[Series: What I Read In Seminary #5] The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God

It has been a joy to study the biblical counseling world’s material on marriage and to consider the topic from a biblical worldview. It has not only been a blessing for me as I’ve read, but I expect to be challenged and encouraged along the way in my own marriage. I have already felt convicted at times, but the material is fantastic.

A relatively famous work comes from Timothy Keller and Kathy Keller, The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God , Reprint edition. (New York, NY: Penguin Books, 2016), which functions as a great apologetic work to the secular/humanist/Western/individualist/Kant/Enlightenment/Post-modern worldviews of marriage. Keller and his wife seek to explain the glories of the Christian view of marriage to your average nonbeliever or new Christian. It is a great introduction filled with helpful advice all meant for the reader to come away appreciating God’s design for marriage as it was in Genesis 1–2. To say the least, it is a great conversation starter with plenty of food to munch on.
