Book Review: Real Marriage

I can’t begin to recommend this book enough.  You have likely heard some of the hype about them talking about Sex too much and going into subjects that Christians shouldn’t.  However, my stance is that when you read chapters 1-5 it changes how you see 6-10, especially 10.  In this book the Driscolls share very personal info about the trials and tests of their marital relationship over the years.  Mark is known for being a bit raw, but always speaking the truth as based in Scripture.  Very little opinion is given in this book an even when it is it is backed by several sources.  The end notes section of this book is quite lengthy.

I think anyone who is married, plans to be married, or used to be married should read this book.  There were sections that did not relate directly to my life, but they do give me an insight to situations friends have been in so that I can minister to them more effectively.  You will laugh your head off at parts of this book and turn red at others (especially if you grew up in a more conservative environment).

Many churches refuse to tak about sex, which leaves most Christians to search answers from the world.  Again I will say, the chapters on se are meaningless if you cannot grasp the chapters on marriage, that is why they come first in the book.
