Overview SUBTITLE: Marriage as It's Meant to Be. Building a strong marriage is tough. Yet the Bible is packed with principles on nurturing an intimate, rewarding relationship. Marriage as it was created to be means understanding God's plan for unconditional love.
In Each for the Other, Bryan Chapell and his wife, Kathy, offer an in-depth discussion of biblical truths you can apply to your marriage starting today. Together, they teach you:
* how denying yourself can create the most rewarding relationship ever * what biblical headship and submission really mean--and why they're important * six key building blocks to help solidify your marriage and family
Whether you're engaged, newly married, or in a seasoned relationship, Each for the Other offers indispensable truths on how to sacrificially love your partner. It also includes discussion questions--perfect for individual or couple study.
Publishers Description Marriage requires not just love, but sacrificial love, says Bryan Chapell. In his newly revised and updated book, Each for the Other, he shows married couples how to emulate the unselfish, sacrificial love of Christ. While imparting invaluable instruction grounded in Scripture, Chapell not only helps husbands and wives understand the nature of God's care but also affirms the importance of building a spiritual foundation that binds them together as one. By presenting a biblical model of marriage, Chapell encourages couples to dive into the deeper dimensions of their relationship. The result, he says, is a Christ-centered marriage and a grace-filled family. Refreshing and honest, Each for the Other is a perfect guide to show spouses, engaged couples, and marriage counselors what marriage is meant to be.

Reviews - What do customers think about Each for the Other: Marriage as It's Meant to Be?
Approve Mar 10, 2007
The book is very benefitial. My fiance and I are getting married next weekend, and the chaplain that is marrying us, suggested this book for the both of us to read. It helps keep into perspective the way you are to treat your spouse. Somewhat repetitive at times, but overall, I think it is a great book.
Excellent Book Mar 8, 2007
We love this book and often give it as an engagement or bridal shower gift.
Condescending Feb 7, 2007
Has anyone mentioned to the author that women actually have important jobs outside the home and that most of us can carry on an intelligent conversation with our husband's about business??? He tries very hard to explain headship and submission, however, his "real life" examples seem to come out of the 1950's.
This book is an insult to women and the spouses who love them.
We both thought is was great Nov 3, 2006
My fiancee and I had to read this book as part of our pre-martial classes at our church. We both thought it was a great book. Some points may have been a little redundant but overall, the book really showed us how to have a God-honoring marriage. I would highly recommend it to any couple preparing for the covenant of marriage.
Great Book for Each Other Dec 21, 2003
I just recently borrowed this one from a friend. Excellent book! I wish Chapell came out with this book earlier! I agree with the other reviews that he does a great job of clearing the air on the topic of submission and respect for women. Also he makes an excellent point on both spouses allowing each other to use their gifts to have a godly and "sucessful" marriage. It was good to see that he did have the same "12 step" approach that most marriage books have. Also good is his chapters on authority of the government and parental authority. This would be a great book for any couple, newly weds (even engaged) to older couples.
