A beautiful book that explores the spiritual meaning of marriage - ideal as an engagement or wedding gift - from New York Times bestselling authors Tim and Kathy Keller
There are few events as significant and life-altering as birth, marriage, and death. These are the moments in which we experience our greatest happiness and our deepest grief. And so it is profoundly important to understand these events and their religious and spiritual significance in the course of our lives.
In On Marriage, Timothy Keller and his wife, Kathy, take us on a journey into the Christian meaning of marriage. With wisdom, joy and compassion, the Kellers teach us to understand marriage through the lessons embedded within the Bible.
The perfect gift for anyone thinking about marriage, On Marriage is a short, powerful book that gives us the tools to understand its meaning within God's vision of life.
'A Christian intellectual who takes on the likes of Nietzsche, Marx, and Freud.' The Wall Street Journal
Timothy and Kathy Keller grew up at opposite ends of Pennsylvania, but met in the middle through Kathy's sister, who was studying at Bucknell University along with Tim. They dimly heard of each other's doings as leaders of their respective Christian fellowship groups, but it wasn't until they both attended Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary that they grew to be friends, then soul mates; they got married at the beginning of their final semester. Tim's first church was West Hopewell Presbyterian Church, in Virginia, where their three sons were born. After nine years in Hopewell, a degree at Westminster Theological Seminary and a stint as associate professor of preaching there, the Kellers moved to Manhattan in 1989 to start Redeemer Presbyterian Church.
