“Wow. Heartwarming, humorous, serious, filled with Christ, straightforward yet profound biblical insights, it’s all here. The video clips make this a tremendous marriage mentoring resource. Kathy and I have been at this dance for three decades, and there is a goldmine of insight here for us! Thanks CPH. Another home run!”
Rev. Matthew C. Harrison
This is what the president of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod had to say about a fantastic new resource from Concordia Publishing House, “Marriage by God’s Design.” This resource, so sorely needed, offers a warm, positive, helpful, clear and profoundly Biblically Lutheran approach to marriage. I need to underscore a couple things: this is not a resource only for couples thinking about getting married (though it will be very helpful for them). It is not a resource for people who are already married (though it will be enormously helpful for them). This is a resource for ALL Christians, to help them understand what God’ Word teaches about marriage, and why, and how, it is such an incredible blessings to, and for, all of us: married, or unmarried.
Marriage by God’s Design is a four-session, DVD-based study that examines the Bible’s teachings on marriage. Perfect for large or small groups, this resource can also be used for marriage preparation classes, marriage renewal retreats, or for a congregation-wide study on marriage.
The Bible begins with a marriage—Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden—and ends with a marriage—the marriage feast of Christ and His Bride, the Church.Throughout its pages, the Bible explains why God created His human creatures male and female and why He instituted marriage for them. Because Marriage by God’s Design focuses on the Bible, participants will learn and grow in the understanding and application of its teachings concerning married—and single—living.
