I love Richard Dawkins! I recently read "The God Delusion" and I have "The Greatest Show on Earth" in my bookshelf, waiting to be read.

Right now, I am reading "The Burgess Boys" by Elizabeth Strout and "The Omnivore's Dilemma" by Michael Pollan.

I've been reading Red Scarf Girl, a memoir of the Cultural Revolution in China.
Very interesting.
I highly recommend it to others.

I've been aware of that book for a couple of years and have been curious what's in it. I think I might have heard Dr. Harley refer to it once on the radio show, but he didn't give the title. He said it wasn't very well received.

Let us know what's in there!

I would say that the marriage work of the last few years have definitely moved me from merely talking about my faith to engaging in it with actual, tangible action. Without that even being the emphasis, learning to have a good marriage transformed my faith.


If you are serious about saving your marriage, you can't get it all on this forum. You've got to listen to the Marriage Builders Radio show, every day. Install the app!

Married to my radiant trophy wife, Prisca, 17 years, who is a beautiful angel.
Attended Marriage Builders weekend in May 2010

If your wife is not on board with MB, some of my posts to other men might help you.

This is a good book.
I have taught Sunday School a few times in the past (when the teacher is gone) and I think it would be a good book for a Sunday School class to go through

I think this book is my favorite Harley book.

Email to Radio Show:

Greetings;

I wanted to let you know that I purchased a used copy of Get Growing, Christian! (from Amazon)
I have heard Dr. Harley mention it on the Radio Show and state that it was not well received. However, I think it contains an action plan that could be examined by Sunday School classes to help spread the Gospel.
I am going to share it with my Sunday School teacher and request that he consider going through it with the class.
Does Marriage Builders have extra copies of this book available?
I feel that this book is my favorite of all of your books I have read.

5 year necro bump;

Bought the audiobook "Un@#$ Yourself" based only on the following review:


"Nothing is more motivating than being gently chided by a man with a thick Scottish accent."

I was not disappointed.
