My husbabd and I have been married 25 years and we absolutely love this couple's devotional. We ordered 2 more for gifts!
It develops intimacy between us because it causes us to answer some revealing questions to each other everyday.
We planned to just go crazy and have fun during the first year of our marriage, to "taste and see that the world is good." But nightlight has kept is grounded in our Christian faith while still enjoying the honeymoon phase of our new love.
Let me tell you where I am coming from...I am a 35 year old married Christian man, married for 13 years with two kids. I love James Dobson and think he is one of the best Christian thinkers out there, especially when it comes to family. Bringing Up Girls and Bringing Up Boys are fantastic, must-read books. I financially support FotF (still do, even since James left there).
I preface with this so my criticism of this book has some context. I, actually we, did not like this devotional very much. We have owned it for over a year now and we have not finished the book (probably about 3/4 through). It is not a devotional we looked forward to doing together. The book has a lot going for it but, to me, suffers from a fatal flaw: the questions that are listed after each daily devotion, which are meant to create interaction and discussion with your spouse. They are just so rhetorical and not thought-provoking at all, plus they seem to have a slant geared towards newer Christians/couples. It got annoying to the point that we have become cynical about doing this devotion.
There are good stories told by James and Shirley in this book that are worth reading. And my greatest praise of this book are the brief prayers listed after each daily devotion, usually about 1 or 2 sentences long. Dr. Dobson is able to say some very profound and insightful prayers in very few words. I just wish the discussion questions had the same level of insightfulness.
In summary, I do not recommend this book as a couple's devotional. While it has good stories and insightful prayers to read each day, the purpose of the devotional (grow in deeper relationship as husband and wife through a deepening relationship with Jesus) was lacking at the most important point of interaction.
