This book is the best I have read on strengthening the marriage relationship. I've passed several to young couples in our local church who are struggling in their marriage. I tell them it's not only a good read, but the book is a very easy read.
The subtitle to the book explains exactly what you will take away from this book if you take the time to read it. The subtitle says "How to have a passionate and deeply rewarding marriage." I gave this book 5/5 stars. I thought the purpose of the book was well thought out and followed through on. I liked the examples and stories chosen to highlight a principle the author was presenting. I especially enjoyed the way the book was written. I did not feel preached to in any way! It was written from one friend who has learned ways to enhance a marriage and given to anyone who wants their marriage to grow in the Lord. I would recommend this book for all engaged and married couples.
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
My wife and I are using this book for our young marrieds' class at church on Sunday mornings. We bought a copy for each couple who attends the class. It has been a terrific study, prompting really good discussion. We are very pleased with our selection of the book, and I believe each couple in our class would say the same thing.
Lifelong Love Affair is definitely the overall summary of what it takes to make a great marriage. If you are just getting married or have been married forever, there are great tools and reminders to keep the fire burning. I love the honesty that is presented about what real love is and the fact that everyone CAN have this kind of love, a dynamic, fearless and covenantal love. Also, there is a study Guide for small groups that is a great bonus to this book. A definite recommended read for all couples!
