One of the most accessed pages on our website is a set of questions for couples preparing for marriage. Many have found John Piper’s way of asking the questions helpful in getting right at some pretty deep stuff – whether it's the typical questions or the ones far too many couples don't think to ask (like theology, worship and devotion, and the roles of husband and wife). Preparing for Marriage: Help for Christian Couples is a new ebook from Desiring God aimed at aiding couples – whether dating and considering marriage, or engaged and preparing for marriage – to get to know each other better in some of life’s most significant matters, and be more fit to discern God’s leading for their lives.
We've packaged three additional resources from John Piper with the marriage questions in hopes of enriching such important preparation.
