Why does marriage today seem to be such a far cry from Paradise?Let's face it. Our culture's version of marriage is not as God designed it to be. With a lot more emphasis on individualism and consumerism, today's married couples tend to lose sight of God's original purpose for marriage-a call for his people to take Jesus' message to the heart of everyday life.Marriage Made in Eden provides a radical alternative to today's view of marriage, giving a glimpse into the historical and cultural aspects that have shaped marriage in America. With this insightful analysis you'll learn how marriage has come to be in the state we now find it and about God's model and purpose for a sacred Christian union."Alice Mathews and Gay Hubbard bring together decades of experience in this thoughtful, interdisciplinary volume."-Mary Stewart Van Leeuwen, professor of psychology and philosophy, Eastern University"At last a profoundly biblical book on Christian marriage."-Gordon Fee, professor emeritus, Regent College"Must-reading for all Christians concerned with promoting an understanding of marriage that is in accordance with God's intentions."-Stanley J. Grenz, Pioneer McDonald Professor, Carey Theological CollegeAlice P. Mathews is Lois W. Bennett Distinguished Associate Professor of Educational Ministries and Women's Ministries at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.M.
