Book Review: "When Sinners Say I Do"
Did I like this book? YES! I am leary about marriage books, but once I got started into this one I realized I was taking it for granted and had to go back and re-read the first two chapters. It was then I realized I was hooked. Pastor Harvey gives great insight into sin, the glory of God, mercy, forgiveness, and grace and applies it appropriately to our marriages. Is this a marriage book? Yes, but only after being a well crafted book about the goodness of Jesus despite our sinfulness. I will reference this book again and again, and will probably require its reading for marriages I counsel. As a Pastor myself, I would use this book not for newlyweds, but for those one to two year marriages, who are struggling. The young marriage that realizes that their spouse and their marriage isn't all bliss. I would strongly encourage any married couple who needs a boast in the theology of their marriage to read this book.
This book was given to me by Shepherd Press as a review in exchange for my honest and realistic review.
