Item description for Lasting Marriage: The Owners' Manual by Harvey Yoder & Lee Eshleman...

Overview
Lasting Marriage is based on the premise that relationships need the same kind of care and maintenance we give any other valued possession, such as a motor vehicle. While we naturally assume our cars will require more, not less, care as they age, we have often not applied that same reasoning to marriage. This manual looks at premarital preparation, relationship maintenance, and sustaining a healthy marriage during the child-rearing years. Harvey Yoder emphasizes areas of relationship maintenance often ignored in other similar books. These include the importance of a solid support network of friends, family, and congregational family; and the need to take seriously Jesus' teaching about a joyful and simple lifestyle.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lasting Marriage?

Highly Recommended- Read it for Yourself, Share it with Others  Aug 8, 2007
Harvey Yoder weaves more than 40 years of pastoral and professional counseling experience with the accumulated wisdom of his own rich family life to craft this great little book on marriage. It's accessible, with short, easy to read chapters, and it covers all the bases. The numerous appendices provide practical and helpful bonus material. I was particularly blessed by the author's reflections on his own family story in the first chapter.
 
The Perfect Gift  Jun 9, 2007
As a therapist, I rate this book as excellent in communicating sound and fundamental issues for a successful marriage. I liked the readibility and the original concept of an owner's manual applied to marriage. I like that Yoder writes from a lifetime of experience as a family counselor, therapist, husband, pastor, father and grandfather. He is very comprehensive in covering life issues that derail a marriage. His presentation of the pitfalls and joys of marriage are so realistic. One can easily relate to the examples and original illustrations. I liked that he introduces the concept of "reactivity" as a major pitfall in all relationships.

One gets the impression that this book is a work of love that took years in development. It is deeply moving at times, sensitive, practical and so readable. Lastly, the attractivness and color of the outside, matches the creative writing inside. My wife and I immediately ordered more copies for wedding and engagement gifts. What an attractive and helpful gift to give any married couple. It far exceeded my expectations.
 
Highly recommend this book  May 23, 2007
Lasting Marriage offers useable advice in an easily-read "owners' manual." As a therapist, I look for books that offer concise, accurate and accessible information. This is it. With questionairres, anecdotes, and personal stories, Yoder offers many tools for couples considering or committed to marriage. I've shared it with young couples and my own adult children. Rave reviews all around.
 
A Standout  May 4, 2007
The product review makes this claim: "Harvey Yoder emphasizes areas of relationship maintenance often ignored in other similar books."

There are so many books out there on relationships, but I actually found the product claim to be true. The author's many years of experience and unique way of explaining things really do add value to this book. It's concise, informative, and definitely helpful.
 
Revelations you can apply today  May 3, 2007
This book is a fairly quick read, and well worth the time. You will get some memorable anecdotes, some useful tools in the appendix, and some great revelations from an experienced counselor and husband. Whether you're thinking about marriage, just started, experiencing rocky times, or just looking for a tune-up, this handy reference will serve you well. It also has some amusing illustrations based on the ideas in each chapter.
