    We did this book as part of our joint devotions... And a "follow up" to the premarital counseling workbook of Mack's we used before getting married. We'd read as few points/do as many questions as we wanted to each day, which allowed us to have great discussions on topics of oneness through communication, sexual intimacy, financial decisions and child raising. We loved how much scripture was in it and practical advice... Was as valuable as reading "Marriage God's Way" before marrying has been to us!

    Mainly for married people but still usefull as it gives precious advices useful in the future. The style of book is structured, nice, easy and enjoyable to read (bulleted list). It gives advices to improve marital relationships. Deeply grounded in Scriptures (gives a lot of verses). I liked the definition of wife's submission to husband, the insights on marriage and the part on raising children.

    The book is basically a large outline in format and is very scattered in its thought process. You could basically just google “Scripture on (fill in the blank)” and you could get the information much easier and avoid suffering through this book. I wouldn’t recommend it to a pagan.

    PRO: Talked about the big issues in marriage (the ones that cause divorces), has lots of verses to support his points.CONS: If you've read the Bible or heard anything on marriage, you've pretty much heard 80% of the book already. Also, the questions you have to ask your partner are pretty lame and I've addressed most of them before we were engaged.This book was required for Amanda and I to read by our per-marital counselor. It is good for a basic understanding of what the Bible says about marriage and how to deal with the big issues of marriage - roles, family, finances, communication, and sex. After listening to Mark Driscol, RC Sproul, P Joe, and reading the Bible, most of what's said here is repeated.I liked the chapter on raising your children because I've never really looked into that yet. I read about 10% of the chapter on finances because I'm pretty good with my money and know how to handle it and know what the Bible says about it (as far as this book is concerned). One statement the book made was, "don't spend more than you make" and I was thinking, "REALLY?!?! they have to say that?"If you're looking for a pre marital book, I'd look for another with better content and questions to ask your partner.

    We used this book for our premarital counseling sessions and it was great. The book is written in outline form so it's easy to pick up/put down. It has a lot of real life scenarios that we found helpful and pointed out things in our relationship that we didn't realize that we needed to work out, such as ties to our family of origin and the way we treat eachother on a daily basis. Great for premarital counseling or if you are already married. We skipped the parenting and financial section (we had just taken the dave ramsey class). I would recommend.

    A thorough book that covers all the essentials of a strong marriage. Mack focuses on scripture, requiring the reader to think about the verses and apply them to their marriage. Detailed and exhaustive questions follow the end of each chapter. Solid and helpful.

    This is the book that our counselors used with us. We went through about the first four chapters. A lot of the material is similar to Preparing for Marriage God's Way, but this is written for married couples, in more of a book format with workbook assignments at the end of the chapters.

    This was a clear, biblical look at marriage and how to approach yours. It was helpful and encouraging. I highly recommend it. Plus, it's straight-forward, no cheesy narratives.

    Good reminders, fairly simple and straightforward. Good questions to work through at the end of each chapter too!

    This is a great, very practical volume to help promote oneness in marriages. I would recommend it to anyone even if he or she were not married. It has great incite.

    It's not a bad book to remind yourself of all the elements involved in getting married. I enjoyed it.
