Most Christian books on marriage today don't have much Scripture in them. Not this one. It is saturated with the Word of God. If you want a book that is built on the foundation of exposition of Scripture, this book is for you. While Scott offers many practical insights, they are all grounded in the biblical text using biblical language. Marriage God's Way will fill your mind with the pure and perfect Word of God. This is what every marriage needs. Scott T. Brown

With the divorce rate for believers lagging just behind that of unbelievers, there is no shortage of Christian books on marriage. Unfortunately, few of these books offer lasting effectiveness, because they lack the authority and wisdom of Scripture. Most merely weave together tidbits of human wisdom and pop ideas spiced up with random verses. Pastor Scott understands that strong marriages need more than tidbits of wisdom and pop ideas. He knows that as the Designer of marriage, God gave us His Word an owner's manual. Therefore, in Marriage God's Way,Scott draws upon the authority and wisdom of the Bible to help every couple find the passion, intimacy, and romance that God intended. Reb Bradley

Marriage God's Way is a book that will greatly bless your marriage. Pastor Scott combines personal experience, pastoral care, and above all, clear teaching from Scripture to guide his readers into a proper understanding of what God intends for their marriage. In a world where marriage is often considered a hopeless attempt at fleeting happiness, a book like this will give the Christian couple biblical perspective, good counsel, and hope for their future together. If you are looking for help to restore your struggling marriage, or you just need a good reminder of why godly marriages work, this book provides sound guidance, and I highly recommend it to you.
