"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.

    God’s intention for marriage was for it to be a reflection of the relationship between Christ and the church. However, how many Christian marriages are true reflections? In this book, Douglas Wilson delves into the intricacies of the marriage union as set forth in the word of God. Subjects such as headship, submission and forgiveness are explained with sound doctrine, not merely opinion. Wilson states:

    The chief end of marriage is the same as the chief end of man-to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. The chief end of marriage is not to have “your needs met.” The chief end of marriage is not to get your husband “to finally see.” It is not to get your wife to be more responsive. The chief end of marriage is to glorify God and enjoy Him (on His terms) forever.

    There is no illusion given that marriage is an easy task, only the gentle reminder that it is work but it can be accomplished with God’s help. I highly recommend this book to anyone whether newlywed or a veteran of married life who is seeking to find a better theology of marriage. I received this book free to review from Canon Press.
