Are you planning on being married at some point during your life? Does marriage even matter? It matters to God. Can you have a stable marriage? Yes, you can with God's help.
This book will help you begin to think about marriage, even if you aren't thinking about it seriously. There is a blueprint that the author, Ernie Baker, would like you to follow. You will need to have a good foundation (God), build a strong structure (your life), and add a good roof (the marriage). If you know how to make the right choices by following God, you will have have a relationship that will be built on him.
About the Author- Ernie Baker (M.Div., D.Min) is married and has six children and seven grandchildren. He is a Professor of Biblical Counseling at The Master's College and Seminary in Southern California.
I have been married for almost sixteen years, but I would have welcomed a book like this before I was married.
Marry Well, Marry Wisely was full of solid biblical principles on how to approach a marriage based on the Bible, build your own faith dealing with marriage, and your resulting faith based marriage. I enjoyed all of the different Bible verses that were used with the support of Ernie Baker's text. I liked how he built a marriage as he would a house, with a blueprint, strong foundation, etc.
I liked the heading and subheadings in each of the chapters. The questions at the end of each chapter were very helpful (you know I like questions at the ends of chapters). They will help you grow and develop a stronger foundation of marriage through God. There is a very good appendix, "Marriage Preparation Project." It will help you gather all your thoughts together.
I think this book should be on the shelf of anybody who is planning on getting married, thinking about it, or who teaches about it. This book will help you have a solid blueprint for your marriage.
