Three Good Marriage Resources

As a follow up to Sunday’s message on Marriage, here are three resources that shaped my reflections:

Mardi Keyes, Marriage: Is There a Place Between Cynicism and Idolatry?cultural and theological reflection on the state of marriage in the U.S.

Gary & Betsy Ricucci, Love that Lasts – a practical book on how to promote a godly marriage.

Kostenberger, God, Marriage and Family – a biblical treatment of marriage and family, more textual and less practical.
