Uncommon Marriage Bible Study by Tony & Lauren Dungy

Book description:

A companion study to Tony and Lauren Dungy’s popular book Uncommon Marriage, this 5-week guide for couples or small groups delves into Scripture to explore the blessings and challenges couples face today. Drawing on biblical truths and their own personal experiences, Tony and Lauren share the importance of making time for each other, resolving conflict well, staying strong and committed through difficult times, coping with changes and big decisions, praying together, building a spiritual foundation for your family, and more. The Uncommon Marriage Bible Study will help equip your marriage to survive tough issues and flourish with joy, purpose, and partnership—in other words, to be a marriage that is truly uncommon. The book also includes icebreakers for groups, a leader’s guide, and links to free resources for churches.

My review:

I was really excited to read this book because I was hoping it would fill the void I felt after reading the Dungy’s book Uncommon Marriage.  I was hoping to get tangible guidance to draw even closer to my husband. 

I did like this book better than the companion book, but was disappointed to find that most of this study was based on reading the companion book.  I would have appreciated more biblical references and principles.  The best thing about this book was that the questions offered were easy to utilize with a small group.  However, I wish there were more questions to use one on one with your spouse.

The one thing I really didn’t like about this book was how totally dependent it was on the companion book.  It would have been better for me to have the discussion questions as an appendix at the back of the other book, since this book requires you to read the other one anyway.

Overall, this book was a little disappointing for me.  I think that there are other books out there for couples that provide more of an impact on improving marriage relationships (ie. anything by Gary Chapman).  If you are a fan of the Dungys or loved their Uncommon Marriage book, you would probably enjoy this book more than I did.

    Seems that the whole Dungy experience was pretty common.
