We Still Do: Celebrating Love for a Lifetime

Divorce statistics for Christians are just as dismal as they are for the American population at large, motivating some CBA authors to speak out about what makes a marriage last. In We Still Do: Celebrating Lifelong Marriage, well-known CBA authors offer advice on how to be a better half. Most of it is predictable. (""Take turns talking. Practice Listening. Listen to both facts and feelings."") Gary Chapman (not the ex-husband of Amy Grant the other Gary Chapman) recycles old material in ""Speaking Love's Languages,"" while Gary Smalley encourages couples to nip small problems in the bud. Some, but not enough, of the material is surprising, including Tim and Darcy Kimmel's humorous essay on ""3-D Sex."" The only women contributors are co-authors with their husbands; no woman's voice speaks alone in this collection. ( May)
