Because Marriage Lasts a Lifetime


P & R Publishing, 120 Pages, Paper, $9.99

Tying the Knot Tighter was produced out of a concern that couples need to be reminded often about the basics of a Christian marriage. The authors cite 19 areas of marriage and their related Bible teachings. Questions at the end of each chapter help readers take an inventory of themselves. For example, a chapter addressed to wives ends with questions including, “Do you treat your husband in private as respectfully as you do your pastor, neighbor, or friend in public?”

A few of the 19 areas covered are Growing Together, Husbands Leading the Way, The Wife Sets the Tone in the Home, Facing Trials Together, Money Matters in Marriage, and Sex.

This might be a great resource that can be given to those in premarital counseling too.
