The Meaning of Marriage: Free Study Guide
Have you read Timothy & Kathy Keller’s book, “The Meaning of Marriage”? It’s an excellent book on the subject of marriage. While we are not affiliated with the Keller’s or Redeemer church, we have compiled an unofficial study guide that may be used with the book. This study is being downloaded more and more every day here on our blog as well the LifeChurch.tv Life Group resources page. While it’s been specifically designed for use in small group environments, married couples may also benefit from discussing the material on their own.
Feel free to use this study material in the best way you see fit. That said, we want to let you know that we have incorporated 8 messages on the subject of marriage into the study, including some from Timothy Keller himself. Therefore, be sure to check out everything you need below.
The Meaning of Marriage (Participant’s Guide): This is a the regular study guide for nearly all who wish to go through the study.
The Meaning of Marriage (Leader’s Guide): This is a copy of the same material with additional leader’s notes included. This will be best utilized by those who are facilitating discussion in a small group setting.
Audio Files: This link will allow you to download all of the messages that we have found freely elsewhere. However, there are two great messages by Timothy Keller that are only available to be purchased online. The cost for these 2 messages is $5. However, as the entire series is excellent, we would recommend spending $20 for all 9 messages. Whatever you decide, the two messages you’ll need for this study are:
1. Marriage as Ministry Power
2. Overview, Marriage as Commitment
These messages, or the entire series, may be purchased here.
We have written weekly posts about “The Meaning of Marriage” as part of our ‘Read With Us’ campaign. So, as you read through the book and study material, we’d love for you to chime in with any thoughts you may have about the book, marriage, sex, etc. Thanks for stopping by, and we hope this study will bless your marriage.
A tremendous amount of effort has gone into making this material available, and we would love to hear your feedback so that it may be improved even further. After you complete the study, please consider commenting or writing to us with your feedback. Thank you.
