time. I’ll change my rating to all 5 stars once they upload a version of this audiobook that will sync with my Kindle copy of this book. I was pretty bummed about the quality of the recording of Wilson’s Beowulf translation as well. As a high profile proponent of classical education, I naturally expect excellence, and am shocked at the shoddiness of these two recordings.

As for the content of this book, I could not be more pleased. It has been foundational for my marriage since it was assigned to us in Pre-marriage counseling, and it was a delight to encounter (most of) the same truths that put us on the trajectory we are on. Thank you Douglas Wilson! Please speak to your sound engineer if you don’t fire him after listening to this audiobook.

If you care about your marriage, you owe it to yourself and your spouse to read or listen to this book!
