Take a look at the gospels with "married" eyes. "The Pearl of Great Price: Gospel Wisdom for Christian Marriage" shows married and engaged couples how to pray and reflect on God's Word together, allowing the beautiful intimacy of prayer in marriage to become reality. This simple yet profound book considers such basic gospel stories as Joseph's wedding jitters, the angel's appearance to Mary, and the wedding at Cana - all providing spiritual meaning for today's couples. Inspired by "Lectio Divina", an ancient Christian prayer technique, "The Pearl" helps couples deepen their marital relationship and find God at the heart of their marriage. It is a wonderful guide for marriage preparation and enrichment and makes a meaningful wedding or anniversary gift. This tiny book fits conveniently into both pockets and busy lives, but its big title reminds us that like all of God's gifts, a good marriage is worth more than a world of possessions.
