Obstacles and challenges are a normal part of married life. Here’s how you get through them.
This book will lead you to understand what happens when two people tie the proverbial knot. The trials and obstacles that inevitably follow are nothing unusual—how they are handled is what helps distinguish a successful marriage from an unsuccessful one.
Specific advice about handling finances, keeping house, sexual relations, bringing up children, and other very important matters will not be found here. Instead, The Good, The Bad, and The Beautiful focuses on the relationship between husband and wife, for from this flows the motivation, energy, and wisdom to deal with the problems and challenges facing married couples. Unless you make this relationship your main concern, all your efforts in other areas of married life will be out of balance and ultimately unsuccessful.
If you are seeking a successful and fulfilling marriage, or the restoration of a failing one, you will find meaning and hope in the joys of learning and practicing God's blessed plan for husband and wife.
Meditations from the Psalms and Proverbs to help you ponder the beauty of God’s Word and grow in worship and wisdom.
The inspired prayers of Psalms range through the entire gamut of human emotions: faith and doubt; elation and sorrow; hope and despair; confidence and terror; love and hate. We read magnificent paeans of praise, and howling wails of complaint. With utter honesty, they allow us to express our hearts to the LORD, knowing that he hears us. With a growing crescendo, they point us back to God who cares for his people. Through them, we learn how to worship.
The Book of Proverbs contains wise sayings from David’s son Solomon and others. On the surface, it seems to focus on this life and how to live it well. Here we learn about sex, money, and power; the proper use of the tongue, relating well to others, and the path to success. From the opening chapter to the end, however, one theme dominates: If we want to be wise, we need to fear and to love God.
Awards, Reviews, and Coverage
This book unfolds the many ways in which the Gospel of Matthew presents Jesus as not only King of the Jews, but the one to whom “all authority in heaven and earth” has been given. Brief meditations on virtually every verse in Matthew portray Jesus as both God and man, and as teacher, healer, and liberator from demons, sin, and death.
Drawing almost entirely on Matthew’s Gospel for his interpretation of each passage, the author also shows how Christ calls His people to follow Him faithfully, regardless of the cost.
This book is ideal for personal enrichment or group study.
