This is 52 week devotional is set up for one devotional a week. The intent of the author is that readers practice what they study the remaining 6 days of the week. I really appreciate the fact that Gary Thomas tells the readers to do other studies the remaining days, thus encouraging couples to study together all days of the week. I like the fact that this is a stand alone devotional. It is not simply a rewrite of the book by the same title (Sacred Marriage), but rather is fresh and new. In this devotional Gary Thomas states that he is applying what is taught in the book. I can't wait to read the book as well. I also am pleased that I could read the Sacred Parenting devotional and not worry about it being a remake of the book that was so good. Too often authors follow up a great book with a "devotional" that is just a synopsis of the book and tends to dissapoint. In the end this is challenge to become a Christ-centered spouse. This is an excellent study!
Thank you Zondervan for this review copy.
