Playing Hurt: A Guy’s Strategy for a Winning Marriage
13 in stock
Everyone looks up to 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.
Brian Goins and his wife Jen love building into families and eating great food together. They have three children who all want to move to Montana.
Brian serves as VP of Content Development at FamilyLife. He is also the executive producer on an adolescent-focused documentary series called Brain, Heart, World (brainheartworld.org) aimed at helping change the conversation about pornography in our country and has written Playing Hurt: A Guy’s Strategy for a Winning Marriage.
