Happy is good. Holy is better. Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person. It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God better, trust him more fully, and love him more deeply. What if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy . . . but holy? Sacred Marriage doesn't just offer techniques to make a marriage happier. It does contain practical tools, but what married Christians most need is help in becoming holier husbands and wives. Sacred Marriage offers that help with insights from Scripture, church history, time tested wisdom from Christian classics, and examples from today's marriages. Sacred Marriage reveals how marriage trains us to love God and others well, how it exposes sin and makes us more aware of God's presence, how good marriages foster good prayer, how married sex feeds the spiritual life, and more. The revised edition of Sacred Marriage takes into account the ways men's and women's roles have expanded since the book was first written. It has been streamlined to be a faster read without losing the depth that so many readers have valued. Sacred Marriage uncovers the mystery of God’s overarching purpose. This book may very well alter profoundly the contours of your marriage. It will most certainly change you. Because whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God, and to a spiritual integrity that, like salt, seasons the world around you with the savor of Christ.

Die Ehe ist mehr als ein heiliger Bund mit einem anderen Menschen, davon ist Gary Thomas überzeugt. Sie ist eine geistliche Disziplin und soll uns dabei helfen, Gott besser kennenzulernen, ihm mehr zu vertrauen und ihn inniger zu lieben. Es gibt unzählige Bücher darüber, wie Sie zur Ehe Ihrer Träume gelangen können. Aber was, wenn Gott uns durch die Ehe nicht unbedingt glücklich machen, sondern näher zu sich ziehen will? Und was, wenn es in Ihrer Beziehung weniger um Sie und Ihren Partner geht, sondern vielmehr um Sie und Gott? Jedes Detail unserer Ehe - der gegenseitige Respekt, die gewährte Vergebung oder die Begeisterung, Ehrfurcht und der bloße Spaß an der Liebe - hat prophetisches Potenzial und kann dazu dienen, das Wesen Jesu zu entdecken und zu offenbaren.

Tired of all the advice about marriage? Especially when you try it and it doesn't work? You believed the experts when they guaranteed to improve your communication, bring ecstasy to your love life, or promised to make you and your spouse soulmates? Maybe you read it in a popular book, saw it on a talk show, or heard it from a well-known speaker. At first it was so convincing and for a while it seemed to work. But then reality hit.In Monday Marriage, Gerald W. and L. Marlene Kaufman offer another way to find real contentment in marriage. They suggest that you take a rain check on the fantasies. They know that all couples have stresses that come from work, children, finances, and many distractions. The Kaufmans help you find ways to manage your life. They especially want couples to be realistic about each other when the mystery and intense romance disappears.This book is about discovering the wonderful things that occur in the daily routines of marriage. Things that many couples miss because they chase impossible dreams and fantasies. For example, the quiet of an evening together after the kids are in bed. Sometimes without a word being said! Maybe the closeness comes from an unsolicited back rub. Mainly they are close because nothing else is allowed to come between them. That is when they discover a richly ordinary marriage. What the Kaufmans call "Monday Marriage".
