“Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that are ruining the vineyards . . .” Song of Solomon 2:15
Why are foxes on the cover of this premarital guide? Because every marriage has “foxes” lurking inside it! We all have idols and selfish appetites—and, like the foxes in Solomon’s vineyard, they can cause untold destruction and heartache. In fact, how seriously a couple takes their own foxes will influence whether their marriage blooms and glorifies God, or is a shallow and pale imitation of the real thing.
In this workbook for both individuals and groups, biblical counselor John Henderson stimulates meaningful conversation and prayer between engaged couples. The book’s interactive format provides couples with a foundation for understanding what marriage is really about, becoming a godly husband or wife, and understanding conflict and resolving it biblically.
Sit down together, ask a married couple to come alongside you, and get ready to chase the foxes out of your relationship.
“Self-centered views of compatibility, relational chemistry, and personal needs are too often the focus of preparation and counseling for marriage. Catching Foxes provides a Christ-focused, gospel-saturated alternative.”

OUR SOCIETY HAS CHANGED.
In our increasingly rootless culture, many people prefer questions over answers, hazy spirituality over concrete belief, and pluralism over the ultimate truth. Even some believers express this uncertainty—hesitant to assert that the gospel of Christ is the only true Good News.
Yet this bold assertion is exactly the witness that our world needs. Here seven notable pastor-scholars expose the limitations of postmodernism and remind us of our reasons for confidence. Are you prepared to take a stand alongside them?
