Isn't sexual -- or emotional -- intimacy enough? "No," says Christian psychologist Dr. David Clarke. "Spiritual bonding is the process by which a couple cultivates the presence of God in their relationship," he says, "and it's the only 'glue' that sustains relationships long-term." Working with hundreds of couples, Clarke observes that when we take specific steps to keep God at the center of our relationships, every area of intimacy is energized. This book teaches men and women in a committed relationship how to pray together, create "spiritual conversations," read and study Scripture together, hold private worship sessions, and allow the Holy Spirit to guide them. It's extremely practical counsel all couples need today.

    Great book for a lasting relationship.

    This book is great. It tells couples how build a lasting relationship. It tells why emotional intimacy and sexual intimacy was never intended to help a marriage last til death do you part, but helps you find out what does. I highly recommend this book to couples just starting out as well as couples that have been together for a while.

    GET THIS BOOK!!!!

    After reading numerous books on marriage principles, this book covers the one aspect that many books do not mention. When you walked down that isle to vow to love, honor and cherish one another, who did you think you were making these vows to? Without having God in your marriage, you are missing out on what life can be. This book talks about how to approach this matter, and how to have a spiritually intimate relationship that takes your marriage to a higher level. :)

    Every Couple should have a copy

    I believe that this was the best book for couples. I have given a copy to family and friends to read. I was involved with a Divorce Recovery class and I recommended the book to my group because most of them were going to marry again and I thought it would be a good start.

    Great Book For the Married Couple

    This book is a wonderful guide to many different aspects of the Christian Couple's Marriage. My Husband and I both found it helpful and are continually applying it to our marriage.

    Good idea, poor execution

    The title sounded so promising, but the book just did not deliver. The author did not stay on point, and did not deliver the solid spiritual guide that the title promised. Unfortunately, this book is nothing like Elizabeth George's 'A Woman After God's Own Heart', which was substantial, firmly rooted in scripture and inspiring.
