“How to Save A Troubled Marriage Biblically,” is an absolute must for anyone planning on marrying as well as for married couples already in a relationship. This book is a welcomed first because it is a Scripturally based, systemic psychiatric exercise and practical work for today’s men and women. Wisdom and the handling of crisis in ones life is all in the Holy Bible, but is highly dispersed, but here in this book it is easily found and applied in the appropriate manner. The author has fi ve fundamental themes fl owing through the text and they are: 1. Marriage is a covenant, not a contract, and was designed by God, 2. Whenever possible restoration of broken relationship is the major goal, 3. In marriage the husband seeks to meet the needs of his wife and the wife seeks to meet the needs of her husband, 4. The Holy Bible is the ultimate authority on effective relationships in particular marriage relationships, and 5. The Biblical pattern, for both husband and wife, is to sacrifi ce in order to pursue the satisfaction, joy and ultimate happiness of their spouse. And you will fi nd as in Proverbs 15:17, RSV, “A bowl of vegetables with someone you love is better than a steak with someone you hate.” God be with you and your spouse on your life-long loving and happy journey together. Well, here it is folks: read, meditate, and apply it and you too can be changed by God’s grace.
