Raymond C. Ortlund Jr. Marriage & the Mystery of the Gospel.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, October 31, 2016.  128 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

This is a great book on a biblical theology of marriage.  It is part of Crossway’s Short Studies in Biblical Theology Series.  So far in this series this is my favorite work thus far.  Don’t let the size of this book fool you; it is packed with a lot of insightful gems from Scripture in each page.  I actually spent a longer time reading this book as I was taking notes than some books on marriages that has more pages than this work.  The publisher Crossway definitely picked the right guy to write this volume since the author Raymond Ortlund has previously written an excellent chapter exegetically examining what Genesis has to teach us about marriage for the massive work Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.  If you want a beautiful portrait of what a biblical view of marriage is, in its sacredness and dignity, get this book.
