The author Paul Tripp has many excellent diagnostic questions throughout the booklet which is very helpful for self-reflection, serious heart check and self-confrontation of one’s heart and motive. For instance in the beginning of the booklet Tripp asked “If you had to write down your dream, would start with, ‘If only…” and then he writes “and end with, ‘THEN I could be happy?’” This right off the bat helps us to start think about identifying what one’s idols are concerning what marriage is about.
In the first section of the book titled “Miracles and Signs” at first I wasn’t sure of where Tripp was going with his use of John 6 but then it came together with his point that there is a danger of pursuing Christ for what one feel they need for life rather than out of love for Christ. This is true for the topic of marriage; Tripp ask the readers if their goal is to attain “earthly bread” or “spiritual bread” of finding one’s satisfaction in Christ. The second section of the booklet titled “What is Your Dream?” asks convicting questions but also uses 1 Peter 1:3-9 to re-evaluate marriage difficulties and crushed expectations. The booklet’s recurring question is “What do I really hunger for?” but asked in different ways. I like that. It goes to the heart of things and I appreciate that the booklet also contrasts the negative consequences of doing marriage in a way that tries to find satisfaction from marriage that it wasn’t intended to fulfill versus finding first one’s satisfaction in Christ and then having that outflow into marriage. I also enjoyed the last section of the booklet on “When Dreams Crumble” that goes down to the solution found in His Word.
Again I recommend this booklet and the truth contain within it speaks to people in various situation in life from those looking forward to marriage and those within difficult marriage. Get this booklet today!
