Holy Matrimony: The Image of God in the Family teaches that the admiration and imitation of God is both God's purpose for creating marriage and His method for strong marriage. Neglect of the theological core of marriage, especially loyal love to a covenant, has led to superficial preaching and unworkable counsel for marital troubles. Family strength can only arise from spiritual strength. Excellent material for sermons and marriage counseling.
