Sewell was inspired by the conversation Jesus had with the Pharisees regarding marriage in Matthew chapter 19.  Even back in that time, people were not investing fully into their marriages, and Sewell sees the same today. The people back then were very devoted in their marriages, but not so today, the author noted. He wants to counter the lies and deceit in popular culture with biblical teaching and the prayer life necessary to sustain a healthy marriage.


The appalling state of the institution of marriage motivates me to ask why this God-ordained family structure is being degraded on so many levels. It was not always so and when we look at the marriages in the beginning, we learn a lot about this holy covenant,said Sewell.
