The world has changed, and it's going to keep changing.

That's no big revelation, but we cling to the fleeting hope that we can return to the gentler, more stable days gone by . . . especially where our marriages are concerned. But the truth is, we can't, because as the world changes, so do we, and so do our marriages.

Let's face it: marriage and the home have altered drastically through the years. Men afraid to be men. Women ashamed of being women. Children unsure of who's in charge. Blended and not-so-well-blended families. Homes that have become battlegrounds. And all of it so unstable, so temporary.

In the face of these depressing facts, beloved pastor and Bible teacher Chuck Swindoll offers a refreshing dose of hope and practical help for marriage. His sage advice, based on the Bible and his own fifty-year marriage, shows us how to move our marriages from just surviving to actually thriving. And that target can be hit dead-center if we rely on God and His Word as our marriage counselor, our guide, our glue.

Is marriage really the church's business?

There's no doubt marriage is messy and comes with plenty of baggage. But is a couple's marriage really anyone's business but their own? Of course. Marriage doesn't affect just a husband and wife. It affects their kids, their community, even the health of the church your church. When marriages are strong, attendance, tithing, volunteerism, even the quality of worship tends to go up. When marriages are weak, the opposite usually happens.

In Married People: How Your Church Can Build Marriages that Last, Ted Lowe and Doug Fields show how the church is uniquely positioned, despite being overcommitted in time and resources, to be in the business of building marriages. For every ministry leader pastor, age group minister, family minister, even the dedicated volunteer this book offers a vision and a step-by-step strategy for empowering marriages and strengthening the church in the process.

__________

Years ago, my wife and I had the great benefit of learning about how wonderful a marriage can be from Ted Lowe and the amazing events he produced. That he's partnered with Doug Fields and created a book to help other marriages is absolutely awesome!
Jon Acuff, New York Times bestselling author of Start and Stuff Christians Like

If you think marriage ministry is outdated, boring, preachy or feminine, then please read Married People. Ted Lowe and Doug Fields do a masterful job of crafting a relevant, fun and engaging marriage ministry strategy for the local church. I know of no other book like it. My hope is that churches will implement their approach and everyone will be FOR marriage.
Ted Cunningham, founding pastor, Woodland Hills Family Church, Branson, Missouri, and author of Fun Loving You and Trophy Child

Every church is filled with couples struggling in their marriage. We want to help couples have an amazing marriage, but most of our time, resources, and energy are given as a reaction to marital crisis. What I love about Married People is the holistic vision it provides every church and pastor to gain influence with married people and create irresistible environments for them to grow in their love for God and each other. We can't change a human heart, but we can provide the space and opportunities for God to transform married couples. This is a must-have resource for all churches.
Justin Davis, pastor, Cross Point Church, Nashville, Tennessee, and co-author of Beyond Ordinary: When a Good Marriage Just Isn't Good Enough

As culture shifts and marriages continue to struggle, the church at large is desperate to find its voice in engaging, equipping and empowering today's marriages. Married People: How Your Church Can Build Marriages that Last gives words to start conversations and reignite passion within the church to be a voice for this generation and generations to come.
Trisha Davis, co-author of Beyond Ordinary: When a Good Marriage Just Isn't Good Enough and co-founder, RefineUs Ministries

Meeting Girls Like Us Book 2 Old Testament Women

Meeting Girls Like Us Book 2 Old Testament Women
$8.95

While devout Christians revere the Bible, many tend to regard it as an allegorical text written thousands of years ago and ignore its relevance to modern life.

In Meeting Girls like Us, Book 2: Old Testament Women, Barby Bailey takes the opposite approach. She analyzes the stories of six biblical heroines and uses them as inspirational examples of how modern women can cope with the many challenges around them. Not only does she bring these women to life, but she also regards them as sisters who have confronted and conquered similar problems.

She tells us about Naomi, who battled famine, homelessness, death, and poverty. There's Hannah, who used to power of prayer to cope with her infertility. Abigail deals with a wealthy but ill-tempered husband, Bathsheba struggles for forgiveness, Ezekiel's wife was carted off to a foreign land against her will, and Gomer contended with temptation and infidelity. Bailey personalizes each of these stories, annotating them with scriptural references and amplifying their meaning by relating them to her own life.

In relating these six stories, Bailey not only makes us feel that we know these women: she allows us to understand ourselves better.

Evangelicals stand divided in their view of women in the church. On one side stand complementarians, arguing the full worth of women but assigning them to differing roles. On the other side stand egalitarians, arguing that the full worth of women demands their equal treatment and access to leadership roles. Is there a way to mend the breach and build consensus? Sarah Sumner thinks there is. Avoiding the pitfalls of both radical feminism and reactionary conservatism, she traces a new path through the issues--biblical, theological, psychological and practical--to establish and affirm common ground. Arguing that men and women are both equal and distinct, Sumner encourages us to find ways to honor and benefit from the leadership gifts of both. Men and Women in the Church is a book for all who want a fresh and hope-filled look at a persistent problem.

The debate about men and women in the church and in marriage continues to cause division among Christians. Most books on this issue are written from a firmly partisan point of view - complementarian or egalitarian. This one is unique.

Andrew Bartlett draws on his theological learning and his skills as a judge and arbitrator to offer an even-handed assessment of the debate. His analysis is thorough but accessible. He engages with advocates of each view and all the key biblical texts, weighing the available evidence and offering fresh insights. He invites the reader to move beyond complementarian and egalitarian labels and seeks progress towards healing the division.
