An in-depth study of the vital principles from the best-selling Cracking the Communication Code now in workbook form.
Communication between couples has been dissected in thousands of books and articles, so why does it remain the number one marriage problem? "Because," says Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, "most spouses dont know that they speak two different languages. They are sending each other messages in code, but they wont crack that code until they see that she listens to hear the language of love and he listens to hear the language of respect." Dr. Eggerichs best-selling book, Love and Respect, launched a revolution in how couples relate to each other. Now with the Cracking the Communication Code companion workbook, the message of this hardcover trade book can be studied and applied whether for a group or for individual couples. The result will be better communication, mutual understanding, and a successful godly marriage.
Dr. Eggerichs spends quite a bit of time reviewing the main principles from his first book, Love and Respect. I think this review is good, since not many of us who have read Love and Respect have completely mastered its principles.
Fortunately, the author doesnt stop there, but gives a number of scripturally-based suggestions for ways to communicate, which any believer can put into practice with Gods help. Coupled with this are many pertinent anecdotes from his own life and the lives of some who have attended his seminars.
The foundational principle given is that we are to do everything as unto the Lord. This includes the way we speak to others. Dr. Eggerichs puts handles on Jesus model of forgiveness and His way of speaking, giving the husband and wife very practical tools to use when they talk with each other. All of this provides the key to good communication, which is mutual understanding.
The only book above criticism is the Bible. So, it is no surprise that I found at least three places where the author used Scripture to prove text. However, these would not lead the reader to any erroneous conclusions. Therefore, I can unreservedly recommend Cracking the Communication Code as an excellent resource for any husband and/or wife who have the desire to improve their marriage to the glory of God.

Less than 2 weeks ago, I took it with me to a family gathering and had in mind to share it with my brother who has found himself, unfortunately, in the middle of an unwanted divorce. He does not enjoy reading books, but thanked me for it and took it home. He has since read through chapter 10 with a report of it being "Life changing." I'm still praying for their marriage to find healing but what a positive step towards emotional health.
