Men and women are different from each other, yet not opposites. What do gender differences mean for our personal identity? What do they mean in marriage? Is a married man called to be his wife's leader? What does the apostle Paul really mean when he calls women to submit to their husband? These Bible discussions point the way toward honoring our differences and treating each other as prized equal partners. These studies will help you take small but real steps toward honoring the image of God in each other and living out the goal of marriage. As you explore and respond to Scripture together, you will discover the strength and beauty of your marriage and become ever more intimate companions.

What do gender differences mean for your individual identity? What do they mean in your marriage? Dan B. Allender and Tremper Longman III have together written this inductive Bible study guide to help couples build healthy and happy marriages. Through six study sessions for individuals, couples or groups, they guide you in exploring assumptions about gender roles and differences that may affect your marriage. Intimate Marriage Bible studies bring spouses into deeper communion with God and with each other. In marriage a man and a woman are called to leave their families of origin, to weave their individual lives into a unity and to cleave to each other. How can fallen human beings even begin to contemplate this ideal--God's ideal? These studies will help you take small but real steps toward honoring the image of God in each other and living out God's goal for marriage. As you explore and respond to Scripture together, you will discover strength and beauty in your marriage and become even more intimate companions.
