The Act Of Marriage (Paperback)Tim Lahaye & Beverly Lahaye
God intended the act of marriage to be the most sublime experience two people could share on earth.
“The act of marriage is that beautiful, intimate relationship shared by a husband and wife in the privacy of their love – and it is sacred. In a real sense God designed them for that relationship.”
With these words authors Tim and Beverly LaHaye begin a frank, in-depth, and biblical discussion of lovemaking for married couples. The LaHayes offer principles, goals, guidelines, charts, and research results to help you achieve a satisfying marital relationship with the emphasis on God and His most important role in an enjoyable, edifying sexual relationship.
The Act of Marriage does not skirt the real issues of a sexual relationship as many Christian marriage books do. It is deliberately frank, yet sensitively balanced in its clear and detailed presentation of the intimate relationship that exists between a husband and a wife.
Also available in Afrikaans under the title Die huweliksdaad.

The Sanctity of Sex
The act of marriage is that beautiful and intimate relationship
shared uniquely by a husband and wife in the privacy of their love—and
it is sacred. In a real sense, God designed them for that relationship.
Proof that it is a sacred experience appears in God’s first com-
mandment to humankind: “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill
the earth and subdue it” (Gen. 1:28). That charge was given before
sin entered the world; therefore lovemaking and procreation were
ordained and enjoyed while the man and the woman continued in
their original state of innocence.
This necessarily includes the strong and beautiful mating urge
a husband and wife feel for each other. Doubtless Adam and Eve felt
that urge in the Garden of Eden, just as God intended, and although
we lack any written report for proof, it is reasonable to conclude that
Adam and Eve made love before sin entered the garden (see Gen.
The idea that God designed our sex organs for our enjoyment
comes almost as a surprise to some people. But Dr. Henry Brandt, a
Christian psychologist, reminds us, “God created all parts of the
