If you are married and are in ministry (and I don't care how long you've been doing it), then this little book has solid thoughts for you. My wife and I have been in ministry together (dating or married) for over 10 years. We've had lots of mentoring and school, and this book still helped.
Jake and Melissa break it down into 5 parts: "Marriage Basics, Balancing Marriage and Ministry, Finances, The Church vs. Your Family, and "The Darker Side of the Church." I found the last three sections to be especially helpful. Even though my wife and I have worked through many of these issues already, this book provided new and helpful perspective.
At five dollars, what have you got to lose? One good piece of advice is worth more than that, and there many good pieces here!
