Tying the Knot offers soon-to-be-married couples a practical vision of Christ-centered marriage that is realistic, hopeful, and actionable. This nine-session study guides couples through issues like conflict, expectations, communication, finances, and intimacy, showing how each can be successfully resolved with Christ at the center of the marriage.
Knowing the stresses and needs of a couple in their season of engagement, Green has helpfully designed the study to require a manageable (and healthy) 60 minutes of at-home work per session, with questions and exercises to build communication and intimacy at the end of each chapter. Tying the Knot also includes an appendix for mentors, making it easy for a married couple, lay leader, or counselor to lead an engaged couple through the book.
I like to think of myself as a pro at this marriage thing but the truth is, that after 21 years of marriage I learn something new about my better half each day. It is never effortless! And I think that is a lie straight from the devil himself. I hope no one ever gets married and decides well the hard part is over because that is simply not true, at all. It is something that you will have to work on for the rest of your life.
Tying the Knot by:Rob Green is a great way to sharpen up your skills at this marriage thing and learn to apply some of it to an already strong marriage or to apply it to one you would like to strengthen. Based entirely on scripture the author talks about the Biblically based role of each individual according to God's word.
My husband and I say that our marriage is a marriage of 3 and the author definitely plays on that idea and he thoroughly discusses the real meaning of love on God's terms. I loved the book! It is a quick read and it is a really good guide for nurturing a good Biblically based marriage!
