Formerly: How to develop deep unity in the marriage relationship--Title page.
Introduction -- Unity through understanding God's purpose for marriage -- Unity through a clear understanding of the wife's responsibilities -- Unity through a clear understanding of the husband's responsibilities -- Unity through good communication -- Unity through financial agreement -- Developing sexual unity -- Unity through a common philosophy of raising children -- Promoting and maintaining unity by means of family religion -- Conclusion.
God designed marriage to be a relationship of deep unity. The strength and beauty of that biblical norm are reflected in far too few marriages today. Divorce rates soar, even among Christians, and couples who do not go their separate ways resign themselves far too often to mere coexistence. The result is that many are tempted to view deep marital unity as an impossible ideal. Wayne Mack recognizes the challenges involved in building a strong marriage. He also knows that Scripture provides the method and means for meeting those challenges with growing success. In this volume Dr. Mack has gathered a wealth of practical information on marital roles, communication, finances, sex, child raising, and family religion. This valuable counseling aid for pastors can also be used with great benefit by couples on their own. - Back cover.
