    Really helpful book. It was very easy to see the mistakes I was making in relationships but I found I could only handle reading a chapter at a time

    An outstanding book – one that I’d read many years ago and wanted to get a copy of again, so was thrilled to be able to locate a second-hand copy in good condition

  10. MISS EMMA L PERKS (verified owner)

    This book is mature, deep and Godly. Highly, highly recommended

  11. Cindy Williams Moore (verified owner)

    This is the book to own and read regarding all relationships. It’s a classic that I keep giving away to others, then again, need my own.

  12. Jerry M (verified owner)

    This really is an outstanding book. While it addresses all kinds of relationships, I think it is one of the best books available for improving the marriage relationship. Every relationship, Marshall says, has four elements: love, respect, trust, and understanding. He examines how to build strong relationships, how relationships break down, and how relationships can be restored. This book makes practical many passages from the Christian scriptures, but avoids being “preachy.” Marshall is little known in America because he lived and worked in Australia.

  13. suzanne v moody (verified owner)

    Tom Marshall sensitively deals with the many challenges of relationships, and ably shows that there is always room for improvement, as well as indicating the route to take. Well-written, insightful book that will help anyone who reads it.

  14. Nancy (verified owner)

    An amazing book, full of truth and insight. Not to be taken as a quick read as there is so much to process. A deep book.

Commendations

Relationships can be both the greatest source of joy, and at the same time the greatest source of sorrow. Fortunately, in this book by Tom Marshall, we have a resource that avoids a shallow ‘‘glance over’’ approach, but one that takes the reader to a deep level which can bring about new insights and understanding. I especially appreciate a book which combines depth and practicality. This is such a book. The content discussed is essential for valued and long-lasting relationships. The style makes it easy to read, and also applicable to existing or future relationships. The chapter on trust and honor speaks to issues which seem to be either hidden or lost in many relationships. Hopefully the guidance provided by the author will go a long way in helping all of us build quality and God-honoring relationships.
