"Lord, here am I. Change him.""God, I'm trying. She started it."Common claims but they're so far from Trinitarian life. We invoke Christ at the wedding then seem to default to an alien theology afterward.In this simple and practical book, Doug Wilson offers a richer and more comprehensive theology of marriage than in his prior works. Here he grounds marriage in the life of the Trinity and in the life of the church. Marriage is intended to be a glorious picture of the gospel, and marriages grounded elsewhere regularly create a small hell on earth. Don't miss the riches of marriage.

Marriage is now acknowledged as an institution of key relevance to development policy, practice, and research. The vast majority of women and men get married at least once, and in many places life outside marriage is almost impossible for either sex to comtemplate. Yet marriage experienced by men is very different from marriage for women. This is because marriage is, in all male-dominated societies, an institution imbues with inequality, in which husbands and fathers rule the roost. Many cultures and legal systems still permit the control and punishment of unruly wives, through violence rangin

At a time when the institution of marriage is failing in our culture, Christians are making a renewed commitment to discover the richness of biblical marriages that are rooted in the divine life of the Trinity. In this collection of wedding sermons, Peter Leithart illuminates the subject from many perspectives, forming a loose, down-to-earth "systematic theology of marriage" that connects marriage with the doctrines of the Trinity, creation, salvation, sacraments, church, eschatology, and more. The result is a series of enlightening and invigorating exhortations for Christian couples at any st

Unlike the vast majority of "marriage books", "Sex, God, and Marriage" digs deeper than the usual "issues" and goes to the root: our relationship with God, and the defining power of that relationship over all others in our lives. Arnold addresses the deep pain resulting from the cycle of broken relationships and the misuse of sexual intimacy. His words offer healing, a new beginning, and a sense of hope to those who have experienced discouragement or failure. Includes chapters on sex, alternatives to dating, parenthood, singleness, homosexuality, abortion, divorce and remarriage. The book also

The chasm between the biblical vision of marriage and the common human conception is—and has always been—gargantuan. Reflecting on over forty years of matrimony, John Piper exalts the biblical meaning of marriage over its emotion, exhorting couples to keep their covenant as a display of Christ’s covenant-keeping love for the church. He aims to lift the church’s low view of marriage to something infinitely greater, namely, a vision of Jesus’s unswerving allegiance to and affection for his bride. This Momentary Marriage unpacks the biblical vision, its unexpected co

IMBRA mandated a study of the actżs impact on the visa process for non-citizen spouses and fiancé(e)s. This report addresses the extent to which the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS); the Dept. of State (DoS); and the Dept. of Justice have implemented IMBRA, and
