“Recommend to those intending to get into marriage in the near/far future…”

Marry Wisely, Marry Well is a good examination of what makes a good relationship.”
Reviewer: H. Marshall
Rating: 5 Stars

“I’ve encountered a lot of books on courtship and dating during my college years, many of them being by Josh Harris and Elisabeth Elliot. This book stands out in its pursuit of applying biblical wisdom to the area of dating and preparation for marriage. If you work with singles and students this a resource that will provide them an understanding of God’s design for relationships that will guard them from much heart ache in the future. I would especially recommend walking a young adult through this book in the context of mentoring.”

“The book which is simple and easy to read is filled with scripture reference and stories. I think what impressed me the most was the Marriage Project at the end of the book.”
Reviewer: Sherry Legan
Rating: 5 Stars

“I love the evaluation of dating, courtship, online dating, and other spouse finding methods in relation to scripture. As a parent, it can be difficult to find the right Biblical mix for your teenagers without being overly legalistic. I like that Baker cuts through some of the arguments for and against each method by evaluating where it is adding to or taking away from scripture… All in all, I found this book to be a very helpful addition to our library, and it is one that I will refer to often as we continue into the years in which my children will begin to evaluate marriage and the relationships that they wish to have in the romantic sphere of life.”

“As a married man reading this book, I see so many aspects of my life that are still in need of improvement. Marry Wisely, Marry Well could be a useful resource for Christians who made some major mistakes in the pre-marital phase of their relationship with their spouse. For the single person, this book is a gold mine for areas that may not be on the radar (or that are being ignored because singleness is an area of struggle and weakness).”
Reviewer: Chrys Jones
Rating: 4 Stars

Marry Wisely, Marry Well is a much-needed drink of biblical wisdom for equipping singles in preparation for marriage. Ernie Baker points us back to Scripture in considering how those unmarried as myself can begin to prepare ourselves for marriage even before we are in a romantic relationship. His work both examines and equips. He asks heart-probing questions throughout the book.”
Reviewer: Theron St. John
Rating: 5 Stars

“This book could well be used in counseling prior to marriage, but I would recommend even that parents and junior high and high school students read through this and settle their hopes and dreams of marriage in God and His Will.”
Reviewer: Peter Butler Jr.
Rating: 5 Stars

“This book would be an excellent addition to a homeschooling character study since a lot of homeschooling is about building strong character in children. Parents and young adults alike will benefit from Baker’s biblical approach and parental wisdom. Marry Wisely, Marry Well is a top-notch book on the topic of preparing for marriage and should read by anyone who will be facing these life decisions in the near future.”
Reviewer: Aaron Cerda
Rating: 4 Stars
