When Sinners Say I Do

by on October 27, 2007

Ok, if you’re going to seminary I am going to assume that you like to read. If you don’t… um, yeah, seminary is not going to be fun for you. So, here at goingtoseminary.com you’ll probably find lots of book recommendations. Today is no different.

While books can’t, in and of themselves, make your marriage better, there are certainly books that will help you to focus on Jesus a little more clearly and thus better understand how to be a better spouse. I was recently give a free copy of When Sinners Say I Do: Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage, by Dave Harvey, thanks to the very kind folks at the Westminster Bookstore and want to say that it is really amazing.

Harvey dives into the often neglected fact that we are sinners (yes, saved by grace and made righteous in Christ… but sinner) and that this is ultimate reason for conflict in our marriages… Two sinners, together, till death. Thankfully, the very gospel that saves and transform our personal lives is the very gospel that will save and transform your marriage. Harvey is a great writer and this one is well worth the read.

Anyone else picked this one up? What did you think?
