In Building an Orthodox Marriage, Bp John (Abdalah) and Nicholas G. Mamey offer a vision of marriage that is grounded in the teaching of the Church, as found in Scripture, tradition, and the marriage service itself. The authors first lay out the theological background, and then examine and explain the service of marriage itself.
This Workbook Companion, authored by Gregory J. Abdalah, serves as a helpful supplement to Building an Orthodox Marriage. It can be used by couples who are preparing for marriage, and by pastors and other church leaders who provide premarital counseling. The Workbook enables pastors and couples to get more out of Building an Orthodox Marriage, and helps them see more clearly how to apply the theological principles and teachings of the Church in the particular circumstances of their own lives.
