Customer Reviews For "A Christ-Centered Wedding"Write Your Own Review
With so many wonderful books on marriage, it's relieving to also know that there is also a good book for the wedding-day itself. I highly recommend reading this book in the lead-up to your wedding; it continually reinforces the message that all brides and grooms need to hear; your wedding day is ultimately not about you, but the glory of God. It addresses all the central parts of a wedding- ceremony, dress, dealing with parents, reception, decorations, finances, etc- from this framework, which makes it invaluable. A great engagement present if you get the chance!
There are more books available to prepare you for marriage than you would be able to read in a lifetime. However, books devoted to the wedding day itself are few and far between. That alone makes this book an essential addition to your pre-marriage reading list, but let me assure you that the content is well worth it! In a culture where it can feel like a tension between you trying to prepare for marriage to glorify God, and society saying it's all about partying at the wedding, this books helps put the wedding day in it's place, as the most wonderful opportunity to share the gospel with your family and friends and to glorify God throughout the logistics of the day. It strikes a lovely balance between the necessary theology and practical advice, stories and examples, to really help you to pray and consider how your wedding can be as Christ-centered as your marriage. Highly recommended for all those preparing for marriage and their wedding day
This is THE book to read with your future husbandwife as soon as you make the decision to marry. It contains lots of Biblical principles and practical advice to help you make your special day the best start for your marriage that it can be. You will discover how - although your life-long marriage is infinitely more important than your one-day wedding - that day can be one of great witness and worship, thus setting the tone for the life that the two of you are about to start together. I for one am very grateful to Parks and Strode for writing this book, which has helped my fiance and I to plan our upcoming wedding together.
