This book was different than any I have ever read on marriage and I strongly encourage everyone to read it, whether you're single, newlywed or have been married for years. There is a tremendous amount within these pages to think about – whether you agree with the authors' conclusions or not. Information is presented in a clear format and grounded in efficiently sited Biblical references. It definitely kept my attention and I was impressed with the authors' rare ability to state their own position firmly without bashing, insulting or dismissing other opinions or ideas.
A brief word of warning: this is not one of those books you probably want to take with you on the bus or to the gym. With provocative or easily misinterpreted section headings, it could lead to some blush-worthy conversations in the wrong company!
