Publisher's Description

Someone came between Lee and Leslie Strobel, threatening to shipwreck their marriage. No, it wasn’t an old flame. It was Jesus Christ. Leslie’s decision to become a follower of Jesus brought heated opposition from her skeptical husband. They began to experience conflict over a variety of issues, from finances to child-rearing. But over time, Leslie learned how to survive a spiritual mismatch. Today they’re both Christians--and they want you to know that there is hope if you’re a Christian married to a nonbeliever. In their intensely personal and practical book, they reveal: * Surprising insights into the thinking of non-Christian spouses * A dozen steps toward making the most of your mismatched marriage * Eight principles for reaching out to your partner with the gospel * Advice for raising your children in a spiritually mismatched home * How to pray for your spouse--plus a 30-day guide to get you started * What to do if you’re both Christians but one lags behind spiritually * Advice for single Christians to avoid the pain of a mismatch

Library Journal

High school sweethearts whose marriage seemed to have been made in heaven, the Strobels enjoyed a good life with two children and experienced few problems until Leslie became a committed Christian, much to the dismay of her husband, a confirmed atheist. The Strobels struggled along in this "spiritually mismatched" state for quite a while until Lee made the conscious decision to become a Christian as well. The Strobels do not advise couples who strongly disagree about religion to marry, but their book offers useful advice to couples who are spiritually mismatched, either from the beginning of their relationship or through a change in belief. Ideas about raising children and advice for single Christians are also included. Written in the first person, usually by Lee, the text is readable and helpful. While not a substitute for professional marriage counseling, the Strobels' suggestions are based on years of practical experience and will be useful for a Christian audience. Recommended for church libraries and for public libraries serving a sizable Christian population. Mary Prokop, Savannah Country Day Preparatory Sch.

Publisher's Weekly

Lee Strobel, whose bestselling The Case for Christ has become a standard work of evangelical apologia, was once not a Christian at all, and was openly hostile to the faith. When his wife, Leslie, became a Christian several years into their marriage, he was furious, and their union seemed doomed until "Leslie figured out how to live out her faith in a way that began to attract rather than repel [him]." In Surviving a Spiritual Mismatch in Marriage, the Strobels describe their experiences in order to help other Christians particularly women who are married to nonbelievers. Although their own ending (culminating in his conversion) followed the Christian storybook, they caution readers that it is better to concentrate on one's own spiritual growth and example than to have unrealistic expectations about a spouse's future conversion.

    This review was written for Surviving a Spiritual Mismatch in Marriage.
    I've only read through 1/2 the book so far but it has released me of all of my worries about my husband who is not (yet) a believer in Jesus Christ. I used to worry all the time about this, but this book reminds me that this is not mine to worry about. Ultimately it is between him and the Lord. I must be an example of a good Christian and show him the love he deserves. Just by doing this it has already changed our relationship for the better. The things that this couple went through we have presently been in. VERY similar responses and reactions between the two of us as this couple.

    The advice they have given has helped tremendously along with many prayers asking for God's guidance. I highly recommend taking the time to read this book if you have a mismatched marriage. It's eye opening!

    I always loved Strobel's books. My problem is not with the content but with the package authorizations of the ebook. We are not allowed to print and read in our convenience . Someone who hasn't a kindle, will be stuck with the choice of reading it on a laptop (or even on a desktop if the customer downloaded it first on a desktop, since no multiple downloads is allowed).

    Till now, I didn't read it, and I don't think I will in this format.

    This is a good example for understanding mismatched marriages and relating to people who are in a mismatched marriage.

    I just love the way Lee really gets it ! He is good at getting things across to his readers. Even if you feel as alone and frustrated as I do in your mismatched marriage, this book gives you hope and comfort to keep moving forward.

    An absolute must for anyone struggling with a non-Christian spouse. This book was a God send to me at a very crucial time for me, and the ideas, suggestions, and honest sharing in this book changed my outlook toward my spouse and the way I handle situations. I am so thankful for this book.
