Why did I read this? I have read it eleven times and had planned to read it every year.  I had packed up most of my books and hadn’t read it for four years.  I bought a new copy of the book so that I could mark it up.

Gary Thomas uses scripture, classic Christian literature to show how marriage is designed to draw us closer to God and in drawing closer to him can draw us closer to our spouse.  I am reminded of things that I had learned and reflecting on the new things I learned from reading this time.  I am impressed by the ability of this book to continually impress new things on me each time I read it.
