Preparing For Marriage

Scott Brown
In Stock


  • How are young people to arrive safely at the marriage altar? This book captures some of the premarital counsel which John Calvin gave to the youth and families of Geneva. It draws from two categories of Calvin’s writings, bringing up interesting and helpful counsel for young people and their families in order to help them navigate the single years and enter successfully into marriage. First, statements have been taken from his commentaries and sermons on matters relating to this formative time of a young person’s life. Second, many of the statements presented here come from Marriage Ordinance of 1546, which outlines various difficult issues that most singles need to face before they get married.
