    I listened to this on audio several times. I love the partnering of Noel and John Piper on this. The book reads like a love poem that is definitely Spirit filled. Great expansion on marriage scripture and that of Christ's love for HIS church. I bought several books and gave them as wedding gifts and birthday gifts to singles. I have read many books on marriage and God's plan for it but this is by far the best and beautifully biblical.

    In response to other reviews on this, this book is not a counseling book, John Piper is a pastor not a marriage counselor, so no there is no discussion on abuse and other issues that would be worked out with a Christian Counselor. I would recommend books by Tim Clinton or other prominent biblical counselors for that (AACC). This read is based on Truth so yes it is a convicting read. But if you go into it with an open heart desiring to know God's plan for marriage you will enjoy it but its always on perspective and heart.

    The Persistent Widow
    John Piper and his marriage views turn a blind eye to the reality of domestic abuse present within the church. As much as it seems he would like to pretend otherwise,there are wicked, abusive, mentally disturbed people who find a comfortable environment within the church, largely because of teachers like him. Piper's insistence that someone should be bound by vows that their spouse unrepentently and continuously breaks is unreasonable. Certianly, he requires that couples take vows in the marriage ceremonies at his church. I ask WHY? If one party to the covenant unrepentantly breaks the vows, the other is still bound to them. He doesn't allow divorce for adultery, either. In a violent marriage,a person is subjected to violence by the very one who vowed to love and protect them. How is this a picture of Christ's love for his church? It is a perversion and grieves God. I would like to ask readers, how would you feel if this abuse was to happen to one of your loved ones? Shouldn't we have the same empathy for all of Christ's people that we have for our own flesh and blood?

    His books are widely distributed in the church and used to furthur guilt and oppress Christ's people. A theology with no empathy towards the suffering of others cannot be from God, no matter how fancy the cover looks.

    I would recommend David Instone Brewer's Book, Divorce and Remarriage in the Church, Barbara Roberts book, Not Under Bondage and Jeff Crippen's book, A Cry For Justice:How the Evil of Domestic Abuse Hides in Your Church. If you are not aware of what domestic violence is, try Lundy Bancroft's book,Why Does He Do That. A quick internet search will turn up many results, so the people of God have no excuse to not address this issue. Neither does John Piper.
