Description
 
Why isn’t our marriage as fulfilling as I’d hoped? Where did we take a wrong turn? Did I marry the wrong person? Many couples have pondered questions like these. But what if God has different plans for marriage than you ever imagined? Join Tim and Anne Evans as they explore a revolutionary perspective of what marriage can be – by going back to the beginning.

In Eden, a married couple was created to reflect and reveal the oneness and plurality in God’s Trinitarian nature. A man and woman, both made in the image of God and both given the procreation and dominion mandates. Together –naked and without shame – they enjoyed co-leadership.
Together: Reclaiming Co-Leadership in Marriage explores many questions that swirl around the miracle and mystery of “two becoming one,” including:

  • What is God’s purpose for marriage?
  • Can couples return to God’s original marriage principles?
  • What about equality, headship, submission, and authority?
  • How should love, respect, and roles play out in marriage?
  • What does reclaiming co-leadership look like?

There isn’t a couple in the world I would rather hear talk on marriage than Tim and Anne Evans. Once you come into their home, the first thing you notice is the savory aroma of two people who not only are in love but have stayed in love. It’s home cooking at its best. And it’s so good you have to have the recipe. At last, they have put the recipe in print. Enjoy!
Ken Gire, author of Windows of the Soul and Intimate Moments with the Savior
