The Love & Respect Experience
A Husband-Friendly Devotional that Wives Truly Love
By Emerson Eggerichs
Published by Thomas Nelson
Dr. Emerson Eggerichs did not originate the idea of love and respect in marriage. Marriage, as well as love and respect within marriage are God’s ideas. Specifically, God, through the apostle Paul wrote in the book of Ephesians: “However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.” (Ephesians 5:33 NIV)
Eggerichs has taken the intertwined, God ordained concepts of love and respect and developed an entire study series for married couples. The study series includes books, videos and conferences based on love and respect within marriage as described in Ephesians 5:33.
In The Love & Respect Experience, Eggerichs focuses on fifty-two practical devotions that husbands and wives can use to help apply the love and respect concepts to their own marriages. Eggerichs states in his introduction to the book that he was aiming specifically for “husband friendly” devotions. Personally, as my husband has not yet read these devotions, I cannot speak from that viewpoint. Though I would love to see us discuss the devotions together in the future.
For those who have not read the more extensive book Love & Respect before delving into this book of devotions, a brief synopsis of the basic concepts is included. The initial devotions are also laid out so that the reader can grasp a basic understanding of the Love & Respect concepts early on. Helpful discussion questions and marriage resources are included at the back of the book as well.
