The Diamond Marriage

Simon Vibert (Christian Focus, 2005)

Blurb Review


This book goes beyond the ‘me' and ‘us' focus of most marriage books and asks the question: ‘why has God gone to such great lengths to create marriage as we know it? and ‘what is its purpose?' Why are many Christians content with a poor understanding of Christian love in marriage? How can joy in marriage be revived? Simon Vibert's biblical perspective on marriage moves us away from dutiful and joyless relationships and turns the marriage vow from ‘till death do us part' into ‘whilst we enjoy life'. Packed with insight, wisdom and wit, Vibert helps us to re-assess our views, provides new light on the same-sex marriage debate, and restores marriage to its rightful status - for us and before God.
