Reviews - What do customers think about Good News For Married Lovers: A Scriptural Path For Marriage Renewal?
An excellent resource . . . Jul 31, 2007
. . . for couples who want to renew their marriages!
As both a married man, and as someone involved in family ministry, I heartily endorse this book!
This book, if taken seriously, can help couples in all states of their marital relationships to renew their lives and enrich their relationships with their spouses. Originally written for a Catholic audience, this book is equally appropriate for Christians of other faith communities -- and honestly, many of the principles espoused (and the good ideas) would also be applicable for those of other faiths as well.
Main Categories include:
*Growing in Grace #What is Love? #You are Love, My Dear #Do I Love You Enough? #Welcome Home, Beloved
*Reconciliation and Healing #How Delighted is Your Life? #We are Instruments of His Love #Beloved, I Belong to You #I No Longer Deserve to Be Called Your Spouse
*Empowerment #My Talent is Loving You #We Are One, Dear
*Scriptural Marriage #Enfleshed in Love #I Am Here, Beloved, to Give You Life
While this book can be used to help heal marital hurts -- it can just as easily be used to strengthen and support already good marriages. Honestly, one of the best books of its kind I've encountered.
A personal and a professional Top Recommendation.
A Must -Read for Everyone Aug 8, 2004
As a way to keep our 10 yr. marriage healthy and on track, my husband and I have annually read a book or attended a workshop focused on marriage improvement. Never before have we come across a tool that has made more of an impact than this book. Even though its focus is on making its readers better marriage partners, implementing its suggestions will make you a better lover of everyone and encourage you to live a life prioritized properly -- just as it should be in the life of a Christian. The authors have ended their chapters with suggestions for activities closely based on the Worldwide Marriage Encounter practices, so even those who have never "made a weekend" can experience a renewal of their relationship together. And the book is written to be sensitive to those situations where only one partner is interested in improvement and renewal, recognizing that when we improve/change ourselves, it improves our marriage (and sometimes brings our unwilling partner to want to change). The tone of the writing is encouraging and comforting, so it seems as though you are sitting with a loving guide who wants the best for you. A wonderful book!
