The basic concept of the book is seen in the title — he is looking for true respect while she is looking for unconditional love. While Bob clearly loves his wife deeply, and is generous in showing his love to her and anyone looking on , the book is not about marriage. Bob is all about whimsy, with a distinctly Christ-like flavour. Bob does not see people as projects, he sees them as an opportunity to love and give.
Problems are chances to learn, and closed doors sometimes need to be kicked in. Bob is also a total nut, in the best sort of way, and he enjoys life in a way most of us cannot even imagine. Love Does is wonderfully written, with a beautiful mix of humour, passion, and deep truth. My bride and I so enjoy this book we have bought copies for a number of family and friends.
‘Trad wives’ unite…if your husband allows you to
Lori is on her second read, and I expect to read it several more times this year I have never reread a book the same year! I recommend this book most strongly! In this book, Chapman explains that we all hear love in one of five different ways. If you are not speaking love the way your wife understands it, she will not feel love no matter what you doing or how well you do. This is a short easy read and I highly recommend that you read it multiple times.

A few thoughts and disclosures up front: Not all of the books are about marriage. A couple are more about life, but teach something you must know to be a good husband. Not all of these books will be Christian.
I am not going to list anything at serious odds with Christian doctrine, but there is great stuff out there that comes from people who are not followers of Jesus. Truth is truth, and wisdom is wisdom. I am going to include affiliate links to the books when possible, but my motivation is not making money; I really think you need to read these books! You can find many of these books at used book stores.

Whether your marriage is currently the best it has ever been, or it is in need of repair, the Ethridges suggest that these principles will improve your relationship. Even for troubled marriages, it will take work, but it is possible to breathe new life into a relationship that has grown listless. Often, when the flames of love are growing dim at home women tend to blame their husbands for becoming cold and distant.
Perhaps, says author and counselor Shannon Ethridge, women share part of the blame when their husbands pull away from them emotionally. It is not that love has died between them; it is just that the husband has shut down emotionally because of how his wife treats him. Recognizing these patterns can help wives figure out what steps to take to reignite the passion in their relationship.

Many times, the authors say, a husband will pull away from his wife because she puts too many demands on him to meet all of her needs. Shannon and Greg, who have been married for 16 years, experienced this in their own marriage. After seven years of marriage, Shannon was extremely unhappy. His reply? His response may seem harsh, but it was exactly what Shannon needed to hear. As is often the case in marriages, she was placing a huge burden on her husband. Too many times, she says, women expect their husbands to first figure out what all of their needs are, and then meet them on their own.
Through the help of a counselor, Shannon was able to find healing for past hurts and learn how to let God meet her emotional needs.
She encourages other women to do the same. It is also important, the couple says, to realize that women are not the only ones with emotional needs. Men have many important needs as well. Often, when women feel that their husbands are not meeting their needs, they can become hurtful and unkind toward him.

This approach makes most husbands pull away because they do not feel respected, a significant emotional need for men. This was one source of the contention in her own marriage, she says. The idea that marriage is meant primarily to sanctify us has changed my entire view of marriage. Oh, C.
If you enjoy deep, rich, philosophical writings, this book by C. Lewis will be right up your alley. Hollywood would have us believe that the best sex happens in unattached, spontaneous hookups, and for the longest time I believed them. Every time I read a John Piper book, I feel like my brain is overloaded, but in a good way, because his writing helps me think of things differently and always unpacks weighty Bible texts.
This book is not for the faint of heart, but if you wade through it, you will come out with a deeper understanding of how God intended marriage to reflect eternal realities.
