The hope for a successful marriage remains hidden in almost every heart. In fact, it is imprinted on your spiritual DNA: Two becoming One. Why then is there so much confusion and failure in marriage today? Why have so many of our children endured not just divorce, but serial monogamy?

We have lost an understanding of the purpose of marriage and the nature of the commitment it requires. We have reduced marriage to a vehicle for self-fulfillment when it was created to meet the needs of others. We are trying to chart our own courses because we are biblically illiterate.

Written as a course for engaged couples preparing for marriage, Becoming a Better Lover serves as a reference for anyone who wishes to grow in love and to nurture his/her marriage. Marriage isn't rocket science, but it does take vision, and it does require adopting God's worldview. Far from being a cultural artifact, the intricate wisdom of God's design is increasingly illuminated by research in the social sciences. Here is a guide for living life in sync with the way God created you and for allowing him to change you from the inside out.
