No Ordinary Marriage: Together for God's Glory

By Tim Savage

... Show All

One of the greatest social tragedies of our day is the underperformance of marriage—not only marriages that end in divorce, but also those which, while remaining “intact,” become painfully strained and emotionally scarred. Surely there must be hope for something better, for something more.

With profound insight and vivid illustrations, pastor and marriage counselor Tim Savage helps us to realize the unlimited potential of marriage—to discover how the glory of God can infuse our relationships, increase our joy, and make us bright lights in a troubled world.

No Ordinary Marriage is an extraordinary book. What makes this work stand out in an overcrowded marketplace of ‘how to’ books is its compelling vision of marriage for the glory of God. I know of few books on marriage that combine elegant writing, sound doctrine, clear illustrations, and practical advice in equal measure. This is a book on marriage made in heaven. No one, or couple, who reads this book will look at marriage in an ordinary way again.”
Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Research Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

“This is no ordinary book on marriage. Dr. Tim Savage clears away the rubble and shows you the treasure that can make any marriage rich: a life lived for the glory of God. Embrace the message of this book and it will transform your marriage, your family, and your entire life.”
Colin Smith, Senior Pastor, The Orchard, Arlington Heights, Illinois; Founder and Bible Teacher, Open the Bible

“Being a speaker and writer on marriage, I have read dozens of books on marriage, and No Ordinary Marriage is by far the best. Dr. Tim Savage moves his readers beyond a manual of do's and don'ts into the realm of 'being' in a marriage for the glory of God. A must read for one and all.”
Naomi Rhode, Certified Speaking Professional; Former President, National Speakers Association; recipient, Council of Peers Award for Excellence, Speaker Hall of Fame; author, The Gift of Family

No Ordinary Marriage explains how a marriage is intended to glorify God. Dr. Tim Savage writes not in a spirit of condemnation, but rather of encouragement as he paints a picture of what marriage is really meant to be. In reading this book, Sheryl—my wife of nearly 36 years—and I found ourselves challenged and inspired to rely on God as the core of our marriage. We pray that the Lord will inspire Tim to write his next book—How To Survive Hormonal Teenagers!”
