He has spoken to millions of people in 30-plus countries and written numerous books, including Dying to Live, Amazing Encounters with God, and 12 Questions to Ask Before You Marry (coauthored with his wife, Charie). Clayton loves good books, the outdoors, strong coffee, dirt bikes and four-wheelers, and especially his wife and children. Sharie King is an artist, author, and a popular speaker at youth and womens conferences. She has coauthored 12 Questions to Ask Before You Marry with her husband, Clayton. Together with her pastor-evangelist husband, Sharie shares a passion to serve Christ through ministry, missions, and marriage, which she pursues by prioritizing being a wife to Clayton and a mom to their two sons.
Clayton and Charie King invite us to consider 1 Corinthians 13:4, "Love is patient," as they submit a firm and realistic stance of couples waiting to learn about vital facets of their personalities before matrimony in 12 Questions to Ask Before You Marry. Against a society ruled by passion, they set down questions that love-struck couples need to consider -- but too often don't. The Kings' goal is to make certain that marriage-minded couples know when to approach the topic and how to approach it with divine purpose.
The Kings challenge readers with questions about respect, commitment, truth, money, extended family, compatibility, responsibility, and all the sticky subjects ignored by many lovers. Listing one question a chapter, the book clearly submits a point and then elaborates on it with anecdotes, quotes, and biblical backing. With more than a decade of marriage and ministry to other couples, readers can trust in Clayton and Charie's experience.
In every chapter, the point that a shallow and sparkling relationship will never withstand trial is hammered in. Common perspectives are confronted, and rationalizations against hard work in relationships are uprooted.
This book will not leave any readers without inspiring them to marital excellence. Communicated simply and straight-forwardly, the book cannot be misunderstood. Although recommended for engaged couples, those who are married can garner sound advice from the book; it can also be helpful to a young persons first explorations into what marriage is about.
