ENUMCLAW, Wash., Aug. 16 /Christian Newswire/ -- Christian marriage links the two most vital relationships one can experience; the Believer with the God of the Universe, and husband and wife in the most intimate of human relationships. The two are inextricably combined - the vitality of one impacts the other. "Devoted to God and Each Other" by Dr. Deane L. Schuessler provides seventy-four touch points to encourage and strengthen those relationships. His interview with Focus on the Family's Dr. Bill Meier is scheduled to air nationally over a several week period in August and September.
Dr. Schuessler's topics span from dealing with the in-laws and "power listening" for newlyweds, to family leadership and keeping the relationship fresh for those who have been married for many years. Each brief but though-provoking entry provides wisdom and insight on crucial building blocks of a lasting marriage.
Additionally, each devotion culminates in two activities meant to be done together by the couple. Let's Apply suggests ways to put the topic of the devotion into practice. Sound advice abounds here. Specific discussion topics, passages for Bible study, and prompting for unsolicited acts of kindnesses are suggested. Notably, in his four steps to a real apology, Dr. Schuessler assists the couple to objectively assess the situation, realize wrongdoing, describe damage, and express regret; all of this done from a proactive standpoint that allows freedom and resolution of guilt between spouses. Following is a Let's Pray portion that guides the couple to the throne of grace so that they can receive His help and encouragement.
Dr. Deane Schuessler has been a missionary and pastor in Japan and the United States. In these major cultures he has counseled and prepared couples for marriage, as well as being an ally to help them through the struggles afterward. The proving ground of his expertise in this area has been in his forty-eight year marriage to Julia. He and Julia have three children and ten grandchildren.
Though specifically aimed at the early and mature years of a marriage Dr. Schuessler's gentle, pastoral style provides wisdom to benefit any marriage, any time.
