In the twenty-fourth chapter of Genesis a beautiful young woman offers assistance to a weary traveler and his camels, and out of that simple action, a marriage results-a marriage that offers profound lessons to couples today. Bible scholar and renowned speaker Ravi Zacharias draws five points critical to the long-lasting success of every marriage from the biblical story of the marriage of Isaac and Rebekah.
"Real love folds together both the emotions and the will," writes Zacharias. "Without the emotions, marriage is a drudgery; without the will, it is a mockery." Building upon that foundational truth, Zacharias goes on to explain the principles of seeking the counsel of others when finding a mate, cherishing your partner, remaining pure, becoming a man or woman of prayer, and, finally, risking everything in a relationship in order to experience God's ideal for love.
Couples everywhere, from those about to be married, to those who have been married for decades, will draw strength and wisdom for the journey of marriage as they learn from Ravi what it means to move from romance to lasting love.

Their global outreach grew from humble roots in 1984 and includes fielding a team of itinerant speakers who operate from offices located around the world including the U.S., the UK, Romania, the Middle East, India, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Canada. The Hallmark of Ravis heart is his strong evangelistic and apologetic that manifests itself from a position of compassion.

Diana Oudin5 Stars Out Of 5October 11, 2008Diana OudinThis is an excellent book on marriage. I would recommend it to every couple. It is a very encouraging reminder of Godly principles.
Don5 Stars Out Of 5September 26, 2008DonWonderful book about a subject that has many volumes on the subject. As always Ravi Zacharias does not disappoint. Bringing his own life into to the story helps understand the culture of the east better and I love how his brother was married without ever meeting the girl. The fact that marriage is work no matter who you are married to is a good reminder to those who come to this union with little to no preparation for the life ahead. Buy it, read it and give it to someone else!
