Overview

Visionary Marriage provides a message to encourage all couples to understand God's purpose for marriage. Insightful marriage advice is given and meant to draw a couple closer to God and to each other. After years of counseling engaged and married couples, the Rienow's realized that most Christian couples did not have a biblical mission and purpose for their family. The couples had learned some things about communication, sexuality, and conflict resolution. But they didn't know WHY God had brought them together! Visionary Marriage will reveal that God does have a plan and a purpose for marriage and family in the Bible. The focus is on the big-picture purpose of marriage, and the goal of being successful once understanding the purpose. Rob and Amy Rienow give encouragement and insight into life-changing action that will impact your marriage no matter where you are in that stage of life. Couples will be inspired to accept the Bible as sufficient to address all issues of life. Topics covered in the book include: the power of purpose, the mission of spiritual transformation, and encouraging faith in each other. Each chapter ends with questions to be used as food for thought or group discussion. The foundational mission of Visionary Marriage is to know God's purpose for your family and build your life around it.

Read an Excerpt

A moment ago you turned back the clock to consider the question, "Why did you get married?" Here is another question, "Why are you still married?" The way we answer these questions determines, in large part, the success of our marriages. These "why" questions are purpose questions. They are mission questions. Many, if not most, Christian couples get married without a clear Christian purpose for their family. We were definately in this category when we were married in 1994. We were ignorant of what a Bible-driven, Christ-exalting, Gospel-expanding marriage was all about. We weren't stupid, just ignorant. We did not know, and despite graduate degrees from Christian colleges, we had not been taught all that God had said in the Scriptures about His purposes and plans for marriage and family. We were oblivious to the fact that many of our views about marriage, family, and children had been derived from secular culture instead of God's Word. We had studied and considered what the Bible said about the church, evangelism, worship, missions, money, morality, salvation, the end times, heaven and hell. But we had little to no theological understanding of God's purposes for the family. Amazing! God created the family as the fundamental institution upon which all human life and civilization rest, and yet we never gave it serious theological thought. It is our prayer that through the Scriptures we will explore in this book that God will give you a passionate, compelling, unifying mission and purpose for your family!
