There are many threats to a marriage—but every reason for hope. You may be surprised to discover how many potential dangers can be identified and confronted even before the wedding takes place, and God’s gospel provides the means of overcoming them all.

Are you prepared for marriage? Using biblical counselor John Henderson’s interactive guide, you will gain understanding—understanding not only of spousal roles and marital conflict but also your own heart and the purpose of marriage itself. As understanding is established, you will learn how to handle conflict, glorify Christ in your union and finances, get a grip on your expectations, and address the sins that threaten your marriage.

Catching Foxes is appropriate for individual or group study and may also be worked through with a pastor, counselor, or mentor couple both before and after the wedding.
