Description

Marriage is God’s idea. He planned it. He designed it. And if you follow His blueprint, it will be more rewarding, more loving, more exciting than you ever imagined.

In 10 Commandments of Marriage, Dr. Ed Young shares the “thou shalts” and the “thou shalt nots” of successful relationships – straight from the pages of God’s Word. Long-married couples will find love-building precepts that will revive a failing marriage and make a great relationship even better. Soon-to-be-marrieds will discover what marriage is all about, and gain priceless insights into starting on solid ground.

In words that are profound, often humorous, but always biblical, Dr. Young draws from decades of counseling couples to provide 10 commandments for a lifelong marriage that sizzles. God wants your marriage to be nothing short of incredible. And it could begin with this amazing book.

According to Beth Moore (bestselling author and speaker), “The 10 Commandments of Marriage not only tells you ‘what.’ Thankfully, it tells you ‘how.’ Ed Young has taken the principles of Scripture and has had the courage to test them on the linoleum glued to average life on planet earth.”

My Review

I absolutely loved this book and I recommend it to anyone who is in a relationship or plans to be in one at some point. I am sure I will be turning back to it time and again. It is well written, contains relevant stories and comparisons and most definitely ties the biblical teachings into the message.

While I don’t think you need to be a Christian to benefit from this book I do believe that Christians would benefit most from it because of the biblical references. We are shown time and again throughout the bible how a marriage should and shouldn’t be and Ed Young ties all of that information together, simplifies it, and makes it applicable to you and me.

I definitely recommend this book and because I received and e-copy for the purpose of review that isn’t “finalized” it will be in my shopping cart soon!

I don’t often give “glowing reviews” but this book energized me spiritually and showed me where I need to work on myself to be the best I can be for my partner.
