Worshipper Warrior

Most men want to be wholehearted—at least in theory. But the twenty-first-century male is anything but zealous and full of life. He is the child of the Sexual Revolution, a demasculinized culture, and, quite frankly, a church where he doesn’t fit. Boutique spirituality and religious posturing has produced a plastic, insecure Christian man who knows nothing of the bloody, wholehearted passion of a man like David. We need Davids. 

David is the original wholehearted man! He is, quite frankly, one of the most dangerous men in the Bible. The only character in it called “a man after God’s own heart,” David is raw, gritty, and fully human. In David, we see a man of a rough-edged masculinity who is growing to love God through the actuality of His presence in earthy human conditions. In David, more than any other, we see the deep interior of a soul on fire and passionate about God. He is the type of man with the type of heart that God is raising up today.  

The God-Wild Marriage

A God-wild marriage doesn’t begin with your spouse. it begins with God! In The God-Wild Marriage, Author and Pastor Steve Holt describes God’s design for marriage, practically showing you how it should work. Instead of a life of low expectations, he shows you that God is wildly excited about marriage—especially your marriage.

God’s design makes marriage—your marriage—His main vehicle for you and your spouse to experience His dangerous, extravagant love, forgiveness, and power. God has destined your marriage to be the place where His power and holiness are revealed.

With humor and practical advice, Steve shows you that when we follow God’s design, we experience the unpredictable, overcoming, and joyful life He wants for us. The God-Wild Marriage is a roadmap through Ephesians 5:18-33, the Bible’s most dangerous passage on marriage. Steve helps you tackle the thorny issues of marriage.
