Overview
Considers that God's primary intent for marriage is not to promote happiness as much as it is to promote holiness, citing within marriage the potiential for enabling each partner to discover and reveal Christ's character. Reprint.

Publishers Description
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. Scores of books have been written that offer guidance for building the marriage of your dreams. But what if God's primary intent for your marriage isn't to make you happy . . . but holy? And what if your relationship isn't as much about you and your spouse as it is about you and God? Everything about your marriage--everything--is filled with prophetic potential, with the capacity for discovering and revealing Christ's character. The respect you accord your partner; the forgiveness you humbly seek and graciously extend; the ecstasy, awe, and sheer fun of lovemaking; the history you and your spouse build with one another--in these and other facets of your marriage, 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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent Book!  Feb 6, 2007
Thomas' thesis is captivating and his style of writing makes for an enjoyable read. The book is biblical, practical, and important. I have made it a required reading for premarital counseling. Every Christian couple should own a copy and pastors should read it.
 
Must read for every marriage  Jan 11, 2007
As a student of the Focus on the Family Institute, "Sacred Marriage" was foundational reading material for our Marriage course. It does a wonderful job putting the realities and the purpose of marriage into perspective. My husband and I read this book together when were engaged, and it was quite helpful in preparing us. We've been married nearly a year and a half now, and have carried many of the lessons from "Sacred Marriage" with us. It is also the one book I almost always give out to friends who are about to marry.
 
Beat expectations  Jan 6, 2007
My wife and I read two books when we went through counseling with our pastor. I particularly found them almost useless. After we got married, I especially wanted some more practical guidance during the tremendous process of change that takes place immediately after marriage. My view of many things concerning marriage was skewed, badly. I searched for a book because it was the most convenient form of advice I'd take. I bought this book and have been most rewarded for doing so. Thomas is evangelical (a scary idea to me) but he cites many theologians from across church history to help convey his ideas and message. His anecdotes are quite absorbing yet short enough to appreciate how they relate to my own situation. My situation was mostly in terms of ideas, i.e., the ideas I had about marriage. Thomas has done much to correct them and put marriage in proper light. He doesn't try to be your friend and sound odd doing so, but he wants his readers to know how marriage is of God and used by God. As he says, marriage is not about making us happy but making us holy. Though at first this sounded way too evangelical for me, Thomas is not pietistic in his approach to marriage. He's quite realistic and grounded. The questions were very helpful as my wife and I used them as part of our reading of the book. We're not even finished with the book but we're already reaping its benefits. If you're looking for a book that will actually help you in your marriage (I'm speaking as a newly wed and this may pertain more to this demographic), then investing in this book will meet your expectations.
 
THE BOOK FOR BELIEVERS ON MARRIAGE  Jan 3, 2007
As a friend told me right after I got engaged: "Read this book and you will live." I give this book to every one of my newly engaged or married friends as an attempt to remind them that God created marriage for holiness, not happiness.
 
puts it all in perspective  Nov 30, 2006
This book, recommended by our pastor, puts the whole meaning of the marriage into perspective. Anytime I would become discouraged with my marriage or hit a tough time I would open the book and it helped me immensely. I purchase the book for anyone I know having a rough go at marriage, and I recommend the book for anyone having a tough time or involved in a wonderful marriage, it's just a wonderful book. It helped me turn the focus of trying to fix on my own what I thought was wrong, to trying to make myself a more Godly wife and do what God wants me to do.
