Happy is good. Holy is better.

Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person. It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God better, trust him more fully, and love him more deeply. What if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy . . . but holy?

Sacred Marriage doesn't just offer techniques to make a marriage happier. It does contain practical tools, but what married Christians most need is help in becoming holier husbands and wives. Sacred Marriage offers that help with insights from Scripture, church history, time tested wisdom from Christian classics, and examples from today's marriages.

Sacred Marriage reveals how marriage trains us to love God and others well, how it exposes sin and makes us more aware of God's presence, how good marriages foster good prayer, how married sex feeds the spiritual life, and more.

The revised edition of Sacred Marriage takes into account the ways men's and women's roles have expanded since the book was first written. It has been streamlined to be a faster read without losing the depth that so many readers have valued.

Sacred Marriage uncovers the mystery of God’s overarching purpose. This book may very well alter profoundly the contours of your marriage. It will most certainly change you. Because whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God, and to a spiritual integrity that, like salt, seasons the world around you with the savor of Christ.

Good book with tons of info that should be helpful to any couple struggling with marriage issues. It would be most helpful if both parties read the book or better yet read it together.

If you are married/marrying and profess to be a Christian- read this book.

This book is excellent because it caused me to look at various marriage issues from a completely different perspective. I grew in understanding and it has helped me approach my marriage differently and to exercise more patience than I was exercising. Although I believe joy can be a fruit that is enjoyed often in a marriage, I totally understand better that the differences that seem so big between us are the source of spiritual growth and maturity.

Good read no matter how long you’ve been married. A good choice for those considering marriage and what it’s really about. The author poses interesting views about the Christian purpose of marriage and how two can work together through marriage to glorify the Lord.

I don’t to marriage books. I don’t do marriage seminars. I don’t do marriage counseling. This book is not as much about focusing on your marriage as it is about centering on the One who seals the bond of your marriage; taking the strain off making the marriage work and instead transforms the process into a journey of delighting in the God who created you and your spouse to love, serve and please Him. Gary Thomas deftly and sensitively walks through some landmine issues with new and refreshing insights. Is your marriage in a class 5 rapids status? This just may be the book for you. Are you sailing along on a calm sea? Make it even better with the ideas contained within the pages of Gary Thomas’ Sacred Marriage.

An encouraging read…I highly recommend.

I’m only a few chapters into this book and already feel that I have learned some key strategies to improve my marriage and also my thought process towards my husband. The author gives practical advice with solid backing from scripture and respected spiritual leaders that walk the talk and have been in all of our shoes.
