Couples around the world yearn for the joy and security found only in lasting, loving marriages. In his travels, Zacharias (Walking from East to West) has heard men and women in many cultures express their dreams of lasting love. In response, he has divulged a treasure trove in the biblical account of the betrothal and marriage of Isaac and Rebekah, whose love story forms the framework of this fascinating book. In its pages you find the secrets to the kind of courtship and growing married relationship that offer true happiness. This book reveals several vital principles of a godly marriage such as striving for purity, preparing the heart and mind for a healthy marriage, learning the value of prayer, and practicing kindness in your relationship. Whether you are seriously dating, contemplating marriage, or committed to making your marriage strong, the insightful, Bible-based counsel this book provides will offer you strength and wisdom as you move from romance to lasting love.
In the twenty-fourth chapter of Genesis a beautiful young woman offers assistance to a weary traveler and his camels, and out of that simple action, a marriage results-a marriage that offers profound lessons to couples today. Bible scholar and renowned speaker Ravi Zacharias draws five points critical to the long-lasting success of every marriage from the biblical story of the marriage of Isaac and Rebekah.
"Real love folds together both the emotions and the will," writes Zacharias. "Without the emotions, marriage is a drudgery; without the will, it is a mockery." Building upon that foundational truth, Zacharias goes on to explain the principles of seeking the counsel of others when finding a mate, cherishing your partner, remaining pure, becoming a man or woman of prayer, and, finally, risking everything in a relationship in order to experience God's ideal for love.
Couples everywhere, from those about to be married, to those who have been married for decades, will draw strength and wisdom for the journey of marriage as they learn from Ravi what it means to move from romance to lasting love.
