Multnomah Books The Mystery of Marriage, 20th Anniversary Edition

In the 20th anniversary edition of this Gold Medallion Award winner, Mike Mason goes on a poetic search to understand the wondrous dynamics of committed love. In highly readable, first-person style, Mason's writing stimulates readers' thoughts and prayers and propels couples to deeper intimacy. "A marriage is not a joining of two worlds," says the author , "but an abandoning of two worlds in order that one new one might be formed." Rich chapters on "Otherness," "Vows," "Intimacy," "Sex," "Submission," and an all-new chapter on "Oneness" lift readers to view the eternal, spiritual nature of this faith-filled, "impossible," wild yet wonderful frontier.

This book is not the "how to" of many marriage books, but the "why"--why bother with marriage at all, what is so important to God about marriage, what it means in the grand scheme of things. Marriage is not just about us and our pleasure--though it is that also. A confirmed bachelor that I knew decided to get married because this book showed him a much higher picture of marriage than he had ever seen before. It represents a view of marriage that desperately needs to be recovered today.
