Closer by Jim and Cathy Burns is exactly what the subtitle says: Devotions to Draw Couples Together.
This book is different though from a typical couples' devotion. Instead of having the couple do a nightly (or daily) devotion, it suggests you set aside thirty minutes once a week to complete a devotion as a couple.
That's right...you complete the devotion together...you don't just read it and answer a few quick questions. The questions are not intense, exactly, but they do require some thinking. Each week's devotion begins with Scripture followed by a story. It helps you to have "Faith Conversations" and then gives you space (and lines) to write in the area called "A Step Closer."
If in the past you have thought devotionals didn't go deep enough to help you and your spouse think about your relationship and bring you closer together, this may be for you.
This book was provided by Bethany House Publishers for me to review.
