BMH Books of Winona Lake Ind., today released its newest publication which, according to author Gil Stieglitz, provides biblical guidance and help for dealing with the only five problems that can occur in a marriage.
Marital Intelligence, subtitled “A foolproof guide for saving and supercharging marriage,” is based on thousands of hours of marital counseling and observation by the author.
Stieglitz is a counselor, speaker, mentor, professor, and leadership consultant based in Roseville, Calif. He is currently a professor at Western Seminary, a district superintendent for the Evangelical Free Church of America, and a church consultant for Thriving Churches International. He also directs his own ministry, entitled Principles to Live By.
Stieglitz, who for 17 years was pastor of the Twin Lakes Community Church in southern California, says there are only five problems in marriage: (1) Ignoring needs; (2) Immature behaviors, (3) Clashing temperaments, (4) Competing relationships, and (5) Past baggage. With each issue, Stieglitz carefully and consistently lays out biblical teaching on the subject, and then includes helpful anecdotes, solutions, and self-tests to help the reader.
Marital Intelligence is the perfect took to help restore marriages as God intended, either in personal study, in a mentor-directed relationship, or as a guide for a class or lecture series.
Pastor Dean Matteson of Faith Community Church in Palmdale, Calif. said, “It’s the right kind of map you can use in your marriage . . . and give to others to help their marriage.” Pastor Ray Johnston of Bayside Church in Granite Bay, Calif., said, “As I read this book I thought—it’s about time! Marital Intelligence is a goldmine for anyone who believes that any marriage can thrive if and when biblical hope and help is applied . . . it will be a great resource for counselors, pastors, and premarital workshops.”
Marital Intelligence is a 278-page paperback that retails for $17.99. ISBN number is 978-088469-265-2. To order, log onto www.bmhbooks.com, or call (toll free) 1-800-348-2756 or check with your nearest Christian bookstore or online source.
