Review

This was a truly interesting book. While I knew about some of these married couples from the bible, I definitely did not know all ow these. I also was grossly misinformed to many of the issues that these couples dealt with and what they had to teach me as a man and as a husband. The book was very informative and down to earth, You get a great mix of biblical teaching as well as counseling that you can put into practice immediately. This was a great book that was a quick read, but one that has really stayed with me since I read through it!

The Top 10 Most Outrageous Couples of the Bible – David Clarke – Publication Date: June 1, 2014 – 9781628366532– Barbour Publishing, Inc.– Electronic ARC - 5 Stars
I absolutely loved reading this book. I enjoyed how the author picked the top ten couples from the bible, ran through their situation, showed how each person in the relationship played a part in their story and then showed how each story may relate to and help other married couples.
Not only do I think this is an excellent book for couples to read together, it is also a book for singles; especially singles who are hoping, searching, courting or waiting for God to send them a mate.
I have to admit that while reading the bible, not every one of these married stories intrigued or even interested me, however, after reading this book and the context in which the stories are presented, I found something interesting in each.
These stories only reiterate to those who ask God to send them a mate but think they can change things or flip the script once they do, that without following God's plan there are sure to be problems. It also further supports the roles that husbands and wives have in their marriage. At the end of each story, the author has included an exercise for couples that can help them get to know each other better and become closer.
One of my favorite chapters in the book is Chapter 8, "Don't Get a Divorce Unless You Have a Good Reason." In today's times, with an increase love of power and money, the influx of social media and the need for everyone to know, divorce is looked upon in the same way the loss of thirty pounds is; a great accomplishment. No one wants to work at relationships anymore and at the first sign of a disagreement or hurt feelings, couples are ready to split.

I received this book through Goodreads First Read give away. This was a wonderful book with many lessons from the different imperfect couples from scriptures. There were lots of lessons that could be applied to today's world and there were also exercises that were included to help you along as you tried to follow the lessons you'd learned. I've read the book and now my wife and I are trying to utilize these exercises to grow closer. This would be an excellent book for a marriage small group or for a couple trying to learn biblical marriage lessons. I would encourage anyone who's done the Art of Marriage to check out this book for a good follow up.

The 10 most 'outrageous' couples in the Bible is a great marketing sound byte, obviously selling better than 'dysfunctional and problematic'. Christian pyschologist, counseler and promiscuous David Clarke's latest book The Top 10 Most Outrageous Couples of the Bible is meant as a collection of illustrations to provide Christian teachings on relationship building, unity, dealing with sins hindering a marriage, sexuality in and outside marriage.
While the perfect biblical marriage illustration comes from Jesus Christ and His bride, the Church, that one example isn't used at all. So, expect a lot of mistakes, rudeness, abuse, bullying, etc. from the 10 chosen couples, reaching from Adam & Eve, Abraham & Sarah, Isaac & Rebecca, Jacob & Rachel & Leah up to Joseph & Mariah. Others could have beend included with ease, e.g. Job & his wife, Elkana & Penina & Hannah. Human characters you can relate to and learn from. A great deal is spent on the Song of Songs, in which Clarke assumes King Solomon & his first wife, Shulamite to be the nearly perfect couple, having good conversations, foreplay and intercourses, plus a few misses and distractions as well. The 999 other women in the King's Castle are kept out of this book.
Clarke writes with lots of humor and personal illustrations as well, carefully carving out the real intimate details. He's radical on divorce, sin and forgiveness. Be prepared. If you didn't get any pre-marriage education in your church, this is a great book to dive into. And if you have been married for some time, it's a good set of biblical marriage lessons as well to treasure your threefold convenant.

I'm surprised this book doesn't have more reviews! I just finished reading it and it was a wonderful experience. I'm newly engaged (almost two months), so this book was really helpful to me in regards of finding out what mistakes to avoid and what aspects to incorporate into my soon-to-be marriage. It's broken up into three sections: The Good & The Bad; The Bad; The Good. Each chapter gives an overview of the couple's 'love story' as detailed and described in the Holy Bible. The mistakes the couples made are detailed and explained in a tone that is modern and relatable to today's culture. Tips and suggestions for how to avoid those mistakes (i.e. failing to work as a team, lack of communication, choosing children over your spouse) are given and easily applicable to everyday life. I really enjoyed reading the book and appreciated how 'advice' on growing spiritually as a couple/individually given and the chapter entirely on submission and the chapter entirely on leadership is provided. (Not too many books include these three areas, so it was great reading/learning and being refreshed.) The book supplies readers with reflection questions at the end of the chapter to provide readers with topics to influence communication in the marriage relationship. (i.e. "Husband, ask your wife.." and vice versa.) The book was really straightforward and an easy read.

A previous reviewer noted how the relationship of Jesus Christ and the Church isn't included. That is so, but I believe the purpose behind why their relationship doesn't have a chapter of its own is because that relationship is discussed throughout all 66 books of the Bible.
