About "I, Isaac, Take Thee, Rebekah"
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

Customer Reviews For "I, Isaac, Take Thee, Rebekah"Write Your Own Review
I have consumed a large variety of material in relation to singleness and the road to marriage (including all the mumbo jumbo of "God's will" in between). This book turned out to be one of the best I have ever read. The roadmap was clear and while some of the suggestions were quite backward by modern standards, Ravi gave biblical examples, cultural context and championed courtship. He spared nothing when delving into the idea of true romantic love - commitment and choice, as opposed to the shallow and fleeting 'love' of Hollywood and Disney fame.
