Book Review: Love and Respect For A Lifetime by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs
This is a beautiful hardcover gift edition book. It is full of photographs of couples and items which illustrate each point. This book is about 5.75in. X 6.75in. making it a nice size to be kept on a night stand. The deep red and white color theme of the cover is used throughout the book. It is full of wisdom from the author's 30 years of counseling experience. The emphasis is on Ephesians 5:33 and how women value love and men value respect in a relationship.
I enjoyed this book so much that I will read it again with my husband. The wisdom it contains is straight and to the point. It has many scripture references to show where the author found his marriage advice. I think that if you read a few pages each day, think about them, and try to apply them you should see a positive change in your marriage. This book is for any couple, happily married or otherwise.
Different sections cover; wisdom and love of respect, as different as pink and blue, she needs love, he needs respect, communicating love and respect, and a love and respect that lasts. Until I read this book I hadn't realized that men value respect more than love. Now I see how much trouble can be caused in a marriage when love and respect get mixed up.
I received a free copy of this book in order to write this review. The opinions expressed are my own.
