When I accepted Christ a year before my husband things were so rough that year it's clearly by the Grace of God we made it through... this book made things much clearer to me, much more understandable to bear. It helped me to know how to react to him, and how to act around him as well as understanding why he reacted to me certain ways or why he acted a certain way ; how things could be misconstrued or misunderstood. This book was a lifeline for me that year.
If you are a Christian and your spouse isn't, this is probably a great book for you. Not until well into the book did Lee discuss couples that are both Christians but one is content with going to church once a week if there is nothing else to do, or content with the milk of babes instead of longing for meat.

I took a quick read of this book while I was up in Minnesota seeing my family. I have to say though I don't agree with all of Strobel's views I still found it to be worth reading and encouraging.

I read the book prior to my husband becoming a Christian and found it incredibly encouraging and helpful to my life at the time. Highly recommend to couples in the same situation.
Didn't survive. Unfortunately, if the unbeliever decides to leave the marriage, not much you can do when they keep hardening their heart against you.
This was an excellent read before my husband was saved. So thankful that he is now! I have lent and recommended this join to several others as well!

Very good, lots of encouragement for anyone in this tempted to share with my husband, but know that would be a mistake 8-)
Very insightful book - Lee did a great great writing this book, almost as good s hearing him speak at church.
started this a long time ago and never finished... would like to re-read and finish!
Good reminder to treat others the way I want to be treated, most importantly my partner.
Another awesome book on the struggles of being married to a non-Christian.........
