Staying on Track Mar 20, 2006
This is a well written, informative book on the biblical view of what a marriage can be if the couple is willing to work together to benefit the other. I found it challenging me to be a better spouse and to learn to live the companionship marriage. I would recommend this book to every couple who wants to enjoy their later years together.
Praise for Second Half Aug 25, 2000
I read this book when it first came out some time ago and wrote a very strong recommendation for the book for the publisher to use. It's an excellent book. It's well written, flowing, and well targeted at the issues that affect couples moving into the second half of life together. If you are moving into that time of life or know someone who is, I highly recommend this book.

The Second Half IS Better! Jan 5, 2000
The Arps must have been secretly watching our home when they wrote this book. Their comments on the changes in relationships and priorities were right on the mark. My wife and I have applied several of their "challenges" and the positive difference has been very noticeable. I enjoyed the book so much, it's become the background for a popular class I teach to "empty nesters" in our church.
If your "nest" is empty now, or will be in the near future, you owe it to yourself and your marriage to read "The Second Half of Marriage". I doubt there is a better book on the subject available today.
