In Christian Marriage: The Beautiful Order for Christian Marriage, Dr. David Ayers provides an in-depth look at Christian marriage, beginning with its definition and design by God. Dr. Ayers explores God’s purposes for marriage, unpacking them historically, theologically, and biblically. He also looks at what social science research and data says about the purpose of marriage and how much this affirms what the Bible expects us to see in terms of how marriage works and what happens when marriage doesn’t work. Dr. Ayers includes some practical teaching on choosing a spouse and dealing with the premarital part of life, and examines some of the causes and issues surrounding divorce. The course concludes with guidance for building strong marriages including some strategies for churches to help build stronger marriages.
