What the Bible Says About Love and Marriage by David Jeremiah (book review)

With roughly a third of all marriages ending in divorce, there’s never been a better time for this refresher course in the true meaning of a successful union. As New York Times bestselling author Dr. David Jeremiah reminds us, it’s a biblical truth: Sex and passionate, romantic love are God’s ideas!

Nothing rivals the beauty of the writing in the Song of Solomon– and nothing rivals the wisdom of Solomon on matters of love, romance, marriage, and sexual intimacy. Dr. Jeremiah’s thoughtful interpretation of Solomon and Shulamith’s relationship provides all of us– whether married or single– with valuable lessons for a better, happier, more fulfilling life and a long, loving marriage.

My Thoughts

Most people want to have a strong, loving, all around awesome marriage, but let’s face it, marriages aren’t always that way. They can be full of pain, hurt, or simply become a bit lackluster as time goes on. If you want to have a good marriage, it’s going to take some work. I recently read a book, What the Bible Says About Love, Marriage, and Sex by Dr. David Jeremiah, that I found to be excellent for anyone longing for a happy, satisfying marriage, and you don’t have to be married to learn and benefit from this book either. What the Bible Says About Love, Marriage, and Sex is an excellent resource for those who are single and hoping to be married someday, couples who are dating, those who are engaged, newlyweds, marriages that are struggling, marriages that are doing well, and anything in between!

Dr. David Jeremiah, with the heart of a pastor and the wisdom of a man who has spent years studying the Bible, does the smartest thing possible when writing a book about marriage, he bases it on God’s Word. What the Bible Says About Love, Marriage, and Sex is very much like a Bible study through the book of Song of Solomon. It’s amazing how relevant the Bible is to marriage today, even though it was written thousands of years ago! It addresses the issues that marriages face every day, and Dr. David Jeremiah takes us through the Song of Solomon chapter by chapter, giving understanding and insight in practical, easy to understand terms.

What the Bible Says About Love, Marriage, and Sex covers so many important topics: dating, waiting for Mr. or Mrs. Right, navigating engagement, communicating to one another, showing love and affection, sex, rekindling a ‘blah’ marriage, the importance of romance, and so much more. You can see why this really is a book for more than just married couples!

My husband and I have been married for more than ten years, and we truly have a wonderful marriage, but it’s so good to take a refresher course every once in a while. It affirms you in the areas that you are doing well in and encourages you to work on the rough areas. What the Bible Says About Love, Marriage, and Sex has been like that for me. My husband and I also occasionally do premarital counseling or counsel couples who are struggling in their marriages, and this book would also be an excellent resource for marriage counselors, particularly premarital counseling.

A good marriage doesn’t just happen, so don’t wait! Start working on it now, married, engaged, dating, or single, see what the Bible has to say about marriage and start living it out. I promise you won’t regret it!
