CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE Great Christian truths

Publisher's Description This book has been written because of the need for Christians, from whatever cultural background, to develop a biblical understanding of marriage. In three major sections, Paul Brown examines first what the Bible says about marriage, considering a number of important passages from both the Old Testament and the New Testament. He then addresses a number of practical questions relating to marriage in the light of this biblical background. The final section considers marriage itself more closely; its blessings and its difficulties, its opportunities and its dangers, its challenges and what Christian responses should be. Written in a clear and straightforward style, this book gives a basic introduction to the subject and encourages readers to study the Bible carefully for themselves. It provides a helpful summary for all believers and seeks to encourage Pastors and Christian leaders to gain a thorough understanding of all the aspects of this subject and to develop a thoughtful, caring, sympathetic approach as they minister to God's people.
