Kingdom Marriage

Kingdom Marriage *****
by Tony Evans

Overview: Kingdom Marriage is a book about God's plan for marriage. The first part of the book talks about the importance of marriage and God's ideal plan for it. The second half of the book is more practical. Tony Evans talks about our roles as husband and wife, prayer in marriage, romance, how to restore a broken marriage, etc.

Positive: a very hope filled book about marriage

Negatives: Tony Evans has a strange view on angles that I've never heard before. He only talks about it briefly in one chapter, but it was still strange. Other than that, I thought the book was full of wise advice.

Conclusion: My husband and I really enjoyed reading this book together a little at a time. The first part of the book is a bit dry and is written like a sermon. However, don't give up. The second half becomes very practical. My favorite chapter was on "Roles." We could see how we need to be better encouraging and building one another up. We were both very encouraged by the book.
