Mad About Us Feb 1, 2008
This is a must have book for any couple who wants to anger-proof their marriage--not that it eliminates our anger, but Gary and Carrie show us clearly where our anger comes from and what couples can do to minimize this dangerous emotion in a mariage. Their personal stories give depth and understanding to their important principles. A must have for any couple who values their marriage.
Outstanding resource Jan 3, 2008
Having worked with couples for more than 20 years, this book by the Olivers is a great resource for couples who want to discover the dynamics of marital conflict and what to do about it. Written in a way that is easy for anyone to understand, the ideas and suggestions for dealing with conflict and the emotions that are associated with it can be quickly applied. The practical suggestions and end-of-chapter questions make it ideal for use in small groups or church settings as well. The way in which Gary and Carrie weave their own story into the information they present makes for enjoyable reading. A valuable book for couples who want to learn how to make the most of conflicts in drawing them closer together!
A must read for both! Dec 30, 2007
Both Gary and Carrie Oliver speak from such experience the entire book rings true. It is presented in an easy to read (not necessarily easy to accomplish) way. Well, it is easy to accomplish if both partners read the book and are willing to work from "anger to intimacy"
Mad About Us Dec 16, 2007
This book is such a profound gift of transparent experience and Godly wisdom. It is required reading for all couples who desire to fulfill the ultimate purpose of their marriage. We ordered fifty copies for marriage ministry.
So Good That I Bought 20 Copies To Give Away Dec 13, 2007
This is a real-life practical relationship book that has application even beyond marriage. After 20 years of marriage, there are still so many things to learn about making our relationship richer and better. This book provides real help for real world relationships. This book was a gift to me... so I have decided to give away a copy for every year of marriage (20) that this book could have helped me with! John
