it was amazing
Read in December, 2011

Keller has entered the crowded world of books written on the subject of marriage. His book however, is not to be considered "just another book on marriage" using insights into culture and to the Word, Keller argues persuasively and powerfully for the importance of marriage. What I appreciated were the arguments against things like casual/premarital sex. What I perhaps did not appreciate so much was Keller's constant use of "studies" and writers on the subject of marriage. This book is not an exegesis of marriage passages in the Bible, although he does exegete some. It is a look at the benefits, value and importance of marriage - but not a glorification of marriage to the detriment of singles. I sure appreciated reading this book.
