Love and Respect for a Lifetime

I was a bit surprised upon receiving this book that it was a "gift book" with thick, colored, glossy pages, I guess I didn't read the description well enough to realize that. The quality of the book-cover, page thickness, layout, etc. was very, very nice; definitely a high quality gift book. However, I found the content, especially in the beginning 15 pages or so, to be highly repetitive. I felt like the love and respect for women and men respectively was repeated over and over and over throughout these pages, to the point of me not wanting to continue reading the book for fear that it was going to be more of the same thing, albeit with a different font and layout, and perhaps slightly different wording. Once I got through these pages, I found the ones with a bit more "meat" to them and variety in information provided to be good. Honestly, if I was going to purchase the book as a gift for someone, I would either tell them to skip the first few pages, where I felt like the same theme is repeated several times, or just purchase the whole "regular" book for them. For someone who doesn't like to read much, or a coffee table type book (although it is small to be that, a guest bathroom book might be more appropriate :) this would probably provide some nuggets of insight that might be helpful. For someone who actually enjoys reading, as I do, I'd stick with the 'unabridged' version by the same title.

Format: Hardcover
Love and Respect For a Lifetime, written by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs is a compilation of excerpts from his best-selling title Love and Respect, alongside Scripture quotations in a beautifully designed gift album edition. I loved how they made this entire book so easily read and beautiful, using creative design to highlight the truths so vital to a marriage that satisfies and brings joy to the couple and furthermore glory to the Lord - that being a husband needs to know he is unconditionally respected and a wife needs to know she is unconditionally loved (by each other).

Having been familiar with these marriage truths prior to my own wedding, I was eager to see how this gift edition would "measure up" to the real book. I was not disappointed. Even thought I will continue to highly recommend his original writing of Love and Respect, I will also be delighted to give this edition as a wedding gift to friends as well as to have in our own personal library for quick reference and reminder. I am so grateful for Dr. Eggerichs' teaching, taken straight from Scriptural teaching and years of marriage counseling, for how it has impacted my own view of marriage - particularly how I view and relate to my husband. I think this book is an excellent resource for wives like myself who desire to be more than simply their husband's lover, but also a true friend and companion, building him up to be the man of God the Lord has called him to be.

* I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

Be aware first and foremost this is a GIFT BOOK. Expect little bits of distilled wisdom from the Love and Respect book... don't expect a life-changing series of chapters or exercises. Think of it more as little nuggets of loving help for those who have already found some sort of balance in their marriage, or who have already read through the Love and Respect book together.

And is the book good? It depends on what you think of the author's thesis: that the deepest need of men is to be respected, and for women it is to feel loved. If these needs can be men, according to the author's point of view, a marriage will thrive, and craziness will be averted. I'd say that the people who will find this gift book to be the most helpful are those who have found the full book to be of benefit, and are looking for little "pick-me-ups" along the same lines.

What are the alternatives to this book? If you haven't read it yet, I would definitely recommend the excellent The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. But that's a full book with plenty of meat, not simply a gift book. Another is Olsen and Stephens' The Couple's Survival Workbook. That's even more intense and in-depth. But it could be the perfect gift for a hurting couple when problems abound. Either of these could be good gifts in a difficult marriage situation -- even though they aren't the standard "gift books."

Format: Hardcover
"Love and Respect" is a compact table-top edition that touches on what Dr. Eggerichs calls the two deepest needs of a woman and man, respectively, in a marital relationship. The cover tag line succinctly notes the simplicity in these two needs, but also the complexity in achieving them. A wife needs constant affirmation and love from her husband, and her husband needs to know the confidence, respect, and trust that only a wife can give him. The premise of the book is that when these two characteristics are present in a marriage, it has opportunity to flourish and deepen.

It appears this book is a summarized version of the full edition of "Love and Respect". One could read through several pages or a section of it and come away with some great wisdom and encouragements to help couples focus on each other's needs. I found some statements to be redundant throughout the book, but this could be simply to reinforce the message every way possible. The challenge with this is to not be so repetitive that you lose the impact and attention of the reader. One aspect of the book's readability I found to be a negative after a while was each page shifting in background color, font, font size, and contrast. The lack of design cohesiveness was distracting after reading more than a few pages. Stripes contrasted to floral grunge elements, etc. Despite these elements however, there is solid Biblical wisdom for marriages here, and anyone who takes to heart just a few of these principles would be better equipped to meet their spouse's needs. Without having read the full book, I would envision being more willing to recommend the hopeful full in-depth treatment that this edition would seem to echo.
