In What did you expect? Pastor Paul Tripp clearly shares with us a biblical understanding of marriage. This book makes a very important contribution to the church in a day and an age when Christian marriages are struggling. Pastor Tripp steers us away from a self-centered view of marriage to a biblical view of marriage that edifies the couple and builds Gods kingdom. The content of What did you expect? is so simple but biblical, powerful and profound. Pastor Tripp reminds us that we enter into marriage as sinners living in a fallen world. Therefore, Tripp encourages believers to commit to confession and forgiveness, growth and change, building a bond of trust, building a relationship of love, dealing with differences and working to protect the marriage. I believe that What did you expect? will be helpful for couples regardless of where they are in their relationship. This book would be great for premarital counseling. It will help couples understand what is required to have a life-long, loving marriage. This book will also be helpful for married couples who need to be reminded of the commitment that they made to one another. What did you expect? was well written and it included many true stories to help illustrate the principles. I really appreciated Lloyd James narration. James reading of this book made listening to this audio book a meaningful experience for me.I express my appreciation to christian audio for allowing me to listen to this book as a part of their audio book reviews program.
