Marriage by the Book

    The information in this eight-book series of cross-cultural Christian marriage books by Marriage and Family Therapist Doug Britton helps couples learn and apply the Bible's practical wisdom. When these books are studied by individuals, couples, in class settings or in small groups, seemingly hopeless marriages are transformed and already satisfying marriages are enriched and deepened. The books are interactive, with many personal application questions scattered throughout. Each book has six chapters, making it an ideal six-week study.
