Marriage Resource Books

God created marriage in his perfect world, before Adam and Eve fell into sin.  He designed it, and it is a blessing.  However, when sin entered the world it affected everything, including marriage.  People are not perfect, and people do not have perfect marriages.  The resources below were written with a Biblical perspective on marriage in the hopes of helping husbands and wives better understand each other and the marriage relationship.  While no book aside from the Bible is perfect, many Christians have found these books helpful in their marriages.  ***Please note that if the book is not from Northwestern Publishing House or Time of Grace Ministries it may include phraseology that promotes decision theology, aka "accepting Christ into your heart."  However, Scripture clearly states and we believe that God chose us (1 Peter 2:9) and that faith is a gift from God (Ephesians 2:8-9).  Please read with a discerning eye, and contact our pastors if you have any questions.

Love & Respect by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs

The title of this book comes from Ephesians 5:33:  "[A husband] must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband."  The author explains that when a wife feels unloved in a marriage and a husband feels disrespected, then conflict ensues.  By following God's instructions about loving and respecting husbands and wives can change bad habits, communicate better, and become closer.
