Marriage At Its Best
Given one how-to, you can solve one problem. Equipped with one principle, you can respond to a whole range of problems. This book brings you ten biblical principles, plus a generous sprinkling of practical suggestions throughout, to help you and your mate to make yours a marriage at its best.
There is a tremendous difference, however, between an acceptable marriage in the eyes of the world and the great marriage God wants for His children. Yet it takes more than the uniting of two Christians to achieve God’s ideal marriage. It requires the mating of two growing Christians who resolutely refuse to settle for anything less than God’s best.
Don’t think, though, that we have overlooked God’s concern for the Christian married to a nonChristian mate. Chapter Nine, presenting The Principle of Submission as Strategy, deals with this situation and applies equally well to those marriages involving carnal Christians.
Regardless of where you stand right now in your marriage, if both of you are willing to master and be mastered by the biblical principles for Christian marriage as given here, you will have the delightful experience of discovering what it means to be one flesh.
