Ron2 Stars Out Of 5Humanistic World ViewNovember 12, 2016RonQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This book, along with the Gottman Institute Couples Seminars, are totally based on a secular humanistic world-view. There is no reference to a Biblical World View, or God's values in these psychology based principles. Some of it is good and practical advice. However, referencing "significant other" focus instead of wife and husband, and referring to these principles being practiced in a gay marriage as examples of how relationships should work is definitely not speaking to God's plan for a marriage between a man and a woman. No Biblical references for what a marriage should be in this book, or in the Gottman's seminars that they promote and conduct worldwide. As a Born Again Christian, I cannot recommend this book or the Gottman's seminars. I gave it two stars because there is some practical value to this book, but it does not support our God's purpose and definition of marriage.
teaching4MOAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Biblical Basis??July 6, 2015teaching4MOAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I have not read this book. I work in the church library and as a book grabs my attention I investigate it's value.
My biggest trouble with this book is there basically is no Biblical reference or glory to God.
It is based on science. That in itself is not bad, but it is not paired together to prove Biblical truth.
I would potentially read this book, but I am going to suggest it be removed from our church library as we specifically want our resources to point to God and His Word.
I gave it a 3 star because there is some potentially helpful information, but proceed with caution that it is not written with a Biblical perspective.
JoshNo. Va.Age: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent!July 1, 2011JoshNo. Va.Age: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Gottman is a pre-eminent and world-reknown researcher on marriage. I have yet to read a book that covers all of the topics necessary to have a thriving marriage but this book addresses a number of neccesities. It has a variety of assessments and exercises couples can use to improve their marriage. As a professional counselor working frequently with couples I use principles, assessments, and exercises from this book often. It's not exhaustive, but what it does address it addresses well.
