BOOK REVIEW: Love & Respect

Love & Respect – Thomas Nelson Publishers

ISBN: 1591451876

Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, president of Love and Respect Ministries, has taken the teachings from his seminars and put them into book format.

With three decades of experience, Dr. Eggerichs is committed to helping couples change the way they communicate and treat each other. He teaches breakthrough techniques and shows couples how to stop the crazy cycle of conflict and learn to reach new levels of intimacy. This book is based on the idea that a wife’s driving need is to feel loved, while a husband’s driving need is (NOT sex )– but to feel respected!

For many couples, respect is the missing piece of the puzzle and Dr. Eggerichs believes that the advice and techniques in his book will help marriages in all stages. He advises all couples who learn the techniques shared in Love and Respect to give it a six- week test. In that time frame, he suggests that couples will see how far they have come and how far they still have to go.

The first seven chapters of this book are devoted to breaking the “Crazy Cycle” that has thousands of married couples in its grip. Throughout the book, the author emphasizes that all married couples can apply the principles of Love & Respect and turn bad marriages into a good one – and a good marriage into a great one!

Emerson Eggerichs and his wife Sarah travel the country conducting the Love and Respect marriage conferences. Before launching Love and Respect Ministries, Emerson was senior pastor of Trinity Church in East Lansing, Michigan for nearly 20 years. Emerson received his B.A. in Biblical Studies and M.A. in Communications from Wheaton College and Graduate School. He was later awarded a Master of Divinity degree from Dubuque Seminary, and a Ph.D. in Child and Family Ecology from Michigan State University. Married since 1973, he and Sarah have three adult children. He is the president of Love and Respect Ministries and author of the best-selling book Love and Respect.
