Our dating group that was reading this together had to start each meeting by clearing out everything we hated about the last chapter, but also in all of the discord with the authors, we found great conversation in disagreeing. It did exactly what it said--helped up build a solid foundation.
It provokes deeper searching in the scripture to find out the real truth and helped us tackle hard questions. We are always looking for a couples-devotional book that measures up to this one, but we haven't found one yet. I especially like that you read the short daily devotionals by yourself during the week and come together on the weekend to read a devotion together with discussion questions! While I disagree with some of the theology in the book, overall I found it helpful as a reflection and discussion device.
This book, though it was not enjoyed as much for what it was, had some great value for our couples group as well as the one-on-one conversations with my girlfriend. My fiance's proposal even stemmed from a discussion based upon one particular chapter, so for that alone, it was a worthwhile read.
I like the format: about two pages of daily reading for Monday through Friday, then 6-10 questions to discuss on Saturday. Definitely very inspiring, convicting, and helpful. May however be geared more towards those new to their faith.
