I like the book's simplicity and clarity. Especially, when it comes to marital expectation it describes real life experience and practical solutions.

Leithart is clearly a gifted thinker and theologian. His thoughts are deep and his explanations of the guidance given to a young couple are meaningful. He shares important information and theology generously.

As a pastor, spring and summers of weekly weddings invite the opportunity to constantly keep our eyes open for new images and metaphors for love, marriage and a group of bible passages that become very familiar connected with the theme. I downloaded this book in the hope that it would give a little mid-wedding season inspiration to some of the bible texts I'm seeing the third, fourth and fifth time already this summer. A few new metaphors and images are always welcome. I was disappointed.

As I said before, Leithart's thoughts, instruction and theology are shared in a clear and cohesive way. But, I was expecting something different. Leithart writes in a much more theology driven and much less the image rich style which would have provided a resource that I would use in the future.

A Great Mystery: Fourteen Wedding Sermons

This is a great book for ministers to ponder. It will provide some ideas for better sermon prep as it relates to weddings and marriage.
