The predominant message in our culture is that it's okay to have sex whenever, wherever, and however we want. Sex has become just sex. But while society has taken sex too far, the church hasn't taken it far enough.

God wants couples to make love in marriage-with passion, with purpose, and with pleasure. Marriages aren't experiencing all the benefits that come from a healthy

There really is nothing here I haven't seen many times before.

I think it was 2008 when churches started issuing "30 day sex challenges" to their congregations. This book show no awareness that it's following, less ambitiously, in their footsteps.

The seven-days-of-sex thing, by the way, isn't exactly integral to the book; it's just something they keep bringing up -- "the challenge" -- but there's never a point in the book where I feel like there's a clear vision or plan for how those seven days s

What I got the most out of this book was the needed reminder that marriage is about service and giving. I needed that reminder. It is easy to fall into comfortable patterns with your spouse. That doesn't mean that "comfortable" is necessarily bad, it just means that sometimes we need the reminder to not take our Spouses for granted. I don't necessarily agree with Mr. Young on everything he says, like about half of the Ten Commandments of Marriage, but I ca

If you want to have a good understanding of the point of this book, read the last three pages. Seriously. Although the concepts it covers are very basic, it could be a good reminder of some important relational truths. However, there were two things that bugged me about this book. 1. There are several instances where he covers the same concept over and over again. Sometimes in almost identical wording. 2. It is filled with annoying little cliches, silly puns and irrelevant stories from his ...more

This was an interesting read. It's about more than has a lot of great insight on how to have a stronger marriage! Glad I read it, and my hubby read it too!!

I really appreciated this book - obviously my husband and I felt the need to read it otherwise, it'd be a little pointless. It had a lot of good points in the beginning - mainly remembering now to let yourself go after marriage, romance needs to stay alive, creativity is good - don't be stagnant in what/how you interact, etc. I didn't always agree with some of the things the author says and having it be from a Christian view was a little uncomfortable at first (even though I'm a Christian - none ...more

There isn't anything in this book that you haven't heard before. Marriage is about giving. It's about the other person, not self. It's a covenant. Emotional intimacy can't be had without physical intimacy. Prioritize the sex and reap the rewards.

This book is amazing! Ed and Lisa young have hit the proverbial nail on the head with this one.

I recommend it for all married couples, couples engaged, and singles.

As a member of Fellowship Church I'm so blessed to be able to hear Ed speak weekly. This boom will let you know why.

Well written book with the premise that 7 striaght days of sex with your spouse will draw you closer in a Oneness relationship - what God intended. Plainly written with biblical references and stories from the author who is a pastor.

This is a great marriage book! How could sex for a week straight not draw you closer to your spouse?

This book was quite informative and insightful. Unfortunately I am not quite at this stage in my life and it wasn't quite what I was expecting. I did a lot of skimming.

I read this book a couple of times as it was written by the Pastors of my church. I recommend this book to everyone; whether you are in a relationship or thinking about someday being in one.

This was advertised on Good Day Atlanta today and looks awesome! This couple is in a bed on the top of a church in Texas talking about this book.
