I am thrilled to recommend one of my favorite marriage books around—a book we will be reading in our Gospel Gripped Fellowship: “When Sinners Say I Do: Discovering the Power of the Gospel in Your Marriage” by Dave Harvey (Kindle for $1.99 | Paperback | Study Guide ).
Here’s the description from Amazon:
Marriage is the union of two people who arrive at the altar toting some surprisingly large luggage. Often it gets opened right there on the honeymoon, sometimes it waits for the week after. The Bible calls it sin and understanding its influence can make all the difference for a man and woman who are building a life together. When Sinners Say “I Do” is about encountering the life-transforming power of the gospel in the unpredictable journey of marriage.
Dave’s writing style embraces the reader as he speaks honestly, and sometimes humorously, about sin and the power of the gospel to overcome it. He opens the delightful truth of God s word and encourages the reader to see more clearly the glorious picture of what God does when sinners say “I do.”
My wife and I went through the book and study guide on our 10th anniversary getaway to St. Augustine and we benefited from it greatly. Two sinners now occupying their lives together—it will, as Harvey rightly notes, “take our theology out for a test drive.” I can’t wait to tackle this for the month of February.
I hope you can get your copy. And join the Gospel Gripped Fellowship while you’re at it.
