I really enjoyed this book. Lots of things to do with a strong biblical base. I would say this is one of the better marriage books I have read. More detailed than most. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to make their marriage stronger.
I'm not sure why this book caught my attention among all the other delicious things on the church library shelf. After all, I think Jeremy and I have a pretty good marriage. This book confirmed that for me, but it also reminded me that there are still things that I can and should do to be an even better wife. It also gave me a lot of good insight into how to help others whose marriages might not be so great. If you know anyone who is fighting to save his or her marriage, this is the book she/he [...]
I received this book as a wedding gift from a friend. The best chapters are the ones written on the five loves and how they look practically within a marriage. The chapters that covered those areas reminded me of The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis and The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman combined together. Chapters 5 - 11 in this book are the chapters I enjoyed most. Other parts of the book I did not fully agree with. I would have liked to see more emphasis on the sanctifying work of the Holy Spiri [...]
This book was a tool that God used to guide me through the heartache and restoration of my marriage. In the mists of a divorce, another woman, and the emotional fallout that is brought on by life's tragedies, my hope of recovery was slim and his was gone. Alone, without my spouse, I applied this books easy to follow instructions and dug in. I say "easy" in that the book is very clearly written, but in no way was the "applying" easy. Although it was the hardest 2 years of my life, the outcome cou [...]
Dr. Wheat does a fantastic job of taking his experience as a counselor and combining it with the age old wisdom of the Scripture to give married couples something to hope for. Those who are just starting out can begin with the knowledge and experience given to them by a wise counselor, and those who have found themselves in a rough patch can find some wonderful advice and hope to cling to in the pages of this book. Of course, as with any advice, you can't just read the book and hope everything w [...]
I bought this book as a joke gift for the long-distance boyfriend I had in college when I found it in a library book sale for 25 cents. It ended up being the only book I had with me when I flew home next, so I started reading it and I didn't end up giving it to him like I intended (which is good, because that relationship took an eventual nose-dive, and I ended up liking the book). Actually, I ended up liking the book so much that I read it again a second time later on-- which is a compliment, b [...]
I had read this book in the mid-90's and really liked it. Having such a selfish, post-modern mindset, it was a revelation to me then and I desperately need it to wake me up! While it has MUCH fabulous advice about love being a choice and details the kinds of love the Scriptures lay out for us and most of the marital counsel is wonderful, I threw this copy of the book in the trash when I was done re-reading it this morning. It had three flaws that I could not overlook, no matter how fantastic the [...]
I thought this was an excellent and useful book. I would have given it 5 stars except for a couple of points that I disagree with. I'm going to talk about those points below, but I want the main point of the review to be: this is a good and helpful book! It really gives one hope for marriages to be sources of joy and happiness.Now for the disagreements. Because he is a strict Christian he agrees with the idea that the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church. This is j [...]
I read this book for my Prayer and Share class at church. It covers many of the different aspects of marriage: spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental and how each one is a very important aspect to marriage. He also goes over the five different types of love in the Greek: Epithumia (strong desire), eros (romantic, passionatate, and sentimental), storge (love shared by parents and children or brothers and sisters) phileo (companionship, closeness, tender affection) and agape (unselfish love th [...]
This is a very good Christian marriage book but is not really for the non-christian. It provides lots of biblical evidence for God's plan for marriage and the practical behavior required from the husband and wife to make it work. What is truly mind-boggling to me is to really stop and think how counter-cultural true Christian marriage has become! Much of the "really good advice" out there on the market today; well-intended, highly educated advice, is just dead wrong. Something that used to be so [...]
I read this book just before getting married. My reaction as I read this book was "Wow. Marriage can be really good". The author paints a very attractive but also realistic picture of what a good marriage can be like. Unlike some books, this book isn't filled with with happy fairy-tale stories, but rather looks at the wonder and blessing of everyday intimacy. If you are looking for a "how to" book for marriage, there are better books. That's not to say that this book doesn't have good and practi [...]
This is a must read for newly married couples, or for any married couple in a good or bad marriage. ***Both partners should read the book together, as a couple.***** Nowe reason I can't give it more stars is because it does get wordy at times, and some of the chapters are too long. I have yet to get through this book. Sometimes, it seems like he already said the same exact thing in a previous chapter, but in just a slightly different way. I feel like the book could have been more compressed.
My wife and I are reading this book together as part of a marriage group we joined. It was amazing, I can truly say that this marriage group and the text we read saved our marriage. Whether you're reading it alone or with your partner it is a great book. Gives lots of biblical examples for how to treat your partner and work out issues. It really rekindled the romance in our marriage. Just an incredible book.
There is a lot of good information in this book on how to really love your spouse and therefore improve your marriage. It's so much easier to read about/talk about agape love than it is to actually to put into practice! I was really challenged to love my husband without expecting the same treatment in return. I love the idea that every day is a new one, and that my marriage can always be improved.
I read the 1980 copy of this book and find some of the writing a bit dated. Of course, Biblical principles are unchanging, but the stories and examples given didn't really hit home. The retelling of the Song of Solomon was just strange to me. I enjoyed the retelling of Hosea. There are definitely some good points made in the book that I will work on in my marriage.
I recommend this book to all the married people I know. If you are hurting you need to read this book. If you don't like your husband or wife you need to read this book. If you never loved you husband or wife to begin with, you need to read this book. If you are happily married, you need to read this book. You will be encouraged and spurred on no matter where you find yourself.
Wheat helps you to improve your marriage through sharing, touching, appreciating, and focus healing attention on your mate. He answers physical, psychological, and stress related questions in a Christian context. He helps demonstrate how to bring your feelings of love back to life. I really enjoyed this book
Don't read this book if you are looking for earth-shattering exegetical insights. Still, there are some helpful nuggets of wisdom here from a Christian marriage therapist who has counseled hundreds of couples. The chapters on sexual intimacy and how to save your marriage alone were unlike anything I have ever read before.
This is quite possibly the best marriage book I have ever read. I just finished it but kind of want to start reading it again just to keep the ideas fresh in my mind. It is based on Scripture and contains great practical advice.
The is quite possibly the best book on marriage ever. Want a satisfying marriage? Read this book. Having some struggles? Read this book. Want to save your marriage, even if your partner isn't interested? Read this book! It is solid from one end to the other.
Horrible Horrible Horrible. This book could be a textbook on logical fallacies unstated and unproven assumptions. This is the only how-to book on the planet where the author doesn't even bother to claim that his advice resulted in success for the couples he counseled. Pure torture to read.
We got these during our engagement and they were such a great resource that I bought copies of them for several of my also newly engaged friends. We chose them after a little research of so many other marriage resource books.
My husband & I are reading this book together - one chapter a week. I highly recommend married couples read this book - perhaps every year! This book helps you stick together - what God has joined together, let nothing separate.
This is the best, most complete, thoughtful and Biblically-based marriage book we have read. In waiting to discuss it with Josh, I read several of the chapters twice and think I would benefit in continuing to do so!
Should be on the top shelf in every married couple's library! Read and re-read
Was a really good read for all couple in trouble or not
If I ever finish this book it'll be a miracle!
One of THE very best books on marriage I've ever read.
Certain chapters make this a good book. Some of it is hard to take.
