This book provides some helpful tips about how to understand your spouse. I appreciated the perspective of “blue hearing aids” and pink hearing aids.” It was a great reminder that we both hear and say things that can be interpreted in a very different way by our spouse. I also liked the reminder that men need respect more than love and women assume that men must earn our respect before we offer it. It’s a cycle and the easiest way to break it is to offer your spouse respect and expect nothing in return. That’s difficult but it is a big step towards harmony in the home. ( )

Emerson is certainly not biblical scholar, he (unfortunately) misuses and misinterprets Scripture at times—and would have benefited from just a little ounce of theological research—instead of coming off like a resurrection of the self-help genre.

But his premise is helpful, even if it does not work in every situation. ( )

You can find my full review at Quieted Waters.

Dr. Eggerich’s unique contribution to relationship literature is his focus upon the husband’s need to be respected by his wife. While men and women need both love and respect, they differ in which is a higher priority. Dr. Eggerich cites a study in which 74 percent of men reported that they would rather be alone and unloved than to feel inadequate and disrespected by everyone, and he references frequently Paul’s exhortation in Ephesians that women are to respect their husbands.

You can find my full review at Quieted Waters.

Dr. Emerson Eggerichs’s book, Love & Respect, is a tale of two halves. In the first half of the book, Dr. Eggerich introduces his relationship philosophy, coming from Ephesians 5:33: “The husband must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. Could it be any clearer than that? Paul isn’t making suggestions; he is issuing commands from God Himself.” In the second half, he proposes six practical ways in which men can effectively love their wives and six practical ways in which women can respect their husbands.
