A Daring Promise: A Spirituality of Christian Marriage
Author: Richard R. Gaillardetz
|Christian marriage offers the daring proposition that, inspired by faith, two people might unconditionally bind themselves together for life without destroying each other in the process! This revised and updated edition offers a set of honest and penetrating reflections on the challenges of living faithful Christian marriage today.|
Chapter 1: Alerts couples to today's cultural forces that shape their understanding and practice of married life.
Chapter 2: Our deepest religious convictions provide a basis for a spirituality of marriage.
Chapter 3: It is important to see our spouses as "companions" on the journey.
Chapter 4: Married couples must also embrace the call to conversion and recognize that their marriage will be the privileged place wherein they will work out their salvation.
Chapter 5: Reflections avoid both an overly romantic treatment of marital sexuality and the reduction of sex to procreative obligations.
Chapter 6: Marriage is a vocation to Christian mission. One's obligations as parents are an invitation to create in the home a school for Christian discipleship.
Gaillardetz creatively draws on the deep wisdom of our Christian tradition while reflecting on the lived experience of marriage. Written with a refreshing sense of candor and humor, this book is informative, lively, and personal, providing wonderful insight into the daring adventure of Christian marriage.
