We just completed the ten lessons in this book. By "we", I mean a group of women, who met at a friend's home on Wednesday evenings, while our kids were at Awana. Some of us knew more about the Bible than others, some were new Christians, some were Catholics, others were protestants, one Pastor's wife...a real "mixed" group of ladies. I used the "Workbook" as my only resource. Some preferred reading out of the hardback, and not doing the homework. Our leader used both, one adding more depth to the other. The Workbook has five days of questions and answers for each of the ten weeks. The answers are to be supplied from Bible verses, and your own introspection. The "homework" in the Workbook was not as daunting as some of the other Bible studies I've been involved with (Beth Moore, Nancy Missler), but was still enough to cause me to examine myself and my Christian walk. Our leader enjoyed using the "Leaders Guide". The Leaders Guide had pre-selected questions from the Workbook to discuss. This kept the class focused on the lesson, and the discussion involved everyone. We used the videos, featuring the authors Dee Brestin and Kathy Troccoli. Dee is a wonderful teacher, sweet and friendly. Kathy sings, and adds some wonderful stories and insights of her own. The video is well produced. You could do a study with or without it, but I sure recommend it. With prayer, video, and focused discussion, we were able to keep our class time to 90 minutes.
I did not have trouble with the "Jesus as bridegroom" aspect of the study. It is all very scriptural. The word "Romance" is used in the same vein as "Relationship".

With respect to the idea of looking at Jesus as my husband, I must respectfully disagree with the authors. I have found this to be a very popular brand of theology that is being passed around the Church today, aimed mostly at single young ladies, and although I didn't agree with it at first, I eventually bought into it a few years ago. After learning the hard way, however, my stance on the matter is that the idea of looking at Jesus as a husband or lover is unscriptural.
I would encourage you to give it some thoughtful and prayerful consideration. We are to "search the scriptures" as the Bereans did and "Prove all things and hold fast to that which is good." (I Thes. 5:21) We are to be "sober and vigilant" because our tricky and subtle enemy, satan, walks around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. (I Pet. 5:8)
Some of the aspects of this "doctrine" with which I take issue are:
* The idea of looking at Jesus as a lover puts Him in competition with a spouse.
* It implies that a woman who is "in love with the Lord" will have all her emotional and romantic desires met by Him so that she no longer has a longing for an earthly spouse. It implies that such a woman is so spiritual that she no longer needs a man in her life because God is meeting all her needs. This is not true because God says that marriage is good. Even when He and Adam had perfect fellowship in the Garden of Eden, He decided that Adam needed a companion of his own kind other than Himself.
(Gen. 2:18 "And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.")
* It makes men feel uncomfortable and does not apply to men, leaving them out. (How many men can we think of who want to look at Jesus as "husband" and "lover"?

I am outraged that 2 such respectable Christian women would write a book like this. While all Christians should love Jesus whole heartedly, this book completly feminizes Christianity. It takes a universal Biblical concept and focuses it on women. If men were to read this book it would seem as if it was promoting homosexuality. The whole love relationship presented in this book is overly sexualized.
For example the author talks about having a human man to love her and hold her all through the night, and then says "
And He will take us home, and hold us, all through the night" - refering to Jesus. The book is full of analogies like that one. In talking about our relationship with Jesus, they say, "Do you remember that precious honeymoon time?" The first thing people think of when the word "honeymoon" comes up is how can this not be a dispicable comparison of God's pure love for us?
It saddens me that this book contains such blasphemy. A book about God's love for us and our response to that could have such a phenomenal impact, but this book abused that opportunity.
Christians are in need of good literature, but please pass this book by and in the mean time stick to the Bible, you can't go wrong with that.

I was immediately attracted to this book because I've read "Friendships of Women" by Dee Brestin and I've been a fan of Kathy Troccoli's music for about 10 years now.
Kathy is single, and Dee has been married a long time, and the way they weave their stories together in this book just great! This book was an easy read and it moved very quickly (women with little time to read, have no fear!).
Perhaps the thing that struck me most was how vulnerable Kathy was in relating her journal entries, many of which were addressed to the husband she has longed for. Even though she's prayed for a husband, she has really ministered powerfully to other single women and is a great example of making the most with whatever twists and turns life happens to take.
Dee and Kathy used the titles of love songs as chapter and sub-chapter titles. I don't think that enhanced the book at all, at least not for me. Some people might really enjoy those, though.
The book contains a lot of detailed information about the relationships between Mary and Martha and Jesus and between Ruth and Naomi and how we can learn from those stories how to have a more complete love relationship with our Savior Jesus Christ....
