If you're newly married or are contemplating marriage, the best-selling NIV Couples' Devotional Bible is for you. Whether you use it together as a couple or as individuals, this Bible will draw you closer to God and to each other. Each weekday you'll read a brief devotional message and a nearby Scripture passage. At the bottom of the devotion, you'll find 'Marriage Builder' questions for discussion or personal evaluation. At the end of the week, you'll find 'Weekending,' which combines a short, reflective devotion with Scripture readings for Saturday and Sunday. The NIV Couples' Devotional Bible contains 52 weeks of devotions--an entire year to help you start your marriage off right. This Bible draws on the experiences and insights of over 140 contributors from all wages and walks of life. You'll read from the writings of marriage and family experts such as Jim and Sally Conway, Gary Smalley, Lewis Smedes, and the staff of Marriage Partnership magazine. You'll also enjoy the writings of Frederick Buechner, Charles Colson, Bill and Gloria Gaither, Ruth Bell Graham, Charles Swindoll, Joni Eareckson Tada, Philip Yancey and many others. The topics are as broad and important as marriage itself. Communication. Work. Sex. In-laws. Decision-making. Money. Spiritual growth. Friends. You'll find them here, together with the complete text of the New International Version, today's best-selling modern translation, known for its accuracy and readability. Now revised to reflect the realities of relationships today, the NIV Couples' Devotional Bible is a Bible for, by and about today's couple. A Bible for you.

The "Couples' Devotional Bible" brings together Bible verses (using the New International Version) with devotional passages from 143 evangelicals, ranging from Dale Evans (wife of TV cowboy Roy Rogers) to Frank Peretti (author of "This Present Darkness" and other best-selling novels of spiritual warfare). Couples who follow the book's plan can read the Bible text and a useful devotion for each day of the week, with questions and activities for weekends and a subject index on topics from adultery to finances to sex to work. Unfortunately, the devotions do little to help readers understand biblical perspectives on marriage itself. (Beliefnet, Aug. 2000) -- From Beliefnet
