christianaudio Real Marriage: The Truth About Sex, Friendship, and Life Together Unabridged Audiobook on CD

Pastor Mark Driscoll and his wife, Grace, talk about sex and marriage in down-to-earth terms, hitting issues other Christian books don't. While a wonderful wedding day is important, it's the last day of marriage that really counts. Will the last day of your marriage come prematurely through divorce? Will it be filled with regrets as you sit at the funeral of your spouse? Or, by God's grace, will the last day be a time to rejoice in the life you lived together? Pastor Mark Driscoll and his wife, Grace, want you to finish well on the last day. They share private and painful issues that damaged their own marriage-including his introduction to pornography in elementary school and her abuse as a teenage at the hands of a boyfriend-and how they overcame them to experience healing and joy with each other again.

Unabridged audio CD; approximately 8.9 hours; 7 CDs; read by William Dufris and Tavia Gilbert.

Mark and Grace give an outstanding, Biblical view of what marriage is, ought to be, can be, and how it can be a delight to honor God through Biblical marriage. Friendship is critical! With God's help, I believe this can be a tool couples who are not yet married, for couples who have been married for a while and couples who just want to improve their marriage.

My first experience with authors and pastors Mark and Grace Driscoll was through their series called The Peasant Princess, which focused on the poetic book of the Bible, Song Of Solomon, and its application to marriage and in particular sexual relations in marriage. Real Marriage in many ways is an extension on this solid teaching, as well as containing further teaching on male and female roles in a Christian marriage.
The initial chapters on their marriage testimony and the area of friendship were quite inspiring for their incredible honesty and dedication to share their failures and hard earned principles, so that other marriages will not have to suffer the same problems. Latter chapters build on this sometimes brutal honesty to create a truly real book on marriage that can be used for the benefit of many marriages.
The narration is brilliant, at first I thought it was actually Mark and Grace reading the book because they used similar mannerisms to the Driscolls and the audio book flowed smoothly even with two narrators.
This book is a must for any married couple who really wants to improve their marriage and a helpful resource for single people who plan to be married in the near future. It provides real examples and helpful suggestions on how to improve already good marriages and guidance to get marriages back on track that have deteriorated over the years.
This audio book was gifted as a part of the christianaudio Reviewers Program in exchange for my unbiased review of this work. More information can be found about this and other Christian audio books at christianaudio.com.
