Simply the Best

As an engaged man excited about my impending first sexual encounter, I reached out to Christian friends for a recommendation about books about the top of sex. To a fault, each of them recommended LaHaye's "The Act of Marriage." After finishing the book, I couldn't agree any more. As the title of this review suggests, this book is simply the best. Not a single addition or subtraction would add or take away anything from this book. It covers almost every topic, addresses every taboo, and provides several golden nuggets of advice. It's a wonderful book. I recommend it to all who are engaged, newly married, or married for decades!


This book was SOOOO helpful when my husband and i read it before our wedding! We were raised in church and virgins when we married and had always heard all the "No having sex before you're married" speeches but i didn't realize til we read this book how little positive, Christian perspective we'd been given on the gift of sex other than that the act was designed by God and children are a blessing. i'd heard so many wedding night horror stories from friends and was fairly terrified and confused about why that would be... i think the reviews that talk about how outdated this book is need to realize how long ago it was written and that maybe some parts weren't helpful to them but after i read it i thought this would be so helpful to all couples no matter how long they'd been married, i think everyone could gain something from reading it. There's probably many couples thinking they know all there is to know because they've been in a married sexual relationship for 40 years or whatever but the value of the chapters(and from a Christian perspective) about how the Lord designed different areas of our body to function is not something you can just learn from experience. And some couples who went into marriage more "experienced" maybe don't realize why they're experiencing some negative residual affects after marriage. i would just think that one could consider the fact that this dear couple who love the Lord and want to help couples in this area of their marriage and who WERE writing to a certain audience at a certain time, and could read this with a little grace, take the good, disregard what doesn't apply to you personally, and realize that this book has had so many editions printed, it is a classic that HAS helped so many couples and we can REJOICE in that, that is amazing and valuable, i recommend this book whenever the topic comes up and i have personally seen the Lord bless us so much because of what we learned reading this book!

A must for Christian newlyweds

This book was reccomended to me by a friend and I read it. I then had my fiance (now husband) read it. I've passed it on to an engaged friend and she is now passing it on to others.More than just a how-to book. It answers questions you're afraid to ask but need to know.

The Act of Marriage

As a young couple looking into marriage, our pastor gave us this book to read and discuss. It was life-changing. I came from a broken home. My mother was always too embarassed to answer all the many questions that I had. This book did so in such a clear, godly way. It also opened up the lines of communication between my husband and I before we were ever married. It is a wonderful study book for the couple. I was embarassed about some parts in it before we were married but it did lay an excellent foundation for our marriage. Personally, I will be requiring my children to read and study through this book prior to marriage as well. Don't miss it!
