Most books on marriage offer ten easy steps and twenty-five proven principles for achieving marital bliss. But Walter Wangerin side-steps such easy answers and offers us instead an intimate portrait of his own courtship and thirty-two year marriage-and a pastoral view of married life that inspires readers to view their own marriages with new honesty and hope. Wangerin's six tasks of marriage encourages couples to better understand and happily live out the vows they made, giving them tools to nurture and maintain a strong marital relationship. In his endorsement, Philip Yancey accurately describes this book as "an enduring classic and a book of wisdom, beauty, compassion, and piercing honesty."
Carol R5 Stars Out Of 5November 15, 2007Carol RThis beautifully written book delves into the core of what a marriage is and should be. It is both profound and practical. Profound because it looks behind and beneath the levels of relationship most of us settle for, and practical in that it sets forth the specific tasks involved in building a godly marriage. Along the way the author shares stories of his own courtship and marriage with humility and grace. I just read an old copy I found, and am buying the newer edition for my church library. This is a must-read for those contemplating marriage as well as any desiring a deeper bond with their spouse.
