What if God united you for your spiritual growth rather than your personal happiness?

Another book on “the ideal marriage”? Not so sure ! The author throws a wrench into the pond of our thirst for personal fulfillment. His thesis: consider marriage the best life discipline.

It directs your couple – young or experienced – towards the gift of self: as Jesus gave his life for his bride, the Church.

It encourages you, in turmoil or not, to persevere in honoring God and setting an example for future generations. Many marriages would succeed if the spouses strengthened their vision: that of an alliance with the holy God, intended to manifest his glory.

This book, enriched with practical examples, questions your place and your responsibility in the couple and in your relationship with God.

Gary Thomas has already written numerous books on marriage. He teaches at the Portland seminary (USA). Married and father of three children, Gary is also an athlete who has already run eight marathons to date.
