Marriage reveals something of eternal significance. From the beginning, God designed marriage to convey a greater reality - the passionate, unfailing, redeeming love of God for sinners; the eternal romance between Christ and His bride.
In this volume, Ray Ortlund traces marriage throughout Scripture - from the first marriage in the garden of Eden to the ultimate marriage in the book of Revelation - laying out a transcendent vision of marriage that dignifies our own imperfect unions as a display of the gospel. This book offers insight and hope to every married person today.
"Captivating, alluring, and tearfully rendered... Marriage and the Mystery of the Gospel displays the blood-bought gift of biblical marriage amidst the splendor of the whole biblical landscape... This is not just another book on marriage. Readers will drink in a tour de force of biblical majesty on display on each and every page." - Rosaria Butterfield, Speaker; Author, The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert
