One thought on “To Understand Each Other

  1. Steven Wedgeworth

    This is a fantastic little book It s very readable perhaps slightly too short I would recommend this book for marriage counseling, but also for basic social education I also found much of the insight helpful for pastoral counseling There s an extended consideration of the difference between the sexes, and much of modern complementarianism could stand to learn from Tournier.

    A 70 page quick read about why you should take your wife to the theatre every Friday and she should let her husband read the paper after a long day at workAppreciate that it was written for a different time but I really didn t feel there was much I could takeaway and use in the way of practical advice.

    In order to console, there is no need to say very much It is enough to listen, to understand, to love 23 In every man, even the most eminent and the apparently strongest, there remains something of the child who needs to be consoled 23 In order really to understand, we need to listen, not to reply 25 He who loves understands, and he who understands loves One who feels understood feels loved, and one who feels loved feels sure of being understood 28 In order to understand each other, man and wife [...]

    If this had been written today, the editors would have ruined it with all kinds of fluff, but instead, it is a concise yet penetrating combination of spirituality and psychology It is both challenging and inspiring Some of his examples are perhaps a bit dated, but overall, I highly recommend this book.

  7. Janelle

    Simple, short book that reminded me to intentionally work on understanding others and seeing life from their point of view Mainly written for the context of a marriage relationship, but I found that the book had some concepts that were great to apply in any relationship.

  8. Ashleigh Hebert

    Paul Tournier always emphasizes the importance of private prayer and meditation, and here he shows how crucial it is for closeness in marriage I gave this book to my friend Hannah Griffith, and wish I could find copies to give to my other married friends.
