This isn't your typical book on the topic of marriage. It provides no 'hints and tips' for maintaining a healthy marriage, but offers an indepth theological study of marriage and is a must read for every pastor and lay speaker whether directly involved with married couples or not. Christopher Ash's book is timely to say the least. The problem with many books on topics such as this is that they aim to provide proof texts to support a certain argument. Even if the Bible knowledge is strong, the theology is often weak. The books where the theology is strong are often far too academic for the average reader. This book, while not simple, is very readable for the average lay person, but manages to explain complex theology simply. Ash has been heavilty influenced by Oliver O'Donavan and this is clear throughout. While many would look for simplistic answers, Ash seeks to tease out what the Bible is saying as a whole through the lense of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This book is thorough and will give any reader a great overview of what the Bible says about marriage. As the title suggests, the big picture of marriage is about partnership in service of others, whether that be your spouse, children, other marrieds or singles. This is a profound truth. Far from being inward looking, marriage is a vital part of God's community, seeking to serve rather than be served. As Ash teases this out we see God's great design of marriage as a truly beautiful thing.
