A Parable of Permanence
The chasm between the biblical vision of marriage and the common human conception is—and has always been—gargantuan. In This Momentary Marriage: A Parable of Permanence, John Piper reflects on over forty years of matrimony, exalting the biblical meaning of marriage over its emotion and exhorting couples to keep their covenant as a display of Christ’s covenant-keeping love for the church.
He aims to lift the church’s low view of marriage to something infinitely greater, namely, a vision of Jesus’s unswerving allegiance to and affection for his bride. This Momentary Marriage unpacks the biblical vision, its unexpected contours, and its weighty implications for married, single, divorced, and remarried alike. Now available in paperback with a freshly redesigned cover, Piper’s book on marriage holds even greater appeal.
