The Christian Minister's Affectionate Advice to a Married Couple
James Bean and Henry Venn

The American Tract Society published this small work in 1820 which was intended to be given as a gift to the newly married and to older married couples as well. It contains a wealth of "affectionate advice" from the heart of a Christian minister who spent his life seeking to "present every man (and woman) complete in Christ."

This small book also includes a beautiful letter from the pen and heart of Rev. Henry Venn, author of "The Complete Duty of Man" which he wrote in 1777 to his newly married cousin. This ten page letter demonstrates the seriousness with which the marriage union was treated in a former day.

TO HAVE AND TO HOLD would make the perfect gift for every married couple, but especially those who are newlyweds, or who are considering and/or pursuing marriage.

" Bean's 'Advice to a new -married couple;' is a work, which has obtained great celebrity in Great Britain, and which deserves a place in the library of every christian family. The book is, indeed, but little known on this side of the water; but the extract on Evander and Theodosia (from Chapter Five) will give no unfavourable impression of its merits, both as it regards the sentiments it contains, and the manner in which those sentiments are delivered. We cannot too earnestly recommend the present performance to the perusal of every one who wishes to form a just estimate of the duties belonging to the married state." - The Missionary Magazine, by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the USA in 1806

"This useful little work, from the pen of a highly respectable English clergyman, has passed through six editions in England, and one large edition in this country. This second American edition is respectfully recommended to the clergy of all denominations, as a valuable and unexceptionable present to young heads of families." - Advertisement in front of this American edition from 1824
