Publishers Description
Meditate on the Spiritual Significance of Marriage
In the 20th Anniversary Edition of this Gold Medallion Award winner, Mike Mason goes on a poetic search to understand the wondrous dynamics of committed love. In highly readable, first-person style, Mason's writing stimulates readers' thoughts and prayers and propels couples to deeper intimacy. "A marriage is not a joining of two worlds," says the author, "but an abandoning of two worlds in order that one new one might be formed." Rich chapters on "Otherness," "Vows," "Intimacy," "Sex," "Submission," and an all-new chapter on "Oneness" lift readers to view the eternal, spiritual nature of this faith-filled, "impossible," wild--yet wonderful--frontier.
"An outstanding achievement. Rarely has a book aroused in me so much enthusiasm as has the combination of wisdom, depth, dignity, and glow that I find in these chapters."
-J.I. Packer
"Absolutely exquisite. It reaches down deep into our innermost being, revealing, revitalizing, rewarding. A real classic."
-Gigi Graham Tchividjian
"A drop everything book. Mason deals with the stunning paradoxes of the mystery, the problems, and the glories of marriage. I don't need to read any other book on the subject."
-Elisabeth Elliot
Story Behind the Book
"Over the twenty years since its publication, many couples have told me that they've read my book aloud to each other. This always amazes me and gives me great joy. I'm also amazed that many single people have read it. Either way, my goal is for hearts to be warmed by the mystery of divine love. I want couples to enter into deeper intimacy by thinking together about the "mystery of marriage"--about how their love, besides being a gift of God, reflects the very love He has for Himself in the Trinity. For God is not a bachelor, and throughout the Bible marriage is a supreme picture of the nature of God's love and of His kingdom. I want people who read my book to feel so soaked in these wonderful, divine mysteries that it deepens their reverence for marriage and inspires them to greater love."
-Mike Mason

Best Book On Marriage  Sep 16, 2008
I have given so many copies of this book to friends and children of friends. If you know someone who is getting married or having trouble in their marriage, please do them a favor and pick up a copy of this book for them. Sound Christian principals on love and relationship and the true meaning of two people becoming one in Christ.
Beautiful.   May 7, 2008
This book is a beautiful look at what marriage is and how God created it. It is refreshing to read and stays away from the how to and just focuses on the glorious yet mysterious miracle of marriage. Loved it and give it away to all new brides and grooms I know.
Truly amazing  Apr 29, 2008
Although this book is not a quick read, if you are willing to take the time to sit down with it, it will open your eyes and knock your socks off! To truly understand the reason and meaning of marriage in God's eyes has been a tremendous blessing to my marriage. Highly recommend this book!
powerful  Aug 28, 2007
this book was recommended by a friend since then, i've recommended this book and given this book away as gifts to my friends getting married, thinking about marriage, or already married. it's not just about marriage, but the way a man and woman should live and can live happily in Christ
The mystery of Christ revealed in marriage  Jul 1, 2007
My wife's background is in clinical psychology/marriage counseling. She has read many books on marriage and this is her favorite. I have been counseling couples and young singles concerning relationships for about 10 years -- it is my favorite as well. I've never read anything quite like it. It's a true synthesis of practical how-to and biblical Christian spirituality. This book is a REAL Christian book (as opposed to much of the seeker-sensitive pseudo-Christian stuff out there) and will not appeal to non-Christians (or to luke-warm "Christians") because at the center of this work, page after page, you will find Jesus. If you are not devoted to Jesus, then what Mike Mason says will not work for you.

THE MYSTERY OF MARRIAGE is a radical call to every Christian to give themselves completely to the call of Love, and is communicated in a poetic, powerful and unique way that will resonate in the lives of Christian couples for the rest of their lives.
