About Playing Hurt:
A marriage book that husbands will actually want to read!

Everyone admires people who play hurt, from the superstar athlete to the journeyman player who finishes the game even when hurt, sick, or falling apart. Everyone looks up to these athletes and wants to mimic their “never give up”attitude. Except when it comes to marriage. Most husbands are willing to take a bullet for their wives in a life-and-death situation; but when his bride fires the bullet--hurls an insult, disrespects him in public, ignores his foreplay in private--he’d rather throw in the towel than play through the pain.

Playing Hurt is a biblical playbook for marriage that speaks in the language most men understand—the language of sports. Using a sports analogy to explain the motivation, means, and methods of playing hurt, author Brian Goins shows men how to overcome the temptation to stay on the bench. Playing Hurt is more about inspiration than instruction. It’s about finding the motivation to stay in the game, despite the pain. It’s about becoming like the One who knew more about nails and thorns than any superstar athlete. Using Ephesians 5 as a biblical basis, this book will call husbands to be the heroes they long to be--men who play hurt in order to win at marriage.

My Husabnds thoughts:
This book was reviewed by my husband. He normally does not care for marriage books but loved this one. He liked how it was written by a man for men. The author uses the idea of        “Playing Hurt” and how it can benefit your marriage. This would be a great gift for married men because like my husband said it is a book men will want to read. At the end of each chapter is the “Hot Seat” which asks questions about the chapter again this would be great for a men group to study.
One of the best concepts in the book is new posters for your wall. It is the idea that as children we put up posters of who we want to be. As an adult the author talks about who those posters should look like. Great concept and men will love it. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
·         I received a copy of this book for my husband’s honest opinions. No other compensation was received

  1. What an interesting idea -- the fact that your husband not only read a "marriage" book, but liked it is a great endorsement :)
