Father Josiah Trenham
In an age unmoored and adrift from any solid and unchanging vision for marriage itself, these lectures prove timely and are designed to root deeply within listeners a patristic vision for marriage. It is this expansive and glorious vision, articulated in the Scriptures and by the Church Fathers, that is to inspire the practical and every-day outworking of Christian marriage and family life. The God-ordained purposes of marriage are fixed, and for God-fearing Christians keep marriage from becoming a wax-nose manipulated and deformed by debased cultures and secular elites.
