Unequally Yoked: Staying Committed to Jesus and Your Unbelieving Spouse by Miranda J. Chivers is a nonfiction, inspirational book that looks at one of the complexities of marriage between people of different faith traditions. What does it take to make a marriage succeed when your partner doesn’t share your faith? How do you handle the perennial itch to win them over when discussing your faith is taboo? In this book, Miranda J. Chivers offers intelligent answers to these and similar questions, and creates a road map that readers can use to ensure they experience a successful and happy marriage, regardless of the differences they share with their spouses. In Unequally Yoked, readers will discover the tools they need to nurture their faith while creating an atmosphere conducive for love and friendship to grow in their family. While this is a very sensitive and important topic, the author approaches the subject with wisdom and intelligence, drawing inspiration from her faith and personal experience, and filling her message with realistic examples.

One has the feeling of discussing the topic with someone who speaks from a rich spiritual and human experience, someone who shares her hard-won lessons in marriage and who has gained the wisdom that allows her to mature through the challenging journey. The writing is polished and fluid and the diction very accessible. Although this book is written for Christians, it contains practical wisdom that anyone needs to make a marriage successful, because at the core of it are the tools required to make it work with someone who thinks quite differently from us. Unequally Yoked: Staying Committed to Jesus and Your Unbelieving Spouse is a gem for spouses, no matter what their faith.
