Real Marriage...

It's time for another BookSneeze book! :D

I was super excited to see this book listed for release in the December newsletter. It's titled "Real Marriage: The Truth About Sex, Friendship, and Life Together" by Mark and Grace Driscoll. Mark is the founding pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, WA. I have listened to several of Pastor Mark's sermon series online and shared them with others. You should seriously go check out the church's website, Some of my favorites are "The Peasant Princess" series on Song of Solomon and the series from Ruth. :)

Anyway, I digress...

Here is the description of the book from the BookSneeze website (just a word of themes below):

Pastor Mark Driscoll and his wife, Grace, talk about sex and marriage in down-to-earth terms, hitting issues other Christian books won’t.

While a wonderful wedding day is important, it’s the last day of marriage that really counts. Will the last day of your marriage come prematurely through divorce? Will it be filled with regrets as you sit at the funeral of your spouse? Or, by God’s grace, will the last day be a day to rejoice in the life you lived together?

Pastor Mark Driscoll and his wife, Grace, want you to finish well on the last day. From the importance of date nights to answers to the most tricky “can we do that?” sex questions, they share practical help and hope with people just like them—who entered marriage a complete mess—or who are planning to be married someday and want to avoid some sticky pitfalls.

Together Pastor Mark and Grace tackle the tough issues, such as:
--Why being your spouse’s best friend changes everything and how to achieve it.
--Pornography and sexual sin inside and outside of marriage.
--Submission and respect – marriage’s most misunderstood tenets-and what they should really look like.
--Honoring your spouse emotionally, technologically, and financially.
--What the Bible says about masturbation and oral sex.
--The “Can we do that?” questions you’re too embarrassed to ask your pastor.
--How to deal with intimacy issues and create the joyful and fun sex life God intended you to have.
--What type of man or woman are you? What type of lover are you? And what type of marriage do you have?

I'm looking forward to seeing this book in my mailbox before Christmas! And if you're part of the BookSneeze program and want to read along with me, there are still copies available for review! Happy Reading, Friends!
Soli Deo Gloria,
