Book Overview

Incredibly rich with wisdom and insight that will leave the reader, whether single or married, feeling uplifted. --The Washington Times

Based on the acclaimed sermon series by New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller, this book shows everyone--Christians, skeptics, singles, longtime married couples, and those about to be engaged--the vision of what marriage should be according to the Bible.

Modern culture would have you believe that everyone has a soul mate; that romance is the most important part of a successful marriage; that your spouse is there to help you realize your potential; that marriage does not mean forever, but merely for now; and that starting over after a divorce is the best solution to seemingly intractable marriage issues. But these modern-day assumptions are wrong. Timothy Keller, with insights from Kathy, his wife of thirty-seven years, shows marriage to be a glorious relationship that is also misunderstood and mysterious. The Meaning of Marriage offers instruction on how to have a successful marriage, and is essential reading for anyone who wants to know God and love more deeply in this life.

Look out for Timothy Keller's latest book, God's Wisdom for Navigating Life, available from Viking in Fall 2017.

   Best marriage book I've ever read
I have been doing premarital counseling for over a decade. This is the first book I have written that contains all of the major topics. It covers topics I've never seen before. It brings together topics from some of the best books. I've been telling everyone about this book. I'm going to use it for premarital counseling. I'm hoping to get every married person and single person to read this book. I think it's highly recommended. This is one of my favorite books.

   Highly recommend
I read this book with my boyfriend. We are re-reading it after we married. Keller brings up a lot of points and perspectives that stir deep conversations. It is a good book to read if you are about to get married, thinking of getting married, or already married. Give yourself a new perspective on marriage and why God created it. Keller points out the statistics of marriage failures and the view of marriage in our current society.

   Single best resource on this topic
In the post-Christian world, this book is so important because it is easy to read. It's great for single people and married people. This is the best resource on the biblical view of marriage and how it relates to dating, commitment within marriage, and the beauty of and love for your spouse. This book is more than I could recommend. !

   It's Okay
After seeing the positive reviews, my husband and I decided to give this book a try. Both of us found it boring and dry. My husband is a very religious person and he couldn't get through more than a few chapters before giving in. After he gave up, I only read one or two chapters on my own. The book had outdated ideals of marriage, and we disagreed with it a lot. It's on to the next one!

   It's Okay
After seeing the positive reviews, my husband and I decided to give this one a try. We both found it boring. My husband is a very religious person and he couldn't get through more than a couple chapters before he gave in. After he gave up, I only read one or two more chapters myself. This book had outdated ideals of marriage and we disagreed with it a lot. On to the next one.

   "When words are many ..."
Tim Keller is an important voice in the church today, but I am not a big fan of this book. Why? A classically trained musician makes sure every note is played to the best of their ability. The notes are precise and accurate. Tim Keller didn't seem to take the same care in making sure he was consistent throughout the book. He is sloppy while this sounds critical. The reader doesn't have the opportunity to ask him questions, so this matters. It is complete, but not solid enough in print. He is a great man of God and he has good things in store for him.
