Marriage God’s Way: A Biblical Recipe for Healthy, Joyful, Christ-Centered Relationships is an inspiring and enlightening book written by Scott La Pierre.

In addition to the Introduction, the book has eight eye-opening parts divided into chapters that explain the roles the husband and the wife play in a happy Christ-centered marriage. The author begins by stressing that marriage is a reflection of Christ and the church, that our relationship with our spouses is the reflection of our relationship with God, therefore, our marriage problems are symptoms of our problems in our relationship with God. 

Using verses from the Scripture, the author explicates various marriage issues including the headship of the husband, what submission means and does not mean, what is more important to a husband and to a wife, and intimacy in marriage. 

Moreover, the book expounds on various biblical terms such as ‘a helper comparable’ to man, the weaker vessel, and the virtuous wife. Furthermore, it explains, among others, the results of Adam and Eve’s disobedience which, supposedly, was the beginning of the Battle of the Sexes that birthed feminism, and the four Greek words for love: eros (physical love), storge (natural love), phileo (strong affection) and agape (superior love), 

First and foremost, this, for me, is a great and wonderful book that offers a formula for a perfect or at least an ideal marriage. It sheds light to some very common but very important marital issues like why some women tend to be controlling of their husbands and why there are passive and spineless men who succumb to their wives’ leadership. Moreover, it clarifies that ‘making money outside of the house’ is actually part of being a virtuous wife. Furthermore, the book offers helpful suggestions including keeping the marriage in the marriage except when seeking godly counsel.

The part of the book I like most is the chapter that deals with ‘the wife’s nagging and the husband’s stubbornness.’ I find it very relatable. What I find the most important is the chapter that explains ‘a woman’s greater beauty.’ 

Needless to say I enjoyed this book immensely and I can’t imagine getting tired of it even if I read it every single day. However, it took me quite a while to read the entire book but not because it is not an easy read, because it, in fact, is, but because I internalize it as much as I can. Moreover, this book will be more appreciated by readers who are knowledgeable in the Scriptures. Furthermore, this book may not be an ideal read for LGBTQ which limits the potential readership. Finally, as I already mentioned, the book offers a formula for an ideal marriage, but only if both of the spouses read it, take it to heart and put it into practice. 

I, therefore, rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. It is inspiring and enlightening. I recommend it not only to married people but also to those who are planning to get married be it any time soon or in the distant future.
