God and Marriage




      God and Marriage
Far too many people, Christians not excluded, are self centeredly preoccupied with their own marital problems and their attempt to engineer solutions to them A theology of marriage can help them to achieve a God centered look at the larger situation of which their marriages constitute a small, if by no means unimportant, part In the long run a few look means a new understanding, and a new understanding means a new practice Geoffrey Bromiley Offering a new look at the increasingly unfashionable institution of marriage, Geoffrey Bromiley presents here a timely theological study which, unlike others books on marriage, aims exclusively to relate marriage to God as Creator, Son, and Holy Spirit Bromiley observes that God s work on reconciliation makes it possible for his people also to achieve reconciliation with one another, particularly in the marriage relationship In addition to thoroughly discussing the relationship of the Trinity to marriage, Bromiley examines such topics as incest, adultery and fornication, celibacy, the permanency of marriage, and remarriage after the death of a partner Dr Bromiley pays close, cautious, and sensitive attention to virtually every Scriptural passage about marriage, even the passages that are particularly difficult for our own era to cope with He makes no attempt to rewrite the Bible in the interest of some specially modern idea It is a book rooted deeply in the immeasurable principles of Creation and Redemption, and is full of sane, courageous, sound teaching Thomas Howard Gordon College I am very pleased with the book and feel it will fill a very special place in the available literature on Christian marriage It stands apart from the superficial writing that all but characterizes our time How to books are of little value apart from the basic theological understanding which must precede them This is a book I would like to have written, and a book which will be required reading for my students Dwight Small Westmont College Geoffrey W Bromiley is professor emeritus of Church History and Historical Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California He is best known as the translator of numerous theological books, including the 9 volume Theological Dictionary of the New Testament.

    This is one of those little books that turns out to be a big blessing It s a little different from most other books on marriage in that it is strongly doctrinal and not so much advice There are certainly practical aspects but it is put upon a strong foundation.Bromiley develops a biblical theology of marriage in four parts God the Father and marriage, God as the husband of Israel, God the Son and Marriage, and God the Holy Spirit and marriage The chapter on Israel is outstanding This is one of those little...

    Great little book In a market awash in books on the subject of marriage and family from a Christian perspective, this book offers a rich, but concise over view of what the Bible has to say on this topic I highly recommend it.
