Ministry Today – Serving and empowering church leaders

Dr. Doug Weiss is all about healing—devoting his life to healing the sexually broken. Through his work as a counselor and clinical psychologist as well as his many books, public speaking and numerous media appearances, Dr. Weiss has been able to help rescue thousands from sex addictions and other problems—with an 85 percent success rate.

Because he's really healing marriage, it was natural that I invited Dr. Weiss to be the guest editor of the November-December issue of Ministry Today, with the theme of strengthening marriage. We refer to Dr. Weiss as "The Marriage Doctor" in the issue—which is now available—because he's putting lives back together and affecting the very fabric of our society at a time when it seems everything is trying to tear it apart..

You can read Dr. Weiss' "The Miracle of Marriage" cover story, in which he shows how helping build strong marriages begins with recognizing their unique place in God's creation.

Dr. Weiss is challenging our very concept of what Christian marriage is. I heard his teaching "The miracle of marriage" a year ago for the first time. He says the concept of "one man, one woman" is incomplete. Marriage was really God's last creation on earth. And He created marriage as a trinity—between Himself, and the husband and wife. This is a revolutionary concept we must begin to take hold of. To me, it's the most important message of the issue.
