Item Description...
In Marriage: From Surviving to Thriving, Dr. Charles Swindoll examines what God intended for married couples to experience and enjoy.

When you think of marriage, what immediately comes to mind? Do you see it as sacred covenant, a joyous, intimate, and fulfilling relationship for you and your spouse? Or is your marriage part of the majority wallowing in frustration and barely surviving?

In a day when half of all marriages fail, we need insight that stands the test of time. In Marriage: From Surviving to Thriving, readers find what God intended for married couples to experience and enjoy. With insight, wisdom, and teaching drawn from the Bible, and anecdotes from his 50+ year marriage to Cynthia, Dr. Swindoll shows readers how to transform their union from a lackluster contract to an intimate and exciting relationship.

Publishers Description

The world has changed, and it's going to keep changing.

That's no big revelation, but we cling to the fleeting hope that we can return to the gentler, more stable days gone by . . . especially where our marriages are concerned. But the truth is, we can't, because as the world changes, so do we, and so do our marriages.

Let's face it: marriage and the home have altered drastically through the years. Men afraid to be men. Women ashamed of being women. Children unsure of who's in charge. Blended and not-so-well-blended families. Homes that have become battlegrounds. And all of it so unstable, so temporary.

In the face of these depressing facts, beloved pastor and Bible teacher Chuck Swindoll offers a refreshing dose of hope and practical help for marriage. His sage advice, based on the Bible and his own fifty-year marriage, shows us how to move our marriages from just surviving to actually thriving. And that target can be hit dead-center if we rely on God and His Word as our marriage counselor, our guide, our glue.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Swindoll's helpful textual advice is positively infectious.  Jun 5, 2007
Best known for his lively speaking/teaching style, Charles R. Swindoll brings yet another solid resource of encouragement and positive challenge to Christian men and women. As a prolific author, pastor and on-air radio personality, Swindoll has captivated audiences for many years. In a society where the success rate of Christian marriages is no better than their non-believing counterparts, longevity is not the only marital touch-point worth discussing.

Swindoll skillfully details the societal hazards and trends of the day that undermine the marriage relationship. As is his custom, he manages to turn a dismal set of statistics into a forum for positive, hopeful change. With his homespun wisdom, he lays down the gauntlet for taking back the territory given over to the self-indulgence, self-sufficiency and self-securing tendencies that have deprived individuals, families and society at large of redemptive role models for far too long. According to the author, when the health of the family declines be warned because society as a whole follows.

Swindoll begins his text by offering an insightful look at today's world and how different the challenges are now than when he was young. Having been married to the same woman for over 51 years, the father of four and grandfather to 10 can speak with authority on what it takes to make a relationship work, and stick. He cites four foundational principles for taking back the land in regard to cultivating committed, God-centered, thriving marriage relationships.

First, Wake Up! Complacency is every individual's enemy and the smallest of acts can erode a once firm foundation. Swindoll asserts that when people "trivialize wrong," the slippery slope of "becoming indifferent to it, tolerate it, accept it, and finally embrace it" occurs without many realizing it. Next, Listen Up! Grow knowledgeable by the study of Scripture so that when tough times come, you are able to view life with a realistic, faith-imbued hope. Thirdly, Step Up! Be courageous enough to take on the challenge of living differently. Know the battle lines and be willing to step up to them when need be. Finally, Look Up! Turn to God in good and bad times, assured of His constant care and love. Call upon Him to make the difference between mere survival and the abundance of joyous flourishing.

In sum, Swindoll writes this: "Complacency blinds us to reality, so wake up. Knowledge sets us free, so listen up. Discernment prompts us to act courageously, so step up. God loves us unconditionally, so look up."

Swindoll continues his treatise on regaining lost ground in favor of victorious triumph by lively discussion featuring such topics as: ways to get back on target, developing a "symphony" of survival, sound methodology for practical problems, the essential "glue" necessary for every couple, helpful tips on strengthening families as a whole, discerning danger signs of erosion, and hopeful thoughts on staying youthful through the years. In a word, Swindoll's helpful textual advice is positively infectious. Readers will discover old truths presented in a fresh and celebratory package.

Solid, Practical, Biblical: SWINDOLL  May 22, 2007

If you've heard Chuck Swindoll teach or preach, you already know he's a great communicator. In this new book Dr. Swindoll turns his attention to helping marriages --- especially young married couples --- put down solid roots so that they can survive tough times and stay together. After a quick survey of contemporary challenges to marriages, Swindoll opens his Bible and begins applying Scriptural advice to today's issues.

Swindoll's book isn't "theory" --- he's been married more than 50 years; he's counseled hundreds of married couples through difficulty and adversity. Instead of offering simplistic or academic advice, Pastor Swindoll gives his readers practical, straightforward, down-to-earth help.

A great wedding gift --- also wonderful for anniversaries, especially in the first ten years of a "young" marriage. But readers of any age will find help and inspiration in these effective, well-written pages.

another winner from a favorite author  Dec 1, 2006
When I read a book by Chuck Swindoll, the complexities of life seem to become simpler and more manageable. This book is no exception.

He has used Bible stories and principles from the Bible to make it clear how to live in a marriage the way God intended. I highly recommend this book.
