    Pastor Mark Driscoll and his wife, Grace, talk about sex and marriage in down-to-earth terms, hitting issues other Christian books won't. While a wonderful wedding day is important, it's the last day of marriage that really counts. Will the last day of your marriage come prematurely through divorce? Will it be filled with regrets as you sit at the funeral of your spouse? Or, by God's grace, will the last day be a time to rejoice in the life you lived together?

    What disappointed you about Real Marriage?

    I always give a book at leas 3 hours before judging whether or not to finish it...I couldn't get through 30 minutes of this. The narrator/author has a condescending tone, picture the Reverend from the Simpsons with a higher pitch. I would've dealt with that, but I couldn't stand how "preachy" the book is. I don't need to hear what is or is not considered a sin in his book. I want to hear concrete ideas to help me improve my marriage. Too bad they didn't even offer me a refund for my 1 star rating so I could get something useful instead...


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A different relationship book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A compelling story of intrigue, suspense, and revelation, The Celestine Prophecy begins when an ancient manuscript is found amid ruins deep in the Peruvian jungle. Revealing nine key insights that are critical to the evolution of the human race, it contains secrets that are changing the world, and reveals how to make connections to events happening in listeners' lives right now.

    Story

    Great narration, I agree with some others that say they could do without the dramatic music. This book lived up to its reputation as being an eye opening experience that will provide a fresh perspective on why we feel that there is more to our world than we've been lead to believe. I highly recommend it.
