ABOUT THE BOOK:
Marriage expert Jimmy Evans and strengths expert Allan Kelsey show readers how to have a happier, stronger marriage by applying the concepts from the popular StrengthsFinder assessment to their relationship.
One of the biggest obstacles to a happy, strong marriage is a lack of understanding of yourself and your spouse. With Strengths Based Marriage, MarriageToday cofounder Jimmy Evans and Gallup-trained strengths advocate Allan Kelsey give readers the tools they need to dismantle that hurdle and develop a deeper and richer relationship. Applying the revelatory concepts from the popular Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment to marriage (assessment itself not included in purchase price), Evans and Kelsey break new ground in helping readers understand themselves and others. With chapters on “Stopping the Cycles of Pain,” “Speaking Love to Your Spouse’s Heart,” and “Secrets of Successful Marriages,” the book details practical ways to apply these profound insights to your marriage every day. And as a bonus, with your purchase of the book you’ll receive access to more than two hours of exclusive video content revealing how to reach your marriage’s full potential. Utterly practical and deeply insightful Strengths Based Marriage will forever change the way you see yourself, your spouse, and your marriage.
I was sorely disappointed in this book. Some of the concepts are sound therapeutic advice, but the book reads like an advertisement for the website, Marriage Today, and for both authors’ ministries. In short, it’s nothing more than a money making scheme. The whole book constantly talks about taking the gallup poll and the website.
I looked up both authors to see if they had any credentials to justify them speaking as experts on the topic. They don’t have credentials on the book. I couldn’t find any online either. As far as I can tell, these are pastors without therapeutic credentials.
