What the Bible Teaches About...Marriage
Author Anthony Selvaggio
The purpose of this book is not to provide the reader with another how-to book on relationships; there are plenty of other books offering that elixir. The purpose of this book is fourfold: 1. To provide you with a new found appreciation for the wonders of an oft neglected and misinterpreted portion of Gods inerrant and infallible Word. 2. To equip you to comprehend the wisdom which the Song of Songs offers regarding various aspects of romantic love, marriage and human sexuality. 3. To help you begin to think about how this wisdom applies to your own context. 4. To assist you in seeing the glory and richness of divine love revealed in the person and work of Jesus Christ. This book is an effort to address the topics of human sexuality, romance and marriage from the Bible with deep theological reflection.
'In What the Bible teaches about marriage Anthony Selvaggio blends biblical-theological insight with pastoral wisdom to produce an unusual and illumining "marriage manual"". He grounds down-to-earth, contemporary, heart-searching advice to engaged and married couples not only in the human affection and passion celebrated in the Song of Songs, but also in the history-long courtship of Christ and his Bride, showing that through the reconciling, transforming grace of our heavenly Bridegroom our marriages can beautifully foreshadow NOW the final consummation of his love for his church at the great Wedding for which our hearts yearn.'
