Summary

Best-selling author Larry Crabb cuts to the heart of the biblical view of marriage: the "one-flesh" relationship. He argues convincingly that the deepest needs of human personality - security and significance - ultimately cannot be satisfied by a marriage partner. We need to turn to the Lord, rather than our spouse, to satisfy our needs. This frees both partners for "soul oneness", a commitment to minister to our spouse's needs rather than manipulating them to meet our own needs. With "soul oneness" comes renewed "body oneness", where couples enjoy sexual pleasure as an expression and outgrowth of a personal relationship.
Marriage Builder also identifies three building blocks essential to constructing marriage: the grace of God, true marriage commitment, and acceptance of one's mate. Discussion questions are included to aid couples who want to dig into it and apply the principles to their own lives and marriages. Marriage Builder is for anyone who longs to transform marriage from trial to triumph.

A must read for every married couple!

This book is a very practical 204 Christian marriages. It helps us to see how in our marriages we try to manipulate to get what we want instead of trying to minister to our spouse. our goal in marriage should always be ministry and not manipulation because manipulation is soon. A great and excellent book a must read for every married couple.

Tried and true

I have 27 books on my bookshelf on Christian marriage and relationships. This is the best, by far. The answers he offers are the only ones based totally on biblical references and principles. It changed everything I thought about marriage.
