We all want, and need, to love and to be loved. We are made in the image of God, who is love. Healthy loving is at the very heart of true human flourishing, but human life is full of love gone wrong – marriages break down, relationships with family members are strained, loneliness is an ever–increasing problem. This book delves into what the Bible has to say on relationships – friendship, love, marriage, sex and family – and how to guard them and keep them
This is such a good book! Here is a pastor’s heart, rooted deeply in scripture, informed by careful reading of scholarship, earthed in the realities of the lives of men and women. It is wide–ranging in its scope, balanced in its judgements on uncertain matters, always warm and helpful. I commend it warmly.
