“The Meaning of Marrige”: Read With Us & Study Materials

Timothy Keller’s book, “The Meaning of Marriage” is probably the best articulated book on the subject of marriage we’ve read.  And we’ve read a lot of books on the subject.  A lot.

Due to this, we’ve decided to offer an 8-week small group study at our home church this fall to give married couples the opportunity to read and discuss the book themselves.  We’re also giving each participant an audio message to supplement the reading for each week.  It’s a lot of material, but we believe that each person who chooses to go through the information and discuss it openly with their spouse and small group will greatly benefit by doing so.

Why are we telling you this?  Because you may want to join in yourself.  That’s right, we’re going to be providing a “Read With Us” series of posts where we’ll discuss the main content of each chapter as we go through the study.  However, we’re also willing to share the material we’re coming up with as well.  If you would like to lead a group of married friends through the study, or perhaps you would just like to go through the material with your spouse, we’ll be sure to make our participant guide questions as well as a leader’s guide available to you.

Our current plans are to begin the study on September 14, with our Week #1 “Read With Us” discussion post being published September 21.  We’ll continue with a new post each Friday until we finish the book and study on November 9.  We’re hoping that all who participate with us will comment/email questions on marriage and sex that we can write about toward the end of the study.

While these dates are pretty set in stone for us, you’re free to join in or begin the study in your own time and in your own way.  Just leave a comment below or send us an email, and we’ll be sure to get additional information into your hands as the summer comes to a close.

If you haven’t read Timothy Keller’s book “The Meaning of Marriage”, it really is a fantastic read.  And we’re confident that the “unofficial” study guide materials we have created with it will greatly aid marriage discussion.  We hope you’ll not only read with us, but encourage others to read with us as well.
