This is the inspiring and convicting account of three eighteenth-century Christian leaders (John Wesley, George Whitefield & Jonathan Edwards), all of whom were passionate about glorifying God by serving Him in their generation. They left an enduring and fruitful legacy through their labours, and they were also married. How they balanced (or did not balance) their passion for ministry with being married is the subject of this book.
This book tells more than just the story of three couples it gives us contemporary lessons too, offering Biblical guidelines and counsel from modern day Christian leaders. Many couples today struggle with how God views the relationship between family and ministry. This book gleans insights from these examples and gives biblical guidelines and counsel from some modern day Christian leaders too. What is the legacy you are leaving in your marriage and ministry? Do you want the answers to these questions: Which comes first? Family or public ministry? What happens if a wife senses God's leading in a different direction to her husband? What are the Biblical responsibilities of a husband and father? A wife's response to difficulties in ministry? How should a godly man treat women other than his wife?
