This book helped me to see that the biggest threat to my marriage lies within. When I insist on building up my "kingdom" rather than submitting to the just rule and plans of His kingdom, my marriage will be in trouble. But when my wife and I, instead, give up on our "kingdoms" and truly seek to participate in the building up of His kingdom, He will do an awesome work both in and through our marriage.
Buy this book. Read it WITH your spouse. Prayerfully read it with an open heart and mind and God will use this book to open your eyes to the areas where you need to be reminded of His grace.
We tried several others, but none of them really jived with who we were and the struggles we were experiencing.
The first 13 months of our marriage were really difficult, I think it was partly because we were so different, and partly because we were so sinful at heart. We ended up in a small group from a church where they were going through this book, and it changed our marriage (as cliche as that sounds).
This book deals with the heart, and how wickedly evil it can be if you're going to be really honest with yourself. It really helped us to see our weaknesses, and in light of Christ "when I am weak, then I am strong."
The stories in it are kind of cheesy and long winded at times, but I think they help get the point across.
I can't recommend it enough, and I'm going to buy it for my newly married friends (along with a fun gift).
