Life group on marriage

We began a marriage-focused life group last week that will be using Dave Harvey's book When Sinners Say "I Do". I have begun re-reading the book and will be sharing some quotes from the book.

Early on in the book, Harvey expresses his belief that theology is and underlying yet governing aspect of our marriages. He quotes R. C. Sproul in this chapter, writing,
No Christian can avoid theology. Every Christian is a theologian [... ] the issue for Christians is not whether we are going to be theologians but whether we are going to be good theologians or bad ones.
He proceeds with his argument:
How a husband and wife build their marriage day-by-day and year-by-yearn is fundamentally shaped by their theology. It governs how you think, what you say, and how you act. Your theology governs your entire life. And it determines how you live in your marriage. (21)
What a great way to start a book on marriage.
