Marriage is designed by God to endure. Best-selling author Gary Thomas explores God’s purpose for marriage and explains how the best marriages are those steeped in worship. Unlike appearances, worship is something that grows more beautiful with time, making marriage more lovely through the years, not less. Gary shares how God spoke to him about his wife, and how that admonition revolutionized his marriage. Gary Thomas also encourages every couple to discover their magnificent obsession—something they love to do for the glory of God. Since we were created in Christ to do good works, Gary invites husbands and wives to find some ministry they can do together, resulting in a marriage built for eternity.
