Books on Biblical Marriage

The Meaning of Marriage by Timothy Keller. Using the Bible as his guide, coupled with insightful commentary from his wife of thirty-six years, Kathy, Timothy Keller shows that God created marriage to bring us closer to him and to bring us more joy in our lives. It is a glorious relationship that is also the most misunderstood and mysterious. With a clear-eyed understanding of the Bible, and meaningful instruction on how to have a successful marriage, The Meaning of Marriage is essential reading for anyone who wants to know God and love more deeply in this life.  ALSO AVAILABLE IN DVD AND AS A STUDY!

Disciplines of a Godly Man by Kent Hughes. Kent offers a good, hard-hitting book on Christian manhood in key areas of life: marriage, fathering, godliness, purity, friendship, prayer, etc. Men are challenged to stand up to be Christian leaders in their family, church, and society. 

Intended for Pleasure by Ed Wheat. The classic on sex in Christian marriage, now updated and expanded. The most medically accurate description of sexual function in the male and female available today. This material is presented in wholesome terms that would be of help to any married or soon-to-be married couple.

Books on Godly Fatherhood

Age of Opportunity by Paul Tripp. Equips parents with vision and strategy to make the teen years a time of growth and opportunity rather than mere survival. Focuses on the heart rather than external behavior, beginning with the heart of the parent. Challenging, informing, and encouraging!

Shepherding a Child’s Heart by Ted Tripp. A biblical vision for the parenting task and specific objectives for each age group. The centrality of the Gospel and the focus on heart attitude rather than external conformity set this book apart from other parenting resources. Ideal for Sunday school classes or small groups.

Raising a Modern Knight by Robert Lewis. Beginning with a biblical perspective of manhood, author-pastor Lewis shares a unique approach to shaping a boy into a man by equipping him with three essential elements: a vision, a code of conduct, and a cause–Christianity–in which to invest his life.
