In Marriage: From Surviving to Thriving, Dr Charles Swindoll examines what God intended for married couples to experience and enjoy.
When you think of marriage, what immediately comes to mind? Do you see it as sacred covenant, a joyous, intimate, and fulfilling relationship for you and your spouse? Or is your marriage part of the majority wallowing in frustration and barely surviving? In a day when half of all marriages fail, we need insight that stands the test of time. In Marriage: From Surviving to Thriving, readers find what God intended for married couples to experience and enjoy. With insight, wisdom, and teaching drawn from the Bible, and anecdotes from his 50+ year marriage to Cynthia, Dr. Swindoll shows readers how to transform their union from a lackluster contract to an intimate and exciting relationship.
The world has changed, and it's going to keep changing.
That's no big revelation, but we cling to the fleeting hope that we can return to the gentler, more stable days gone by . . . especially where our marriages are concerned. But the truth is, we can't, because as the world changes, so do we, and so do our marriages.
Let's face it: marriage and the home have altered drastically through the years. Men afraid to be men. Women ashamed of being women. Children unsure of who's in charge. Blended and not-so-well-blended families. Homes that have become battlegrounds. And all of it so unstable, so temporary.
In the face of these depressing facts, beloved pastor and Bible teacher Chuck Swindoll offers a refreshing dose of hope and practical help for marriage. His sage advice, based on the Bible and his own fifty-year marriage, shows us how to move our marriages from just surviving to actually thriving. And that target can be hit dead-center if we rely on God and His Word as our marriage counselor, our guide, our glue.
