The Exemplary Husband
by Stuart Scott
Books about marriage are everywhere these days, but books that deal with the subject from a purely biblical perspective are surprisingly hard to find.

Couples who read the two books together are sure to reap great benefits in their marriage relationship.
When People Are Big and God is Small
by Ed Welch
There are certain concepts in our modern terminology that seem to have nothing to do with the Bible. "Codependency," "peer pressure," and other words from pop psychology seem to fit into this category. Yet Ed Welch ably shows that these are problems that are spiritual at their core, and therefore must be dealt with according to Scripture. This is a book that will help you to see that God's Word touches far more areas of our lives than we sometimes think.
by Jerry Bridges
Have Christians become so preoccupied with the major sins of our society that we have lost sight of our need to deal with our own more subtle sins? In this book, Jerry Bridges returns to his trademark theme of holiness and addresses a dozen clusters of specific "acceptable" sins that we tend to tolerate in ourselves... such as jealousy, anger, pride, unthankfulness, and judgmentalism. This is a very convicting book!

Pink unpacks the truth about God from Scripture in order to show Him in all His multifaceted glory. At right around 100 pages, this is a classic that everyone can, and should read.
