Is This The One: A Book Review and GIVEAWAY!

About The Book:


In Is This the One?, Steve Arterburn---an award-winning author and the founder and chairman of New Life Ministries, the largest faith-based broadcast counseling and treatment ministry---has created a 'how to' plan for happier, stronger marriages. He contends that living in a 'no regrets' relationship can be as simple following this spiritually solid and personally drawn plan before the first 'I do' is even spoken. Host of the number one Christian radio broadcast, “New Life Live!,” Arterburn draws a painfully personal portrait of the devastation divorce has on a family. Rather than aiming at marriages already in jeopardy, Arterburn focuses attention on the beginning of relationships---before the commitment, before the emotional investment, before the children. He prescribes three sets of ten carefully devised dates designed to help couples reveal their true colors and clarify whether or not they are a compatible match. This practical, personal, and positive plan can impact marriages---and ground the skyrocketing divorce rate---as no other book has. Is This the One? is a must read for engaged or dating couples, happy singles, concerned parents, and anyone who wants to make better decisions about who to marry and who to leave behind.


About The Author:


Stephen Arterburn is a bestselling author, radio host, and entrepreneur. He is the founder and chairman of New Life Ministries, the largest faith-based broadcast counseling and treatment ministry. He is also the host of "New Life Live!" - a nationally syndicated daily radio program - and founder of Women of Faith conferences. He is also the author of many bestselling books, such as the Every Man's Battle series and The God of Second Chances. Arterburn lives in Indianapolis with his family.


My Review:


An insightful read that will allow you to really find out if your loved one is truly "the one". Written in a non-threatening manner, the book is a fairly quick read, and covers topics like priority, communication and being honest with one another. It is so important for marriage to start off on the right track so that we don't even get to the point where divorce is an option. Arterburn gives a number of great ideas and tips, and I believe this is a book that should be read by all engaged and seriously dating couples, as well as newlywed couples.


I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
