SKU: F01201B


Dr. Emerson Eggerichs' book, Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires, the Respect He Desperately Needs, is based on the biblical passage from Ephesians 5:33. His premise is that communication between a husband and wife is often frustrated because of the vastly different ways in which men and women perceive love. Women are wired to need unconditional love and men need to feel unconditionally respected. Revitalize the love in your marriage!

Why Love and Respect is not a good book for Christian marriages

anonymous| 2019-03-20 13:52:00 Please read this article before you consider buying this book or using it as a study within your church or bible study.

This book should be banned

Why is Focus on the Family promoting this book? The subject matter is quite shocking and truly sets up patterns of abuse within marriage. The personal stories from his own marriage and belittling his wife and wearing her down made my heart hurt for her. The attitudes he presented towards sex and how women need to always be quiet (even after abuse) was disturbing. The subject matter in this book isn't Biblical! Why is it listed as a resource for Focus on the Family?!

Excellent! The best book on marriage!

This book is excellent! It helps us to see each other with 'good intentions' and made a difference in our marriage! It was a game changer!!!

A Christian marriage book that doesn’t bare any resemblance to Christ’s love

This book woefully lacks research-based evidence and ironically for a Christian book, Jesus’ love never shows up. At best, this book could be a blueprint of how NOT to live out a Christ-like marriage and at worse, enable the type of men who would dominate and abuse in the name of God. The Bible is clear - sex in marriage is a mutual “knowing” of one another, not a man’s “release” as this author repeatedly asserts. While the need for man’s release comes up multiple times, a wife’s pleasure/orgasm never does except as an aside note. Teachings contained in this book have had a direct impact on causing serious harm to a generation of women and men. Apparently Christian men have authority over everything except their sexual urges. Time is up. This author owes his followers an apology and a retraction.

Love & Respect is what is needed in Marriage

I read this book because a family member posted, on social media, a picture of a quote from this book. The quote was being used by a critic to promote their own book by saying Love & Respect has teachings that are harmful. So I chose to read the book to see the context of the quote. What I found in the book was advice based on Scripture and backed with the Scripture so you could search out what the Bible actually says!

The book will destroy your marriage, not help it

This boom is absolutly horrendous and completely misuses scripture in order to push an agenda that allows men to abuse women. Men and women both need love and respect. His entire premise is horribly flawed. The author needs to repent and retract this garbage.

Great resource

Coming from an abusive marriage this book described what was missing from my marriage and how to fix it. This book is written from a Christian perspective and based on scripture. Highly recommend for married couples and those looking for a mate.
