Gary Thomas is a writer in residence at Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, and an adjunct faculty member teaching on spiritual formation at Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon. He is the author of over a dozen books, including Sacred Marriage, Sacred Pathways, Pure Pleasure, Sacred Parenting, and the Gold Medallion Award-winning Authentic Faith.
Scores of books have been written that offer guidance for building the marriage of your dreams. But what if Gods primary intent for your marriage isnt to make you happy . . . but holy? And what if your relationship isnt as much about you and your spouse as it is about you and God?
Everything about your marriage--everything--is filled with prophetic potential, with the capacity for discovering and revealing Christs character. The respect you accord your partner; the forgiveness you humbly seek and graciously extend; the ecstasy, awe, and sheer fun of lovemaking; the history you and your spouse build with one another--in these and other facets of your marriage, Sacred Marriage uncovers the mystery of Gods overarching purpose.
This book may very well alter profoundly the contours of your marriage. It will most certainly change you. Because whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God, and to a spiritual integrity that, like salt, seasons the world around you with the savor of Christ.

OdoguKL, MalaysiaAge: 25-34Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Lovely BookNovember 13, 2013OdoguKL, MalaysiaAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4As the name implies so is the content within this material.
A good material for anyone who wants his/her marriage to stand the test of storms in marriage need to go through the pages of this book, though one must know the Word of God, the Bible that we have and know what the Bible really say about marriage.
Q: What about divorce? I appreciate the comments on how this book may strengthen marriages and how people should read this before they marry, but what about those who are contemplating divorce? Will this book help those who are struggling with extremely challenging marriages? I'm looking for something to help a marriage support group at our church. Thank you for any insight.
