7. Love & Respect: The love she most desires, the respect he desperately needs by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs
Gzzsh, grzh, grz. (That’s me hitting my head against the desk.)
This book comes highly recommended by so many people. I think that’s why I bought it. Or did someone buy it for me? (If that was you and you’re reading this now, please extend a ton of grace for me.) But I could not get past chapter three. I think I tried at least three different times.
They led workshops and classes on this book at our church. Small groups have been formed from this book. Really, there must be something to it. So don’t rule it out based on my opinion. From what I can tell, though, the content in this book could just as easily have been written in a medium-size six-page brochure and covered all the information that’s in the book. Maybe, I could have gotten all the way through it then.
Anyway, it’s still on my shelf. Perhaps I’m waiting for the next person to say, “We’re reading ‘Love & Respect’ in our Small Group so I guess I better order it!” Then I can run up to my library and happily bless them with the book.
