Intimate Alliesby Dan B. Allender, Tremper Longman III
In Intimate Allies, counselor Dan Allender and theologian Tremper Longman III merge their minds and skills to strip away cultural expectations and takes a fresh look at God's design for the marriage relationship. The authors focus on five foundations taken from Genesis 1-3 and include an extensive review of other biblical passages on marriage. Each section begins with a real-life story concerning an unresolved marriage issue and concludes with the same story built on the “foundation” of a godly marriage. With eloquence and wisdom, Intimate Allies will challenge readers to move their marriages out of the mundane and into the fulfilling and enriching experiences God intended.

My husband and I read this book aloud to each other as a sort of bible study. The concepts in the book are valuable. However, the pious language use in writing this book made it like chewing gravel and spitting it out to read. Between my husband and myself we have 4 college degrees, and we labored to read. If your intention is to reach a large audience with the idea that marriage is a learning experience beyond measure, then tone down the language and strive to make it flow better so that it is readable by an average person.
