Love and Respect For a Lifetime, by Dr. Emerson Eggrichs
Love and Respect For a Lifetime, written by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs is a compilation of excerpts from his best-selling title Love and Respect, alongside Scripture quotations in a beautifully designed gift album edition. I loved how they made this entire book so easily read and beautiful, using creative design to highlight the truths so vital to a marriage that satisfies and brings joy to the couple and furthermore glory to the Lord – that being a husband needs to know he is unconditionally respected and a wife needs to know she is unconditionally loved (by each other).
Having been familiar with these marriage truths prior to my own wedding, I was eager to see how this gift edition would “measure up” to the real book. I was not disappointed. Even thought I will continue to highly recommend his original writing of Love and Respect, I will also be delighted to give this edition as a wedding gift to friends as well as to have in our own personal library for quick reference and reminder. I am so grateful for Dr. Eggerichs’ teaching, taken straight from Scriptural teaching and years of marriage counseling, for how it has impacted my own view of marriage – particularly how I view and relate to my husband. I think this book is an excellent resource for wives like myself who desire to be more than simply their husband’s lover, but also a true friend and companion, building him up to be the man of God the Lord has called him to be.
