Publisher's Summary

A Marriage Book with a Difference!
A Revolutionary Message
"I've been married 35 years and have not heard this taught."
"This is the key that I have been missing."
"You connected all the dots for me."
"As a counselor, I have never been so excited about any material."
"You're on to something huge here."
A Simple Message
A wife has one driving need: to feel loved. When that need is met, she is happy. A husband has one driving need: to feel respected. When that need is met, he is happy. When either of these needs isn't met, things get crazy.
Love and Respect reveals why spouses react negatively to each other and how they can deal with such conflict quickly, easily, and biblically.
A Message That Works
Based on over three decades of counseling, as well as scientific and biblical research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs and his wife, Sarah, have already taken the Love and Respect message across America and are changing the way couples talk to, think about, and treat each other. What do you want for your marriage? Want some peace? Want to feel close? Want to feel valued? Want to experience marriage the way God intended? Then why not try some Love and Respect?

What did you like best about this story?

Everything that people are saying about the book is true. Love Emerson's voice, love the advice, can't wait to put it into use. In fact I have started following the advice and already see some change. Now I just need my boyfriend to read the book and hopefully see some major improvements in our relationship.


Any additional comments?

I am not a religious person, in fact I do not believe in God. When the book first started, I rolled my eyes every time he mentioned the Bible (he quotes scripture throughout). I guess I did not realize he is a pastor. I had to reframe my thinking to get through the book, so when he mentioned the Bible I thought, "The book of morals, the book of morals!" Because that's what the Bible is, essentially, a guide to the right (righteous)/moral way to live. If you are also non-religious, I suggest skipping the last hour (Audible chapters 28-30, book chapter 23). These chapters are simply telling you, the listener, to follow his guide because the Lord commands you based on his interpretation of the Bible. This does not help me.

Otherwise, the book was great. If you are an ultra FEMINIST, you must listen with a very open mind and take from it what you'd like. I am a feminist myself, but do believe that men and woman are built differently and have very different needs. This book definitely opened my eyes to how a man thinks. He described how I think and how my boyfriend thinks to a T. Religious, feminist, or not, I think everyone should hear his message.

Love and respect is God's design

This book was amazing. It challenges us to love and respect uncoditionaly out of reverance for Christ. It's biblical and we know it will work because God promises that if you seek first his kingdom and righteousness He will give us what we need. And God is not a man that He would lie.
