How would you describe the spiritual aroma of your home? The source of this aroma is the relationship between husband and wife. Many can fake an attempt at keeping God's standards in some external way. What we cannot fake is the resulting, distinctive aroma of pleasure to God. Reforming Marriage does what few books on marriage do today: it provides biblical advice. Douglas Wilson points to the need for obedient hearts on the part of both husbands and wives. Godly marriages proceed from obedient hearts, and the greatest desire of an obedient heart is the glory of God.

Review: Reforming Marriage

User Review  - Chad Gray - Goodreads

A really helpful book on a topic with tons of garbage "Christian" books to wade through. Wilson provides a sound theology of marriage with solid applications. He also gives a lot of practical, counter cultural advice on having a biblical, Christ-centered, covenantal, joyful home. Recommended! Read full review

Review: Reforming Marriage

User Review  - Heather Anderson - Goodreads

This was a really good book. Doug hits men really hard, though. Although women are encouraged to be biblical and responsible, men are the ones really given a kick in the pants here. It made me want to pray for my husband more. It could, however, give a discontent woman more ammo. Read full review
