"A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart." (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, NAS)
In a day when Biblical marriage is under significant attack here is a timely opportunity to follow the love stories of those who served in public positions such as soldiers; martyrs, and pastors through the letters they wrote to their loved ones. Their letters illustrate that marriage is not just about the husband and wife; there is another strand which is absolutely vital. Marriage is a gift from God and a most important factor in the strength of that marriage is the love we have for the giver of that gift. In A Cord of Three Strands, you will be inspired by the letters of:
• Thomas J. and Mary Anna Jackson
• John and Margaret Winthrop
• Henry Martyn and Lydia Grenfell
• Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Maria von Wedemeyer
• Christopher and Margaret Love
• John and Mary Newton
• Charles and Susannah Spurgeon
Their love letters will encourage you to stick close to Christ and reinforce the importance of having Him as the third strand in your relationship with your husband, wife, fiancée or fiance, particularly in the face of life-threatening adversity!
