Publisher's Description

“Incredibly rich with wisdom and insight that will leave the reader, whether single or married, feeling uplifted.”—The Washington Times

Based on the acclaimed sermon series by New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller, this book shows everyone—Christians, skeptics, singles, longtime married couples, and those about to be engaged—the vision of what marriage should be according to the Bible.

Modern culture would have 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; and that starting over after a divorce is the best solution to seemingly intractable marriage issues. But these modern-day assumptions are wrong. Timothy Keller, with insights from Kathy, his wife of thirty-seven years, shows marriage to be a glorious relationship that is also misunderstood and mysterious. The Meaning of Marriage offers instruction on how to have a successful marriage, and is essential reading for anyone who wants to know God and love more deeply in this life.

Author Bio

Timothy Keller was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. He was first a pastor in Hopewell, Virginia. In 1989 he started Redeemer Presbyterian Church, in New York City, with his wife, Kathy, and their three sons. Today, Redeemer has more than five thousand regular Sunday attendees and has helped to start nearly two hundred new churches around the world. Also the author of Generous Justice, Counterfeit Gods, The Prodigal God, Jesus the King, and The Reason for God, Timothy Keller lives in New York City with his family.

Kathy Keller grew up outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and attended Allegheny College, where she led Christian fellowship groups, before attending Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. She met Timothy Keller while studying there, and they were married at the beginning of their final semester. She received her MA in Theological Studies at Gordon-Conwell in 1975. Kathy and Tim then moved to Virginia, where Tim started at his first church, West Hopewell Presbyterian Church, and their three sons were born. After nine years, Kathy and her family moved to New York City to start the Redeemer Presbyterian Church.

Editorial Reviews

“This is a book Christians need to read.”—The Christian Post

“The rare marriage book I would heartily recommend to any single, no matter his or her age, whether dating, courting, engaged, or disinterested . . . Rich and practical.”—The Gospel Coalition

    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.
