Product Description

Psychologist Larry Crabb argues convincingly that the deepest needs of human personality - security and significance - cannot be satisfied by a marriage partner. We need to turn to the Lord, rather than our spouse, to satisfy our needs. This frees both partners for "soul oneness," a commitment to minister to our spouse's needs rather than manipulating them to meet our own needs. With "soul oneness" comes renewed "body oneness," where couples enjoy sexual pleasure as an expression and outgrowth of a personal relationship.

The Marriage Builder also identifies three building blocks essential to constructing marriage: the grace of God, true marriage commitment, and acceptance of one's mate. A discussion guide is include in the back of the book. It contains questions to consider for each chapter in the book.

    Many truths presented but i was very disappointed that there wasn't some kind of a disclaimer that warned women who are in abusive situations that these action steps he recommends will not work with an abuser and will probably make things much worse since she will be playing right into his entitlement mentality and perpetuating the abuse cycle. This book simply heaps more false guilt on her because regardless of how many of these steps she follows, he will still abuse.

    A little harder to follow. We have studied other marriage enrichment books before, and are having a harder time with this one. however, the writing style is great!

    This is probably one of the soundest presentations of what marriage consists. It deals nicely with the reality of oneness at the three levels of our being (Spirit, soul and body). But Dr. Crabb does not try to give simplified answers nor standardized solutions to marital problems. He does seek to lead people into deeper relationship with Christ.I have recommended this book more than any other to couples who seek to build and strengthen their marriages.

    Probably the best Christian Guidance on marriage I have read. I have read at least 12. Larry Crabb's books are always excellent. I have read at least 5 of his books.

    There are many "marriage help" books but for my husband and I this might as well be the only one. The book does exactly what is says in the description. It makes you look to God to provide all your needs, except you spouse and renews your marriage relation.We found the questions extremely helpful in discoveing where we have gone of the right trail but they are a lot of work. We realize that without the hard work we can't undo what we've build up as habbits over all the years (even from before our marriage) and it takes hard work to learn to respond in a Godly way, today and in two months as well. With highest recommendation. Jantina Buter
