    Marriage as Covenant: Considering God's Design at Creation and the Contemporary Moral Consequences

    Today's Price £34.54



    Product Description

    Marriage as Covenant examines the nature and meaning of marriage as an order of creation. The book questions whether or not there is evidence in Genesis for believing God made marriage to be a covenant relationship; and if so, how does it affect the way one understands moral boundaries surrounding marriage? The book also questions what did God expect of Adam with respect to Eve, and what did he expect of Eve in relation to Adam? The book analyzes the covenant understanding of marriage in relation to feminist and homosexual attacks on the standards of sexual moral behavior taught in the church and reflected in the culture. Marriage as Covenant also reviews the state of the institution of marriage and how marriage is being attacked by American churches and various civil laws. The thesis guiding this research is that God, at creation, designed and established marriage as a covenant relationship, and that understanding the covenant nature of biblical marriage will shed light on the value and significance of the moral standards God says should govern the practice of human marriage.
