Within the last generation, marriage and our attitudes toward it have gone through some extraordinary changes. What was once true about relationships between women and men no longer seems to be true. Which raises an important question: What do Christians believe about marriage today?^^To answer this question, Douglas Brouwer explores what the Bible says about marriage. While it is clear that the Bible says far less about marriage than we sometimes think it does, Brouwer shows that the scriptures say enough about marrriage to find a firm place to stand in our modern relationships. Gleaning insights from some occasionally surprising places, he crafts in this book a fresh, up-to-date understanding of what marriage is from a truly Christian point of view. ^^In addition to offering a contemporary theology of marriage, Brouwer addresses such perennially difficult subjects as power within a relationship, the role of love, the importance of spiritual compatibility, what divorce means, and what the Bible says about being single. Brouwer ends by drawing on more than twenty years of experience as a husband and church pastor to offer "10 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me about Marriage."^^Easy to read and packed with real-life stories, this book will be helpful to individuals, couples, and small groups as they reflect on marriage in the context of the Christian faith.^
