Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The marriages of exemplary Christians are not always models of Christian love, as Petersen shows in several of these accounts of the married lives of 25 well-known past and contemporary Christians. For example, John Wesley, father of the Methodist Church, entered an explosive union with Molly Vazeille, who finally left him after 25 years of marriage. Quaker author Hannah Whitall Smith (The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life, 1874) ironically endured a marriage made wretched by her husband's instability and infidelity. Author Petersen, the editorial director of Fleming H. Revell and Chosen Books, writes in an engaging style that is humorous yet tempered with compassion.
