Sacred marriage : what if God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy? by Gary Thomas( Book )

18 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Sacred Marriage' doesn't tell how to build a better marriage -- it shows how your marriage can help you deepen your relationship with God. From the practice of forgiveness, to the ecstasy of lovingmaking, to the history you and your spouse create together, everything about your marriage is filled with the potential for discovering and revealing Christ's character. Now with discussion questions for couples and small groups, this book may very well alter your marriage profoundly. It will most certainly change your. Because whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God"--Page 4 of cover

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Best selling author Gary Thomas helps us sharpen our spiritual vision and fortify our commitment by examining ten disciples God uses to forge a fire-tested faith. A biblical view of these disciples can safeguard us from disillusionment when-not if-difficulties surface in our lives. Sharing scriptural insights, the wisdom of Christians through the centuries, and cogent personal observations, Thomas explores the disciplines of selflessness, waiting, suffering, persecution, social mercy, forgiveness, mourning, contentment, sacrifice, hope and fear

Sacred parenting : how raising children shapes our souls by Gary Thomas( Book )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many books have been written about how to parent a child effectively, how to become a better parent, and how effective parenting produces better kids. But Sacred Parenting--the new book by Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Marriage--delves into an entirely different reality: how parenting affects the parent. It explores the spiritual dynamics of parenting, and why caring for children is such an effective discipline in shaping our souls and forming the character of Christ within us. Thomas doesn't tell parents how to handle a chronically sick or rebellious child, but he does help parents find spiritual meaning behind the almost heroic care such children require. Because Sacred Parenting is not a 'how to' book, it openly admits the difficulties, struggles, and failures that often accompany parenting. And it goes on to show how God uses those trying and discouraging times to build up the parents who experience them. Parents of all children will be encouraged by the examples of how other men and women have successfully handled the challenges and occasional defeats of parenting, and will be inspired by stories that reaffirm the spiritual value of being a parent"--Publisher description
