Sacred Marriage Book Review:

In this popular bestselling book (with more than 500,000 copies sold), Gary Thomas uncovers how your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God and each other. Happy is good. But holy is better. Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person. It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God better, trust him more fully, and love him more deeply. What if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy . . . but holy? Sacred Marriage doesn't just offer techniques to make a marriage happier. It does contain practical tools, but what married Christians most need is help in becoming holier husbands and wives. Sacred Marriage offers that help with insights from Scripture, church history, time tested wisdom from Christian classics, and examples from today's marriages. Sacred Marriage reveals how marriage trains us to love God and others well, how it exposes sin and makes us more aware of God's presence, how good marriages foster good prayer, how married sex feeds the spiritual life, and more. The revised edition of Sacred Marriage takes into account the ways men's and women's roles have expanded since the book was first written. It has been streamlined to be a faster read without losing the depth that so many readers have valued. Sacred Marriage uncovers the mystery of God’s overarching purpose. This book may very well alter profoundly the contours of your marriage. It will most certainly change you. Because whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God, and to a spiritual integrity that, like salt, seasons the world around you with the savor of Christ. Also available: Sacred Marriage gift edition, small group video study and study guide, Spanish edition, and more.

The Sacred Search Book Review:

In the revised edition of his hit book The Sacred Search, author Gary Thomas helps single people of all ages make wise marital choices, in large part by rethinking what basis those choices should be made on. Readers are encouraged to think beyond finding their “soul mate,” an idea that has its roots in the philosophy of Plato, and instead adopt a more biblical search for a “sole mate”— someone who will walk with them on their spiritual journey. Thomas asks, What if we focused on why to get married more than on who to marry? What if being “in love” isn’t a good enough reason to get married? And most of all, what if God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy?

Sacred Marriages Book Review:

This book represents a new direction in the study of religion and marriage by using a postmodern theoretical framework focusing on gendered discourse and culture, to examine the meaning of sacred marriage within social contexts. Drawing upon data from in-depth interviews of couples in long-term, sacred marriages living in the American Midwest, together with an analysis of Christian marriage advice manuals, Sacred Marriages explores how couples use religious and nonreligious discourses and cultures to give their marriages meaning, and how those sacred meanings are used in their daily lives and the spaces that they embody. The study shows how religious and secular beliefs are combined to formulate cultural strategies for approaching the sacralization of marriage, and how religious and nonreligious discourses and cultures are ordered, depending on circumstances and social contexts. This often results in other relationships being subordinated in favour of the sacred bond believed to exist between husband and wife. The book argues that sacred marriage is a malleable concept, as people bend religious culture to form new and altered sacred marriages during emotional extremes. A thoughtful examination of long-term Christian marriages, this volume will appeal to scholars of religion and sociology with interests in marriage and the family.

Sacred Parenting Book Review:

Parenting is a school for spiritual formation, says author Gary Thomas, and our children are our teachers. The journey of caring for, rearing, training, and loving our children profoundly alters us forever…even when the journey is sometimes a rough one. Sacred Parenting is unlike any other parenting book on the market. This is not a “how-to” book that teaches readers the ways to discipline their kids or help them achieve their full potential. Instead of a discussion about how parents change their children, Sacred Parenting turns the tables and demonstrates how God uses children to change their parents. Stepping beyond the overly-tilled soil of method books, parents can learn a whole new side of parenting. They’ll be encouraged by stories that tell how other parents handled the challenges and difficulties of being a parent—and how their children transformed their relationship with God. The lessons the author writes about are timeless. But in this edition, Thomas adds in some additional insights and stories that he’s learned and lived over the past fifteen years of his own parenting. Gary has found that the lessons have remained much the same but there are new applications for the readers in this generation who are just now coming to his book.

With No Strings Attached Book Review:

Marriage for many women is simply miserable. And if that's not bad enough, what makes this even worse is that oftentimes it is we men who inject the misery into the marriage (like injecting our favorite marinade into the Thanksgiving turkey). We judge our wives, criticize them, gripe, complain, and fail to appreciate them. Is this behavior helpful? Is it effective? Is it Christ-like? No (and no wonder why the divorce rate among professing Christians is not much different from those who do not follow Jesus)! To tell you the truth, God's plan for the way you treat your wife looks very different.Throughout With No Strings Attached: 28 Days of Blessing Your Wife, Dr. Steven Bell details twenty-eight unique ways for you to love your wife unconditionally. Each approach to blessing your wife is simple, yet immensely challenging (and well worth your time). The days of the “status quo” husband are quickly coming to an end, and our wives need more from us than we've been giving them. Grounded in scripture and a number of other helpful resources, With No Strings Attached: 28 Days of Blessing Your Wife provides a clear blueprint of how to take your marriage from miserable to magnificent.

He Left Me now God Is My Husband Book Review:

He Left Me...Now God is my Husband is the story of the author's personal journey through the trials of her divorce. A divorce can leave you battling many emotional ups and downs. We feel the wounds of hurt, rejection, abandonment, hopelessness, and more. But God promises in Deuteronomy 10:18 that He will be with us and take care of us; the forsaken. When your world has been rocked through betrayal, He offers blessings and healing to those who will trust Him. Once you allow God to reign over this area of your marriage, you will find that God truly loves you and that His promises are true.
