This is the inspiring and convicting account of three eighteenth-century Christian leaders (John Wesley, George Whitefield & Jonathan Edwards), all of whom were passionate about glorifying God by serving Him in their generation. They left an enduring and fruitful legacy through their labours, and they were also married. How they balanced (or did not balance) their passion for ministry with being married is the subject of this book.
This book tells more than just the story of three couples it gives us contemporary lessons too, offering Biblical guidelines and counsel from modern day Christian leaders. Many couples today struggle with how God views the relationship between family and ministry. This book gleans insights from these examples and gives biblical guidelines and counsel from some modern day Christian leaders too. What is the legacy you are leaving in your marriage and ministry? Do you want the answers to these questions:
Which comes first? Family or public ministry? What happens if a wife senses God's leading in a different direction to her husband? What are the Biblical responsibilities of a husband and father? A wife's response to difficulties in ministry? How should a godly man treat women other than his wife?
Its research is thorough; its historiography is careful; it's thesis is compelling; and, when taken to heart, its practical implications can be life-changing. In fact, Good Christians, Good Husbands? is the only reading for which I've actually had students' wives thank me for assigning it to their husbands.
I thank God that Doreen Moore wrote this book. Her astounding research on the marriages of some of my greatest heroes of the faith caused me to deeply reflect on the kind of legacy that I'll leave in my marriage. Every pastor should read this.
Driven by a confluence of four motivations, Doreen Moore has produced a study of marriage that is helpful and charming. She is a good historian. I remember this from excellent work that she did in the history program at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Her desire for accurate helpful history gives energy to the historical investigation of the three highly pertinent examples of how evangelical 'calling' impacts to the marriage relationship. She is a concerned theologian. Marriage as a part of the divine order and a subject of divine revelation has an important part in a comprehensive display of God's purpose in the world. She has been careful to give it a theological arrangement. She is a wife. She understands the pressures brought to bear on a marriage by intense ministry goals and demands. Developing a deep sense of the stewardship of marriage is important to her and helps as her argument unfolds. She is a mother. The mysterious union achieved in a family through the begetting of children and rearing them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord is both a personal experience and a theological truth for her. Christian Focus should be congratulated for the pursuit of this manuscript by Doreen and each reader will receive rewards in personal development far in excess of the time invested in reading.
Doreen Moore has done more than write a typical book on marriage. She has seen the impact of life itself upon real people who had real needs and real struggles. The result is a wonderful blend of biography and helpful insight into how God works in our marriages for his kingdom's advance through weak and unworthy servants
Resourced by thorough research into the marriages of Wesley, Whitefield and Edwards, this is a truly wise book on the problem of combining ministry and marriage to the glory of God and the good of all concerned.
Outstanding analysis of the tensions between marriage and ministry and how the two need not be competitors. Very well worth the reading.
