Description


At its best, marriage brings joys and blessings rarely seen in this life. At its worst, marriage generates pain and conflict, often because husbands and wives do not fully understand their roles and responsibilities.

Wouldn’t it be great if husbands and wives had access to clear, simple instructions on how to have a wonderful marriage? Such instructions exist! As the author of marriage, God placed the recipe in His Word that shows husbands and wives how to experience the marital blessings available to every couple. Whether you are preparing for your wedding, newlyweds, or marriage veterans, you will learn those instructions in Marriage God’s Way.

Pastor Scott offers a clear guide on the Bible’s view of marriage. He explains:

  • Scripture’s commands for husbands and wives
  • Godly love and how to show it
  • Submission and headship
  • Biblical intimacy
  • How to build your marriage on an indestructible foundation

Scott LaPierre combines clear teaching from Scripture with practical application for daily married life to encourage, challenge, and equip you to experience a healthy, joyful, Christ-centered relationship.

    Pastor Scott beautifully writes about the Biblical view of marriage, saying that God has placed the man as the head/spiritual leader and that the wife is to be submissive to that leadership. But, this book is far different from other books with the same message.

    Pastor Scott expounds on the message of Biblical roles by referencing Scripture and giving the literal meaning behind the words in the original language. For example, he discusses the differences between agape and phileo love, shows references in Scripture to these types of love, and helps spouses understand how to apply the Scriptural concepts to their spouse. Drawing on research from Dr. Eggerichs (Love and Respect), he teaches practical ways for husbands to love their wives and for wives to respect their husbands.

    As a wife, what I loved most about Pastor Scott’s book, is his ability to speak about submission in a way that doesn’t feel “less than” in the marriage. He even points out that the word used for wives as “helpers” is the same word used to describe the Holy Spirit’s role in helping Christians. What a beautiful way to capture God’s unique design for both husband and wife. Husbands can be encouraged by this book as well, because Pastor Scott helps husbands understand how to lead in a way that will honor God and help their wives feel loved.

    Read this book! You’re sure to get some insight and encouragement from it.

    Scott’s book “Marriage God’s Way” has changed lives and marriages for the better. Not only does his book give guidance on how to live out a marriage, his own marriage is a living example to others.

    Scott is a busy man with many projects on his plate. But he has always, ALWAYS, taken time to invest into others. An excellent man with character and drive. An honor to know him.

    • Hi Joshua,
      Thank you my friend. I still remember your encouragement very early on in the writing process. Your counsel was invaluable!

    Marriage God’s Way by Pastor Scott LaPierre is a fantastic book.

    Scott has done a great job at approaching the topic of marriage from a perspective that is both Biblical and pastoral. The book is deeply rooted in scripture, and draws on God’s design for marriage as the standard from which any discussion should flow. However, it is not merely an exposition of Biblical truth. The book is written in a personal and practical tone that helps to answer the “Yes, but how?” questions that so many couples have. Marriage God’s Way is great evidence that Scott is a pastor with a genuine shepherd’s heart. Not at all “Holier than Thou”, this is a book written by someone who has walked the path of building a stronger, more faithful and loving marriage.

    As a pastor myself, I often have the privilege of investing in couples who are seeking to build a love for God and each other. Marriage God’s Way has earned a place on the shelf in my study as one of the resources I’ll turn to again and again. It’s also a book I plan to use with every couple who I provide pastoral counseling.

    I would be remiss if I did not mention that there is now a companion workbook available to go along with the main text (Marriage God’s Way Workbook: A Biblical Recipe for Healthy, Joyful, Christ-Centered Relationships). I’ve ordered a number of these workbooks, and cannot wait to receive them and start using them in my ministry.

    In closing, whether you’ve been married for decades, or you’re just beginning the journey towards marriage, this is an excellent book that I wholeheartedly recommend. It’s a refreshing and encouraging read!

    • Len,
      I appreciate your friendship and ministry. Thank you for reading and reviewing Marriage God’s Way!

    Purchased this book for my wife and I to read through and savor. We have been reading it a chapter at a time together. It has been wonderful to experience God’s grace for our marriage through Scott’s book. I have read other books on marriage and this one is far superior. Scott’s unyielding allegiance to what scripture says on marriage is taught with humility, love, and gentleness. Nevertheless, his book is unapologetic in its assertion that Marriage can only be done God’s way and any other will not do. This book is the best in its category.

    • Shawn,
      Thank you my friend for the kind words!

    Very good book, it clearly demonstrates what the Bible says about marriage. Easy to read with profoundly simple ideas, Marriage God’s Way is a book anyone doing Christian Counseling should read. Pastor Scott quotes the Bible but also explains it in a way that is easy to understand. Part of his explanation of 1 Peter 3:1 is “husbands seem to struggle with stubbornness even more when they feel they are being nagged, and wives seem to struggle with nagging even more when they feel their husbands are being stubborn.”

    I loved the part about submission where he says “submission means a wife sees herself as a part of her husband’s team”, I also appreciated the emphasis on that the Bible says a woman is only supposed to submit to her own husband, not all men.

    My favorite quote “A husband’s love and a wife’s submission is not a test of their obedience to their spouse. It is a test of their obedience to the Lord.”

    This is a great book for anyone that wants to understand what the Bible says about Marriage. But it also clearly points out why what the Bible says actually works!

    • Mike,
      Thank you my friend for all your help in so many ways. I’m so glad I won your website services at the silent auction :).

    As an Amazon author and a practicing husband for 37 years, I found Pastor Scott’s book fascinating on multiple levels:
    First, it has a lot of scripture…which means truth. We need infusions of truth to overcome the lies society confronts us with constantly.
    Second, Pastor Scott is passionate about biblical marriage and transparent about his own deficiencies in the past…including a marriage-killing internet addiction he had. NOTE TO READERS: we’re not talking about the addiction the Kirk Cameron character had in “Fireproof.”
    Finally, he gives solid teaching on topics many pastors are fearful to touch: authority, submission, and the role of the Holy Spirit in the believer’s marriage, to name a few.
    LaPierre goes deep with both men & women, and is not afraid to compel us to action so that the only divorce we face is the divorcing of habitual and destructive thoughts, words, and actions.
    Marriage God’s Way goes beyond “don’t do bad things,” to “do these helpful things.”
    It’s a “must give” for young newlyweds…to get started on the right foundation. Also for couples in turmoil, so they can rebuild on a sound footing and with clear roles.

    • David,
      you’ve been a great encouragement and advisor through the whole publishing process. Thank you for everything!

    I met a young man recently (a neighbor) that told me, NONE of his friends had a father present in their lives (because of divorce)!
    Broke my heart!

    Marriage God’s Way is a masterpiece of wisdom re marriage folks! He’s put the best practices into print and kept it simple.
    Mr La Pierre makes the case that traditional marriage is the foundation of a properly functioning society- as God designed it (vs blowing with the wind of change)! We get this right or nothing works! Turn on the news or ask your neighbors, when the sanctity and honor is stripped from marriage, things get real dark in a hurry!
    Check it out, it’s must read- married or single! (quick and easy reading too)
    Thank you Pastor and well done faithful servant!

    • Steve,
      Thank you for the review!

    A part of me didn’t want to give it an “I love it” review, not because it doesn’t deserve all 5 stars because it does, but simply because it is challenging me in my marriage in a very good way! Most people wouldn’t say “I love being challenged”. Change is hard, improving can be difficult, but it is always worth it. So if you are hoping to read something that is not going to make you want to be better, then don’t read this! If, however, you are looking for something that is really going to help you approach your relationship with your spouse in a whole new way, and make you better, then buy it!

    I felt like it was very well written, and easy to read. I didn’t ever feel lost or confused, and I am not a big reader so that was really good for me. I also really liked the fact that there really wasn’t a ton of personal opinions. More just expounding on what God says in His word about marriage, wives and husbands. Breaking down the scriptures, within the context, and helping spell it out for me was really good

    • Sister,
      You’ve been a great support regarding my book, ministry, and simply life in general. I’m thankful God is letting us raise our families near each other!

    Marriage God’s Way by Scott LaPierre was a very informative and enlightening book. I can see that the Pastor Scott has really put a lot of thought and prayer into the contents of this book. From beginning to end the Biblical platform presented in a historical way that really could help a lot of marriages. Both encouraging and challenging for both the husband and wife, I wish I had something like this when my wife and I first got married, it would have been a huge asset to our marriage when we were just starting out. Having something like this easy read would have made our journey together so far even better.

    As someone who went through marriage counseling before I was married and as someone who has offered counsel to others since getting married, I still found some very good insight into how I should view my wife. The mixture of personal experience with professional and biblical experience captured my attention more than most other books I’ve read. I intend to keep reading through it until I’ve captured every enlightening aspect in my own marriage. Pastor Scott LaPierre truly has a passion for reaching others for Christ and being a Biblical example of Marriage God’s Way that all men should aspire to be.

    Making a marriage work is a team effort and many of us lose sight of that along the way. Pastor Scott mentions in the first few chapters of this book that God comes first, A spouse should come directly after that and everything else follows. I really like that philosophy and feel the it is the aspect that really makes marriages survive even the hardest of moments.

    Don’t take my word for it though, check it out for yourselves.

    I started quoting this book in conversation before I had even finished reading it!

    I recommend this book because:

    It’s full of scripture

    The title tells you exactly what you’re getting with this book; it’s Bible-based and Christ-centered. I don’t remember another marriage book I’ve read that has included so much scripture. It’s woven into every page. That is one of the things I loved most about this book! Even if I was challenged by what I was reading, I couldn’t argue with it because it was clearly based in God’s word. If you’re like me, you can almost recite the verses in the Bible about marriage. We’ve heard them, read them, and read whole books about them. But Scott dives into the Hebrew and Greek words and shows how the same words are used in other parts of scripture. It deepened my understanding of those verses dramatically.

    It gets right to the point

    From page 1, I knew that reading this book was going to change me.

    It’s relatable

    Scott shares examples (and not just good ones!) from his own marriage. It adds credibility to this whole thing to know that there are real people trying, and sometimes failing, to live out marriage the way God designed. But that it’s possible to succeed!

    It’s challenging

    If you’re never challenged, you never grow. And what good is a stagnant life? I always want to be growing more like Christ. This book was convicting in several areas and has prompted me to deal with some things in my own heart. I’ve never known a woman who doesn’t struggle slightly with the idea of submission. This book does a great job dealing with the topic and even gives husbands ideas on how to make it easier for us. It also shares other examples of submission in the Bible and from our culture that show that submission is not weakness. But it is how God designed marriage to work. So since God is good, and His ways are perfect, we should do what He says. (I know this, but that doesn’t always make it easy to do!)

    Conclusion

    I highly recommend this book. If you want to improve your marriage, I believe this book is a great place to start!

    • Steven,
      Thank you for the encouraging words. I have appreciated your support. I hope anyone who reads your review here also reads the Marriage God’s Way review on your site.

    “Marriage God’s Way” is a must read for veteran married couples and newlyweds alike. Pastor Scott handles a myriad of important but touchy issues with sensitivity and love without ever compromising the truth of God’s Word.

    From cover to cover, “Marriage God’s Way” is both encouraging and convicting for husbands and wives. Pastor Scott begins by drawing a correlation between our marriages and our relationship with Christ. With this as a foundation, he proceeds to cover the essential elements of a Godly marriage: headship and leadership, submitting and helping, love and respect. Pastor Scott guides the reader through clear and concise word studies (easy to read!) of these fundamental truths, and he draws out and illustrates the lessons using examples from years of marital counseling. He highlights the practical effects when walking in disobedience/obedience to these principles. Too often, when we read marriage books we focus on what our spouse should be doing. Pastor Scott skillfully keeps us focused on what Christ has done for us and how that should affect our interactions with our spouse. The final chapters discuss obedience. It is all well and good to understand and know the commands regarding marriage, it is quite another to obey them. This book WILL challenge you in marriage, but it will also strengthen and grow your marriage, leading you to a deeper understanding of God’s vision for marriage and how you can achieve it.

    I highly recommend this book for church libraries, marriage counselors, small group bible studies (men, women, or couples) and even young adults, as well as anyone who is in any stage of marriage or marital preparation. I suggest buying multiple copies to give out as the Lord leads. I believe this to be an invaluable resource for mature Christians, new believers, and those who are seeking to know God’s plan for marriage. I consider “Marriage God’s Way” by Pastor Scott LaPierre to be on par with “Love & Respect” by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs or “The Meaning of Marriage” by Tim Keller.

    • Kate,
      Thank your for the encouraging words. I’m blessed by everything God has done in your life since we were in college together :).

    I found Marriage God’s Way to be easy to read, insightful, and enjoyable. I like how the book is laid out, and I’ve cried, laughed in a few spots, and said, “Amen!” throughout. I had a hard time putting it down. It even interfered with some of my other responsibilities like chores around the house. I enjoyed how Pastor Scott used himself and his family to show people that even pastors and their families have problems like the rest of us. I loved how humble he was throughout the book. Not many would be that honest. He has verses to back up everything he says, and I think Marriage God’s Way will help lots of couples!

    • Thank you Kandie. You’ve been a blessing to me regarding my book and workbook.

    This book is like no other; I am so blessed to have read this!! Marriage Gods Way has saved my marriage and I think this should be in every home and in every church. I have read several marriage books and done is like this one; this is directions straight from the Bible. I will never be able to show my appreciation for this book and the wisdom I gained from reading it. Praying abundant blessings and mercy on the LaPierre family for their dedication and servantude to God and reaching out to people.

    • Thank you Kaitlyn! My prayer has been that Marriage God’s Way would strengthen marriages and exalt Christ, so your words truly bless me.

      God bless you and your marriage!
