Loving Him Well

Loving Him Well
By Gary Thomas
Publisher: Zondervan
Release Date: 01/2018

Thomas, an author and marriage conference speaker, has revised his 2006 release, Sacred Influence, renaming this robust marriage resource Loving Him Well and adding new material.

The author addresses Christian women who are interested in enriching their marriage through biblical principles and concrete, proven practical application. Thomas’s work aims to inspire married women to invest in a rich and empowering relationship with Jesus first and then seek to love their husbands in Christ-honoring fashion.

Thomas transparently shares stories from his own marriage (from both his and his wife’s perspectives) that give this text an added dimension of relatable marital insight that readers will appreciate. In three parts, Christian women will discover a treasure trove of real-life marriage conundrums and their biblical solutions on such topics as: understanding who you are in Christ; how God uses others’ weaknesses to help us grow; how to love an imperfect man; understanding the male mind; taming the temper; sexuality and addiction to porn; as well as being unequally yoked.

Whether women are newly married or are seasoned marital partners, all will happily find encouragement, enrichment, and a fresh take on the God-designed state of matrimony.
