Books I Recommend: Marriage

We have not always been well-served by books on marriage, but in recent years we have seen several excellent new titles. Here are some of my book recommendations for books on marriage.

Top Recommendation

The Meaning of Marriage by Tim Keller

This is a powerful book; it is my new favorite book on marriage and the best of all the books I read in 2011. The Meaning of Marriage elevates marriage, making it something beautiful and holy and lovely. And with it comes friendship and companionship and sex and everything else God has packaged into the marriage relationship. This book celebrates it all and it does it within the greatest context of all–the gospel of Jesus Christ.
