"Bob and Karen have given us great teaching and tools to equip our church with gospel centered identity. The Spirit has used their studies to bring Gospel renovation to so many churches and lives. We are excited for this new work on marriage." Rusty Milton, Senior Pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Dothan, Alabama"The authors, Bob and Karen Smart, have experienced the many faces of marriage: their relationship, the marriage of their five children, and their counseling of the many couples they have known over the years. Their book is honest, caring, and spiritual. Marriage can be a life-long friendship that reveals the glory of Christ. A Christian marriage brings out rich, spiritual, and transcendent qualities: compassion, love, understanding, gentleness, freedom, life, glory, and self-control. Christians fully alive are to the glory of their Savior, as St. Irenaeus reminds us 'Life in man is the glory of God; the life of man is the vision of God.'" Dr. Willem VanGemeren, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School “I've read many great books on marriage, and I still highly recommend thisone. Bob does an amazing job of getting to the real spiritual roots of thehardship, struggle and sin that comes up in marriage. He helps us diagnosisbiblically what makes us, and our spouses, tick so that we can practically love one another well.” Olan Stubbs"I rejoice to see this fine counsel from a long faithful ministry couple, who honor God not only in the public practices of ministry, but in the private practices of prayer, discipleship, marriage, and family. The sweet spirit of Bob and Karen Smart radiates through this book in the ways that they present God's Word, reveal the struggles and triumphs of their own lives, and share pastoral compassion for their readers."
