    • Books on love and romance can be found in abundance. Knowing Ravi Zacharias's reputation for presenting biblical truth in a logical setting, I expectantly chose this one. I was not disappointed. I actually read it twice through in three days because I felt I'd missed some important things the first time. This author has the amazing vantage point of writing from the observations and experiences of two cultures with very different romantic traditions. He is able to point out the benefits and misus [...]


    • I had to listen to this book/sermon for school this week and I am recommending it to everybody I know!!! It is AMAZING!!!!! If you don't have time to read the book, you can listen to the sermon on youtube. It is a five part sermon (each part 14 mins). It is defiantly worth the hour and 20 minutes of your life. You will NOT regret it!!!!! It goes through everything about marriage from a biblical point!! I defiantly learned a lot from this sermon!! So now it is your guys time to go and listen and/ [...]


    • I’ve read quite a few Christian Marriage/Relationship books, but this one really stands out! Ravi uses the biblical account of Isaac and Rebekah in genesis as biblical evidence for his arguments about necessary behaviors, practices, and beliefs in marriage. Although I’m not yet married, I found that many of his points were also applicable for any sort of friendship.


    • I feel this book is not only good for couples but singles who desire marriage one dayRavi is great at pointing to Christ as a foundation for love and all relationships.


    • Rating: 3.5 stars--I liked it, but it just was not as good as it should have been.Generally Speaking: While working through Focus on the Family's The Truth Project, I became aquainted with Ravi Zacharias. I found him to be brilliant, intelligent, and insightful. I decided to rediscover the public library and borrow some books on a variety of subjects. I borrowed two by Zacharias and one edited by him. When I picked this one out, I was expecting it to be a commentary on Old Testament culture. Whe [...]


    • Ravi Zacharias uses Genesis Ch. 24 as the basis for this book on God's eternal design for the family, courtship, marriage, and lasting commitment. And it seems that although the book isn't divided as such but is sectioned into seven chapters, these three themes emerge, and in that order. Rather than dispensing advice as so many marriage manuals do, Dr. Zacharias goes deeper. Rather than providing the usual dismal statistics and the erosion of culture and its effects on marriage, he asks us to lo [...]


    • It is when you get to read this book, will you completely comprehend that family, marriage is the idea of God, thus, it should be built under God's principles to achieve the harmonize, sacred marriage and joyful family.Ravi Zacharia explained the concept of marriage so splendidly through the short record of Isaac's quest for Rebekah in the Holy Bible.


    • This is a must-read book for anyone of dating age. I believe kids should read it in their teens, then again when they start dating, again when they're serious, before they get married, and every few years into the marriage. Such good and important information from a Biblical perspective.


    • I wasn't sure if I want to read a Ravi Zacharias book on relationships, as I've only been familiar with his apologetics works so far. This book, however, has proved he is a godly man who can equally defend the purity and significance of family as he can defend the Christian faith.




    • I loved this book.I recommend it for anyone who doubts that lasting love existsAnd everyone who would like to achieve it.


    • Parts of the book are geared more toward men, no doubt because the author is a man and he speaks of what he knows. But other parts apply equally to both men and women. Some parts were more difficult to understand; had to reread a few times. Overall it was good.



    • Ravi does what he frequently does, and manages to mix apologetics, theology, personal reflection, and real application, to what is perhaps the most sensitive and difficult area of all, love and commitment. While I am currently an outsider, I have experienced enough to know that much of what he says is dead on, and I suspect much of those things that I am not quite certain of are as well, not because I have experienced them, but because I have experienced the kinds of troubles and the kinds of jo [...]


    • Beware of any culture which deems esteem over embrace. Ravi didn't write this book like other diet books for marriage which finally concludes 3 repeated things. On contrary to those ideologies he speaks about practical stuffs which were entailed alongside the story of Isaac and Rebekah. The gist is,1) Servitude matters most in love 2) Cherish each other 3) Take hardship in willingness4) Think your life begins at a funeral 5) Keep comfort in mind while resolving conflictsThe commitment he points [...]


    • This is such a great book!!!Sangat menikimati setiap halaman yang ditulis oleh Ravi Zacharias."Pernikahan adalah ide Allah, dan Ia sendiri yang memiliki hak untuk mendefenisikan maknanya". Sungguh buku ini menjadi perenungan yang mendalam bagi saya, sebelum saya tiba di pernikahan saya kelak.Suara yang berhembus di atas EdenHari pernikahan yang mula-mulaBerkat pernikahan yang pertamaTidak akan berlaluHadirlah, Bapa sorgawi,Untuk memberikan mempelaiSebagaimana Engkau memberikan Hawa kepada AdamDa [...]


    • I got curious to see a famed apologist writing about LCM so I picked up this book. The book-owner also told me that Ravi will exegete the Isaac-Rebekah story in it. Well, there was little of the exegesis. There was one I remember; it says, "she became his wife, and he loved her" meaning, the will precedes the 'emotional' component of love. The rest are all principles applicable to all "the three loves", and not strictly to marriage ("the fourth love").A couple of lessons/quotes Ravi reminded me [...]


    • This book has really taught me so much in a matter of a few short days. Written more for the single or engaged than it is for long-time couples, Ravi goes into the foundational Christian principles of Christian marriage. Ravi has taught me what it means to deny oneself for your spouse, and really hammered home the concept that love is not just a feeling, but it is dedication and hard work.Although a lot of the books exhortations scared me, they scared me for the right reasons. What's more, a lot [...]


    • I believe most, though not all, of the thoughts that Ravi has on love, marriage, etc. are accurate. He does frame the entire book in the story of Isaac and Rebekah, which is fine and it works well, though not without some concessions. The largest issue is that for several chapters, he makes large assumptions about the mindsets of our protagonists that are not to be found in the Genesis text. He then proceeds to use that as the basis for his thoughts.While I don't disagree with a good deal about [...]


    • I liked this book more at the beginning than at the end. It starts strong, and I enjoyed the focus on one of my favorite Bible stories. But in the end, I felt like there was just too much forced into the story. I like reading books where things are pulled out of the story in order to show God's truths to us and how those truths impact our real lives in practical ways. This felt like the opposite to me--he seemed to be fitting the story around what he wanted to say about courtship and marriage. A [...]


    • Ravi Zacharias gives a beautiful commentary on the centrality of marriage. It gave me a renewed commitment to my own marriage. Zacharias gives many examples that you probably wouldn't get from a typical Christian author, because his marriage bridges two different cultures. I was also impressed with his ability to give life to the marriage of Isaac and Rebecca, a story that doesn't often ring true when you are reading straight through the book of Genesis. It invokes a deep sense of reverence for [...]


    • I highly suggest this for anyone who is married, is getting married, or wants to get married someday. Catie and I read it together and talked to each other about each chapter and had a lot of fruitful discussions. Ravi really gets to the heart of what it means to wed by using examples from his own life. This is NOT a self-help book. As Catie and I read through other books together and go through our pre-marital counseling, we find ourselves referring back to something we read in "I, Isaac, Take [...]


    • I read pretty much anything Zacharias has put out, because I feel his writing gives me a real solid intellectual foundation for my faith. While this short passage, with several Kindle edition grammatical errors, is probably overpriced for the market I did enjoy it greatly. Mr. Zacharias's thoughts on love and real commitment make you feel like you're talking to a wise grandfather. It's refreshing to not hear someone so pessimistic about building with a real partner, and to actually have a great [...]


    • Excellent and clear logical progress of reasoning. I find Ravi's writings thought provoking and stimulating.All to often marriage is overly romanticized in the striving to achieve th "Cinderella" wedding, while the work of marriage is left to hoping t things will work out for the best. In this book the "r stuff of life" is laid open for thoughtful and personal interpersonal applications. Without being harsh, the crucial issues are addressed. The author with his admirable skills could have added [...]


    • Cati fiori mi-au trecut prin suflet citind aceasta carte! De multe ori m-am plans ca n-am fost pregatita pentru greutatea unor situatii prin care-am trecut in trecut, dar dupa ce am citit aceasta carte nu pot zice ca nu stiu ce ma asteapta cand ma voi casatori O carte reala pentru oameni cu calitati si defecte Un must-read. Veti fi zguduiti sufleteste si va veti apropia mai mult de perfecta voie a dumnezeirii pentru viata si pentru fericirea voastra!


    • I would recommend this book for couples seriously thinking about marriage. It's a great book on love and how to see God in the people we choose to love. It hits on a few points such as, love should not be the main/only factor when choosing a partner, but one should also look at respect, kindness, generosity and faith. Ravi also advises that one should seek the advice and good council of family and friends or people you hold in high regard, because these are the people that know you best. A truly [...]


    • In this book, the author has taken much of his teachings on love, relationships, and marriage and put it all together to form this book. It is roughly framed around the Isaac/Rebekah story. Different parts of the story serve as a launching pad to teach biblical truths about love and relationships. Overall, the book is helpful, especially chapter 2, “The Will to Do.” Zacharias is well-gifted in examining culture and critiquing it in light of Biblical principles. He does the same in this book. [...]


    • Based on a sermon that Ravi had preached some years back this book was pretty good look at marriage. It is based on the premise that marriage is not based on affection but it is based on love that comes from the commitment that we make when we get married. That affection may come and may go but when we stick to the commitment the love will flow out of that commitment. Doing this he points to the marriage of Isaac and Rebecca and from within his own experiences of marriage from the Indian context [...]


    • One of the biggest things that has struck me thus far is that Dr. Zacharias brings to light the fact that God designed woman for a very specific purpose, one which He himself did not fulfill. Man already had a relationship with God. If God wanted man to have a companion, He could have created another man. Yet he chose to create woman to "complete man" spiritually and in ways that no other creation could. There is also alot more about purity and the sanctity of marriage and about the spiritual ra [...]
