Format: Paperback
This book is broken down to include deep communication from commitment and companionship which are at the root, and God's design in todays relativistic society. Also, the book has quick exercies in scripture verses to test your level of marital intimacy. The book is more biblical and relevant than todays pop psychology,books.

Format: Paperback
Ronald E. Hawkins, "Strengthening Marital Intimacy" was a concise and interesting look at God's design for marriage and what intimacy in marriage - according to God - is. In the opening chapter the author says, "God created male and female to function as a team and share the joys of God's creation. Satan drove a wedge between them, and over the centuries males and females have been locked in a tragic power struggle."

How true it is that discovering intimacy in marriage is an often sought after and seldom discovered reality in the lives of believers and non believers alike. We are all victims of the fall of humanity into sin and self indulgence. The author goes on to point out that it is in fact God's desire for couples to operate at the level of spiritual unity and intimacy. The biggest trouble though is that people have been conditioned to misunderstand what intimacy really is.

There are many people who live under the mistaken impression that intimacy is primarily or even solely a physical reality but this is simply not the case. God has intended for couples to live in a condition of spiritual intimacy, intimacy of the soul or intellect, as well as physical intimacy. A primary barrier to intimacy that is pointed out by the author is anger which gets in the way of an intimate relationship. People do not respond in close and loving ways to others who explode at them in anger or rage.

Commitment is the base upon which solid marriages are built. Particularly in a biblical sense, commitment is something far greater than merely an emotional response to feeling dedicated to another individual. A Marriage is a contractual obligation that each partner enters into with the other partner.
