As for Me and My House by Walter Wangerin Jr.

Print

This is an excellent book on Christian marriage, written in autobiographical form by someone who really knows how to turn a phrase. When I first sat down to read this book my intention was to skim through rather quickly, gleaning whatever was of value. But I was soon arrested by first the writing ability of the author, and then impressed with the content of the volume. The strongest section of the book, which contains five chapters, is on the subject of forgiveness. There he covers well the biblical teaching on forgiveness but he does so by opening a window to his own marriage, which sailed through turbulent waters for a number of years.

While As for Me and My House would be helpful to any couple, it is best suited for those who have been married a while and perhaps are struggling with their relationship. If the principles within the book are applied, it will improve any marriage.
