Christian Marriage Guide with Heart & Humor Apr 6, 2008
Generation NeXt Marriage by Tricia Goyer is a terrific, hip Christian guide to marriage for Generation X. As the first generation of latch-key kids who often came from broken homes, they view marriage in a way completely different than their parents and grandparents. They are less likely to see divorce as an option and more likely to require authenticity and honesty in their relationships. Each chapter begins with a lyric from a 1970s or 80s song, and Goyer uses that to jumpstart her conversation. And that's how her writing reads: like a conversation with a good friend. She uses statistics and studies to make her points, and them backs them up with Scripture. Goyer is very active online and uses anecdotes from her loyal readers about their marriages to add layers and depth to each discussion. Goyer is just as honest as Gen Xrs demand, including a chapter about a former boyfriend. She'll never make you feel guilty; she encourages and uplifts with humor and compassion. She's always a joy to read.
Sheds a Different Light on a Very Important Topic. Mar 31, 2008
Tricia Goyer is back to talk the the Gen X'ers on her most important topic yet. She does an excellent job of getting the message across. Her format is sound bite easy to read. A perfect book for the uber-involved who read in snippets while escaping into the bathroom for some peace and quiet, or while waiting for soccer practice to end.
Being on the early, early edge of Generation X, some of what she shared didn't quite hit the mark with me, especially some of the music she quoted. But during the beginning years of my marriage and child raising, I became aware of the soundtrack for the Gen X'ers and the heartbeat of the generation sounds loud and clear throughout the book. Many of the issues that Tricia covered apply to most generations. So don't let a lack of immersion in the 80's/ 90's culture become a reason to avoid reading what Tricia shared, or for ignoring the truth that needs to be considered.
I appreciate Tricia's honesty. In Generation NeXt Parenting I considered Tricia an expert. Good grief, she homeschools and writes books and... well, you get the picture. But Tricia paints some not so flattering self-portraits in Generation NeXt Marriage that should endear her to an entire generation of wives. Thanks for your transparency, Tricia. And thank John for his willingness to allow your marriage to be placed under a microscope.
I am a firm believer in investing your money into your marriage since marriage is the framework you build on the foundation of Christ. What are you building, a ranch, a modular, a mansion or a shack? Don't buy the book if you have no intention of using it to guide your own growth and change. Don't buy it for your spouse, either. After all, you may be the only book your spouse chooses to read, so without your change, the message is lost.
If you are tired of doing the same old and getting the same old results, you might find it very useful to look at how culture and your early years have shaped you.
Great Read Mar 19, 2008
This is a great read. Especially if you are a GenXer or if you are struggling to understand a GENXer.
