About The Book

The Sacred Art of Marriage explores married life as an art studio with fifty-two tools to creatively craft your spiritual life together. Drawing upon the fourth chapter of The Rule of St. Benedict this book offers married couples fifty-two weeks of spiritual practices and ancient wisdom to deepen your marriage. Newlywed couples planning and preparing for married life will encounter in this book a variety of creative plans and patterns to put into practice including daily weekly seasonal and annual patterns of healthy married living. Journeying through a year of marriage readers move seasonally through this four-part book from Summer into Fall through Winter and around to Spring. In The Sacred Art of Marriage youll discover ancient wisdom and practical ways to deepen your spiritual life together across seasons as you grow together in Gods gift of marriage. In The Sacred Art of Marriage David has crafted something quite lovely. St. Benedicts fourth chapter on the Tools of Good Works was intended to shape our hearts into the heart of Christ through action. In simple short chapters he weaves a small section from RB 4 and Sacred Scripture with tales his own life experience to call couples to deepen the quality of their lives together. These are organized by the four seasons--a nice reminder that our relationships and commitments also have seasons. His simple exercises are practical. I recommend this for all but especially for those preparing for marriage or in the early days of your lives together. --Laura Swan OSB author of The Wisdom of the Beguines: The Forgotten Story of a Medieval Womens Movement David Robinson has a metaphorical mind and heart. His poetry combines with biblical theological pastoral and marital wisdom. This book displays all of these gifts and you will be the richer for reading it. --Mark Labberton President Fuller Theological Seminary David Robinson is author of Soul Mentoring: Discover the Ancient Art of Caring for Others (Cascade 2015); Ancient Paths: Discover Christian Formation the Benedictine Way (Paraclete 2010); and The Busy Familys Guide to Spirituality (Crossroad 2009).
