While it's true that marriage can be a great adventure, it is also true that a successful marriage takes hard work, honest communication, and faith.

Before entering into the marriage covenant, couples should consider the finer details of their relationship: How does Christ fit into the relationship? How will finances be handled? How should a husband love his wife, and how should a wife love her husband?

Those questions and many more like them are asked in Mentoring for Marriage, a seven-session study designed for engaged couples seeking pre-marital guidance and challenge. Believing that no study can exhaustively cover the topic of marriage, Daryl G. Donovan has created a resource that fosters critical discussion and thought among engaged couples who have sought out the careful mentorship of a pastor, counselor, or married couple.

Firm in his conviction that every marriage must be sustained through Christ, Donovan provides plenty of space for a couple to work through individual differences and uncertainties. Mentoring for Marriage is an excellent resource for pastors, counselors, engaged couples, married couples, and mentors. This resource enables a reliance upon wisdom and encourages open and honest discourse for any couple wanting a God's-eye view of marriage before they say "I do."
