Unofficial Study Guide for Tim & Kathy Keller's "The Meaning of Marriage"

When most people say, “This is the best book you’ll ever read on XYZ,” I usually yawn. When Tim Challies says it, I’m on the way to the Amazon. When Tim Challies says it about a book on marriage, I can’t press “Buy-now-with-one-click” quick enough.

And he’s right…again. Tim & Kathy Keller’s book on marriage is the best I’ve ever read on the subject. No matter how long or how short you’ve been married, it will expand and elevate your understanding and experience of this precious relationship – and, as a bonus, it will do the same to your relationship with Christ.

There are some profound and unforgettable illustrations and quotations that will transform the way you view yourself, your marriage partner, and your God.

I don’t see the point in writing a full review, because Tim’s review really says it all. However, as I’m working through the book with a young couple preparing for marriage, I thought I could contribute to the book’s usefulness for married couples and for pre-marriage counseling by writing an “Unofficial Study Guide.”

Hopefully the publishers will eventually produce their own, but until then, here’s mine in pdf format. And if you want to customize it for your own use, here it is in Word.
