Publisher's Summary

Happy is good. Holy is better.

Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person. It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God better, trust him more fully, and love him more deeply. What if God's primary intent for your marriage isn't to make you happy...but holy?

Sacred Marriage doesn't just offer techniques to make a marriage happier. It does contain practical tools, but what married Christians most need is help in becoming holier husbands and wives. Sacred Marriage offers that help with insights from Scripture, church history, time-tested wisdom from Christian classics, and examples from today's marriages.

Sacred Marriage reveals how marriage trains us to love God and others well, how it exposes sin and makes us more aware of God's presence, how good marriages foster good prayer, how married sex feeds the spiritual life, and more.

The revised edition of Sacred Marriage takes into account the ways men's and women's roles have expanded since the book was first written. It has been streamlined to be a faster listen without losing the depth that so many listeners have valued.

Sacred Marriage uncovers the mystery of God's overarching purpose. This book may very well alter profoundly the contours of your marriage. It will most certainly change you. Because whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God and to a spiritual integrity that, like salt, seasons the world around you with the savor of Christ.

    "Just what we need"

    This is just the book we need in our marriage right now. Such a great eye opener to how our marriage is meant to serve God and bring us closer to him. The author has such a great cadence to his voice and is truly enjoyable to listen to.

    "A permanent part of my library"

    I've read many of the comments prior to purchasing this audiobook and chose to purchase it. I listened 4 time already and while going through it myself, I found was the information was timeless, relevant and applicable in very practical terms in order to navigate the journey of marriage.

    "Not just for the married couples"

    It is important for us to begin to look at marriage from God's perspective. Marriage is to make us holy. I believe that there need to be more groups for singles so that the preparation and maturing can begin long before the engagement and subsequent vows being exchanged. There would be fewer marriages with fantasy expectations and but fewer divorces for "irreconcilable differences".

    "Good"
    Any additional comments?

    Audiobook review: It is nice when authors narrate their own work, and this author does a very nice job. The central idea here, listed on the front of the book, cannot be overstated. The author clearly explains and illustrates the idea in the first half of the book, and once that is done the book trails off into "typical marriage book" themes (in my opinion). Totally worth the read/listen for the first half, though.
