Top Customer Reviews
I expected this to be a surface-level "christian book," with little practical advice and a lot of good-sounding fluff. Not even close!
In this book, Walter Trobisch narrates the conversations he has and lectures/sermons he gives over the course of a week in Africa. The many different troubles couples experience in the book cover many of the possible problems seen in a typical marriage. The explanations he gives of how God designs marriage - what it means to leave, cleave and become one flesh - really make it clear what my role is as a spouse.
Until reading this book, I had no clear understanding of what it looks like to be a wife (or husband). What is my goal? What balance do we take in terms of being ourselves / being a couple? What do we do when it seems impossible? Why should I put in the effort to resolve conflict?
Now I know. I now feel confident that I am able to continually become a better wife for my husband, that when I have no strength I know what I want God to help me with, and that it is possible for a broken person like me to be a good wife for my lover.
Especially in a world where many marriages fail, where people give up too quickly, where we receive very little support from our families and friends, and where we have few examples of healthy marriage, this book is necessary.
A requirement for engaged couples everywhere. A necessary example for married couples everywhere. This book is so universal and honest, I cannot fault it in any way.
