This book is actually a gift book, which I was unsure about initally, but ended up really liking. Since it's a gift book, it's simple with just a phrase or paragraph or two on each page. It's a nice hardback book with nice, thick, glossy pages. The decorations on the pages and the colors that are used are very eye-catching, and I enjoyed looking through it. 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! Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book as part of the Booksneeze program. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.

I read the full version of this book a year ago and it changed my perspective on relationships completely. Now that I own a Nook I decided to buy the e-book for a "refresher" but I chose the wrong version. This one is good but the full version is much better. I'm now planning to purchase the audiobook of the full version as a gift for my daughters because I believe it will open their eyes and help them in their marriage. Emerson Eggerichs nailed it...but read the full version first. The title of the full version is "Love and Respect: The love she most deserves, the respect he desperately needs".

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!

Love and Respect for a Lifetime by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs is a marriage book written to help couples understand a main difference between men and women in order to enhance their relationships with one another. The essential message of the book is that women need love and men need respect. Respect is a man's deepest need while a wife's driving need is to feel loved. When these needs are being meet the couple is happy. I found this book to be an enjoyable read. It is a quick, easy read because the chapters are shorts and the book has many qoutes and Bible verses sprinkled throughout it. Eggerichs did a good job capturing my attention and he challenged me to think and apply his words to my marriage. I would also say that Eggerich's message was rooted in Biblical truth. The little criticism I have about the book is that it is so similar to many other marriage books. There's no real new idea contributed to the field. His ideas are basically the same as what's out there only reworded a bit differently. In addition, I found this book to be very repetitive. Eggerichs basically has one central message that he is trying to get across and he just keeps repeating it over and over. Overall though I am glad I read this book as it was a light, encouraging read. I would recommend it to others.

Although "Love and Respect for a Lifetime" is a quick, easy read, the layout is more like a daily devotional, with each page containing a quote or phrase related to love or respect. It is not necessarily something you would just read straight through. The author gives us examples of how men and women are "wired" differently, as in pink and blue. He shows us that the driving force for women is love, and women need love in order to respect, whereas men need respect in order to love. While both are important in a marriage, men and women feel them differently. Before reading this book, I would have thought that both husbands and wives equally want and need love and respect, and I still do think they each need both. However, after reading some of the examples in this book, I got an understanding of how men and women need love and respect in different orders to have a healthy marriage. This book would be a great gift wedding or anniversary gift, as it is presented in a gift-book format with nice thick pages and a simple layout with quotes and phrases divided into sections.

Dr. Eggerichs seeks to offer clarification on the importance of the Biblical obligation of wives respecting their husbands, and husbands loving their wives. Not only is it a mandate from our Lord, but men NEED respect and women NEED love. It is part of our make-up, and essential to the way God has created us. Dr. Eggerichs explains that if one spouse can understand this essential need of the other spouse, then the cycle of miscommunication and misunderstanding can often be broken. This book is great for newlyweds, long-time marriages, and even engaged couples. It is written in a light-hearted, simple manner, which makes it easy to pick up and read again and again. I would recommend it as a general reference for Christian marriages or even as a small study group book. It also makes a nice wedding or anniversary gift. I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Ever heard the saying: Women are from Venus. Men are from Mars? 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.

Dr. Emerson Eggerichs wrote this gift book to show how to care for both the husband and the wife. He says "Women absolutely need love, men absolutely need respect, it's as simple and as complicated as that..." I thoroughly enjoyed the book because it was uplifting and explanatory of how to help make a better and more enjoyable marriage: respect and love. Disclosure: I got this book from Booksneeze which is a book review bloggers program. I wrote what I felt about the book. I am following directions on the disclosure from the Federal Trade Commission.

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.

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. 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!

I got this book to review and was quite disappointed. I expected more strategies to overcoming turbulance often found in a marraige, or tips to help right a marriage gone wrong. Though this book does offer tips and suggestions across the colorful pages; it only really reitirates the fact that Christ needs to be first in a marriage. The pages are quite brutally labeled with the fact that women need love and men need respect. The repitition of this is obnoxiously plastered throughout the pages. I lost interest in the first chapter and had to force myself to complete the book. My suggestion is if your marriage needs work, turn to your Bible for guidance and remember to talk to your spouse, and listen just as empathetically. It's all about common sense and treating the other person how you would want to be treated...the famous Golden Rule.

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!

This is a gift book designed for married couples. The author poses the thought that at the root of every marital problem is the issue of love and respect. Women have the need to always feel loved by their partner and men have the need to always feel respected by their partner. The book bases it's thought on the scripture Ephesians 5:33 "However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband." The book discusses different ways to address these needs while strengthening your marriage especially in the area of communication. These tips are presented in an easy to read manner, with scriptures concerning love and marriage throughout. The pictures are beautiful and fit very well within the theme of the book. The main feature of this book that I appreciated was written in a way that makes it applicable to both men and women. The author looked at this subject from both perspectives of husbands and wives, which makes it a more beneficial resource than others. I think that any married couple or anyone considering marriage would benefit from reading this book.

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. 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. *This book was gratefully received from Thomas Nelson at no cost in exchange for my agreement to post this review.

When I first saw this book I thought it would be a lovely addition for some light reading. The book is beautifully crafted with lovely pictures and many wonderful quotes. I know that there is a full length book by Dr. E. Eggerichs from which this little book is based off on. Prior to getting this book I had heard many positive things and even read many positive reviews on Dr. E Eggerichs' books that I was looking forward to getting my hands on this one. Unfortunately for me, I am not married and quite frankly I can't put myself in such a situation to fully understand what marriage is all about. Although this book may be geared towards married couples I did find material that can essentially apply to relationships in general. Take for example the concept of respect, which I believe is one of the fundamentals of any healthy relationship. This book would be a lovely gift for a newly married couple or just any married couple out there. This book was a gift from Thomas Nelson for this review, the opinions I have expressed are my own.
