Uncommon Wisdom for an Uncommon Adventure

I received this book free of charge from Tyndale House Publishers for review purposes.

I have admired Tony Dungy as a coach, a commentator, and a person for years. He has always struck me as humble and firm in his faith with a commitment to excellence. Although it is a devotional, this book has only solidified my opinion of him as a man and a Christian. The book is written for married couples in celebration of the marriage commitment as well as for guidance in day-to-day living for husbands and wives. The core practices described are grounded in Scripture and designed to support eight core principles that will enhance a person's marriage. It is clear that marriage is something they have worked hard at and invested a great deal of time in.

The daily readings aren't going to "fix" problems, but will open the door to developing a greater understanding your spouse. This book is practical and challenging as it calls for husbands and wives to "live out" their commitment to one another. It is an encouragement to not give up hope for those who are struggling as well as a refresher for those who are in a good place, but want to fine tune their relationship with their spouse. Marriage is an adventure that is worth it, make the commitment and take the journey. Take this book along for guidance.
