Let's Talk Marriage: A Guide for Couples Preparing to Marry

F. Dean Lueking, Author, Martin E. Marty, Foreword by Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company $10 (80p) ISBN 978-0-8028-4904-5
Designed to be read by engaged couples, this sensible marriage preparation handbook tackles all of the potentially sticky issues with both style and substance. Lueking, a retired Lutheran pastor who counseled more than 1,000 couples before their wedding days, adopts a warm, conversational tone as he deals with issues such as money (which, interestingly, he addresses first), sex, in-laws, fidelity, children, forgiveness and faith. The book's read-aloud format ensures that couples will begin putting Lueking's communication techniques into practice even while reading the book together. This will help to provide solid foundations for a good marriage, which, according to Lueking, ""consists of lifelong growth in unity in mind, body, and soul."" (July)
