Marriage is one of the most satisfying and yet one of the most difficult relationships on earth. God places a great importance on this relationship and gives very clear principles on how it is to be lived out in the daily life using the Word of God. In Twelve Biblical Steps, these Biblical principles will be carefully analyzed and clearly explained so that every Christian couple can grasp their significance and begin to carry them out in their marriages. Some of these Biblical principles that are covered in this book are as follows: Follow the instructions Building a spiritual network Becoming friends not just roommates Avoiding the triple threats Fight to unite not divide This book is not intended to cover all the challenges that married couples face. It is not an in-depth analysis of relationship issues. It is not expected to answer all of the questions that couples may have as they learn to build a new home and a new family. However, it is a book that seeks to dig into God's Word and apply His truth to the marriage relationship. The hope of this author is that the chapters that follow in this book will enable the husband and the wife to develop a marriage that is a success and so become examples for a new generation to follow.
