In recent decades, the application of biblical principles that generate marital joy and happiness has diminished. Younger generations at large have aligned their marriages more with the precepts of the world than of Christ, leaving couples unfulfilled and unhappy. Steadily, the holistic nature of the art of married love has been lost as to being the fabric of Christian marriages.
In The Pursuit of Marriage Oneness: the Key to Marital Success, Dr. Wilson unveils the key to marriage fulfillment: understanding and walking in marital Oneness. Organized into three parts, he first examines the field of knowledge on Oneness in marriage from a unique, faith-based perspective. Second, The Pursuit of Marriage Oneness offers an in-depth discourse on the synergy of the three facets of marital love from the Song of Songs, making practical applications from Scripture, clinical experience, and empirical research. And third, it discusses organizational and interactional aspects of covenant marriage with coherent and functional pathways to marital joy, happiness, and enduring success.
As a Pastoral Counselor and Marriage and Family Life Coach, Dr. Wilson spent years compiling summary records that consistently showcased the needs of his clients and the successful interventions in their marriages. He felt the need to be a part of a movement for marital reformation by introducing an ancient yet fresh and exciting Christian perspective to marriage satisfaction: Oneness, the essential meaning of marriage. This book invites couples on a journey with a clear and refreshing pathway in pursuing marital joy and happiness as One.
