The Family Life Marriage Bible is published by Thomas Nelson Publishers and is written by Dennis and Barbara Rainey, co-founders of FamilyLife. It is a nice devotional Bible for couples with a focus on building stronger families and family relationships.
This devotional Bible has lots of content including devotionals for couples, articles, answers to parenting questions, romantic tips, faqs, quotes, notes, and more. It contains many insights on building stronger relationships and it even includes tips on strengthening the romance in your marriage. The amount of advice in the Bible is amazing.
The Family Life Marriage Bible is published in the New King James Version. The NKJV lends itself well to devotional Bibles and is the perfect choice for this type of content.
One of my favorite features was the romance FAQ. Let’s face it- us guys are clueless. We don’t know that it matters if we take out the garbage or not. For use, that doesn’t compute into romance. That’s not a cause-and-effect that we understand. We think in terms of ‘push the button’ or ‘pull the lever’. For example, ‘kiss cheek, move on to step 2’. The romance FAQ, along with all of the helps in this Bible, help guys and girls understand each other, and understand each other’s needs.
The text is not too small even in personal size hardcover. It is not red-letter. The paper does show some ghosting, but it’s not bad. The notes, along with the headings in the text, are green. Also there is a green pattern across the top of every page. This gives the Bible a unique look and feel.
I highly recommend the Family Life Marriage Bible for all families. It will help build stronger families with a focus on God.
