This is a wonderful book. It is honest, refreshing, practical, and above all biblical. These carefully written pages spill over with truth and grace. This book is liberating, Christ-centered and hope-filled, pointing the way to God-empowered marriage. --Randy Alcorn
Dave Harvey not only offers a biblical diagnosis of marital strife, but prescribes the cure as well - the gospel. When Sinners Say "I Do" provides clarity in conflict, hope in despair, and points the way to a joy-filled, God glorifying marriage. --C.J. Mahaney

In contrast to the price the content of the book has limitless value because it tells the truth about who I'm married to and more importantly who I am.
Have you ever stollen something, ever? Me too. Gum when I was 4-5. Probably since then too.
Have you ever lied? Who hasn't? I know I have. There are 8 more commandments and I have broken all of them in my heart if not out right.
That makes me a sinner and the bible says a sinner cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. If it is not heaven there is no other option but hell. Jesus Christ never sinned but he died so that he might take that guilt and penalty. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23 ESV) For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16 ESV)
When I stand before God as my judge it will be as if someone stepped in the courtroom and paid my fine and the judge lets me go free.
Once we understand this and confess that we have sinned and ask Jesus to save us not only does it change our eternal destiny it changes everything on this planet and the way we approach it. Christ died and suffered for me and my spouse. But we are still sinners and this book will help to deal with sin and make our marriage more like the relationship we have with God as a sinner redeemed.
Although, I don't embrace the chapters on sex and pinpointing your spouse's sin as readily, the remainder of the books is beautiful. I felt so moved by reading and working through the book with a counselor that I really began examining my role in church, as this book was so rich and fulfilling.
There are many beautiful references to teaching of the Charles Spurgeon and others I remember listening to with my father when I was a wee lad. The portion related to the fruits of the spirit were so touching.
I recommend this book to all that are willing to lay aside prejudice and have a new experience.
