Book Review: Living In Love

Living in LoveLiving in Love by James Robison

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I picked up this book.  After all, there are so many books giving the ABCs of a good marriage, but yet somehow I thought this book would be different.  It didn't disappoint. 

James and Betty Robison wrote this book as if they were sitting down having coffee with someone.  I like that writing style where you feel like you are sitting down chatting with the authors.  They told their story, and through examples they shared how they made their marriage work.

This was not an instructional guide to a perfect marriage.  Instead, they shared from the heart about some of the problems and pleasures of marriage to help encourage, instruct, and inform.  

I am single, yet found this book a great read because if I ever get married, I'll have some ideas of how to work through problems based on the Robisons' examples.  If I never get married, I have a better idea of the challenges of marriage when talking with friends.

The only thing I didn't like about it was one of the reasons I liked it -- they covered so many topics.  By covering so many topics it was difficult to go in depth with any of them, but rather it gave a good overview of marriage.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is single or newly married.  I don't think those who have been married for a while would find it as useful as those who haven't.

It also includes a discussion guide and would be a great book for a married couples' book club.

Please take a second and rank my review.  This helps in what books are available for me to review in the future.  Thank you.
