This book was really good . It is a classic not does it explain marriage but also explains grounds for divorce and God's guidelines . It takes the guilt away and gives the guidelines that are bibilical and true .. I would recommend to some one getting married and someone going through a bad divorce it is balanced. I got it for my son. With all the carnality out the Hollywood false formula and so many marriages crumbling .. Its time to here the truth this classic tells it. Easy reading . GREAT BOOK. Thanks. Got it for my son..
My pastor recommend this book and it truly is a great find! Every married couple should read this book ! ! Your marriage doesn't need to be in trouble , it's a great reminder to strengthen your marriage too!
This book devotes all but one chapter to building or rebuilding a wonderful marriage. These chapters are absolutely excellent.
One chapter in the book is entitled "Divorce; when it all comes tumbling down". This is the best coverage of what the Bible has to say about Divorce that I have read. It is sensitive to opposing attitudes, but it very clear on what the Bible states. It helped me to navigate through the worst period of my life and gave me building blocks for a new marriage. We just celebrated 30 years of that marriage.
By now Swindoll is a little larger than life. His powerful sermons and insightful books have influenced an entire generation of Christ-followers. But in this little known early work he offers timeless advice that stands up 16 years later.

In fact I consider his chapter on "Fighting Fair" to be the best advice I've ever heard, seen or read on how to manage conflict in a God-honoring way.

Great stuff!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this book! It has saved my marriage over and over again. Although we can see in the Bible what God plans for us in marriage, Charles Swindoll has a very great way of making what it says in the Word very clear! It is also great with practical examples of how to implement Biblical principles in a marriage.
My son is reading this and says it is an awesome book. Great for the marriage !!
This book is truly five stars! Chuck Swindol wrote this book several years ago and the message is timeless. For a bible based marriage you and your spouse should read and apply the message. You can bring back your marriage!
Great classic book that I had an give away, so I bought it again.
