5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a must for any married couple. 18 April 2002
By A Customer
The Marriage Book is full of very practical advice and useful tools to help build a strong and healthy relationship.
In the book Nicky and Sila Lee take a look at all the key areas of marriage such as communication, resolving conflict, forgiveness, parents and in-laws, good sex and understanding your differences. Their style is immensely readable and each subject is illustrated with great stories and wonderful cartoons. They also speak honestly from their own experiences from 25 years of marriage.
The book is based on Christian principles for marriage but I would highly recommend it to anyone whether they would call themselves Christian or not. The advice given is very practical.
I have bought this book for all my friends who have got engaged and I would recommend it to any married couple however long or short they have been together. A great read!

Few subjects (with the possible exception of sex) must have generated so many books and advice and they keep coming. Although I have to confess to reading little on marriage, of all the books I have read this is quite the best. Its provenance is the Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB) stable in London, home and pioneer of the Alpha Course: indeed Nicky Lee, who co-authors the book with his wife Sila, used to run Alpha at HTB.
The Lees have now been running The Marriage Course at HTB for the last four years and already many couples have found their marriages enriched by it. The Marriage Book is the book which underpins the course, a seven week programme during which couples are guided through key topics such as the art of communication, resolving conflict, the power of forgiveness and good sex. Neither the book nor the course is preachy and there is no attempt to evangelise: however, it would take a very distant couple not to realise the Christian underpinnings. For instance, the subject and practice of praying together is given important treatment.
A major theme is communication and time together. How much do married couples need to hear that, with all today's distractions and pressures. Nicky Gumbel concludes in his forward to the book: "While reading this book, you may feel that the Lees' marriage is 'too good to be true', but having observed it for over twenty-four years, let me assure you that it is entirely true and that it inspires us to aim for the very best." At a time when marriage is under such attack, this book is timely and deserves to be on many bookshelves and pillows!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading for first time tips or a refresher! 19 July 2005
By A Customer
I was bought this book as an engagement present and it had proved to be an invaluable tool. Not only do I understand my partner and the way he expresses himself and communicates, but also I learned things which are helping me to prepare for the commitment of marriage.
This book is a good start to a healthy Christian Marriage!!

5.0 out of 5 stars very useful book 16 Mar 2009
By Anne E
Such a good read that I bought two more to give away. A sensible and very helpful series of chapters on all aspects of married life. Suitable for all age groups, from those preparing for marriage, those having a rocky time and also those who want to enrich the experience of married life. Down to earth aproach with lots of practical ideas. Encouraging even for those of us who have been married for several decades!

5.0 out of 5 stars A long-awaited practical book on marriage 19 April 2002
By A Customer
In a changed society where twenty somethings are nervous about marriage, this is a refreshing book showing really practical ways in which everyone, young or old, can work at their marriage to make it a last a lifetime.
The book covers areas from 'the art of communication' to 'good sex', and gives couples practical tools to really enrich their marriage.

5.0 out of 5 stars A marriage tool kit in a book! 18 Mar 2014
As Tania West author of Just a Piece of Paper?: Why commitment is the new aphrodisiac comments: This is a step by step guide to getting the right habits and practices in place that will ensure that you have the resources you need to create a lasting marriage. The Marriage Book literally is a took kit for marriage that focuses on getting the right foundations in place, communicating effectively, re-negotiating relationships with in-laws and how to practically go about letting go of hurts and disappointments that can so easily accumulate and create barriers in relationships. Although written from a Christian perspective, this book has practical and insightful advice and principles to offer all couples whatever their background or beliefs.
