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!
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!
This book is a good start to a healthy Christian Marriage!!
The book covers areas from 'the art of communication' to 'good sex', and gives couples practical tools to really enrich their marriage.
It is a really great manual for how to improve your relationships and yourself as a person, let alone your marriage.
There is a lot of religious content to this, but I would recommend it to people of all or none faiths.
It is easy to read and understand, and the authors talk about their own experiences in addition to real life case studies.
I pretty much guarantee that you will get something from reading this book.
Although I was apprehensive flicking through the first few pages, thinking it maybe impersonal or even patronising, it has actually proved to be the opposite! There are things that may appear obvious to any relationship within this book, however I believe this has been valuable insight into marriage life and will certainly come in handy throughout my forthcoming marriage and beyond. It talks about communication, resolving conflict, understanding differences and much much more!
Its not just interesting insight from the Authors relationship experiences, but others too and some very nice quotes from famous peoples marriages.
If anything, it reminds me how much I value my fiancée and for that alone it gets a 5* rating!

Horrendous. This book is 5 star, but if you didn't read the small print you wouldn't see that it is five star in Christian education. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Katherine Voyle
