Product Description

What do you want out of your marriage? Contrary to what television and bridal magazines tell us, marriage is about much more than personal happiness. Marriage is about spiritual growth. God wants to use your marriage to shape your character and carry out his purposes in the world through you as a couple. The book of Genesis provides a matrix for understanding the intimate mystery of marriage in light of three commands-leave, weave and cleave. We first create a new family unit, separate from our family of origin; then we weave a life togher through good communication and healthy conflict, and we draw together.

    Read their "Intimate Allies" book and followed it up with this one. They have grasped the bigger picture of marriage and have made it edible for anyone to digest. I highly recommend this book for anyone who sees marriage as a mystery from God and for anyone who scratches their head and wonders what God was thinking when He instituted marriage. Great information. Usable information. Hot from His Throne and ready to apply to our lives.
