Helpful Books on Marriage

*UPDATED* Below is a list of books on Christian marriage I have either read or gotten a strong referrals for from men I trust. They are taken from a larger list of “Recommended Reading” covering topics on marriage, parenting, manhood, doctrine/theology, and Christian living. Disclaimer: Just because I recommend a book for reading does not necessarily mean that I agree with every single premis or view the author takes up. My recommendation comes based on the fact that the helpful, Christ-centered views contained within the book outweigh any views I may personally disagree with.

Please feel free to leave a comment suggesting books on the topic of marriage that will help others grow in their relationship with Christ and their spouse. Please list the title, author, and a few brief thoughts on how the book has helped you in your marriage.

    One of the most helpful books I’ve read on marriage was: Sacred Marriage by Garry Thomas – This book helped me understand that my marriage was not about nor for me. It was about God, my marriage being a picture of His gospel, and how I can love my wife by serving & leading her.

    Currently reading through Tim Keller’s the Meaning of Marriage.
    So far it is a thoughtful read that focuses on how the gospel applies to marriage.
    It also does a get job for giving an apologetic for marriage in a culture that increasingly undervalues
    the importance of the marriage covenant.
