Publisher's Summary

How would you describe the spiritual aroma of your home? The source of this aroma is the relationship between husband and wife. Many can fake an attempt at keeping God's standards in some external way. What we cannot fake is the resulting, distinctive aroma of pleasure to God.

Reforming Marriage does what few books on marriage do today: it provides biblical advice. Whether it has to do with respect and love, confession of sin, sexual fidelity, or even the gnarly issues of divorce and remarriage, Douglas Wilson points to the need for obedient hearts on the part of both husbands and wives.

This audiobook is part of the Canon Press series of books on the family, which has helped many people trying to deal with the on-the-ground messes that come with sinners living under the same roof. Godly marriages proceed from obedient hearts, and the greatest desire of an obedient heart is the glory of God.

An amazing explanation of Biblical marriage

Wilson doesn’t shy away from using culturally challenging words. He gives much good council for having a marriage that reflects Christ and the church

Love your Wife

Every man whether married or not should read this book. So often we as men abdicate our rightful place as leaders in our home to our spouses. This book teaches how to take it back and be the spiritual leaders we husbands and fathers need to be.

fantastic! but...

The book is fantastic and would highly recommend. however, the audio quality leaves something to be desired but does not, by any means, make it unintelligible.

Sooo Goood!!!

I just listened to it, and I think I’m going to listen to it again. Plus I have now bought the book so that I can go back and look at the pages. I think he might’ve just punched me in the mouth... in a good way of course.

This book deserves a better recording.

A vital and classic read, but a less than amazing recording. Wilson offers a boldly countercultural and scripturally rich understanding of the marriage relationship. If you can listen to the whole thing muffled through a blanket, you'll love this.
