I Am With You - Year B - Scripture Reflections for Couples
An exciting new book of Scripture reflections for couples that aids listening to God and each other through reflections on the Bible.
This book, focusing on the question: what are these Readings saying to me or us about our relationship, offers those who believe in the power of prayer and the Word of God, a blessed resource that can speak right into the heart of their love for one another!
“I am more than happy to recommend this book which will be a most helpful resource to couples who are looking for a way to strengthen their relationship as husband and wife.... [it could] help them to focus the light of God’s Word on their relationship and help them to see the ‘extraordinary in the ordinary’ “.
Bishop John Hine, Responsible for Marriage & Family Life for the Bishops Conference of England & Wales.
“A truly wonderful and deeply thought provoking book that will be an excellent tool for those couples who pray together and want to link into the Sunday readings of the Catholic Church. Written and compiled by couples for couples…couples who obviously ‘practice what they preach’. Highly recommended; after all as it is said ‘those who pray together - stay together’ ”.
Geoff & Gina Poulter, Directors of the Catholic Bible School.
"Any resource promoting Christian marriage and family life is very welcome.
This appealing book combines simplicity with depth, and could be of great and lasting value to couples and families of any Christian tradition."
Tony Castle, Ecumenical Officer of the Diocese of Brentwood and writer.
Human love is God’s love in disguise. God is worshipped in the most ordinary and extraordinary moments of married life. All such moments are full of grace. But too often we fail to recognise God’s presence in each other. We forget the astonishing meaning of the Incarnation. Friendship, love and marriage are sacred because they call out our deepest and most authentic humanity - a humanity that is made in God’s image. Because of their hard but loving experiences, the authors of ‘I am with You’ write with a unique honesty. Each page offers wise ways of recovering, sustaining and increasing intimacy in marriage - unconditionally. And whatever resource values, purifies and deepens human loving, reveals, at the same time, something of the divine love that lives at the heart of every marriage.
