Publisher's Description

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 marriage—from the history you and your spouse create, to the love you share, to the forgiveness you both offer and seek by turn—is filled with the capacity to help you grow in Christ's character.

In addition to life-changing insights, you’ll find a wealth of discussion questions in this Participant Guide that will spark meaningful conversation in your group, between you and your spouse, or to simply ponder by yourself. You’ll also find self-assessments, activities and highlights all created to help you engage deeply and prayerfully with the content of this study. Designed for use with the Sacred Marriage DVD (sold separately).

Sessions include:
1. God’s Purpose for Marriage
2. The Refining Power of Marriage
3. The God-Centered Spouse
4. Sacred History
5. Sexual Saints
6. Marriage: The Love Laboratory

    Our small women's Bible study group read the Sacred Marriage book. We enjoyed it and learned so much we decided to complete the DVD study with our husbands. What an excellent study! The participant's guide allows each couple to work through the main points of the DVD lesson as well as provide exceptional discussion questions, things certain to get a couple not only thinking but acting as well. Would be an excellent premarital workshop piece, but definitely has plenty to offer newlywed through golden anniversary stage relationships as well!

    We are using this along with the DVD in our small group couples Bible study. So far it's been great. Having the participants guide along with the DVD works well when there isn't a lot of time to prepare.

    I was adomat in my stance that I would not read a marriage book, despite my wife's requests to do so. When God tore away the hardness of my heart I was drawn to this book. I realized I needed to make my marriage a priority in my life and could not do so unless I made God the priority in my marriage. The book is filled with great insights into God's design for our marriage and how He wants to use our marriage to teach us more about the relationship He has wants to have with us. Reading throug this book with my wife is taking our marriage from good to God centered and growing. I highly recommend it for all couples.

    This workbook has prompted us to have to put some thought into our decision making with eachother, our outlook at our marriage, and how we should move forward keeping God as the focus of our own lives. This was well worth the investment!
