In this six-session small group Bible study, Sacred Marriage, writer and speaker Gary Thomas invites you to see how God can use marriage as a discipline and a motivation reflect more of the character of Jesus.
Your marriage is much more than a union between you and your spouse. It is a spiritual discipline ideally suited to help you know God more fully and intimately. Sacred Marriage shifts the focus from marital enrichment to spiritual enrichment in ways that can help you love your mate more. Whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God.
Everything about your marriagefrom the history you and your spouse create, to the love you share, to the forgiveness you both offer and seek by turnis filled with the capacity to help you grow in Christ's character.
In addition to life-changing insights, youll find a wealth of discussion questions in the Participants Guide that will spark meaningful conversation in your group, between you and your spouse, or to simply ponder by yourself. Youll also find self-assessments, activities and highlights all created to help you engage deeply and prayerfully with the content of this study. This pack contains one Sacred Marriage DVD and one Participants Guide.

Pastor Bob5 Stars Out Of 5Sacred MarriageJanuary 27, 2015Pastor BobI have previewed all the lessons on the DVD and have looked over the student study guide. I like Gary Thomas' approach to how we view marriage. I am very much looking forward to beginning this with a small group of parents in there 30s this coming Sunday. I really appreciate what Gary says in the sessions
MrsP5 Stars Out Of 5ExcellentNovember 28, 2014MrsPQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Wonderful study for couples of all stages. Our group consisted of couples married as little as three years to as many as 40+ and we all agreed it would have been excellent as a premarital study as well. Definitely a worthwhile investment. After completing the 6 weeks our group agreed we would return to this again periodically as it is full of great insight and Biblical truths that will never lose value.
