Book Review: The Gospel and Marriage

gospel for lifeThe Gospel for Life Series: The Gospel & Marriage by Russell Moore and Andrew Walker lays out a view of marriage as seen in Scripture, in culture, and in the church. The compilation of authors explore the beauty of marriage as laid out by God in the beginning of creation before the Fall and conclude with the dark contrast of the state of marriage (and lack thereof) in the United States today.

While the book does a good job of showing the gospel and its impact in marriage, at times it can feel like the authors are driving home a socio-political view talking about the state of marriage in this country. If the book focused more on how the beauty of the gospel as displayed in marriage through the church could declare the glory of God to the world around us which is going in the opposite direction, that would have made a more intriguing read at times.
