The Meaning of Marriage | Preblast


Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God

Modern culture would have you believe that everyone has a soul mate; that romance is the most important part of a successful marriage; that your spouse is there to help you realize your potential; that marriage does not mean forever, but merely for now; and that starting over after a divorce is the best solution to seemingly intractable marriage issues. But these modern-day assumptions are wrong. Timothy Keller, with insights from Kathy, his wife of thirty-seven years, shows marriage to be a glorious relationship that is also misunderstood and mysterious. The Meaning of Marriage offers instruction on how to have a successful marriage, and is essential reading for anyone who wants to know God and love more deeply in this life.

Based on the acclaimed sermon series by New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller, this book shows everyone—Christians, skeptics, singles, longtime married couples, and those about to be engaged—the vision of what marriage should be according to the Bible.

Beginning Saturday October 5 we will start reading The Meaning of Marriage by Timothy Keller. We will meet at 6:15 am at Adventure Park. You can get the paperback copy on Amazon for about $8. We should read the introduction by October 5. If you cannot afford the book, please reach out to me (Sparky) and I will get you a copy.

Celery Fields is invited to track with us HIM at Adventure Park. If this topic is relevant and important to you, then please step up and help lead a few guys on Saturday mornings at Celery Fields. If you would rather meet at an alternative time or location, then that is great too! I will help by providing my reading notes and publishing the backblasts. Please let me know if you are interested.

Even if you are single, there will still be plenty to learn about marriage and relationships. I am looking forward to growing stronger spiritually and strengthening our marriages together as brothers in F3 and brothers in Christ!
