Publisher's Description

In this scrapbook of your spiritual family tree, you have the faithful patriarchs and matriarchs who make you proud…and the scoundrels who you’d rather not talk about. But all of these ancestors, Couples of the Bible, will give you a snapshot of your biblical heritage. Some bring encouragement, others offer a stern warning.

Through this 52-week devotional experience, you will be reacquainted with the obstacles and outcomes of familiar couples like Abraham & Sarah…and meet some lesser-known couples like Othniel & Aksah. Each week focuses on one couple of the Bible, from Adam & Eve to Christ & His Bride. You will read their story, learn about their cultural setting and explore how their story can teach you important truths about your own marriage. Each week you will be guided with questions applying biblical truth to your relationship with your spouse. And you’ll finish the week with a time of reflection, thanksgiving and prayer.

Couples of the Bible will teach you how God guided couples in the past and will encourage you to trust in his faithfulness for your marriage.

    Although this 52-week study is meant to be read together during the course of a year, I went through it in a week (for the purpose of the review- I will go over it again slower!) and by myself. Each week is divided into 5 days of studying a biblical couple (some couples, such as Adam and Eve have more than one week devoted to them). Monday is the story of the couple, based off the Bible, but with elaboration. Tuesday highlights the culture and customs of that time period. Wednesday gives a more empathetic account of what the couple may have experienced during that time of their lives. It ends with a Bible verse. Additional Scripture and questions for thought and discussions can be answered on Thursday, followed by prayer topics on Friday. The couples are pulled from the Bible in chronological order, beginning with a 3-week focus on Adam and Eve and ending with Christ and His bride, the church. Not all are well-known couples, nor are they all examples of godly individuals who loved the Lord, but as is true in life, there are lessons that can be learned from the past that are still applicable today.

    As I often felt that they strained to write something for the first three days (usually light on Scripture and heavy on an embellished story of the couple) , I felt this could have been combined into one day; additionally, I think that each weekly study could be performed in a day if the individual/couple had a good hour of time to devote to the chapter. I did appreciate the synopsis at the beginning of each chapter that highlights the meaning of their names (which were meaningful/significant in those days), as well as their characteristics and challenges they faced. In conclusion, I found this devotional to be a useful investment as the Wolgemuths' broke down and highlighted the strengths and weaknesses of different couples, where I may have glossed over the take-home point had I been reading their story straight out of my Bible.
