Publisher's Summary

Have you ever felt your marriage get cluttered up with sins and cumulative wrongs? Do you wish you could deal with it but don't know where to begin? 

Douglas Wilson loves to point out that the way you fix these sorts of sin pileups is the same way you declutter a garage: Begin with the first layer, work to the bottom, and then keep it clean. That's because the key to a good marriage is honest, complete, and humble confession of sin. 

This short, little audiobook, coming from a pastor with 40 years of experience, offers concrete practical suggestions about how to confess sin properly and how to avoid other snares married people tend to get snagged on, usually depending on whether they're the man or the woman. 

Decluttering Your Marriage will give you much gospel advice with much gospel encouragement. Features an extra checklist to help implement this audiobook in your day-to-day lives.

Concise yet powerful

This book identifies the handles that will help to keep a relationship strong or restore a broken marriage. I highly recommend the $3 investment for this book.

Great!

Should be a mandatory read for anybody who is going to get married or wants to get married. Any husband or wide that is having problems in marriage should read this book along with other books written by Douglas Wilson in regards to marriage.

The Premarital Counseling We Never Had

The title of this review is a bit facetious, yet on a serious note, if these principles are applied at the beginning, there will be no accumulated clutter. Pastor Wilson is the favorite for my wife and I when it comes to marriage, the family, and Covenantal Theology in general. The reading was consistent and clear. A perfect book to listen to together with your spouse instead of the television.

Short Book: Golden Principles

Have you ever wondered what it meant when Jesus told us "If you forgive people their wrongdoing, your heavenly Father will forgive you as well. But if you don't forgive people, your Father will not forgive your wrongdoing"? (Matthew 6:14-15 HCSB)

In this book, Pastor Doug Wilson hit me right between the eyes as he spelled out what obedience to Christ looks like in marriage for both the husband and the wife. This is not a self-help book; instead it is an extended discussion of "This is how the bible tells you to treat other people: get busy doing it in your marriage first and foremost." Get this book: it is worth every penny.

Powerful truths, but...

The content of the book is piercing. I’m certain I’ll be referring to these truths for quite awhile. However, I think the reader’s style and expression (or rather lack of), steals from the message itself. Nonetheless, I will still be
recommending the book (yes, even in the audible version).

Caustic paint thinner for the old paint on your marriage

To quote CS Lewis, “of course this book is not safe...but it’s very good!”. This book will challenge you to repent of your sins (even small ones) rather than “fix” your spouse. I believe it will definitely help your marriage as a result. So it’s not safe for you, but it’s very good for your marriage.

Short and Sweet

A great resource for regular attitude correction. Short, to the point, easy to read, challenging.
