Best Marriage Book - Love Life for Every Married Couple by Dr. Ed Wheat

Sometimes, in some categories, it is a close call as to the best. After all, there can be two very different approaches that are both very worthwhile. And, truth be known, there are lots of very good Christian books on Marriage. Dr. Dobson certainly has contributed greatly to this genre.

However, when I hear a friend say that his or her marriage is in trouble, I spend $3.95 for another copy of Love Life and give it as a gift. I suggest that no matter how good your marriage is (or not), you buy this treasure trove of wisdom and read it this weekend. Then buy a few copies to have handy for your friends.

Dr. Wheat has concluded that unconditional love is the wellspring from which we must draw in order to keep our marriages sound and healthy. Think about that. Unconditional love. Not I will only treat you in a loving way when you do things the way I want you to. Rather, I will treat you in a loving way even when you are doing things I don't like at all.

He proposes that we listen to Paul in Ephesians 5 when he tells men to love their wives like Christ loves the church. Paul was talking about sacrificial love. Then Paul goes on to tell wives to revere their husbands, and not only when their actions are worthy of reverence.

And that is only the beginning of what you will see in this great book. You may have heard radio preachers and other writers who now teach these same messages. They are all in the debt of Ed Wheat. Go to the source.

Randy,
I know I am commenting on an old story but you are exactly right, this is a great book and a worthwhile recommendation.

Your picture of the four wheeling looks like too much fun also!

Appreciate you're comment. Wonder how Stacy feels about this one. She doesn't much like LaHaye on Sex!
