Editorial Reviews

... Theologically informative and instructive and yet devotional in approach, it makes a fine contribution to contemporary Christian reflection on a most important institution.

As a woman engaged to be married for the first time (in my mid-50s), who loves classic Christian writings and devotional literature, I have found this book to be a treasure trove. A sweet and timely source of wisdom as I seek to honor Christ in a new season and station of life.

This inspiring collection of excerpts on marriage with accompanying devotionals will make stimulating reading for engaged and married couples and even singles... Highly recommended!
What a delightful mix of historical wisdom, biblical truth, and real-world application. In these pages you'll hear the early church martyr Ignatius tell you, "Marriage is God's good gift." Keep reading and you'll see how good and glorious of a gift it is.
... This is historical theology at its best. Biblical, practical, wonderfully helpful and really enjoyable.

I do not know of a more interesting and scholarly book to recommend for a marriage-focused devotional... Buy this book, treasure it on your nightstand, and don't forget to pass it to your sons and daughters as their marriage date approaches.

Held in Honor is an easy to read devotional drawing on the wisdom of the past concerning the many issues related to marriage and how scripture speaks to them. This is an enjoyable read and proves that Christians of the past have as much to teach us about marriage as those in the present. This book will help you gain a greater appreciation for voices of the past in regards to the churches teaching on marriage.

If you're looking for something to read on marriage, whether alone as a husband or a wife, as a single person preparing for marriage, or as a couple reading together, I think that this devotion would be a great choice for you. Rather than seeking out modern wisdom on marriage, you're turning back to 2,000 years of church history and gaining wisdom and insight from two millennia of Christian thinkers.

With that historical focus, coupled with the short nature of the devotions (2 pages each), I believe that this will be a great resource to any man or woman, single or married, to gain a better understanding of what a biblical marriage looks like, and what it means for marriage to be "held in honor by all" (Heb. 13:4).

In my eight years of marriage I have found great joy in reading to Shannon Deane before we go to bed each night. I think I just found my favorite book to read to her! We are half way through reading HELD IN HONOR by Dr. Robert Plummer and Matt Haste and we have already been tremendously blessed because of it.

Each chapter is only two pages long which makes it easy reading each night, even when you are tired. You are presented with a short bio from someone in church history along with a quote they have made about marriage. The quotes themselves have been amazing and helpful to see that people have struggled with the same difficulties in marriage for 2,000 years! It actually makes you feel quite sane.

The authors then present you with a devotional follow up that brings clarity to the quote by directing your eyes to the Scriptures. There are challenging questions posed that if asked to your spouse will lead to deep conversations that bring edification and change in your marriage. This book is fun to read!

Good books on marriage are hard to find, but in Held in Honor, Robert Plummer and Matt Haste have taken an expedition through church history to bring back the finest gems of biblical teaching on marriage. Accompanied by biographical sketches and the authors' own commentary, this book will challenge, encourage, convict, and inspire every wife to cherish her marriage and prize her husband.
Plummer and Haste's Held in Honor: Wisdom for Your Marriage from Voices of the Past is a collection of writings on marriage from Christian theologians, pastors, and authors. The work is a delight to read on many levels. Those who value church history will appreciate the profound reflections on marriage from some of the greatest Christian minds of the past. Those who seek to understand Scripture's teaching on marriage will be rewarded and those who wish to be challenged to live with greater devotion toward God and his or her spouse will find many practical insights. The authors present a realistic understanding of marriage, highlighting its joys and sorrows, as well as its triumphs and trials. I highly recommend this book.

I ordered another one to give away to a friend at an upcoming wedding!
