For a Glory and a Covering:
A Practical Theology of Marriage

"Lord, here am I. Change him."

Subjects such as headship, submission and forgiveness are explained with sound doctrine, not merely opinion. Wilson states: The chief end of marriage is the same as the chief end of man-to glorify God and enjoy Him for... More details
