Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Occult authors don't have a monopoly on Valentine's Day, judging from the pile of winter relationship books from Christian publishers. One useful title is H. Norman Wright's The Complete Book of Christian Wedding Vows: The Importance of How You Say "I Do". In addition to providing practical advice ("Expect something to go wrong at your wedding!" he tells all couples in premarital counseling), Wright offers tips on writing Christ-centered vows and presents sample wedding prayers from several different Christian denominations.

Read an Excerpt

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding

From that day on, you and your groom- or bride-to-be will be sharing the rest of your lives together.

As Christians, you want a ceremony that reflects your commitment to each other, to God, and to marriage itself. You want a wedding that is unique, meaningful, memorable.

The heart of the service (and of this book) is the vows you will make to each other. These will be some of the most important words you will ever say. Spoken before family, friends, and God, they express a lifelong pledge of love and faithfulness.

In my years as a premarital counselor, I've met with countless couples who desired personalized, Christ-honoring vows but wanted help in creating them. That's what this book is all about.

You will find step-by-step advice for adding a unique touch to your vows and indeed, the entire ceremony. For example, the chapter "How to Create Your Vows" directs questions to you and your future spouse that will help you identify possible themes and phrases you would like expressed in your own wedding vows. In the same way, "Vows for Inspiration" and other examples throughout the book can be used as a starting point. If you like parts of a vow, feel free to personalize it and add your own.

Also included is a special chapter for married couples who want to reaffirm their vows, as well as a chapter for writing vows that include others, such as parents or children from a previous marriage.

To personalize other elements of a wedding ceremony, there are meaningful Scripture readings, prayers, quotations, and poems. In addition, I have provided ideas forinvolving your guests so that they are not just passive spectators.

As you read on, keep in mind that it's important to talk with your pastor about your vows and the entire ceremony. Your church or denomination may have a standard order of service and perhaps even acceptable variations. However, by working together and perhaps even sharing this book and its biblical options, personal touches can be added to virtually any ceremony.

Finally, after you have created the perfect vows for your wedding, be sure to record them in the back of this book where they can be reread and relived at each anniversary or special moment in your marriage.
