Couples Who Pray...

I recently was sent a book to review, and have been anticipating the arrival of it!  I was checking the mailbox daily to see if there was a package!  The book I was so eagerly awaiting?  "Couples Who Pray:  The Most Intimate Act Between a Man and a Woman", by SQuire Rushnell and Louise Duart.

It finally arrived.  I tore into the package.  I completed the initial questionnaire .  I started flipping through and scanning the chapters.  I was highly disappointed.

Most of the first 3 chapters are about the study done on 2 dozen couples, and about the statistics of the world today regarding marriage.  Did I mention that they suggest several different places that you can sign-up online at their website for a small fee to compare your scores with the scores of others (among other "benefits" from their site)?  That's what I compare my marriage to someone else's!

Finally, I read through the "40 day" part of the book.  It was not very helpful, and they didn't give clear instructions that I couldn't found elsewhere.  What had sounded like a great book for my husband and I to do together for the next 40 days had turned in to a big disappointment. 

My husband and I will pray together for 40 days, but without the help of the book!
