This is a book Christians need to read The Christian Post The rare marriage book I would heartily recommend to any single, no matter his or her age, whether dating, courting, engaged, or disinterested ... Rich and practical. The Gospel Coalition Fifty years from now, if evangelical Christians are widely known for their love of cities, their commitment to mercy and justice, and their love of their neighbors, Tim Keller will be remembered as a pioneer of the new urban Christians. Christianity Today magazine Tim Keller's ministry in New York City is leading a generation of seekers and skeptics toward belief in God. I thank God for him. Billy Graham Do you ever feel or think that your marriage could do with a make-over? Have you read all the books? Been to marriage-enrichment weekends? Still want help and answers? Look no further - Timothy Keller has the answers, if you are serious about your relationship with the Godhead, Father, Son and Holy Spirit...This is the very best book that I have read on marriage. -- Rosemary Rowe Woman Alive
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Timothy Keller was born in Pennsylvania and educated at Bucknell University, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary. He became a Christian at university, was ordained by the Presbyterian Church in America and worked as a pastor for nine years. He was asked to start Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan in 1989, and under his leadership the church's congregation experienced unprecedented growth from 50 to 5000 members. His target audience consists mainly of urban professionals, whom he believes exhibit disproportionate influence over the culture and its ideas. The 'Influentials' Issue of New York Magazine featured Dr Keller as 'the most successful Christian evangelist in the city by recognizing that young professionals and artists are 'disproportionately influential' in creating the country's culture and that you have to meet this coveted demographic on its own terms.' Timothy Keller is renowned for his clear, reasoned approach to Christian apologetics and his book THE REASON FOR GOD: BELIEF IN AN AGE OF SCEPTICISM was named Book of the Year for 2008 by World Magazine. Timothy Keller lives in New York City with his wife Kathy and sons David, Michael and Jonathan.

Of course the authors are Christan and they have a point of view based on the Bible. Despite biblical references, I liked the fact they make a very clear distinction between a committed marriage and a consumer type of marriage (a "Me" marriage). This last type is what most of us are conditioned to look for, as in "you get all these benefits from me, what do I get from you?". To me it was an eye opener.
So they portray a brutally realistic vision of what marriage can be and, as a newlywed, I can't say I'm not a bit scared. They are also completely against "soulmates" and they have quite valid reasons for that. They are also opposed to cohabitation and their arguments are based on statistics, not the Bible. I share their point of view on that.
There is only one chapter dedicated to dating to get married and their suggestions are valid even for "non believers".
Along with The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman, this is an important book for those seeking to stay in a long term marriage.
