      " I picked up this book during the Amazon.com $.99-$2.99 sale recently, and thought it might be interesting, particularly given its many good reviews. I had no idea at the time that it was a Christianity-based guide to marriage, so imagine my shock at the first reference to Satan entering a couple's relationship! That worldview pervades the book, so if you're a Christian, this may be the marriage book for you. While many of the overarching concepts are certainly applicable to any marriage, I found the references to religion difficult to relate to as a non-believer. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chelsea | 2/8/2014

      " I love Gary Chapman's books! I find them really helpful and they always open my eyes to new ideas about how to improve my own marriage. I would recommend these books to anyone who wants to improve theirs too! "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trudy | 1/31/2014

      " The Four Seasons of Marriage is an insightful look at marriage and relationships from a Christian perspective. It is not overly religious or "preachy," but it is rooted in scripture as well as psychology. The analogies seem apt, and the strategies outlined for enhancing any marriage appear quite sound. This is a very well-written book...and it made an excellent Valentine's Day read! "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenna Lynn | 1/28/2014

      " I read this book because I see so many marriages falling apart around me. I thought this was a very good look into the ever-changing seasons of a marriage. I will read it again when I can apply the principals to my marriage, but for now I can apply them to all of my other relationships. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Naomi | 1/23/2014

      " This book is wonderful at explaining the different seasons of a marriage and how to move back to spring/summer from fall/winter. I recommend this book to any married person. "

      " A down to Earth book to read at any stage of marriage. Author speaks about common challenges in a couple's life. I found some tips for 3rd and 4th seasons described applicable to the earlier ones. Read the books as part of bibliography for Family Theology course. "

      " I read this book awhile ago. Many books I completely forget about as time passes, but the general concept of this book stayed with me. It just makes sense, and sometimes that's all we need in our marriages is for someone to make a little sense out of it all :D "

      " Spring, Summer, Winter, Fall - what season is your marriage in? This book describes and explains these seasons well. Unlike our natural seasons though that come in order - a marriage can encounter a season anytime and the season can be short or very long!
      Interesting read. "
