Marriage requires not just love, but sacrificial love, says Bryan Chapell. In his newly revised and updated book, Each for the Other, he shows married couples how to emulate the unselfish, sacrificial love of Christ. While imparting invaluable instruction grounded in Scripture, Chapell not only helps husbands and wives understand the nature of God's care but also affirms the importance of building a spiritual foundation that binds them together as one. By presenting a biblical model of marriage, Chapell encourages couples to dive into the deeper dimensions of their relationship. The result, he says, is a Christ-centered marriage and a grace-filled family.
Refreshing and honest, Each for the Other is a perfect guide to show spouses, engaged couples, and marriage counselors what marriage is meant to be.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
One of my favorite books on marriage I have ever read. It is the book I always use when counseling engaged couples.
A superb book for engaged and married couples. The Chappells worked together in writing this book, practicing what they preach - Bryan humbly writes each chapter, and Kathy's comments are interspersed throughout, providing a full perspective. Chappell exposits Scripture and remains true to its import, regardless of personal preferences or cultural norms. His exposition of headship is particularly noteworthy - he defines the role Biblically as a responsibility and a privilege for the husband to exhibit the love of Christ to his family without manipulation or design. An excellent read to orient a Gospel-centered marriage.
