Love Dr. Chapman Oct 4, 2008
This is an awesome book written by an awesome man. Dr. Chapman has really helped me to evolve. I will read anything he puts out. Highly recommended.
Great marriage manual Sep 20, 2008
My wife and I are Christian marriage counselors and this is one of the main books we give to couples for a comprehensive manual on improving their marriages. We have heard Dr. Chapman in person and he is authentic, down-to-earth and very biblical with a great sense of humor. The chapters are short so "non-readers" (some men and some women) are able to stay with the reading. We also like the exercises for couples at the end of each chapter as homework. Highly recommended for those wishing to grow in their marriage and understand God's design for marriage.
A good book for anyone that is married Sep 20, 2008
Dr. Chapman just tells it like it is. I am not currently married but have been. I decided to read this book after reading about the love languages. It would be good for someone to read the five love languages before reading this book because he refers to the love languages. I can see where this book could help a couple get to know each other again, spruce up the marriage, or become "unstuck". If or when I should be married again, I would like my partner to read this book just for general knowledge.
Good advice Aug 20, 2008
As usual, Gary Chapman presents some great advice for husbands and wives. This book is definitely worth reading. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because Chapman falls back on the old advice that husbands have the final say when the husband and wife are at an impass. He presents verses from the Bible to back up his position, but it's weak. He and I will have to agree to disagree because the Bible actually doesn't say who gets the final word. Conservative Christians love to obsess about this - yes, obsess - but God doesn't. Anyway, overall, it's a very good book.
Relationship Intimacy is attainable... Aug 23, 2007
The concept of oneness and intimacy that Dr. Chapman reveals produces the most amazing and rewarding marriage realtionship possible. The more we practice his concepts, the better our marriage gets and it was good to start with.
