A great gift book for newlyweds
This is not a book that I'd recommend if you're looking for an in-depth marriage advice book, but it's a nice introduction to the other Love and Respect books by this author. I think this would be a wonderful book to give a newly engaged or newly married couple, to help introduce them to a very important point in marriage- the need of the husband for respect and the need of the wife for love. This idea appears on pretty much every page, so you will definitely get the idea down after reading it! The book is divided up into six sections- introducing the idea of love and respect, discussing male and female differences, sections for showing love to wives and respect to husband, how to communicate love and respect and finally developing a love and respect that lasts.
Even though I'm not a newlywed, I still enjoyed this book. Since it's a gift book, it was a quick read, but gave me a good reminded of the incredible importance to my marriage of showing respect to my husband. I really liked the examples for easy ways that I could show respect for my husband. And I liked the suggestions for easy ways that my husband could show love to me. I'm definitely going to keep this book on my nightstand and read through it often to keep the important ideas of love and respect fresh in my mind!

My wife and I love to read it together. It has short little ideas about each of our different facets and what motivates and helps us understand the other. Finally a book we both can use at the same time! Highly recommended!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Biblical Marriage Perspective
Ever heard the saying: Women are from Venus. Men are from Mars?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
We are not really from different planets. However, we are very different from each other. Women need love. Women are constantly searching for love...to feel loved...to need to be needed. We feel loved through the simple things---hand holding, an unexpected kiss or caress, spending time together.
Men need respect. Men are looking for their wives to respect them. Men want permission to be the leader in the relationship. And once they have achieved that leadership status, they want to be praised for their hard work. Men want to be able to solve the issues of a relationship.
Dr. Emerson Eggerichs talks about the differences between men and women from a Biblical perspective. His latest work, Love and Respect for a Lifetime, takes a closer look at what Scripture has to say about men and women and the marriage relationship.
Scripture is clear defining the roles of marriage and family. The man is to be the head of the home, the wife the heart of the home, and the the children the hope of the home. Ephesians 5 leaves no questions. Although there are many books on the shelves claiming to help with marriages, fix marital issues, prevent marital issues, etc., the most important book to turn to is the Bible. Dr. Eggerichs does exactly that.

Book Review: "Love and Respect for a Lifetime"

Dr. Emerson Eggerichs states that men need respect and women need love. There are great quotes, some scripture passages and even picture in the book. There were many good illustrations that can be used in counseling or preaching. This is a book I would recommend to couples in trouble. I would even recommend this to couples who have a strong marriage as a checkup point for discussion. It is basic and very point on in it's approach and makes for a light and yet meaningful read. I received this book free from booksneeze and in return I give my opinion. It is a great book that I would recommend to all.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This one is a winner!
It has been said that big things come in small packages and that certainly holds true for this book! In 152 short pages Emerson Eggerichs maps out this simple strategy to strengthen your marriage for a lifetime. Using passages from The Bible, Eggerichs demonstrates to readers how the keys to a successful marriage can be found in The Bible.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Men need respect and women need love. As it was set out in the Bible it is replayed in real life time and time again. Something so simple, yet many of us miss it. With a handful of tips to start us on the right path, Eggerichs opens our eyes to things we had not taken notice of before.
Casually worded with an underlying tone of strong belief in what he is saying, this author is probably getting cheers at the pearly gates. Anyone who has made use of the self help books that are so popular today, definitely needs to pick this one up at the store!

Very glad I read this book!
I really like this book - even though it made me take an honest look at how I am relating to and speaking to my husband. No one likes to think they are being disrespectful, but through the ideas presented in the book, I was able to see the ways I can show more respect to my husband. Not through what I am saying, but how I am saying it. Through my body language and expressions - by making simple changes and being more aware or my actions, the re-action I get from him is more loving. Breaking the cycle of behavior isn't about waiting for the other person to change, but by owning it and making the changes in yourself. I think this book is one that anyone in a relationship should read - it could very well save that relationship!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A great gift-book. Well written
Love and Respect For a Lifetime by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs does a great job of condensing down the two most basic needs of men (respect) and women (love). This is a gift book, not the full edition. It can easily be read in one sitting. There are beautiful quotes, scriptures and pictures throughout the book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

As a pastor (and husband) I am always looking to further my understanding on how to help married couples make their marriages better. This book can definitely help. While Dr. Eggerichs doesn't go into great detail about the issue of love and respect, he gives enough nuggets that one could easily adjust their marriage and make a huge difference. Marriage books often times focus on so many areas while this book focuses on the most common needs of men (respect) and women (love). I found many good illustrations that can be used in counseling or preaching. This is definitely a book I would recommend to couples in trouble. I would even recommend this to couples who have a strong marriage as a checkup point for discussion.
The book is well laid out and very colorful. This would make an excellent gift for newlyweds. It is very basic and straightforward in its approach. Overall, I would give this book a 5 star rating.
