God wants your marriage to be a joy and blessing, but you must embrace the principles in His Word!
Nearly everything in life comes with instructions–from the cell phones we use to the automobiles we drive. Yet when it comes to marriage, many people struggle without proper guidance. Couples experience pain and conflict when love and joy should flourish. The good news is there are instructions for marriage too, written by the One who created marriage. In Marriage God’s Way, Pastor Scott LaPierre presents these biblical instructions combined with:
- Personal stories and application to daily life
- Explanations of the roles and responsibilities God has given husbands and wives
- Answers to common questions about godly love and how to show it, headship and submission, intimacy, and establishing an indestructible foundation for your relationship
God intended marriage to be one of the greatest gifts on this side of Heaven. In Marriage God’s Way, whether you are preparing for your wedding, newlyweds, or marriage veterans, you will learn the Recipe for a Healthy, Joyful, Christ-Centered Relationship.

Marriage God’s Way is a thorough and comprehensive treatment of marriage. The reader who works his way through this volume will be richly rewarded.
Most Christian books on marriage today don’t have much scripture in them. Not this one. It is saturated with the Word of God. If you want a book that is built on the foundation of exposition of scripture, this book is for you. While Scott offers many practical insights, they are all grounded in the biblical text using biblical language. This book will take you from Genesis to Revelation on marriage. It will fill your mind with the pure and perfect word of God. This is what every marriage needs.
With the divorce rate for Christians lagging just behind that of unbelievers, there is no shortage of Christian books on marriage. Unfortunately, few of these books offer lasting effectiveness, because they lack the authority and wisdom of Scripture. Most merely weave together tidbits of human wisdom and pop ideas spiced up with random Scripture verses. Scott LaPierre understands that strong marriages need more than tidbits of wisdom and pop ideas. He knows that as the Designer of marriage, God gave us His Word as a sort of owner’s manual. Therefore, in Marriage God’s Way Scott draws upon the authority and wisdom of the Bible to help every couple find the passion, intimacy, and romance that God intended.
I enjoyed Marriage God’s Way immensely and I can’t imagine getting tired of it even if I read it every single day. However, it took me quite a while to read the entire book but not because it is not an easy read, because it, in fact, is, but because I internalize it as much as I can. Moreover, this book will be more appreciated by readers who are knowledgeable in the Scriptures. The book offers a formula for an ideal marriage, but only if both of the spouses read it, take it to heart and put it into practice. I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. It is inspiring and enlightening. I recommend it not only to married people but also to those who are planning to get married.
