Mack, Wayne A. & Carol
Just as the best coaches remind their players to practice the basics of their sport, Christian couples need to be reminded regularly of the basics of a Christian marriage. In a clear, down-to-earth style, Martha Peace and John Crotts provide these reminders through short chapters that couples can read, study, and pray over together.
The authors have broken down nineteen areas of marriage, summing up the Bible's teaching and offering a series of penetrating questions to help readers take inventory of themselves and their marriage. Each section ends with two recommended resources for readers who want to dig deeper in a particular area.

“There are many uses—both personal and pastoral—for this practical little book. In the home, for example, it can be adapted easily for family worship. In the church it can serve as a useful resource for counseling, as a tool for a marriage retreat, and more. I value this book, not just because of its biblically sound content, but also because my friendship with the authors convinces me that what they write in this book they also practice in their lives.” — Don Whitney, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
