Marriage is great, but marriage is hard. A continual learning experience. An up-close, totally exposed, nowhere-to-hide sharing of life's everythings--the good and the not-so-good--where the real you becomes really known. Even to yourself. And where grace and forgiveness, both given and received, are able through God to become more raw and redemptive than you ever thought possible.

30 Days to Your Best Marriage is a prime way to keep your relationship growing and thriving. It provides the kind of spiritual connection point that helps you walk hand-in-hand together, traveling through Bible verses that focus on the covenant of marriage and the impact God intends it to create on each of you, individually and as a couple. After 30 days of focusing on your marriage through the lens of Scripture, you'll begin to experience a new joy in doing life together.

Everyone has expectations, but not everyone acknowledges them. In marriage, unrecognized expectations can be especially dangerous--when couples expect each other to be and act a certain way without communicating their assumptions, disappointment is never too far away. Now, relationship expert Gary Smalley and his pastor and friend Ted Cunningham show couples how to defuse the ticking bomb of unrealistic expectations and arm their marriage with healthy communication and honest intimacy. As Long as We Both Shall Live will help couples acknowledge their unexpressed assumptions, understand one another's genuine needs, and talk openly about their hopes and desires. Women and men will find the tools they need to build lasting and loving marriages.

For years, William Gouge's Domestical Duties has stood as the foremost Puritan treatment of Christian family life. Yet due to its size and antiquated expression, it has become almost unknown among current generations of believers. To help revive the usefulness of this classic book, Scott Brown and Joel R. Beeke divided Gouge's work into three manageable volumes, updated the language to modern standards, and have given it the title Building a Godly Home.

In the first volume, A Holy Vision for Family Life, we hear the voice of a wise and loving mentor, calling us to the old paths laid out for the family in the Bible. Here is Gouge's helpful exposition of Ephesians 5:21"€"6:4, where he lays out the wife's voluntary submission to her husband, the husband's sacrificial love for his wife, the child's obedient honoring of parents, and the parents' nurturing leadership of their children. Reading it is like sitting down to coffee with a gentle grandfather and wise pastor.

Marriage is under siege in our time, and Christian unions are not going unscathed. Dr. Michael A.G. Haykin believes that love letters written by Christian husbands and wives of the past can help strengthen the ties that bind believing spouses today. In this anthology, he brings together letters from one or both parties in twelve significant relationships from church history. The contents range from courtship communications to proposals of marriage to final words before dying, but most have to do with the ups and downs of married life. In the end, The Christian Lover is a celebration of marriage, an intimate window into the thoughts of men and women who were deeply in love with both God and one another.

Why should we care about marriage?

There is a lot of confusion about the purpose of marriage today: outside the church as well as within it. Written by a distinguished Christian sociologist, Christian Marriage is a theologically rich, biblically robust, and sociologically informed treatise on the nature and value of marriage. Drawing on recent social science research, empirical data, and social history, Ayers paints a picture of marriage as an institution meant for human flourishing.

Along the way, Ayers addresses such topics as:

  • Dating and selection of a spouse
  • The importance of premarital counseling
  • Sex and procreation
  • Mentoring and supporting unmarried believers
  • Divorce and remarriage
  • Current controversies surrounding premarital sex and same-sex marriage
  • Though the book is academically and theologically informed, it is written with a pastoral heart. It seeks to provide a rich resource for pastors and counselors on a topic of supreme importance to a vibrant church and society.

    n many Christian circles this may be a taboo subject-spoken of in hushed tones or behind closed doors. But it is a very real problem that must be brought into the light of Scripture. Abuse in the church takes different forms, but it is alive and active even in "nice" families in our churches. Typically, the abuser is male, usually a husband and his character is that of a manipulating deceiver! Countless women and children even many faithful pastors have been abused by these deceivers. Have you, or someone you know, been a victim? Has an abuser: Threatened physical violence if he does not get away? Intimidated you with abusive language? Denied you affection? Denied you medical attention? Manipulated friends and acquaintances in order to gain allies? Pastor Jeff Crippen uses his over thirty years of experience to rip the lid off this most insidious behavior that is often hidden in plain sight. He not only maintains that Bible believing churches have ignored or failed to face the problem, he insists that when they do counsel a victim of abuse, they get it all wrong! The result is that the victim gets pulled into deeper-even life threatening-danger! This book will come as a life-saver in a raging sea for those under the thumb of an abusive spouse of "friend." The Lord Jesus Christ wants you to be free in him: spiritually, emotionally, and, yes, physically. Every pastor also needs to read this book, either because they too have been a victim, but, more importantly, so that they properly counsel those caught in a cycle of abuse."

    Duck Dynasty stars Al and Lisa Robertson were desperate for their love to survive--and with God's help, they realized the only answer to marital and family betrayal is all-consuming, life-altering, desperate forgiveness. In their new book, they share this message with anyone who wants to exchange broken relationships for healing.

    The Robertsons know what they're talking about: They have lived through the pain of adultery and lack of communication in their marriage. And thanks to the healing they've experienced, they now help other couples find their own path to forgiveness.

    This former pastor of 22 years and his wife want you to arrive at a place where you, too, can give and receive forgiveness and find the beauty of reconciliation.

    By sharing true stories from friends and family, as well as biblical examples, Desperate Forgiveness provides the support you'll need on the hard road to forgiveness. You'll learn about the necessity and power of humility; the freedom found in letting go of bitterness; and the restoration and reclamation on the other side of desperation. Al and Lisa Robertson are living proof that choosing and living out forgiveness is worth the effort. Let Desperate Forgiveness show you the way to a changed life and revitalized marriage.

    - identify damaging behaviors

    - promote healthy change
    - stay safe
    - understand when, why, and even how to leave
    - recognize that God sees and hates what is happening to you
