Derek Prince's Paean to Marriage Nov 3, 2006
In God is A Matchmaker, the late Derek Prince wrote not only his most famous book, but one that provides encouragement and comfort to those looking for and ultimately waiting for God to provide a mate.
Prince details his two marriages and the poignant journey leading up to both. This book will not be loved or liked by those who possess politically correct viewpoints on marriage, and it won't provide comfort to those who don't believe in God. But to people who love the Lord, and who seek His provision, this book can help to give them the assurance that God can do anything if we believe and trust in Him.
God Is A Matchmaker is a thoroughly engaging, entertaining, and informative book.
Hmmmm ... Jun 22, 2006
Many women in churches are single and this is a source of unhappiness and frustration. Derek Prince was married at 30 for 30 years. He was then single for a whole 3 years before meeting his second wife (Ruth) and, after her death was single for 5 years before his own death at the age of 88.
Fine if he wants to offer advice to married people because he has shedloads of experience of marriage. But his experience of singleness is pretty sketchy, as far as I can see.
And as for Ruth Prince's suggestions about a teapot ...
Ladies--Read This Book--There Is Only One Matchmaker (and it's not you!) Apr 29, 2006
For some reason, there has been an increase of divorced women in the church who believe they must bring singles together for matrimony. They seem to think that their own experiences have provided them with "wisdom" in this area (question: how does sin equip and qualify one for ministry?).
Well, this wonderful book by Derek Prince points the right way for all believers for this most important decision of their lives. It is God Himself who brings couples together for His own will and glory. The chapters on practical preparation for marriage are crucial. It's a pity that more folks fail to receive such quality counseling before marriage, and instead listen to the gurus of "christian" psychology (or the local Minervas in their midst).
Excellent marriage reference material Oct 24, 2005
This book helps to gain an understanding of both husband and wife roles in marriage accordinding to God's plan. It's easy to read as a companion to the Bible and does a great job of referencing scripture. Great for parents, pastors, teachers, family, and anyone preparing for marriage.
Worthy of Your Purchase Sep 17, 2003
This book can be summarized in the author's "7 Biblical Principles Involved in Entering in a Marriage:"
1. God Himself initiated marriage at the beginning of history. 2. The decision that man was to be married proceeded from God, not man. 3. God knew the kind of helper that man needed. Man did not. 4. God prepared the woman for the man. 5. God presented the woman to the man. The man did not have to go in search for her. 6. God ordained the nature of their life together. 7. Jesus upheld God's original plan of marriage as binding on all who would be His disciples.
The standard God has for marriage is high but not unattainable.
I appreciate that the author used "Biblical" principles. This written material proves that he is in fact a Bible scholar. Based on this book, I will purchase additional materials from this author.
