****The Mystery of Marriage
As Iron Sharpens Iron
by Mike Mason
Reviewed January 1, 2003.
Multnomah Press, Portland, OR, 1985. 185 pages.
I got this book eight or ten years ago, on the recommendation of
my sister. This is a Christian meditation on marriage. I turned
to it as my sixteenth wedding anniversary approaches simply as a reminder
of the wonder of marriage. It never hurts to be reminded that bearing
with the foibles and annoyances of ones spouse reaps infinite rewards
in the end.
This book is poetic, talking about the spiritual principles that
marriage illustrates and simply reminding us of the miracle that marriage
ever works at all. It’s beautifully written and makes an inspiring
book. Perfect for newlyweds and old married couples alike.
A good reminder when a marriage is rocky that it’s worth sticking with
it, and when a marriage is going great of how blessed you are.
