Description

Someone came between Lee and Leslie Strobel, threatening to shipwreck their marriage. No, it wasn't an old flame. It was Jesus Christ. Leslie's decision to become a follower of Jesus brought heated opposition from her skeptical husband. They began to experience conflict over a variety of issues, from finances to child-rearing. But over time, Leslie learned how to survive a spiritual mismatch. Today they're both Christians--and they want you to know that there is hope if you're a Christian married to a nonbeliever. In their intensely personal and practical book, they reveal:

  • Surprising insights into the thinking of non-Christian spouses
  • A dozen steps toward making the most of your mismatched marriage
  • Eight principles for reaching out to your partner with the gospel
  • Advice for raising your children in a spiritually mismatched home
  • How to pray for your spouse--plus a 30-day guide to get you started
  • What to do if you're both Christians but one lags behind spiritually
  • Advice for single Christians to avoid the pain of a mismatch
  • Also in This Series

          Lee Strobel, whose bestselling The Case for Christ has become a standard work of evangelical apologia, was once not a Christian at all, and was openly hostile to the faith. When his wife, Leslie, became a Christian several years into their marriage, he was furious, and their union seemed doomed until "Leslie figured out how to live out her faith in a way that began to attract rather than repel ." In Surviving a Spiritual Mismatch in Marriage, the Strobels describe their experiences in order to help other Christians particularly women who are married to nonbelievers. Although their own ending (culminating in his conversion) followed the Christian storybook, they caution readers that it is better to concentrate on one's own spiritual growth and example than to have unrealistic expectations about a spouse's future conversion.

          High school sweethearts whose marriage seemed to have been made in heaven, the Strobels enjoyed a good life with two children and experienced few problems until Leslie became a committed Christian, much to the dismay of her husband, a confirmed atheist. The Strobels struggled along in this "spiritually mismatched" state for quite a while until Lee made the conscious decision to become a Christian as well. The Strobels do not advise couples who strongly disagree about religion to marry, but their book offers useful advice to couples who are spiritually mismatched, either from the beginning of their relationship or through a change in belief. Ideas about raising children and advice for single Christians are also included. Written in the first person, usually by Lee, the text is readable and helpful. While not a substitute for professional marriage counseling, the Strobels' suggestions are based on years of practical experience and will be useful for a Christian audience. Recommended for church libraries and for public libraries serving a sizable Christian population. Mary Prokop, Savannah Country Day Preparatory Sch. Lib., GA
