What others say about... 
The Essentials of an Excellent Christian Marriage

‘I have read this book with the eyes of an African Pastor. The book amazingly cuts through cultures just like the Bible does. This comes from Richard’s rich exposure to the African cultures where he has lived and served for many years. Richard has provided practical exercises at the end of each chapter, which makes the book so helpful both as counselling manual and also for group studies. I strongly recommend this book.’

– Pastor Peter Kasirivu

‘Richard has done it again! A simple yet profound presentation of such a seemingly complex subject that many leave untouched. “The Essentials of an Excellent Christian Marriage” is both soundly Scriptural and amazingly practical. I highly recommend it for use by Pastors and Christian Marriage Counsellors.’

– Rev Kihu Mwangi

‘Richard writes with conviction and wisdom about marriage. His strength on this topic comes from his own personal relationship experiences, growth and depth over a span of 40 years. This message is inspirational and offers much hope. It is a useful tool with simple yet powerful practical examples on how to keep your marriage fresh and alive. I highly recommend this book to anyone dating, aspiring to date and already in a marriage.’

– Bishop Nathan Amooti Rusengo

‘I have been in full–time ministry for more than 30 years and have not read such an instructive and inspiring book on marriage. It is an excellent training manual designed for use by Christian leaders.’

– Dr. John A. Ugbeshi, Zonal Overseer, Truth and Life Ministry, Kaduna, Nigeria

‘A group of pastors and their spouses here studied this book. We were of one mind that this manual will be a wonderful weapon in our ministry. We need this material to help churches to be healthy.’

– Pastor Evance Nauliya, Founder of Free Faith Outreach Ministries, Malawi

‘This is an excellent marriage book for married couples and those preparing to marry. What you read in this book will make your marriage alive and joyful.’
