Marriage, Sex in the Service of God
By Christopher Ash
This book gives an in depth and scholarly look at the purpose of marriage and its relevance today. What did God intend when he instituted marriage? What does marriage consist of? What does the bible say and how can we build on that understanding both in our own personal lives and in supporting others in marriage? "Christopher Ash argues that our modern idolisation of the sexual relationship contains within itself the seeds of its own destruction. To begin to rebuild a biblical confidence in marriage, we need to understand that the primary blessing and purpose of marriage is not sexual intimacy, but rather in serving God in partnership. This in turn leads to the blessings of love, friendship, children, and order in society, and will help us to rediscover that faithfulness which is at the heart of marriage." This book gives strong biblical foundations for a robust and positive attitude to the role of marriage in today's society and hope for those who really want to see their marriage and others' work and flourish.
A companion volume, Married for God, is now available for individuals, couples and leaders which covers the material in slightly less detail and is accompanied by study questions.
