Item Description...
A JOYFUL, HOPE-FILLED MARRIAGE "Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth, a lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love" (Proverbs 5:18-19). Is your marriage blessed, joyful, delightful, intoxicating? That's how God wants it to be. God has provided everything husbands and wives need to experience this kind of intimacy and bring Him glory at the same time. This book shows how a passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ is the fountain that sustains a God-glorifying, enjoyable and durable marriage. "Looking for fresh insights on the joy and glory of marriage as God intended? Then this book is for you. Pastor Darby brings excellent biblical scholarship and thoughtful, practical, wholesome ideas for improving your marriage relationship. None of that syrupy stuff with no real substance, but wise counsel from God's Word challenging couples to experience God's best as He designed it to be." Stephen Davis, Executive Director, State Convention of Baptists in Indiana Darby Livingston is the founding pastor and a counselor at Come As You Are Fellowship in Union City, Ohio. He is also co-founder of Joyful Hope Ministries, a cell-church planting ministry. Darby is happily married to Amanda and they have five young children.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful marriage resource!  Apr 5, 2008
Darby's book is very challenging, very convicting. I'm so glad he wrote this book! It has moved me to seek Christ for fullfillment so that my marriage may bring glory to God!
Christian Hedonism applied to marriage  May 18, 2007
This book is a lot more than a book on marriage. Similar to the broad spectrum of life dealt with by Paul Tripp's "War of Words" (which deals with a lot more than communications), "Pursuit" deals with the larger issue of world-view. Not in a technical philosophical sense, but in a global, practical sense. Livingston writes around an orientation of being in love with and happy with God, as a governing principle for all of life. A good marriage, therefore, is not an end in itself but merely a means to the end of glorifying God by enjoying Him and displaying His glory.
Livingston applies the principles of Christian Hedonism to marriage. His careful consideration of the happiness of God, his thoughts on the nature of love, and his gospel-centric view of the Christian life combine to make this an excellent and thoroughly biblical book about marriage. In a twist that is unusual for a book on marriage, the author also does a good job of warning the reader of the dangers of turning a desire for a good marriage into an idolatrous pursuit.
Livingston borrows conceptually from John Piper, the writers associated with CCEF, and others in his approach, building on them and moving their arguments forward. However, the book is much more than a rehash of Piper, but develops new ways in which a thoroughly biblical Christian Hedonism transforms the relationship of a husband and wife.
"Pursuit" is a little long, but well worth reading and recommending to others. The writing style is informal: you could imagine the author seated across from you, talking about his topic. There is a warmness and pastoral quality that rises out of Livingston's style. The chapters on money and intimacy were a little weak; only because what was said probably should have been said in about half the space. The last chapter on Missional Marriages was outstanding.
