Marriage and the Mystery of the Gospel by Raymond C. Ortlund Jr and published by Crossway Books.
“This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.”
—Ephesians 5:32. Marriage reveals something of eternal significance. From the beginning, God designed marriage to convey a greater reality—the passionate, unfailing, redeeming love of God for sinners, the eternal romance between Christ and his bride. In this volume, Ray Ortlund traces marriage throughout Scripture—from the first marriage in the garden of Eden to the ultimate marriage in the book of Revelation—laying out a transcendent vision of marriage that dignifies our own imperfect unions as a display of the gospel. This book offers insight and hope to every married person today.
