Shelves: religion
This is a difficult book to review. I can't say that I loved the book itself. It's filled with shallow, amateurish theological statements and trite and/or stretched analogies. However, my now-fiance and I did have some very meaningful conversations that were provoked by the book, some of them even inspired by how poorly the authors had covered some of the subjects. So, I'd give the book itself a rather low rating...that I'll bump up because I actually think that, in a perhaps unintended way, the ...more

This book has given me quite an interesting mix of feelings. The book itself has some gems that became devalued and overlooked by moments of bad theology, strained analogies, shallow biblical readings, unwelcome opinions, and just ill-fitting illustrations. It definitely didn't seem like this book was written to young urban Christians. Our dating group that was reading this together had to start each meeting by clearing out everything we hated about the last chapter, but also in all of the disco ...more

Hard to get through. But good topics to focus on.

I like the format: about two pages of daily reading for Monday through Friday, then 6-10 questions to discuss on Saturday. I didn't like the content of all of the daily messages - some of it was great, some of it was boring, and some of it I just didn't agree with. We had talked about a lot of the questions before just in regular conversation, but it was neat to have a focused discussion every week.

Recommends it for: serious couples
Tony and I went through this book before we got married. It did exactly what it said--helped up build a solid foundation. We are always looking for a couples-devotional book that measures up to this one, but we haven't found one yet.

Really great devotional for couples! I especially like that you read the short daily devotionals by yourself during the week and come together on the weekend to read a devotion together with discussion questions! Highly Recommend!

While I disagree with some of the theology in the book, overall I found it helpful as a reflection and discussion device. My fiance's proposal even stemmed from a discussion based upon one particular chapter, so for that alone, it was a worthwhile read.

Definitely very inspiring, convicting, and helpful. May however be geared more towards those new to their faith. None the less it was very eye opening in a couple areas to me and each weeks study seemed to be quite relevant to the events in my life.

This was a great devotional, and good way to connect- good discussion topics.

We are going through it again. Want to get our money's worth, right?

It's very elementary. The lessons here seem to be for people who have less than a rudimentary understanding of what God wants for our lives. There was only chapter I found helpful.
