New from Plummer & Haste: Held in Honor: Wisdom for Your Marriage from Voices of the Past

Gavin MacKenzie

Held in Honor
Held in Honor
Are you ever disappointed in your spouse? Do you fight? Do you disagree about money, sex, or in-laws? What if the very struggles you are facing were addressed by thoughtful Christians hundreds of years ago?

In Held in Honor, you will find 50 devotional reflections on marriage carefully selected from 2,000 years of church history. Alongside each inspiring historical quote is a brief introduction to the person quoted and an accompanying biblical reflection.

You are not alone in your marriage. The Lord has provided encouragement, correction, and hope in his Word. Held in Honor aims to strengthen you by pointing you to the promises of God's Word and by showing you how past generations have applied this life-giving message to their own marriages.

Praise for Held in Honor:

"... a wonderful resource for Christians as they seek to live out their marriages in a way that glorifies God and exalts the Gospel."

-R. Albert Mohler, President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

"... Theologically informative and instructive and yet devotional in approach, it makes a fine contribution to contemporary Christian reflection on a most important institution."

-Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Historical Theology and Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"As a woman engaged to be married for the first time (in my mid-50s), who loves classic Christian writings and devotional literature, I have found this book to be a treasure trove. A sweet and timely source of wisdom as I seek to honor Christ in a new season and station of life."

-Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Author, Revive Our Hearts & radio host, Niles, Michigan
