Item description for Reforming Marriage by Douglas Wilson...
Overview How would you describe the spiritual aroma of your home? The source of this aroma is the relationship between husband and wife. Many can fake an attempt at keeping God's standards in some external way. What we cannot fake is the resulting, distinctive aroma of pleasure to God. Most marriage books address the mere externals of marriage, without seeking to understand the heart issues. Godly marriages proceed from an obedient heart, and the greatest desire of an obedient heart is the glory of God, not the happiness of the household.

Excellent Biblical Advice on Marriage Aug 31, 2008
If you've read your bible you shouldn't be surprised by anything in this book- it's all in there and it is sound doctrine- but it has been washed over, ignored, and disregarded by many churches/christians for the last 30 years. Thankfully we seem to be seeing the slow reemergence of this important topic. I call it a must read for any young single person hoping to marry one day AND for everyone else who is already married- husbands as well as wives. When BOTH parties in a marriage follow the biblical standard and purpose of marriage it is a beautiful and blessed thing! If you want your own personal ministry to carry Gods seal of approval, you must have your own household swept clean and put in order. This is a book that will motivate you to do just that.
Best book on christian marriage I have ever read Dec 8, 2007
After reading many reviews of this book I decided to get it. I was not disappointed. It is very challenging on many levels, biblically based, and clear. Wilson does not pull any punches and although you might find yourself smarting a bit after reading a particularly convicting section, you can't really argue against it. It is going on my short list of books to "master."
A must-read for husbands and wives Sep 19, 2007
I bought this as a wedding gift for my best friend and her husband who just got married. I thought the book would get them much, much farther in life than a stainless steel place setting. ;) In all seriousness, this book is a phenomenal read, implementing biblical principles in a very readable style. Some books tell you what not to do; this book explains *why*. I highly recommend Reforming Marriage for husbands and wives, or even engaged couples preparing for marriage.
So far, the Best Book on Marriage in the Christian Home Jul 8, 2007
As I was listening to this audiobook, I was impressed that Douglas Wilson stuck with the Biblical concepts of marriage. The concepts of this book is exactly what is needed in today's world. It is refreshing to see someone going back to the Bible basics on what a Christian Home should be like. I recommend this to be part of any Church study for couples young and old.
Married or Not Here It Is Straight From the Bible Jul 5, 2007
Amazing how God gives us exactly what we need at the very moment we need it. Read this to find out what submissive really means and what respect really is in a marriage. Why God wired women and men differntly? To compliment one another, help one another. To bad we are all so self absorbed to see what Amazing Grace really has been given to us.
