Dr. Emerson Eggerichs - Love & Repsect
Offered for review by Book Sneeze
Based upon Ephesians 5:33 and extensive biblical and psychological research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs reveals the power of unconditional love and unconditional respect and how husbands and wives can reap the benefits of marriage that God intended.
This book was astonishing! My husband and I have been married for 12 years. We've had our share of ups and downs, that's for sure, but with the help of this book (and others like it) we're finally beginning to understand each other better. (Not that I think we will ever fully understand each other, besides, that would be boring!) There is a workbook that you can use as a tool to guide you and your spouse through the chapters and dive deeper into how each of you show and view love & respect. However, this book is a fantastic read with or without the workbook to guide you. It can be read by couples together to gain knowledge of one another, individuals looking to better understand their role in their marriage and what they themselves should be expecting or expressing, I would even recommend Love & Respect to engaged couples to get a head start or even singles who are looking for a complimentary companion to love or respect. I've been through marriage counselling (during some of my earlier years, darker years) and I have to say, I learned more in this one book than I could've in years of therapy! I give this book a FIVE STAR rating, without a doubt, read it and see for yourself!
