    If you're looking for very quick devotion time together, this book has surprisingly short daily studies. Some as short as only 1 paragraph, although the scriptures, applications and truths are certainly relevant topics. As husband & wife, we were surprised when we read our first devotion from this book together; it seemed it was over before it began. Since we've enjoyed the topics and authors, we've personally put more emphasis on our prayer time together, since the devotion is shorter than expected.

    I/we enjoy the "talk about it" at the end of each devotion, it helps us discuss the topic more instead of just reading it and moving on the the next thing. It also has "opened up" some topic's that may otherwise been brushed aside.

    We have read many couple devotions (Dobson's, Moment's, etc). We just completed this entire book. This Devotional has 12 couple authors which vary in quality greatly. There are some significant Biblical & theological deviations (June 27, July 5, July 19th & others). There are some good devotionals as well but BUY A DIFFERENT BOOK THAT IS SOLID ALL AROUND NOT THIS ONE!

    Without a doubt, the best devotional for couples we've ever read. It could be a life changing experience for younger Christian couples; and has certainly deepened our daily worship relationship. It would make a great wedding present.
