Marriage - Restoring our vision
By David Robertson
"Not another book about marriage" I thought on receiving MARRIAGE - Restoring Our Vision by David Robertson, a vicar and Bible teacher from Yorkshire. However, I soon found that his approach to the subject is refreshingly different from the many guides now available on "How to do marriage". He starts by going back to the basics of what the Bible tells us are God's purposes for marriage, then applies these to present day situations, challenging many of our current attitudes and practices, both secular and Christian.
As well as looking at conventional married relationships, the author tackles the thorny issues of cohabitation, divorce and remarriage, giving some thought provoking insights. As a man who was, himself, divorced many years ago after a long marriage, he brings a touching personal perspective to the topic.
Books of this type can often be dry and heavy going but David Robertson uses metaphor and flashes of humour to make this an entertaining and enlightening read, which I recommend to anyone, whether single, married or divorced, wanting to know about God's intentions in joining man and women together in matrimony.
