What You Need to Know Before You Say “I DO”
Christ-centered Pre-Marital counseling in a book!
God invented sex and romance. He formed covenant and companionship. He established headship and submission. He created marriage in all of its Christ-depicting, intimacy-building, joy-inducing, pleasure-producing glory. But people don’t just stumble upon a wonderful marriage, it takes lots of hard work and know-how. While a book cannot do the work for you, it can prepare your mind and heart for what’s coming. If you are engaged, or counseling two people who are, this book will help you build a biblical, Christ-honoring foundation for marriage.
Pastor Douglas Goodin has been learning and practicing the contents of this book with his wife Krista since 1992. He loves being married, teaching about marriage, and preparing men and women who are about to marry. This book is the culmination of many hours spent studying, praying, and counseling. You will not find here a sermon on paper. It teaches, but it also gets the prospective bride and groom talking to each other about the crucial matters of marriage.
Douglas Goodin enjoys living with his amazing wife in Colorado Springs, CO. When he is not chasing her around, he spends his time chasing his three kids and being the senior pastor of Front Range Alliance Church. He is also the founder and president of Cross to Crown Ministries and the New Covenant School of Theology. He is the author of Exalted: Putting Jesus in His Place. He blogs at www.crosstocrown.org.
