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.

If you're looking for something to read on marriage, whether alone as a husband or a wife, as a single person preparing for marriage, or as a couple reading together, I think that this devotion would be a great choice for you. Rather than seeking out modern wisdom on marriage, you're turning back to 2,000 years of church history and gaining wisdom and insight from two millennia of Christian thinkers.

With that historical focus, coupled with the short nature of the devotions (2 pages each), I believe that this will be a great resource to any man or woman, single or married, to gain a better understanding of what a biblical marriage looks like, and what it means for marriage to be "held in honor by all" (Heb. 13:4).

Zack Ford, Youth Pastor at Grace Bible Church, Mountain City, Georgia

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.
