Publisher's Weekly Review

Occult authors don't have a monopoly on Valentine's Day, judging from the pile of winter relationship books from Christian publishers. One useful title is H. Norman Wright's The Complete Book of Christian Wedding Vows: The Importance of How You Say "I Do". In addition to providing practical advice ("Expect something to go wrong at your wedding!" he tells all couples in premarital counseling), Wright offers tips on writing Christ-centered vows and presents sample wedding prayers from several different Christian denominations.
