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.

My thoughts-
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.
