The chasm between the biblical vision of marriage and the common human conception is -- and has always been -- gargantuan. Reflecting on over forty years of matrimony, John Piper exalts the biblical meaning of marriage over its emotion, exhorting couples to keep their covenant as a display of Christ's covenant-keeping love for the church. He aims to lift the church's low view of marriage to something infinitely greater, namely, a vision of Jesus's unswerving allegiance to and affection for his bride. THIS MOMENTARY MARRIAGE unpacks the biblical vision, its unexpected contours, and its weighty implications for married, single, divorced, and remarried alike.
"The aim of this book is to enlarge your vision of what marriage is. As Bonhoeffer says, it is more than your love for each other. Vastly more. Its meaning is infinitely great. I say that with care. The meaning of marriage is the display of the covenant-keeping love between Christ and his people"
