A Distinctively Christian Model for Marriage Dec 3, 2006
I highly recommend this book for engaged couples, married couples, and pastoral care workers. I also recommend it for textbook reading in colleges and seminaries. Jack and Judith Balswick pour their gifts, experiences, energy, wisdom, knowledge, and hearts into this accessible but rich work on married life. The Balswick's are egalitarian in their view of marriage but that shouldn't stop complementarians from reading this valuable resource. I enthusiastically recommend the book because of the thoughtful integration of social sciences, theology, and their own marital journey. I believe both egalitarians and complementarians will benefit from reading this monograph. Their vision of marriage being grounded in light of trinitarian relationships provides significant relational depth and differentiation from a uniquely Christian perspective.
