The Love & Respect Experience: A Husband-Friendly Devotional that Wives Truly Love by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs is a devotional that husbands and wives can go through together to become closer to God and each other.
This devotional book is an addition to his other works on the Love and Respect approach to marriage. In the beginning of this devotional Dr. Emerson Eggerichs explains the 80/20 rule where he believes that 80% of the time marriage is good, but most of the time couples focus on the 20%.
The book describes the potential cycles the couples are on at any given time. These are the Crazy Cycle, the Energizing Cycle and the Reward Cycle which is.
Without love, she reacts, without respect.
Without respect, he reacts, without love.
This book is touted as a “husband friendly devotional book” It is written with an underlying belief that most devotional books are geared toward women. The stories and illustrations in this book are geared more toward men while still being friendly for women.
With a range of topics such as love, money, sex, anger, respect and anger the book is divided into 52 devotions that husband and wife can read on their own and discuss later with the questions at the end of the chapter. There are also more questions at the back of the book to get things rolling.
With most people’s busy lives these days the, it is nice for couples to new able to read alone and get back together at a convenient time. This gives time to think and ponder the material without having to come up with a response on the spot, which could be a benefit to a guy who is more reluctant to talk.
I have read this book on my own so far and now plan on sharing it with my wife.
I would recommend this to couples who would like to grow their relationship closer. The book is an easy read and takes a minimal investment of time.
