The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God by by Timothy Keller and Kathy Keller

Both single and married people are addressed in this insightful exploration of marriage and God’s purpose for it, namely that “marriage was created to be a reflection on the human level of our ultimate love relationship and union with the Lord.” Biblical insights, 37 years of marriage, and numerous counseling sessions with both married and single people inform the authors’ critique of the cultural problems associated with marriage and the solutions for today’s couples and singles.

As a former counsellor many couples struggle with sex in marriage, both procreationally and recreationally{ for pleasure and intimacy] Some contend you cannot have sex for pleasure or intimacy-once you have had your children , it is over!!! Others will quote I corinthians7 And do those who write these books on marriage, do they themselves have a great intimate sex life and set a time aside for it! I personally believe that sex is not an isolated activity but part of the whole relationship and should be enjoyed regularly as in Corinthians It must be worked on to be enjoyed Sex in its right context is one of the MOST pleasureable activities and should be enjoyed to the fullest within marriage!Reformed christians sometimes have very jade and unholy view of sex
