Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

" 'If I tried to summarize, I would have to say these are the two essentials: that the husband and wife love and serve each other, thus meeting the emotional need for love and intimacy. And secondly, that they deal effectively with their failures by apologizing and forgiving. Apologizing and forgiving are essential because none of us are perfect.' It took me a long time to get through this book. Not because it's boring, but because it's geared toward a slightly difference audience than me. I have been married ten years, and this is geared toward those with even more years under the belt, or at least those older than me with grown kids and plenty of baggage. I have my baggage, but not particularly the kind discussed here. In fact it makes the troubles in marriage look like mere blips on the radar. And they are.  This book was still a good read for me, and has encouraged me to be a better wife and to refocus my efforts in marriage, not onto my husband so much as onto God. He is the one who can save any marriage. He is the one who offers the grace and forgiveness needed to maintain peace in a marriage.  To those who have spent many years married to their spouse and hope to spend many more (or even those that have given up on hope), read this book. It may restore your faith in marriage and in God. There are many stories here that may just resonate with you, your spouse, or even your children and your individual sufferings. Do not give up on the marathon of marriage. It is well worth the effort to reach the finish having run a good race." Reviewed by Kelsie Engen on NetGalley, Jan 20, 2016
“Narrating this down-to-earth guide, Peter Berkrot brings a dramatic flair that makes listening both entertaining and inspiring. His vocal tone is clear and masculine, and his phrasing has a lot of appealing twists and turns that make the dialogue, in particular, sound familiar and believable. Principal author Gary Chapman, a minister and author of the classic relationship book The Five Love Languages, has the perspective to cut through the soundbites and platitudes usually found in marriage guides. With the help of Berkrot’s interpretive and vocal skills, this a book that sounds thoroughly convincing regarding the authors’ authority, their appreciation of marriage, and the wisdom of the guidance they offer.” AudioFile
“This book is practical, easy-to-read, and will navigate you through real-life challenges to a marriage that is aging well.” Juli Slattery, president and cofounder, Authentic Intimacy
