Douglas Wilson: Reforming Marriage

Canon Press, 1995     Amazon (second, revised edition, 2012)

Back Cover of Second Edition:

WilsonHow would you describe the spiritual aroma of your home? The source of this aroma is the relationship between husband and wife. Many can fake an attempt at keeping God’s standards in some exterior way. What we cannot fake is the resulting, distinctive aroma of pleasure to God. This is because godly marriages proceed from obedient hearts, and the greatest desire of an obedient heart is the glory of God, not the happiness of the household.

Most marriage books offer checklists and methods as the way to improve relationships without understanding that the real issue is always the heart. In Reforming Marriage, Douglas Wilson teaches couples how to cultivate a loving home, how to keep short accounts and defuse quarrels, and how to steer clear of problems like the Nice-Guy syndrome and the treadmill of confessing temptations. In short, he presents a practical theology of marriage that affects everything from sex to financial management to taking out the trash.
