Marriage is hard. Every person has expectations of what life will be like after they’re married, but rarely is reality even close to the dream. This leads to disappointment, disillusionment, and many times divorce.
So, how can we avoid divorce court? Is there any way to find a middle ground in marriage? Dr. Steve Stephens’s newest book, Lost in Translation, attempts to bring both mean and women to an understanding of each other and help them to find this middle ground. Stephens is a licensed psychologist and a marriage and family therapist. He has been counseling couples, as well as individuals, for over twenty-five years and has written more than twenty books.
Lost in Translation covers topics of interest to both husbands and wives such as the differences in how men and women think, communicate and interpret each other’s words and actions. Stephens gives examples of questions and issues he's heard from couples throughout the years. He also shares his own experiences and guides couples in how they can better understand one another.
This book is great because the chapters are short and could easily be read by a couple together. At the end of each chapter, Stephens gives a summary and discussion questions. I was also impressed by the practicality of the topics, one of which is struggles in the bedroom that many Christian couples need to discuss, but are embarrassed to do. This book is a down-to-earth, tell-it-like-it-is, look at marriage.Powered by Sidelines
