Format: Paperback
I thought this little book was out of print. It is a pleasure to see it back because the books that have been written of late do not come close to the careful reasoning from the biblical texts that the author marshals throughout his readable presentation. Not wordy, innovative in approach, yet deeply theological in a meaningful and practical way. So many of the newer works on marriage and family are heavy laden with modern thinking and therapeutic wrangling. Where many have compromised with the "way it is and what everyone else is doing" approach, Bromiley sticks close to the biblical admonitions and instructions. His discussions about how our relationships should learn from the Trinity, and the "directions" of the Holy Spirit harbor the potential for married couples to transform their entire understanding of how they live their lives.

This is a book that can be given to anyone getting married, someone who is even thinking about ever getting married, and those who have been married for any length of time. Pastors and counselors would do well to read this short volume carefully and develop a foundational approach to helping people to understand and enjoy the marital bond.

Basic is good.

Respected pastor-theologian, John Piper, referred to this book. A very high view of marriage is put forth and defended. Worthwhile reading.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author reviews references to marriage and marital role models from the beginning to the end of the Bible. As such, I find it a succinct resource for finding passages related to marriage with good annotation regarding the biblical context. The book does not try to address the variety of issues surrounding marriage. It doesn't attempt to give a full description of how different theological perspectives perceive the implications of different biblical passages. For example, I read a short reference that stated the book relates marriage to the Trinity. The book categorizes marital references according to their relation to Father, Son and Holy Spirit, but it does not give an in-depth discourse on how a Trinitarian theological perspective would interpret marriage or marital relationships as expressing the image of God through humanity.
