Sacred Marriage

As my countdown to marriage is now less than 3 weeks, I am finishing up a couple of books on the subject. This weekend I finished 'Sacred Marriage' by Gary Thomas. It was pretty good. It was almost 300 pages, and I think he could have made it about 75. There were some good insights though. The sub-title is 'What If God Designed Marriage to Make Us Holy More than to Make Us Happy?' It is more a book on sanctification, kind of like Scott's 'Exemplary Husband', which I need to hear over and over. "Any situation that calls me to confront my selfishness has enormous spiritual value, and I slowly began to understand that the real purpose of marriage may not be happiness as much as it is holiness."
