Review: When Sinners Say "I DO":Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage DVD Series by:Dave Harvey
About the Product:
Marriage is the union of two people who arrive at the altar toting some surprisingly large luggage. Often it gets opened right there on the honeymoon, sometimes it waits for the week after. The Bible calls it sin and understanding its influence can make all the difference for a man and a woman who are building a life together.
In this eight-session video series, Dave engages his audience with humor and honesty as he speaks about sin and the power of the gospel to overcome it. He opens the delightful truth of God’s word and encourages his audience to see more clearly the glorious picture of what God does when sinners say “I do.”

Marriage is a tough road and most of the time you don't get a beginners manual to help figure it all out. It takes tons of time and forgiveness and countless other things just to survive that first year. My husband and I married young and we were not following Christ as we should most of all me. I was a backslid Christian, he never being saved--so we were sinners in every sense of the word. With that being said I believe the author is meaning saved or not by his title but leaning more towards the fact we are all sinners. Marriage is hard even in the best of circumstances, but couple it with daily pressures and situations and you got a disaster waiting to happen.
The author has taken the guess work out of a marriage built by God and for His glory. He has done something that my husband and I believe that will be earth shattering and if it can help our marriage it can help anyone's. The author has 8 separate sessions for you and your spouse or it can also be used in a group setting. The sessions include Sin (Parts 1&2), Design, Contentment, Mercy (Parts 1&2), Sex and Stubborn Grace. Dave also explains issues in his own marriage and teaches you how to overcome them in your own. This study will be an eye opener whether your marriage is just beginning or it is well seasoned. If you would like to learn more, you can here.
