The Helpful Marriage Book: Biblical Wisdom for Husbands and Wives
$8.99 – $13.99
by Tim Bayly with Mary Lee Bayly
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes . . . what, exactly?
Marriage is hard work. It’s often full of failure and heartache. After all, husbands and wives are sinners. And even if they’re both Christians who want to serve God and obey Scripture, it can be hard to know how, especially in twenty-first–century America.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a marriage book that was honest about marriage? One that gave everyday practical advice without pretending like it could solve all your problems in ten easy steps? One that didn’t try to hide the Bible’s straightforward teaching on sexuality? One that gave you hope in God’s promises without papering over the messy work involved in building a godly home in a sinful world? What if there was a marriage book that was just . . . helpful?
Pastor Tim Bayly decided to write one. After four decades of pastoral ministry and thousands of hours counseling hundreds of married couples, he boils down some of his most helpful wisdom on marriage. And everything is on the table: birth control, fighting with your spouse, what books to read together, approaching physical intimacy when emotional intimacy is sorely lacking, dealing with sexual abuse, raising kids who love God, confessing sin . . . and much, much more. In these essays you’ll find truly practical guidance rooted in the wisdom of God’s Word.
Marriage is difficult. But with the Lord’s kindness, The Helpful Marriage Book will make it a little easier.
