Our Best Selling Books on Marriage

married couple

Here at our headquarters in Bellingham, WA, the sun has just started poking out, tulips are blooming, and love, along with cotton, pollen, and many other allergens, is in the air.

Hello spring time.

Spring and summer are the most popular seasons for marriage in our part of the world and we thought it would be helpful to provide some resources for the couples, counselors, and pastors involved in pre-marital counseling.

We recently went through our entire library of marriage books, grouped them together, and ranked them based on their popularity in the past 15 months.

A few interesting notes:

  • Because buying a collection gives you the cheapest price-per-book, almost all of our collections outsell individual books.
  • We added many new individual titles in the past year which you may not have seen yet, such as Covenant Marriage by Gary Chapman and God on Sex by Daniel Akin.

We hope these books will be a source of wisdom and inspiration as you grow in your marriage and encourage new couples to grow in theirs.
