Meditate on the Spiritual Significance of Marriage <br><br>In the 20th Anniversary Edition of this Gold Medallion Award winner, Mike Mason goes on a poetic search to understand the wondrous dynamics of committed love. In highly readable, first-person style, Mason&rsquo;s writing stimulates readers&rsquo; thoughts and prayers and propels couples to deeper intimacy. &#8220;A marriage is not a joining of two worlds, &#8221; says the author, &#8220;but an abandoning of two worlds in order that one new one might be formed.&#8221; Rich chapters on &#8220;Otherness, &#8221; &#8220;Vows, &#8221; &#8220;Intimacy, &#8221; &#8220;Sex, &#8221; &#8220;Submission, &#8221; and an all-new chapter on &#8220;Oneness&#8221; lift readers to view the eternal, spiritual nature of this faith-filled, &#8220;impossible, &#8221; wild&mdash;yet wonderful&mdash;frontier. <br><br><b><i>&#8220;The two shall become flesh. </i></b> <br><br><b><i>This is a great mystery.&#8221; </i></b> <br><br>Ephesians 5: 31-32 <br><br>Beautifully written and filled with life-transforming insights, the 20th anniversary edition of Mike Mason&rsquo;s unparalleled Gold Medallion winner explores the mystical and holy nature of marriage with a depth that will forever alter how a couple relates to each other&mdash;and to God. <br><br><u>PULL OUT </u> <br><br><i>The Mystery of Marriage</i> stands out from how-to manuals on marriage as a refreshing how-come book&mdash;a brilliantcelebration of the God-ordained union between man and wife. <br><br>&#8220;An outstanding achievement. Rarely has a book aroused in me so much enthusiasm as has the combination of wisdom, depth, dignity, and glow that I find in these chapters.&#8221; <br><br>J.I. Packer <br><br>&#8220;Absolutely exquisite. It reaches down deep into our innermost being, revealing, revitalizing, rewarding. A real classic.&#8221; <br><br>Gigi Graham Tchividjian <br><br>&#8220;A drop everything book. Mason deals with the stunning paradoxes of the mystery, the problems, and the glories of marriage. I don&rsquo;t need to read any other book on the subject.&#8221; <br><br>Elisabeth Elliot <br><br><b>Story Behind the Book</b><br><br>&#8220;Over the twenty years since its publication, many couples have told me that they&rsquo;ve read my book aloud to each other. This always amazes me and gives me great joy. I&rsquo;m also amazed that many single people have read it. Either way, my goal is for hearts to be warmed by the mystery of divine love. I want couples to enter into deeper intimacy by thinking together about the <i>mystery of marriage</i>&mdash;about how their love, besides being a gift of God, reflects the very love He has for Himself in the Trinity. For God is not a bachelor, and throughout the Bible marriage is a supreme picture of the nature of God&rsquo;s love and of His kingdom. I want people who read my book to feel so soaked in these wonderful, divine mysteries that it deepens their reverence for marriage and inspires them to greaterlove.&#8221;
