Overview

This book is intended for purchase alongside Timothy Keller's original book, The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God.

Is marriage more difficult than you thought? Are you seeking to understand the secrets to a happy and successful marriage?

The Meaning of Marriage ...in 30 minutes is the essential guide to understanding how to increase the success and happiness of a Christian marriage as outlined in Timothy Keller's best-selling book, The Meaning of Marriage. Presenting the wisdom of Timothy and Kathy Keller, husband and wife of thirty-seven years, The Meaning of Marriage ...in 30 minutes offers:

• Practical application for how to overcome everyday obstacles and create realistic expectations within a marriage

• Insight into the different roles men and women have in a Christian marriage

• Personal stories about marriage and the importance of faith in everything from sex to raising children to everyday chores

• A synopsis of The Meaning of Marriage, definitions of key terms, and both positive and negative critical reception of the book

• An overview of why modern culture's idea of a soul mate is wrong and the importance of speaking your partner's love language

In The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God, best-selling author Timothy Keller uses studies and statistics to upend commonly held views about marriage. He and his wife, Kathy Keller, collaborate to bring insight to such subjects as the secret of marriage, the transformative power of truth and love, sexuality, and gender roles in a Christian marriage.
Although modern culture is rife with distorted views of marriage, The Meaning of Marriage posits that when marriage is entered into with realistic expectations, it is a powerful gift and the most unique and glorious way to experience God's love on Earth.

    The Meaning of Marriage¿in 30 Minutes is a short review of Timot

    The Meaning of Marriage…in 30 Minutes is a short review of Timothy Keller’s book, The Meaning of Marriage.  It delves into the meaning of marriage, and for those of Christian values, is a way to show that “mutual sacrifice leads to mutual fulfillment.” Yet, this review is for everyone, married couples and singles alike, Christians and non-Christians, and states that, “to fully know and love another is rewarding and wonderful.”  This synopsis is a thought-provoking version of the longer text and the reader can learn from the valuable tips and personal stories that the Keller relates.

    This Garamond Press edition is packed full of helpful advice whether you are married, in a committed relationship or single. Based on the book by Timothy and Kathy Keller who have been married for 37 years, it deals with how to have a successful relationship, drawing from their personal experiences in their relationship, their experience in ministering to their congregation in New York City, and from the Bible. They preach that marriage is designed to bring people closer to God and is a reflection of the saving love of Jesus. The 30 Minute edition is full of helpful background information like critical reception and a glossary of terms. I highly recommend it for readers thinking about buying the original book or just looking for some quick advice.

    This book really goes above and beyond what it promises. Not only does the review cover the main points of The Meaning of Marriage quite thoroughly, but it also provides a scholastic and theological background for everything presented in the book. I found that I learned a lot about religion as well as marriage…and in only 30 minutes of reading. The review, and I’m sure the main book too, really leaves you up-lifted and feeling positively towards marriage, both the ups and the downs. I really feel prepared, and hungry for more literature on the subject!
