This valuable bookwritten for married or engaged couples or those in anticipation of marriageis a biblical exposition of how to make the truth and principles of a godly marriage not just come alive, but last.
Gary and Betsy Ricucci are members of Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville, Kentucky, where Gary serves as a pastor. They have 35 years of experience serving engaged and married couples through small groups, counseling, seminars, and conferences. Gary is also director of student care for the Pastors College of Sovereign Grace Ministries.
C. J. Mahaney is the senior pastor of Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville. He has written, edited and contributed to numerous books, including Proclaiming a Cross-Centered Theology; Don't Waste Your Sports; and Sex, Romance and the Glory of God. C. J. and his wife, Carolyn, are the parents of three married daughters and one son, and the happy grandparents to twelve grandchildren.
Carolyn Mahaney is a wife, mother, and homemaker. Having spent over thirty years as a pastor's wife, Carolyn has spoken to women in many churches and conferences. She is the author of Feminine Appeal, Girl Talk, Shopping for Time and True Beauty. She blogs with her daughters at www.girltalkhome.com, a blog focused on biblical womanhood. Carolyn and her husband, C. J., are the parents of three married daughters and one son, and the happy grandparents to twelve grandchildren.
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
