The Pursuit of Pleasure in the Pleasure of Another
Xulon Press, 2007 - 312 pages
A JOYFUL, HOPE-FILLED MARRIAGE! "Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth, a lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love" (Proverbs 5:18-19). Is your marriage blessed, joyful, delightful, intoxicating? That's how God wants it to be. God has provided everything husbands and wives need to experience this kind of intimacy and bring Him glory at the same time. This book shows how a passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ is the fountain that sustains a God-glorifying, enjoyable and durable marriage. "Looking for fresh insights on the joy and glory of marriage as God intended? Then this book is for you. Pastor Darby brings excellent biblical scholarship and thoughtful, practical, wholesome ideas for improving your marriage relationship. None of that syrupy stuff with no real substance, but wise counsel from God's Word challenging couples to experience God's best as He designed it to be." Stephen Davis, Executive Director, State Convention of Baptists in Indiana Darby Livingston is the founding pastor and a counselor at Come As You Are Fellowship in Union City, Ohio. He is also co-founder of Joyful Hope Ministries, a cell-church planting ministry. Darby is happily married to Amanda and they have five young children.
