Fresh Ideas Mar 6, 2010
I've probably read every book written on marriage from a Christian perspective so was surprised to find new insights on the subject. The author is no doubt a Christian and he uses some Biblical resources but the book presents only psychological and practical issues; it does not offer an analysis of Scriptural principles. That's not to say his premises or conclusions are incorrect. On the contrary they are thought provoking and worthy of further study. I would recommend this book to any married couple - in light of the epidemic of adultery in today's Christian culture it would make an excellent wedding gift.
Fascinating read that has many good points Feb 27, 2009
Did you ever wonder what cause an affair? This book goes over many reasons why one would have an affair, why a person is attracted to someone, and in what times individuals are the most likely to have an affair. Just knowing these these facts can make us all more aware of what to look for, and how to avoid having an affair.
There are times when we as individuals are more likely to have an affair than other times. When we are under stress through work, financial, relationship reasons, and others, we look for relief, we look for support. What gives us more instant gratification other than affair? There is little that gives someone a surge than an illicit affair.
I highly recommend reading this book. You may be married, you may even be involved with a married person. Affairs hurt everyone involved, the people directly involved, and all those touched by the affair. An amazing read, and I highly recommend picking this book up.
Enjoyed the radio interview... Dec 12, 2008
A very informative read. I heard a two day interview with the author on a Christian radio station and was very motivated to find the book and learn more. I want my marriage to be ALL it can be; ALL God wants it to be. If you've ever had an affair or thought of having one...PLEASE read this and help heal yourself.
