Each for the Other is a refreshing and definitive look at Gods instructions to couples on how to live sacrificiallyfor each other and for their families. In a day when the world espouses a self-centered view of love, this book gives us the Bibles standards of love. It is a book that should be read by all couples seeking to know Gods plan for their marriage. -- Dennis Rainey, executive director, Family Life, Campus Crusade for Christ
Each for the Other is a scriptural treatment of the covenant of marriage as God designed it, with in-depth teaching on the meaning of sacrifice. . . . Chapell gracefully addresses the controversial subject of submission and authority and offers meaningful insights on parenting together as a couple. This would make a handy resource for pastors and others engaged in marital counseling, as well as married couples themselves. -- Christian Retailing, Jan. 1999
Each for the Other is one of the few indispensable books on marriage. Because of its biblical precision and practical sensitivity, it is sweetly radical and bracing. Here is the landscape of marriage as it ought to be. This is a book to read, re-read, and savor; a first class achievement. -- R. Kent Hughes, senior pastor, College Church in Wheaton
As I read Each for the Other I had the sense of finding something for which I had long looked. The church is in desperate need of a teaching tool to help Gods people build marriages that reflect the reality of His grace. I think this book is that tool. Bryan combines theological precision with tender practicality and passionately presents the need for and Gods provision of grace in our marriages. This book is a must-read for every married couple and for every person considering marriage -- Susan Hunt, author, director of Women in the Church, Presbyterian Church in America
Cant we both just get along? Chapell responds with a positive yes in this meaty resource that inspires couples to model Gods grace toward each other. Rather than offering cookie-cutter formulas or remedies, Chapell takes readers on an in-depth journey through Scripture to help them understand the oneness God intends for marriage. . . . This is an excellent tool for premarital counseling. Also recommend it to couples who desire to nurture their relationship and make it healthy and complete. -- Sherri Ballard, CBA Marketplace, Jan. 1999
In a culture that often depreciates or functionalizes the marriage relationship, Bryan Chapell calls Christian couples to live beyond themselves in living out the gospel for one another. By reminding a husband, for example, that headship has strings attached, and by encouraging a wife to honor her spouse not because of the goodness he possesses, but because of the grace he needs, this book invites both partners to commit themselves to becoming conduits of Gods sacrificial love for one another and for their children. Each for the Other is balanced, refreshing, practical, and thoroughly biblical. -- Nancy Groom, author, Married without Masks and Heart to Heart about Men
It is one thing to read the Bible or to quote the Bible; it is quite another to hear it and apply it. This book is a marvelous treatment of the biblical method for and teaching on the family that lives coram Deo. -- R. C. Sproul, author, theologian
Wielding his biblical scalpel with careful thoroughness, Bryan Chapell cuts to the heart of selfishness, irresponsibility, and abuse that mar so many supposedly Christian marriages today. More than that, he marks out the path of self-denying love in marriage with a firm hand, and provides discussion questions to ensure that couples who have read the book have grasped its message. This exposition can do nothing but good. -- J. I. Packer, author, theologian --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I am an extremely quick reader, and it took me a week to get through this (usually much thicker books I make time for in a few days tops). My fiance is much slower and it took him months to swallow the entire thing. Just as an indication.
But, as an engaged couple trying to get an idea of what biblical marriage looks like, and what marriage pitfalls to watch for. So far so good! Good book to have on hand to kinda refrence/catch-up on.
