Is it possible to have a great marriage? This books says an unequivocal yes! "Love is still what people long for. It's still the theme of dreams," says best-selling author Dr. Ravi Zacharias.

Couples around the world yearn for the joy and security found only in lasting, loving marriages. In his travels, Ravi has heard men and women in many cultures express their dreams of lasting love. In response, he has discovered a treasure trove in the biblical account of the betrothal and marriage of Isaac and Rebekah, whose love story forms the framework of this fascinating book. In its pages you find the secrets to the kind of courtship and growing marital relationship that offers true happiness.

I, ISAAC, TAKE THEE, REBEKAH reveals several vital principles of a godly marriage such as:

- Understanding the importance of parental blessing

- Striving for purity

- Preparing the heart and mind for a healthy marriage

- Learning the value of prayer

- Practicing kindness in your relationship

Offering wise counsel from true stories and accounts from his own marriage, Dr. Zacharias emphasizes that real love - the kind that makes lasting, satisfying marriage possible - is a blending of the emotions and the will. He says, "Without the emotions, marriage is a drudgery; without the will, it is a mockery."

Whether you are seriously dating, contemplating marriage, or committed to making your marriage strong, the insightful, Bible-based counsel this book provides will offer you strength and wisdom as you move from romance to lasting love.

Bible based counsel this book provides will offer you strength and wisdom as you move from romance to lasting love. "Marriage is at once the most powerful union and the most misunderstood relationship we can experience," confesses renowned speaker and apologist Dr. Ravi Zacharias. And most of us would agree. In this book, Ravi clears up some of the confusion by drawing profound lessons from the biblical story of the marriage of Isaac and Rebekah. "Different cultures view marriage differently," Ravi warns us, "and if we are not careful, we can begin to believe that marriage was society's idea within the framework of each culture. Nothing could be further from the truth. Marriage was God's idea, and he alone has the right to define how it was meant to be. "This book gives you a look into what the Bible says about God's plan for marriage. He has clearly spoken to us in his Word. And sooner or later we all come to realize that only when we shape our marriages God's way do we reap the great benefits." Book jacket.

In the twenty-fourth chapter of Genesis a beautiful young woman offers assistance to a weary traveler and his camels, and out of that simple action, a marriage results--a marriage that offers profound lessons to couples today. Bible scholar and renowned speaker Ravi Zacharias draws five points critical to the long-lasting success of every marriage from the biblical story of the marriage of Isaac and Rebekah.


"Real love folds together both the emotions and the will," writes Zacharias. "Without the emotions, marriage is a drudgery; without the will, it is a mockery." Building upon that foundational truth, Zacharias goes on to explain the principles of seeking the counsel of others when finding a mate, cherishing your partner, remaining pure, becoming a man or woman of prayer, and, finally, risking everything in a relationship in order to experience God's ideal for love.


Couples everywhere, from those about to be married, to those who have been married for decades, will draw strength and wisdom for the journey of marriage as they learn from Ravi what it means to move from romance to lasting love.

PRODUCT DETAIL

Ravi Zacharias

Frederick Anthony Ravi Kumar Zacharias was born into a nominally Christian (Anglican) Indian family in Madras in 1946, and grew up in Delhi. He was an atheist in his youth, but had a conversion experience after reading John 14:19 while recovering from a suicide attempt at age 17. Ravi emigrated with his family to Canada in 1966. He earned his M.Div. degree from Trinity International University, Deerfield, Illinois, in 1972.

Since 1971, when he first ministered to GIs and POWs in Vietnam, Ravi has spoken all over the world in great halls and universities including Harvard, Princeton, and Oxford.

He is listed as a distinguished lecturer with the Staley Foundation and has appeared on CNN and other international broadcasts.

The author of numerous books, he powerfully mixes biblical teaching and Christian apologetics. His weekly radio program, Let My People Think, is broadcast over 1,500 stations worldwide, and his weekday program, Just Thinking, began airing in November 2004. He is president of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries.

Some of his publications include Beyond Opinion: Living the Faith We Defend; The End of Reason; Walking from East to West; The Grand Weaver; Cries of The Heart; Recapture the Wonder: Experiencing God's Amazing Promise of Childlike Joy, and Jesus Among Other Gods: The Absolute Claims of the Christian Message.

Ravi has been married to his wife Margie since 1972, and they have three adult children.
