Item description for Hedges: Loving Your Marriage Enough to Protect It [With DVD] by Jerry B. Jenkins & Tim LaHaye...
Overview In this new and completely rewritten edition, the author gives men practical, biblical advice on exercising faithfulness in their marriages at all times. New material in this edition addresses society's changes that have contributed to this problem.
With the divorce rate steadily climbing and infidelity creeping into even the happiest marriages, in a society that trivializes adultery and its devastating effects, with temptation and opportunity coming at you from all directions-how can you keep your marriage from becoming a statistic?
The advice from best-selling author Jerry B. Jenkins is this: plant preventative hedges around your marriage. These hedges are practical ways to avoid compromising situations and giving temptation a foothold in your life.
Jenkins's real-life stories of how temptation can slip in undetected and, in a dizzying whirl of deception and betrayal, cause a marriage to crumble are a wake-up call for all married couples. He openly shares insights from his own marriage as well as the hedges he has been using for years.
In this newly revised and updated edition with a DVD message from the author and a new study guide for group and personal use, Hedges is more helpful than ever.

Must Read for Christian Men Apr 12, 2008
This book is a great reminder of the attacks on marriage, and what we can do to protect against them. As a Pastor, I am all to aware of the attacks that come daily against marriages, and have recommended this book for newlyweds as well as those who have been married for years!
Great book for any married, or soon to be married, man Mar 18, 2008
This book was purchased after a nearly marriage ending situation that creeped up on our family without me ever realizing. Recommended by Focus on the Family, this book is a key instrument to the success of any marriage. Our marriage is, and was, great and still it was just as much a target for infidelity as any other. Hedges are needed in any marriage, especially the ones that last a life time. Thank you Jerry Jenkins for writing a candid yet powerful text that has helped me reestablish my boundaries and save my marriage!
Sound advice for protecting your marriage. Jan 26, 2008
Long before he received acclaim for his popular Left Behind series of books (and films), Jerry Jenkins was helping couples solidify their marriages. This volume of HEDGES: LOVING YOUR MARRIAGE ENOUGH TO PROTECT IT, is an updated version of Jenkins' book originally published in 1989.
The primary focus here is teaching couples how to avoid falling under the pitfalls of infidelity, which permeates far too many marriages. Many young couples might scoff at the notion, but before you do, just stop and think of how many other young people you grew up with who came from single parent homes. For many of those children of broken homes, infidelity was the cause. This is not just a problem that faces only a select group either. Prominent evangelists, judges, even US Presidents have fallen prey to infidelity. This is a growing problem that can and does affect us all in some way or another.
Here, Jenkins teaches how to, as he terms it, plant hedges to protect ourselves, our spouses and our children from becoming victims to a temporary wave of seemingly uncontrollable libido. The advice is practical and easily implementable. Given that over the past couple of generations, almost all men and women find themselves interacting more and more with the opposite sex, coupled with a rather cavalier social attitude toward infidelity (thank you Mr. Clinton), it is more important today than ever before to know how to prevent falling into such situations.
Don't think for one minute "this will never happen to me". It certainly can happen to anyone. Knowing how to plant the hedges of protection will prepare you to know how to avoid such possibilities. You made a promise before God to be true and faithful to your spouse. You owe it to him or her and you owe it to your children to be prepared if and when you are tempted.

The church should talk about this stuff Aug 25, 2007
I read this book under the original title - Loving Your Marriage Enough to Protect It, and now again under Hedges, the updated version. Hedges are essential to a healthy marriage! Excellent book. Real world. Something that the church often doesn't talk about, but needs to in order to help married couples stay married. I wanted to note that in Hedges, the author does mention Lois Mowday's book, The Snare, which also gives the woman's viewpoint. I did not see this book listed in the cited books on this site. I have not read the book, but I think it will help balance a couple's Bible study.
essential! Jun 1, 2007
Every married couple needs to read this book. Start building hedges now before you regret it later.
