Real Marriage: The Truth about Sex, Friendship, and Life Together: Mark Driscoll: Books
“This is costly book.”
The above was the first sentence in the fairly bulky red book.
The authors were right, though. There are sections of this book that seem like an autobiography as both Mark and Grace Driscoll delved into their respective pasts, bringing up errors, mistakes, and wrong decisions they had made regarding their marriage.
I believe this is a different marriage book as it does not present the author(s) as having “made it” and holding the key to marriage bliss. As a matter of fact, a big chunk of the book was dedicated to explaining the things they did not do right and what they should have done in the light of God’s word.
While several religious relationship books shy away from sensitive subjects like oral sex, masturbation, sex toys, and pornography, Mark and Grace boldly peer into this modern issues with humility and godly wisdom.
For its openness, directness, unabashed”ness”, scriptural-based instructions (and admitting lack of biblical reference for some issues), I recommend this book to any married couple regardless of whether they are enjoying your relationship or not.
