Fifty-two Scenes from Bible Marriages and How They Apply to Us Nov. 26 2009
By K. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This is a terrific book. It is great to read straight through. It will be
great for couples to read and think about week-by-week, too.

The authors make the point that sexual love is blessed by God, but that is
not the major emphasis in the book. Week by week, they present pictures of
Biblical married couples, with scriptural quotations right there instead
of you having to look them up.

The Bible translation used is not one I've read from, and I find that
reading scripture in a new translation can give me some fresh insight. I found
that in this book, and also felt the references were very accurate.

There is so much pressure on marriage these days. But there are lots of
marriages that are as great as some of the ones in this book. And yes, there
are many that need repair. This book offers a lot of insights into ways to
start repairs.

Whether you're thinking of marriage, newly married, somewhere along the
way or married a long time, this book will be inspiring.

Falls a Little Flat Feb. 25 2010
By Rachel B. Ramey (blogger/author) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I love the concept behind this book. Each devotion begins by describing an event or circumstance surrounding a biblical couple. This is followed by a short section of teaching, whether it was a "high note" or a "low note" (good example or bad), a question (or a few) to discuss and, finally, an action item. These are VERY short, although the discussion is likely to take a while, if you actually dive into it.

Unfortunately, we just didn't find anything outstanding about any of the devotions. There was nothing we particularly DISliked; there just wasn't anything we particularly liked.

The devotions themselves - the teaching portion - were mediocre.

Many of the discussion topics were very good, but would have been better had they been more specific. Those of us who aren't talking about some of these things generally aren't talking about them because we have difficulty "getting our heads around" certain vague topics BECAUSE THEY'RE VAGUE. I would have found it more helpful for these to be more specific or concrete. A few of them were, and I found these much more useful.

Some of the action items could have been helpful, but require a lot of prior planning, making them more conducive to some other setting than a devotional. (There just was no practical way to accomplish many of these during a devotional time.)
Delightful duets for couples Feb. 16 2010
By L. Jonsson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I decided to get this book for my husband and I. Both of us are church goers and moderates, and we enjoy spiritual discussions on our beleifs. Neither one of us have ever done a couples devotional before.

This devotional focuses on couples in the bible and how they overcame various obstacles in their paths to stay devoted to God. My favorite couples described in this devotional include Nabal and Abigail, King Xerxes and Queen Vashti, and Xerxes and Esther.

This is a very modern devotional. My husband and I loved the fun inspiring chapter titles which include; which include "Knock, Knock, Knocking on heaven's door"(about Isaac and Rebekah), "Mr Deborah, I presume" ( about Lappidoth and Deborah)and "De-Lie-Lah" (Sampson and Delilah), and "Your wish is My command (Xerxes and Esther).

The activities at the end of the chapters to do with your spouse are exceptional. My husband and I really enjoyed the one at the end of "Legislate it" (about King Xerxes and Queen Vashti)where you and your husband are asked to complete one of two sentences. Husbands are asked to have their wives complete "I feel loved most whenever you..." and husbands are asked to complete " I feel respected most whenever you..." One of the first devotionals in the book is called " Go Along, Get Along, Get It Wrong" (can you beleive its about Adam and Eve) and the excersize after that one was very productive for me and my hubby. We were asked after we read this devotional to write each other a permission slip to "rock the boat" in a situation where you would normally just do what the other person asked you to do. I really used this slip recently in a shopping spree at T. J. Maxx, it came to good use!

This is great for couples, also I would recommend as a family looking at the Veggie Tales "Queen Esther" story for a light hearted look at the story of King Xerxes, Queen Vashti, and Esther. I think I now want to get the original "Songs in the key of Solomon by this couple.
A little too brief and maybe a bit cheesy. Jan. 19 2011
By Rachel Himes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I'm sure the authors are really good people. I don't like to criticize a book written by someone with seemingly good intentions. So, let me say what I liked about this book:

They touch on some seldom-read verses of scripture pertaining to couples and their relationships.
They make the characters of the Bible seem so much more like real people.
They do a great job of coming up with practical take-aways.
They ask good questions for couples to consider.

What I don't like:

I think the "high notes/low notes" thing is a little tacky. It's a cute idea, but there wasn't enough tie in with the theme of the book.
To me, personally, it seemed a little contrived and more like a cute marketing angle than a significant contribution to the books theme.
The stories are too short. They give a verse from scripture. Highlight the takeaway and make a few comments about the scenario. They have a question to consider at the end of each "chapter" (which is just a couple of pages). I just felt that the writing didn't have a good "flow" to it. It felt like stop-start-stop-start on a 2 page spread. It isn't written in a format in which you or your spouse could just read the chapter aloud to the other and then do the exercises. It reads more like a Bible study than a couples devotional.

If you read the chapters and do the conversation/exercises that they suggest, it could open up some good conversation, but I didn't feel like the stories/studies contributed a whole lot to the question/discussion topics. This is definitely not "in depth" and just feels awkward. Again, that's my opinion. Obviously, a great number of other readers really liked it. But these are my honest feelings about the book.
fun concept, clumsy execution Feb. 24 2010
By Suzanne Fisher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I enjoy the idea of this book: a few discussion points at the end of short chapters based on biblical couples. Sounds pretty good, especially for a busy couple. The chapters run about 4 pages long. Each chapter is split into five sections: Bible story of a couple, the authors' take on the story, whether it was a high note or low note in the marriage of the biblical characters, your part in this kind of situation, and a duet, or "homework" section for you and your spouse.

However, the talking points are so simple that they don't cause much discussion. For example, at the end of the 1st chapter discussing Noah and his wife, you are to thank God that you and your spouse are together and ask that your marriage be strengthened now and in the future. That's pretty bland and doesn't need a chapter in a devotional. This is a common problem for these "homework" sections of the chapters.

Another issue is that the authors don't seem to have a grip on their audience; some lessons seem oriented toward a newly-married couple, and some are oriented toward couples with serious problems. However, if your relationship is somewhere in-between, this book may not be useful. You might talk more together if you and your spouse read the stories about these couples in the Bible rather than having duh moments at the end of these chapters.
