Book Description

Jim Keller, a nationally known marriage counselor, gives unconventional advice for a successful marriage in his new book ,The Upside Down Marriage.

>As the bride stands at the back of the church on her father's arm, looking at her beaming groom waiting for her, neither one of them assume that their marriage will be anything but blissful an exciting adventure of two people bound by love. Oh sure, they don't presume that they will be without problems, but theirs will be a union of joy and understanding. But what happens when the marriage becomes less about the better and more about the worse of their vows?

Having counseled couples for more than 25 years, Keller shares his expertise and insight on the best ways for couples facing the challenges of healthy marriage to come together and make things work. But Upside Down Marriage is not just for couples already in the throes of a troubled relationship, but also for those looking to keep a good marriage from heading down that path.

The Upside Down Marriage is for couples:

  • Already in the throes of a troubled relationship
  • Looking to keep a good marriage from heading down a bad path


  • Keller uses humor to share his expertise and insight on the issues of marriage.


Editorial Reviews

Review

I have known Jim for many years and have always appreciated his insights on living life and having a rich family experience. --Steve Douglass, President of Campus Crusade for Christ

Jim Keller is wise and insightful. This book is full of practical, biblical, and helpful admonitions that challenge conventional wisdom and offer a better way to live. Reading this won't make your marriage better, but it will give you some new tools to do the work and a gain new perspective on your relationship. --Isaac Hunter, Senior Pastor of Summit Church, Orlando, Florida

Jim Keller's upside-down perspective on marriage makes more sense than any right-side-up approach we've seen in a long time! This book represents the accumulated wisdom of thousands of hours of Jim's counseling experience in a creative and practical form. It's like free marriage counseling with Jim! --Tim and Joy Downs, Authors of Fight Fair and One of Us Must Be Crazy

5.0 out of 5 stars The Missing Marriage Manual! June 11, 2013
Format:Paperback
The best way to describe this book is the missing manual that should have come with the marriage license. Couples go through life together facing different situations. While most are pleasant, there will be a few unforeseen bumps in the road. This book gives a very clear plan on how to healthily manage those bumps and turn them into opportunities for strength and growth. The bumps in the road are to be expected because they are a normal part of life. Keller talks about issues most important in marriage such as conflict, financial, intimacy, religious, parenting, quality time, and a few others. As a professional counselor, he uses examples from couples he's personally interacted with (changing their names to protect their privacy, of course), along with personal stories from his own 35 year marriage. He comes from a place that is experienced and friendly, caring and informative, and neutral but on-your-side along the way.

I personally believe that every couple should read this book together. The value of insight shared in this book will not only transform your marriage; but I also feel that if every couple read and implemented the principles in this book, the divorce rate would significantly decrease. Marriage is important. The Upside Down Marriage explains how to make your marriage one that will last a lifetime.

This was an easy 5 stars. It covered a variety of topics across the board from a professional and personal perspective while sharing a message that most couples can relate to. I highly recommend reading this book, even if you are happily married. There are some great tips in here to make something great even better, or help reconstruct something that is in a difficult place. And also great ideas for preparing yourself on how to handle future conflict you may run into down the road.

Note: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good August 10, 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a great read. It provided thought provoking reminders to lessons which many have been taught in our youth but easily neglect to put into continuous practice as an adult.
