The Journal for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood recently published a brief review of mine on John Piper’s book This Momentary Marriage: A Parable of Permanence. I’m grateful for this book for many reasons. It’s succinct, practical, and encouraging. But the main thing I appreciated about it is the way Piper explicitly applied the God-centered meaning of marriage to the expressions of marriage (and singleness) that we experience in this life. By proceeding in this fashion, not only is there plenty of very thoughtful practical counsel for marriages today, but also there is great confidence that the practical counsel is deeply rooted in the soil of a robust and biblically based theology.

If this sounds intriguing or encouraging, then read on a bit about the book. Then get ready to dive into it yourself or with your spouse or fiancée.
