While this book was thought provoking, I felt that its main purpose was to provide more resources to read. This is not exactly the reason I read a book. On the positive side, it provides thought-provoking material and concrete subjects that any international couple should consider. This is written with a specific christian audience in mind, and thus it may have limited use for the non-christian intercultural couple.

Marla’s easy writing style is inviting and her informative chapters will keep you reading. She provides a great wealth of information for Christians on intercultural marriage. I know this would be a great book to give to any of your newly wed friends or soon to be wed friends. Thanks Marla for providing an innovative and much needed resource for couples!
