“Praying for your Future Husband” by Robin Jones Gunn and Tricia Goyer- Book Review
This non-fiction book is targeted toward young women prior to marriage. Authors Gunn and Goyer share their very personal stories prior to their marriages. Each chapter is rich with scriptures, letters and stories from readers, and experiences. And each chapter ends with discussion questions suitable for personal or group study.
This is not a “how to get a Christian husband” book, but rather a book about learning to lean and rely on God for everything including contentment in singleness or marriage. The book is well organized and easy to read. It is the type of thing that should be read over a period of time rather than in one sitting, as there is so much rich information and ideas to ponder.
Both authors share from their experiences of their single days prior to marriage and the areas of common interest to all young women. They also share their incredible joy of being the mother at the wedding and watching their children commit to their God chosen spouse.
This book would be wonderful for a teen age girl Bible Study or Sunday School class. Also good for individual study. Would make a great gift. While it is written from a female perspective, it would be good for guys too, if they are mature enough to look beyond the very female point of view.
