The Knot: The Problems and Future of Marriage (with Dana Robert Hicks)

We look back with romantic marriage eyes on Biblical marriages which included multiple wives, shaming, and great concern over property.


Pastor Adam and Dr. Dana Robert Hicks discuss Dana’s book, “The Knot: How to Secure Healthy, Modern Relationships While Not Being Tied to Marriage’s Past.” After years in ministry, Dana wrote a book addressing the baggage marriage carries, the Disney happily ever after myth, and the trope of soulmates, while offering a hopeful view for healthy, modern relationships.

Dr. Dana Robert Hicks is an Amazon best-selling author and has contributed to more than five books and many articles that revolve around the themes of culture, change, church planting, and mission. Before his retirement from professional ministry, he was a church planter, pastor, professor, and leadership developer for over 30 years. Dana received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Northwest Nazarene University, the Master of Divinity degree from Nazarene Theological Seminary, and the Doctor of Ministry degree from the Beeson Pastor Doctoral Fellowship at Asbury Theological Seminary.

He currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona.

Keep up with Dana’s work at his blog, through Facebook, on Twitter, and Goodreads.
