Today, we begin a brand new month, and that means it’s Giveaway Day here on the blog. Not too long back, I told you about a soon-to-be-published marriage book that would be worth buying. What Did You Expect? Redeeming the Realities of Marriage by Paul David Tripp is now available. And as it turns out, one of you won’t need to buy the book, because I’m going to give it away today. Whether you’re married, preparing to marry, hoping to marry one day, or planning to help others with their marriages, Tripp’s newest book promises to be a beneficial read.
From Crossway Books:
Marriage, according to Scripture, will always involve two flawed people living with each other in a fallen world. Yet, in pastor Paul Tripp’s professional experience, the majority of couples enter marriage with unrealistic expectations, leaving them unprepared for the day-to-day realities of married life.
This unique book introduces a biblical and practical approach to those realities that is rooted in God’s faithfulness and Scripture’s teaching on sin and grace. “Spouses need to be reconciled to each other and to God on a daily basis,” Tripp declares. “Since we’re always sinners married to sinners, reconciliation isn’t just the right response in moments of failure. It must be the lifestyle of any healthy marriage.”
