What is the purpose of marriage? Some say that it is solely to procreate and replenish the earth. If this is truly so, the deeper meaning of marriage becomes lost— and the highest form of human organization is reduced to nothing more than copulation and reproduction. Author David Goddard expounds on this in his insightful book, In The Midst.
In the pages of this enlightening read, Goddard presents a new perspective on this tradition of the ages with the objective of engendering a paradigm shift that will encourage introspection, reflection, and foster a better understanding of marriage. When two people marry, their coming together is intentional, purposeful, and deliberate. It is a journey nonetheless that begins with each individual and consummates with the manifestation of “God in the midst,” which is the desired and ultimate experience.
Marriage is a sacred union characterized by midstness and individuality, which in a divinely mysterious way, find coexistence with each other. In this sacred place, midstness, there is oneness, closeness, togetherness, and a sense of security that is gratifying. Individuality meanwhile beckons one to engage life and its possibilities, breeding excitement, curiosity, and interest, for even though a couple is divinely connected, they are separate. Readers can learn more about midstness and why they must seek it as they immerse In The Midst.
