Nip marital issues in the bud Aug 26, 2009
The Excellent Marriage, A Training Manual to Equip you in Discovering God's Grand Design is a straight forward and thought provoking Bible Study intended for engaged Christian couples, newlyweds, or any couple who sincerely desires to improve their marriage. As noted by the author, this book is also well-suited for a group Bible study (composed of couples) or for Marriage Retreats.
The book itself is laid out in 10 chapters and covers a variety of topics. It would be helpful for each person to have his/ her own copy of the book as it involves responding to a series of questions. The author provides a number of illustrations (stories/ examples) that points the couple to the Bible, follows up with thought provoking questions and provides a brief summary at the end of each chapter.
Chapter one lays out a biblical foundation for marriage and starts with what it means to be a Christian. Additional chapters cover such topics as proper biblical love, improper love (i.e. self-love/ selfishness), how to effectively communicate marital sexuality, parenting, how to deal with money and conflict resolution.
As the author states on page 10:
"Marriage is fulfilling, but it is also hard work. Successful Christian marriages are made up of two committed Christians who are growing in their relationship to God and in their intimacy with one another."
This book is indeed a useful tool for Pastors, Christian Counselors and any Christian couple seeking to glorify God in marriage.
