Friends and Lovers: Towards Companionship and Intimacy in Marriage
2 in stock
Neither a comprehensive marriage manual, nor a complete exploration of the theological significance of marriage, this book focuses on two key ingredients in a vital marriage: friendship and sexual intimacy. Drawing from the wisdom of the Bible, especially the Book of Proverbs, Joel Beeke shows you how to grow closer to your spouse both emotionally and physically.
"By laying the theological, emotional, social, and spiritual foundations of marriage before heading to the bedroom, Joel Beeke provides a healthy corrective to the excessive and obsessive sex-focus of our generation... But, thankfully, he also goes on to provide wise, practical, down-to-earth direction for couples wanting to discover or recover physical intimacy that will both satisfy themselves and honor God."?
- Dr. David Murray, Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
"A book about love, marriage, and sex from Joel Beeke that is surprisingly candid yet without a trace of smuttiness... Fresh and refreshingly straightforward, this is the best book of its kind."?
- Derek W.H. Thomas, Minister of Preaching and Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia
