One of the books we encourage our clients to read is Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas. I love the sub-title of the book as well: “What if God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy?” It’s a striking question that really is worth our time to ponder.
In the book, he relates many different aspects of marriage and how each ties to an aspect of our relationship with God. Here are just a few of some of the chapter subjects:
- How Marriage Teaches Us to Love
- How Marriage Exposes Our Sin
- How Marriage Teaches Us to Forgive
- How Marriage Can Make Us More Aware of God’s Presence
The below video by Gary Thomas answers the question: “How does marriage grow us closer in our walk with God?”
