A Couple After God's Own Heart

Cafe Lily's Review:

Well known Christian authors and speakers, Jim and Elizabeth George have a new book and companion workbook for couples who want to improve their marriage.  I really like that this study centers around biblical couples, using examples such as Adam & Eve, Jacob & Rachel, Aquila & Priscilla and others.  There's a couple for everyone to relate to in this book.

Each chapter has some unique applications such as "lessons for the husband" (or the wife) that pertain to the lesson characters.  The first part of the book focuses on these biblical couples and their story, along with  various ways to put it all together and apply the points in each chapter.  Some of the chapters have questions for self reflection as well.

The second part of the book has a special section which is titled "Thirty Days of Growing Together". This part of the book has devotional readings, for couples to work on.  The companion workbook has lessons to accompany each chapter, which are broken down into five parts, to make the study more manageable for busy couples. Both the book and the workbook are written in an easy to read manner, and couples need only to carve out a few minutes of time to do the lessons together.  I like that the study is easy and geared to help couples spend time together, without bogging them down with tons of "homework".
