Item description for Preparing Couples for Marriage: A Guide for Pastors to Premarital Counseling by Les Wicker...

Here's a comprehensive sourcebook for busy pastors with information on all aspects of wedding preparation--from premarital counseling sessions to the nuts and bolts of planning the marriage service itself. Les Wicker combines the experience of performing hundreds of weddings with extensive training in marriage and family to provide a complete package of practical, flexible material. Several sessions explore all the important issues for this most significant step in people's lives. Topics covered include family profiles, self-evaluation, resolving conflict and settling differences, financial and legal matters, and faith in the context of marriage. There's also special supplemental material for interfaith, interracial, and second marriages. Each chapter comes with reproducible handouts that allow couples to review material not covered at counseling sessions and reflect on their responses together. Handy checklists for organizing the myriad details of the wedding service round out this encyclopedic compendium that helps ministers provide the very best premarital preparation.

Pastors Need Resources  Jun 19, 2006
With the number of divorces in our country, every minister of a local Church needs resources with which to help couples look at their upcoming marriage. Les Wicker has written a helpful book and guide for pastors and couples. I commend it those who care enough to sit down with couples and talk, not just about the wedding service, but about preparing for a life of commitment, giving, forgiving, honoring, and focusing more on the head, heart, and faith fo person to whom you will be married, instead of the color of the flowers for the wedding. It is an excellent resource !
- Dr. Thomas M. Richard Exec. Secty, NACCC
