Bringing marriage to life through cooperative ministry initiatives
BOOK INITIATIVE - Theology of Marriage
The nature of marriage has changed more in the last century than any other epoch in human history. The dignity and definition of marriage faces increasing opposition from a culture fearful of making a distinction lest it appear to be a discrimination.
B2T has been partnering with John Trent of the Gary Chapman School of Marriage and Family at Moody Seminary. The initiatives have been bringing leaders in the marriage movement and seminary community together for months, laying the groundwork for a multi-disciplinary Theology of Marriage. This book will give the Christian community a place to stand—not to fight a new round of culture wars—but to demonstrate the beauty of God’s design for Marriage.

“A failure to think authentically about marriage is especially dangerous for the church; such a failure forces the church to look elsewhere to explain what marriage and sex means…” - from the book (Johnson and Clark)
This work is designed not to be a response to the culture, but a proactive call to God’s people to focus their energies on their own marriage and the marriages of those around them. Long before marriage was a judicial, political or social issue it was a theological issue. Right thinking proceeds personal and culture change.
Curt and Rhonda Hamner have created, led, refined, and partnered with dozens of organizations seeking to build healthy marriages within their spheres of influence.
In addition to their coaching, speaking, and writing efforts, they are available to churches, ministries, and other organizations facing a critical opportunity—or crossroad— in their marriage related ministry. They provide leadership mentoring, connections to other like-minded organizations, and workshops that will help your organization cast a strong and clear vision for strengthening marriages.
You’re not the first organization to try this, and you’re not alone. Reach out for feedback on your existing plan or to start fresh with partners who have been where you’re going.
