Overview

Marriage must be on your mind. Otherwise, why would you be reading this back cover? Perhaps you're engaged, or a newlywed, or a marriage pro-regardless-God's Word contains all the information you need about how to have a godly and successful marriage.

Do you know that every single book in the Bible has something to say to us today about marriage? Most of us know the familiar passages like 1 Corinthians 7 and Ephesians 5. But in every book? Yes, instructions for a godly marriage abound from cover to cover. And why does God put such great emphasis on marriage? Because He uses the metaphor of marriage to illustrate His boundless love for the children of Israel in the Old Testament. This intense love moves into the New Testament personified in the heavenly bridegroom's unconditional love for His bride, the church.

From the moment God created the institution of marriage in Genesis 2:24 to the ultimate consummation in Revelation 19:7, we sense His exceedingly abundant love and concern for marriage.

Since marriage originated with God and was ordained by Him as a good thing for mankind, it is imperative that we listen to His words more than anyone else's. "Marriage in Every Book of the Bible" is excellent for personal study or can be used in a classroom or group setting.
