Many couples are looking for ways to preserve and improve their marriages, yet no other book on the topic has this book's unique perspective: it's written by a marriage and family therapist, from a Christian perspective.
John Eckenwiler has more than 20 years' experience helping couples preserve their marriages–not by using quick–fix techniques that address only the outward behavior of couples but by focusing on 3 critical inner elements that are necessary for successful marriages. Other relationship books focus on improving communication skills, rekindling romance and physical intimacy, managing anger, and other ways to "have a more fulfilling relationship."
In contrast, this book shows how to "shatterproof" a marriage, using 3 elements John has identified: the right personal character, a commitment to truly love unconditionally; and the right spirit to make solutions to marital problems possible. The book draws on the Bible to underscore these 3 elements–not in a heavy–handed, overly theological way, but very gently, so that the book will appeal to both devoutly religious people and those who are simply spiritual.
