In Stock. God is Good for You A defence of Christianity in troubled times. In any event, I don't see how any married person, or any person interested in getting married, could be anything but aided by reading this book. And to top it all off, it's a very quick read.

Beware of any culture which deems esteem over embrace. Ravi didn't write this book like other diet books for marriage which finally concludes 3 repeated things. On contrary to those ideologies he speaks about practical stuffs which were entailed alongside the story of Isaac and Rebekah. The gist is, 1 Servitude matters most in love 2 Cherish each other 3 Take hardship in willingness 4 Think your life begins at a funeral 5 Keep comfort in mind while resolving conflicts The commitment he points Beware of any culture which deems esteem over embrace.
The gist is, 1 Servitude matters most in love 2 Cherish each other 3 Take hardship in willingness 4 Think your life begins at a funeral 5 Keep comfort in mind while resolving conflicts The commitment he points appears to be immense unless a couple found the glory of cross in their lives. I bet there is no other book other than bible which defines the intrinsic value of being in love. It got the paramount symbol of love from the master itself.
Ravi never fails to address the issue of prayer and devotion which a couple should have. Not just to dwell in gods presence rather to acknowledge his sovereignty over their lives.

Whenever a new chapter opens- the life of Isaac and Rebekah unveils the flawless life story, through which Ravi carries his impeccable contexts. Dec 14, Minnie rated it it was ok. I got curious to see a famed apologist writing about LCM so I picked up this book. The book-owner also told me that Ravi will exegete the Isaac-Rebekah story in it. Well, there was little of the exegesis. There was one I remember; it says, "she became his wife, and he loved her" meaning, the will precedes the 'emotional' component of love.
The rest are all principles applicable to all "the three loves", and not strictly to marriage "the fourth love". Nov 24, Brent McCulley rated it really liked it Shelves: marriage. This book has really taught me so much in a matter of a few short days.
Written more for the single or engaged than it is for long-time couples, Ravi goes into the foundational Christian principles of Christian marriage. Ravi has taught me what it means to deny oneself for your spouse, and really hammered home the concept that love is not just a feeling, but it is dedication and hard work. Although a lot of the books exhortations scared me, they scared me for the right reasons. What's more, a lot This book has really taught me so much in a matter of a few short days.
What's more, a lot of the things that Ravi talked about were topics that Stephanie and I had previously brought up together and discussed. Hence, the book really just affirmed the importance of these deep and important topics, as it shed new light of the tough issues that are scarcely discussed in today's culture.
I have been so blessed by this book, as this is one that I'm definitely going to read through again! Jan 30, Marcelo Gonzalez rated it liked it. I believe most, though not all, of the thoughts that Ravi has on love, marriage, etc.
He does frame the entire book in the story of Isaac and Rebekah, which is fine and it works well, though not without some concessions. The largest issue is that for several chapters, he makes large assumptions about the mindsets of our protagonists that are not to be found in the Genesis text. He then proceeds to use that as the basis for his thoughts. While I don't disagree with a good deal about I believe most, though not all, of the thoughts that Ravi has on love, marriage, etc. While I don't disagree with a good deal about what he writes, eisegesis is a big no-no and he commits it flagrantly.
For someone so learned and highly esteemed, including by me, this is a major detraction for me and this book. If you can read this as a wise man's personal experience and thoughts, it is still well worth reading. I expect not everyone will be as turned off by his misuse of the Biblical text as I am.

It starts strong, and I enjoyed the focus on one of my favorite Bible stories. But in the end, I felt like there was just too much forced into the story. I like reading books where things are pulled out of the story in order to show God's truths to us and how those truths impact our real lives in practical ways.
This felt like the opposite to me--he seemed to be fitting the story around what he wanted to say about courtship and marriage. And while I don't necessarily disagree with much of what he said, I would rather he presented these things as his opinion, or based on his life experiences, rather than forcing them into the story of Isaac and Rebekah. Aug 26, Steven rated it really liked it. I highly suggest this for anyone who is married, is getting married, or wants to get married someday. Catie and I read it together and talked to each other about each chapter and had a lot of fruitful discussions.
Ravi really gets to the heart of what it means to wed by using examples from his own life. This is NOT a self-help book.
I, Isaac, Take Thee, Rebekah: Moving from Romance to Lasting Love by Ravi Zacharias
As Catie and I read through other books together and go through our pre-marital counseling, we find ourselves referring back to something we read in "I, Isaac, Take I highly suggest this for anyone who is married, is getting married, or wants to get married someday.
As Catie and I read through other books together and go through our pre-marital counseling, we find ourselves referring back to something we read in "I, Isaac, Take Thee, Rebekah" time and time again. I really think we came out of it understanding each other even better than we did before. Jan 16, Alexander Fitzgerald rated it it was amazing Shelves: apologetics. I read pretty much anything Zacharias has put out, because I feel his writing gives me a real solid intellectual foundation for my faith. While this short passage, with several Kindle edition grammatical errors, is probably overpriced for the market I did enjoy it greatly.
Zacharias's thoughts on love and real commitment make you feel like you're talking to a wise grandfather. It's refreshing to not hear someone so pessimistic about building with a real partner, and to actually have a great I read pretty much anything Zacharias has put out, because I feel his writing gives me a real solid intellectual foundation for my faith. It's refreshing to not hear someone so pessimistic about building with a real partner, and to actually have a great deal of logic behind his teachings. I feel like a better person having read it, and that's really all I was looking for.
Aug 02, Chad rated it it was amazing. Ravi Zacharias gives a beautiful commentary on the centrality of marriage. It gave me a renewed commitment to my own marriage. Zacharias gives many examples that you probably wouldn't get from a typical Christian author, because his marriage bridges two different cultures. I was also impressed with his ability to give life to the marriage of Isaac and Rebecca, a story that doesn't often ring true when you are reading straight through the book of Genesis.
It invokes a deep sense of reverence for Ravi Zacharias gives a beautiful commentary on the centrality of marriage. It invokes a deep sense of reverence for marriage that is often lost in the hype and scare over the fate of marriage in today's political battles and decisions. Nov 19, Lydia rated it really liked it. I would recommend this book for couples seriously thinking about marriage. It's a great book on love and how to see God in the people we choose to love. Ravi also advises that one should seek the advice and good council of family and friends or people you hold in high regard, because these are the people that know you best.
A truly I would recommend this book for couples seriously thinking about marriage. A truly great book for couples seeking to take the next step and even those that are married. Excellent and clear logical progress of reasoning. I find Ravi's writings thought provoking and stimulating. All to often marriage is overly romanticized in the striving to achieve th "Cinderella" wedding, while the work of marriage is left to hoping t things will work out for the best.
In this book the "r stuff of life" is laid open for thoughtful and personal interpersonal applications. Without being harsh, the crucial issues are addressed. The author with his admirable skills could have added Excellent and clear logical progress of reasoning.
