How Marriage Books Can Do More Harm Than Good

Dr. Greg Forster talks about how developing a theology of work affects our understanding of economics (0:10), and Matt and Lauren Chandler explain why marriage books sometimes cause more harm than good (5:24).

Take a closer look at the theology of work with Dr. Greg Forster

Explore why it’s important for us to understand our daily work as something intimately connected with our faith, and how this allows our faith to be a full-time way of life rather than something that we squeeze in for a few hours a week. Delve into how work is central to the image of God, and learn that all people are made to work together with each other as stewards of the world. Consider how the fall brought darkness, evil, and injustice into the world of work, and then look at how redemption and the Holy Spirit restore us to the image of God and empower us to persevere through toil and frustration in our work. Dig into the economic context of the changing global economy, and contrast our current world of work with what existed in biblical times.

In this Mobile Ed course, Dr. Forster walks through issues like poverty and justice and how we promote the dignity of all people, as well as how we can do our work in a way that brings life to our communities. He also looks at the role of work in how the church can fit into a pluralistic culture.

Refocus your marriage with Matt Chandler

The Song of Solomon offers strikingly candid—and timeless—insights on romance, dating, marriage, and sex. We need those insights because emotions rise and fall with a single glance, touch, kiss, or word. We’re inundated with songs, movies, and advice that contradict God’s design for love and intimacy.

Matt Chandler helps navigate these issues for both singles and married couples by revealing the process Solomon himself followed: attraction, courtship, marriage . . . even arguing. The Mingling of Souls will forever change how you view and approach love.
