For far too long Christians have carried on as though marriage is merely a sentimental, sappy photo op—all about cute flower girls and the perfect bridal dress—and now we find ourselves backed into a cultural corner of thoroughgoing perversion and confusion on every side. Christian marriage has always been an act of war, but now it has become far more obvious. The dominant theme of the twenty-five messages in this book is a plea, a charge to embrace the warfare of Christian marriage.
Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but it is a struggle, one that requires great faith. But we are not fighting a losing war. Jesus died and rose again. We are fighting a winning war. Our King reigns in heaven. And He has sent us out into the world to make disciples of every nation—teaching them to obey everything Jesus has commanded. And some of the central commands have to do with embracing our callings to be male and female, to leave and cleave, to love and obey, to be fruitful and multiply, as we fill this world with the beauty and glory of the gospel which is at the heart of Christian marriage – which is necessarily a militant marriage.
