Reviews - What do our customers think?
"Intimate Allies"  Nov 30, 1999
I am a Pastor and I give this book as a gift to newleyweds. I have found it to be very down-to-earth, not like some of the "how-to-stay-in-love" marriage manuals, but rather focused on serving together - looking at the larger world together - making your relationship strong by being accountable, etc. I LOVE the "communal" focus, making marriage part of the network of society instead of just "me & you babe". I like everything that Dan Allender writes. Filled with insight and practical wisdom.
 
Tedious and pompous  Nov 30, 1999
My wife and I got this book to read together. With kids grown and life stagnating a bit, we thought we could breathe a little fire back into our lives, following a Godly path to do so. I wish we had looked here first. We made a commitment to do it, and we did. But we did not feel much enlightened by either the content or the analysis.

There is indeed way too much padding in this book. Common, but still annoying. Especially when the core idea, the notion that marriage must reflect the Christ-mankind relationship, and we honor our spouses to honor God, is a lovely idea. But the characters drawn in here feel like cardboard versions of Hollywood movie characters, shadows of Plato's cave-dwelling shadows. Not only do they not sound real (I hope to goodness they are composites) but their resolutions are as lame and sickly as the end of a 22 minute sitcom.

Maybe in a seminar, where they express their ideas and don't get bogged down, this might work. But for self-study, we found it tedious and irritating, full of non-sequiturs, implausible story lines, and windy analysis. We'll go back to the source next time.
 
This book sucks  Nov 30, 1999
I think that says it all. Don't waste your time or money.
 
A lot of good marital insight for any couple  Nov 30, 1999
I found as I read, laughed and cried with this book that I identified with many of the characters and scenarios. I appreciate Dr. Allender and Dr. Longman's styles as they are honest and up front about the culture, soul and text. They are not hiding behind Christian propaganda in this book but are nothing short of real. 3/4 into the book you have the idea of the script, but overall it is a very good text I have recommended to several couples.
 
Great book to read as a couple  Nov 30, 1999
Great book to read as a couple. We use it in for a couples group at our church bacause it is very easy to identify with the men and women in the stories and beacause it teaches sound Biblical principles of marriage.
