BOOK: MARRIAGE THE BIBLE WAY

Check Out Pastor’s Book on Marriage

Marriage: The Bible Way deals with the realities of everyday challenges in the lives of the married, the unmarried and the family.  It brings to you an enlightenment of God’s Word in problems which would otherwise result in the breakdown of the family.  You will learn what God’s Word says about marriage, the roles of each party, and the ingredients of a happy marriage in every sense of the word! This book can bring not just healing but a good and healthy perspective on marriage. Great for counseling.
