Book Review

The total marriage : a guide to successful marriage / by Jeffrey and Pattiejean Brown.

Brown, Jeffrey

I absolutely love this book! I intend to be a marriage and family therapist so the title grabbed my attention, and its colorful cover drew me in. I am very passionate about this topic so the moment I saw it I knew it was a must-read for me.

Experts in the field provide guidance on how to have a happy, long term, and Christ-like marriage. With a funny and realistic approach, they flesh out attainable challenges. Counseling from a Christian perspective and with biblical support, they also clarify subjects like "submission in marriage."

The information in this title concurs with other texts that I have read in regards to courtship and marriage. This is a title for anyone who is in a relationship or who is interested in one. With so many people entering marriage with false hopes and unrealistic expectations, I highly recommend this potentially life-changing book.
