Marriage is a profound and marvelous mystery established by God for his glory-and that is for our good. So many marital relationships never reach their greatest potential because they have the fatal limitation of being focused on one another. When our focus is solely on God, our marriages have the potential to thrive and not merely survive.
While most marriage books cant wait to get into the his needs/her needs and his feelings/her feelings debate, the Ricuccis wisely take the time to lay down some foundational concepts that every couple needs to consider. They begin by looking at three questions: Does your marriage find its purpose primarily in God? Does your marriage find its hope in the gospel of grace? and, Does your marriage find its home in the local church? The answers to these questions will ultimately determine the success of a marriage. Whether the Ricuccis are discussing communication, sex, romance, or any other topic, those three questions are always just below the surface.
Their approach is truly collaborative. For instance, Gary may be the primary author of a chapter, but at any moment Betsy might pop in and add a timely comment or two before Gary continues. But the unique style works well and reinforces the concept of becoming one. When appropriate, Gary takes a chapter to address the male readers, while Betsy provides a chapter covering the wifes aspect of the topic.
Both authors do a strong job of basing their ideas on biblical principles and showing the intertwining of the husbands and wifes roles. The Riccucis show that if a marriage is based on Jesus Christ, it really can be a Love That Lasts. Jeff Friend, Christian Book Previews.com
