Publisher's Description

Renowned pastor of New York’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church and author of the forthcoming Every Good Endeavor, Timothy Keller with his wife of 36 years, delivers The Meaning of Marriage, an extraordinarily insightful look at the keys to happiness in marriage that will inspire Christians, skeptics, singles, long-time married couples, and those about to be engaged.

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.

Just as this book is based on his popular sermon series, so will his Encounters with Jesus series, the first of which, The Skeptical Student comes out in December.

Author Bio

It now draws over five thousand weekly attendees who meet in three Manhattan locations. Redeemer has since spawned a movement of churches across America and throughout major world cities. Many pastors model their churches on Redeemer and Tim's thoughtful style of preaching. Dr. Keller lives in New York City with his wife and sons.

    Time Keller's book is a very thorough look at marriage. It's not just a "this is what you do to have a better marriage" book, although if you apply what you learn your marriage will certainly improve. It looks at marriage from a biblical perspective - highly recommended!

    This book provides an incredibly accurate picture of today's popular views of marriage. On the one hand, people despair and think it is impossible to commit and stay married for life and on the other hand, people glorify marriage unrealistically, seeing it as a passion-fest, for the purpose of personal gratification and achievement of goals. Keller meets both of these extremes with a biblical view of marriage that upholds its divine purpose without glorifying it as the ultimate happiness. An excellent read for singles, dating, and married individuals.

    This book has shaped my thinking and relationships and identified areas where I was holding onto a culturally shaped view of marriage over God's view of marriage.

    Why is marriage so important? Why does it matter? What does the Bible teach about the most intimate of all human relationships? This is not your typical "how to make your marriage better" book. What Timothy and Kathy Keller address, is why marriage, as God designed it, is so special. They confront the questions being asked today when marriage is degraded, devalued or ridiculed in our culture. They address why marriage must be legal (a piece of paper does matter), the value of the marriage covenant, and how this effects every day life. This is an outstanding and encouraging book for singles, newly married or seasoned couples.
