A daily devotional for couples based on The Meaning of Marriage
Pastor and New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller, along with his wife Kathy, write a new daily devotional drawing on their bestselling The Meaning of Marriage.
Tim and Kathy Keller's bestseller The Meaning of Marriage looked at the human need for love and its expression in marriage. This new devotional, drawing on that book but consisting of all-new material, is a day-by-day devotional to help couples find God's wisdom as they navigate the complexities of married life.
Each day includes a quotation from Scripture, a comment from the Kellers, and a prayer to help you ground your married life in God. Covering friendship and commitment, the completion of men and women in each other, and ministry and discipleship within the context of marriage, alongside many other themes, this is a profound resource to help you connect God's wisdom with your marriage.

My wife and I have been using this devotional together for the past three years. We've been working through one devotional text per week, as opposed to daily. We're about halfway through the book. As with any book on a specific topic, we're mistaken when we think that reading it will answer all our questions and solve all our problems. By God's grace, my wife and I have found this book to be a great help in fostering honest and constructive communication between us. The Introduction suggests a variety of ways that the book can be used. The main devotional material elaborates on passages and themes derived from 'The Meaning of Marriage', also by the Kellers, and a book that I'd highly recommend reading before or alongside this devotional.
As this is a year long daily devotional, we are only at the start of it. It’s thought provoking and a useful tool, but has (to me) a very different feel to Keller’s devotional books on the Psalms and Proverbs. Would like to reserve further judgement until later in the year!
