Tormented Couples: Helping When The Pursuit Of Biblical Marriage Goes Wrong
This PDF edition is not written for couples but is intended to be a resource for those who are working with premarital and married couples within a Christian context.
Couples preparing for marriage within a church, and married couples who are church members, are often encouraged to understand and apply the Biblical guidelines that are considered to be part of that local church’s statement of faith and preferred ethos. This book centres on problems that often occur as couples attempt to understand and apply these guidelines in their own relationships.
Concepts contained in various Biblical guidelines may become conflated and distorted. They can be held and applied in conflicting ways between partners. They can become undermined. They can be in competition with existing cultural values. This book provides some practical strategies relevant to these issues.
The aim is to complement and supplement the books and programs preferred by Christian marriage educators. Particular reference is made throughout to the relevance of the PREPARE/ENRICH program and resources.
