Wayne Mack completed his doctoral studies at Westminster Theological Seminary under the supervision of Jay E. Adams, who is world renowned for his Reformed approach to the field of counselling. Mack has largely followed in the footsteps of his mentor. He is the author of several books, all of which reflect the influence of the Jay Adams approach to counselling. Mack is currently the Director of the Christian Counselling and Educational Foundation in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
Strengthening Your Marriage was initially developed as part of the requirements of Mack's doctoral program under Adams, and this practical volume is essentially the fruit of these studies. Not surprisingly, it reflects the sensible and solidly Biblical approach of Adams throughout.
Taking his starting point in the divine blueprint for marriage revealed in Genesis 2:24, Mack focuses on developing a Biblical understanding of becoming "one flesh" in all areas of marriage. Each area receives a solidly Biblical exposition, with the following topics being addressed: unity through understanding God's purpose for marriage; unity through a clear understanding of the wife's responsibilities and husband's responsibilities; unity through good communication; unity through financial agreement; sexual unity; unity through a common philosophy of raising children; promoting and maintaining unity by means of family religion. Each chapter is followed by a comprehensive set of questions which reinforce the content of the chapter by requiring the readers to study various Bible verses and apply these Biblical principles to their relationship.
Mack's intention is to promote solidly Biblical pre-marital and marital counselling.

Format: Paperback
I would have liked to give this three and a half stars, but since I have to use whole numbers only...

I picked this book up after seeing it recommended by my church. I was looking for a study my husband and I could do together, and this one seemed useful.
The book is laid out in outline format, with study questions at the end that you're supposed to go over with your spouse. We both liked that, because too many marriage books are verbose to a fault, laboring over simple points. While this author can tend to ramble, the outline format really limits that fault. The study questions range from simplistic to complicated, which is nice (again, too many study books have only simple questions). I was also impressed by the amount of scripture used to back his points. However, I think that he was a little free with his interpretation of scripture, stretching certain passages to say what he thinks they should say. There were a few other faults we found with the book, mostly having to do with the organization of materials and the quality of the writing.
Overall, I would recommend this book, both for pre-marital counseling and for use in established marriages. There are plenty of useful points, and it's a good refresher on old information (for those who are Christians and who have been married for a while...like my husband and me). It's definitely better than a lot of marriage counseling books out there, and our complaints are minor in light of the usefulness of the information presented here.

Format: Paperback
When I first started reading Strengthening Your Marriage by Wayne Mack, I was not interested in what he had to say because I am not married or engaged. My views began to change, however, because of the way that Mack presented each issue. Every point that he made he backed up with multiple Scripture passages. Several points that Mack stated really opened my eyes to a new perspective of marriage.

First, I really liked how Mack took a whole chapter to discuss the wife's responsibilities in the home. Throughout history, people have held skewed views of a woman's role in the house whether it was the view that a woman is her husband's property or whether it was the view that a woman is not under her husband at all but is free to do whatever she chooses (the 20th century view). Mack biblically analyzed the wife's role and then clearly defined what the Bible teaches about submission. Although I have seen this correctly displayed in my own home through the life of my mother, it was very encouraging to read a detailed description of what a Christian wife should be. Even though the wife's submission is mandatory and not a choice (which goes against the grain of 21st century thinking), Mack declared that submission should be a joy which flows from a heart of love. Instead of feeling oppressed, the wife should delight in the protection that her husband gives her and show her support of him through her submission.

Second, the chapter on good communication was enlightening. I have read other books on the different ways that men and women think and have often been frustrated when I have been misunderstood my brother or one of my friends.
