Publisher Description

Most of what the Bible has to say about marriage does not come flagged up under a heading of “marriage”. It’s not just the famous “marriage passages” that shape a gospel-centered marriage, but the whole Bible-story of God’s good creation, humanity’s wicked rebellion and God’s gracious redemption.

To understand why marriages struggle—as they all do—we need to understand the nature of our sin. To make marriages work, we need to understand how to apply the truth about God and His salvation.

This study guide on Christian marriage focuses on how the Gospel shapes the practical realities of everyday life. Author Tim Chester lifts the lid on many of the common pressure points that modern couples face, and shows how a proper understanding of the Gospel can shape a response.

"Tim Chester advises us in clear, captivating terms what happens when the cross is lifted high in Christian marriage. His advice is uberbiblical and intensely practical. Many couples (especially those who read it together) will find this book to be a life-giving "page turner." Highly recommended."
- R. Kent Hughes, Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church in Wheaton

"Tim Chester doesn't let us think just theoretically about marriage; his focus is relentlessly practical. He is not afraid to raise issues that couples in all seasons of marriage will recognize as challenging and crucial. This book will help Christian spouses ask real-life questions about God's gospel purposes in marriage, pointing them to search for answers in God's Word."
- Kathleen B. Nielson (Ph.D. Vanderbilt University), Author of the Living Word Bible Studies Series

"There are a lot of great marriage resources out there, but if you can only read one, I think this is the very best one you could read. All the right theology, priorities, and practice and still short, simple, and clear."
