Book Review – 7 Secrets to an Awesome Marriage

August 10, 2015

7 Secrets Awesome Marriage CoverDr Kim Kimberling sets forth a plan for a couple to build their most intimate relationship into an awesome marriage, not simply a somewhat satisfying friendship or a non-divorce statistic. Identifying seven secrets from his own marriage and from years of counseling couples, Kimberling discusses various areas with straightforward honesty, and compelling examples.

I would highly recommend this book for engaged couples and newlyweds. While valuable for those couples having marriage issues, it also contains extensive practical advice and ideas for any couple to continue growing their marriage from good to awesome.

7 Secrets is also highly recommended because it is so readable at only 191 pages and has manageable “sections” to read & talk  through, individually or as a couple together. While it is not as exhaustive or theological as Timothy Keller’s The Meaning of Marriage (Dutton 2011) or Gary Thomas’ Sacred Marriage (Zondervan 2000), it is as theologically sound as both these books and builds on their solid foundation with well-constructed narratives/examples. Even if he is not a “book” guy, a groom is likely to read 7 Secrets (or at least read it with his wife).

I really cannot recommend this book highly enough. I may go out and buy 20 copies and give them as wedding gifts to new couples. It is that good!
