The Marriage You Never Dreamed Of.  

Practical steps to extraordinary, lasting love.

An A to Z of relationships from a Christian perspective By Brian Taylor

 

This book is a guide and manual aimed to assist you in developing good relationships. The main focus is on marriage relationships but the principles can apply to any relationship. Hence the principles can be applied at work, at your sports events and any social occasion. Because the principles of relationships are perpetual this book and manual combined can be used as a resource for many years.

The book is packed full of good ideas on how to enhance any relationship. It is presented in a simple and succinct format with each chapter being just a few pages. Hence it suits people with a busy lifestyle. We can take one idea a week and apply that and then watch our relationships improve and grow.

The book was originally written for Brian’s daughter and fiancé when they announced their engagement. The purpose was to provide them with some ideas on how to have a good marriage relationship. Since then it has been developed and improved to the combined book and manual that it is today.

The source of most of the principles has been the Bible. Hence there is a very clear and strong Biblical and Christian focus in the presentation.

The ideas in this book have been described as proverbs of relationships. Indeed they are, but they are more than that. They are seeds that can germinate producing growth and enhancing our relationships. Our continued growth and development will produce fulfilment and maturity so that we reach toward our full potential.

Book Review
“This is a New Zealand home-grown marriage advice and practical support publication from a first-time Kiwi author. Style is very down-to-earth and plenty of opportunities for practical applications, and the reflection/application questions are engaging and worthwhile. Strong Christian heart, mind, and soul has developed this marriage resource, featuring plenty of inspirational quotations from the Bible and thought leaders from around the globe. As a workbook, this is perhaps better suited towards individual/couple reflection and application together, rather than a small group study, as many of the questions have a strong emotional and spiritual depth to their content. However, it is also suitable for small group study. It doesn’t come across as preachy or as counsellor’s advice, literally written by “an ordinary bloke with a regular job”. I found it to be truly “an A to Z of family relationships from a Christian perspective”. Very practical for marriage and relationships, loaded with life-skills for developing emotional intelligence and seeking wisdom through God’s Word.”
