In this six-session, small group study DVD, 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.
This DVD features six 10-15 minute live teaching vignettes from Gary Thomas. Designed for use with the Sacred Marriage Participant's Guide (sold separately) that features insights, discussion questions, self-assessments, activities and highlights all created to help you engage deeply and prayerfully with the content of this study.

Kevn (a pastor)5 Stars Out Of 5Loved it!August 26, 2014Kevn (a pastor)Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have been in FT ministry for 30 years... marrying people, counseling, etc -- and this material was excellent! We loved the idea that God created marriage for our HOLINESS, not for our HAPPINESS. Very helpful and we will continue to offer Sacred Marriage small groups.

After buying it, my husband and I led our marriage Sunday School class in this study. This is the best study I have ever used. Practical, Bible-focused, useful, thought provoking, and much more. If you can only read one book, read this one - with your spouse. Marriage changing!

Q: Does each individual in a group need to purchase the DVD (for watching before bible study)? Or just the leaders (to watch during bible study)?
Only the leader needs to have a copy of the DVD, as it is intended for use during the group study time.
Q: Is it necessary to purchase the book or is the dvd information complete? Wanting to give to an engaged couple that does not want to "read a book" . Our church does not offer premarital counseling.
Although the DVD does mention the participant's guide at the end of each session. There is a great deal of beneficial information that can be gleaned from watching the video content only.
Q: how long are the sessions and how many sessions are there on the Gary Thomas Marriage DVD?
There are six sessions; each 20-25 minutes in length.
