    As I prepare to go into marriage, this book both encouraged and challenged me The author doesn t shy away from the hard stuff, and I appreciated his honesty and lack of fluff and BS throughout the book He laid out an incredibly thorough and detailed framework for building a Godly marriage, including addressing the hard stuff that will happen, and so much of what he said is applicable to all relationships This book revealed so much to me about the true meaning of marriage, and I m so glad As I prepare to go into marriage, this book both encouraged and challenged me The author doesn t shy away from the hard stuff, and I appreciated his honesty and lack of fluff and BS throughout the book He laid out an incredibly thorough and detailed framework for building a Godly marriage, including addressing the hard stuff that will happen, and so much of what he said is applicable to all relationships This book revealed so much to me about the true meaning of marriage, and I m so glad that I decided to read this before getting married This is definitely a book I want my fianc to read and a book I ll come back to during my marriage I d highly recommend to other engaged people couples

    I have a love hate relationship with this book It is insightful and challenging Working through the study questions for each chapter was revealing and at times made me want to throw it out the window Every married couple should work through this together.

    This is one of the most challenging book I have read related to marriage and is likely the reason I enjoy my marriage today Crabb s core thesis is that the reason most marriages struggle is that the partners are looking for the other person to meet or needs, to fill up a void in our lives that only God can fill This book calls us to trust God to meet our core needs, and out of that dependence to choose to love, serve, and sacrifice for our spouse I know that when I keep this in mind, that I This is one of the most challenging book I have read related to marriage and is likely the reason I enjoy my marriage today Crabb s core thesis is that the reason most marriages struggle is that the partners are looking for the other person to meet or needs, to fill up a void in our lives that only God can fill This book calls us to trust God to meet our core needs, and out of that dependence to choose to love, serve, and sacrifice for our spouse I know that when I keep this in mind, that I am a better husband to my wife Crabb challenged my assumption that my wife was going to somehow complete me , but rather encouraged me to consider her a companion on a journey Many of the principles which Crabb applies to marriage are equally true in other relationships

    I loved this book Add me to Larry Crabb s fan club because I ve never read a book of his that I didn t love This is without a doubt the best marriage book I have ever read Butthan that, the themes in this book are key for living the Christian life, not just for the Christian marriage Even if you are not struggling in your marriage, you should read this book I was truly encouraged and got a bit of a wake up call Sometimes I really do live with myself at the center of my life But when I loved this book Add me to Larry Crabb s fan club because I ve never read a book of his that I didn t love This is without a doubt the best marriage book I have ever read Butthan that, the themes in this book are key for living the Christian life, not just for the Christian marriage Even if you are not struggling in your marriage, you should read this book I was truly encouraged and got a bit of a wake up call Sometimes I really do live with myself at the center of my life But when Jesus is in the center, I can give and minister to my husband because that s what I ve been called to do Not because I m expecting something in return

    After recently getting married, my wife and I joined a book study at our local church We joined four other couples and read a chapter from The Marriage Builder every week then returned with our thoughts At first, the book seemed very promising Our lead couple from the study swore by the book s insights and it seemed like the testimonies within the book were solid as well As we dove into it, the writing was phenomenal, but analogies and illustrations got to be ridiculous The Platform of Trut After recently getting married, my wife and I joined a book study at our local church We joined four other couples and read a chapter from The Marriage Builder every week then returned with our thoughts At first, the book seemed very promising Our lead couple from the study swore by the book s insights and it seemed like the testimonies within the book were solid as well As we dove into it, the writing was phenomenal, but analogies and illustrations got to be ridiculous The Platform of Truth was strange, but what takes the cake is the Spirit Oneness chapter featuring the stick man swinging from the Cliff of Safety and hanging tightly onto God from the Rope of Love in hopes of not falling into the Abyss of Rejection It looked like a twisted, spiritual take of Hangman Discussing with the other couples, we all knew what the point was getting at, but was hard to get past such a bizarre illustration.There s several points to each chapter In the last chapter, we started getting restless from point after point after point, with some points adding in sub points We were lost.After finishing the book, the book seems to hit homewhen my spouse and I get into a disagreement From that aspect, the book helps with reminding ourselves to minister to one another and have that security and significance with Christ If anything the book drives home, that s someone we can take away from it Thebumps our marriage experiences, my hope is the advice will resonate

    Up to now, I have loved every book I have read from Larry Crabb However, for some reason, this one didn t really touch me as usual I felt like most of the things he said were things that I already knew Maybe I have been reading too much about this topic to the point I feel I have already over heard all these things or maybe the fact I am not married and because of it, didn t mean much Although, I do have a relationship and I could partly relate To me, when reading, I felt like I needed to k Up to now, I have loved every book I have read from Larry Crabb However, for some reason, this one didn t really touch me as usual I felt like most of the things he said were things that I already knew Maybe I have been reading too much about this topic to the point I feel I have already over heard all these things or maybe the fact I am not married and because of it, didn t mean much Although, I do have a relationship and I could partly relate To me, when reading, I felt like I needed to know or be guided in how to get to the place where Crabb was pointing How do you transferred from desiring my partner to meet my needs to meeting my needs in Christ I didn t experience this transition expressed in the book and that left me a little disappointing Maybe my heart wasn t in the right place, but nevertheless, read it for yourself for I know that the Lord can use many men to help us and lead us closer to him and I believe Crabb is one of those men

    Had some very helpful concepts and frameworks, especially the contrast between ideas and goals that the author used throughout the book At times it seemed a little closer to nouthetic counseling ideas than I m comfortable with, but overall I felt like it was a solid book with helpful advice.


  9. Shelley Shelley says:

    I m giving this 5 stars because the ideas are so different from what the typical marriage book promotes The info seems like it could lead to muchsignificant change in interaction between spouses if these concepts are applied by both Not easy but worthwhile.


  10. Dana Dana says:

    One of the best marriage books I have read so far as Crabb gets to meat of issues we have in marriage, with ourselves, and with God.
