Few mar­riages fall apart because the spouses have evil desires. But even the good desires of two well-meaning peo­ple do not always match up. Our lim­ited time and resources mean that ful­fill­ing one person’s desires often results in neglect­ing another’s, which can lead to con­flict and bit­ter­ness. So how do we enjoy the bless­ings of mar­riage with­out being con­sumed by our desire for those bless­ings we prefer?

Brad Ham­brick shows us that Jesus addressed this very issue—in his foun­da­tional call to be a dis­ci­ple, no less. In this plan for bib­li­cally deal­ing with mar­i­tal con­flict, he walks us through Jesus’ words and their impli­ca­tions, out­lines a typ­i­cal mar­i­tal con­flict, gives us strate­gies for how to “inter­rupt” our con­flicts with grace and love, and gives us fur­ther tips on how to reignite romance going forward.

Endorsement 

“Brad Hambrick reveals that he knows real couples – you can tell he has fought on the front lines of marital counseling for years. Just as importantly, his writings reveal that he also knows how to handle Scripture. Combining these two skills is the perfect recipe for both a thoughtful and practical, as well as true and helpful, discussion of marital conflict.” – Gary Thomas
