We know very little about the marriages of our church heroes, which is why Michael Haykin has provided us a wonderful gift in this little book, The Christian Lover. Haykin compiled letters from both the husband and wife of 12 different reformers and significant Christian leaders of the past that give us a glimpse into their intimate marriages ranging from seasons of courtship to facing death. If you are looking for a different and valuable gift for Valentine’s Day, look no further. This has been one of my favorite resources I am reading as I write my book on the pastor’s family. Get it. Read it. Both the Christian husband and wife will learn how to love the other more deeply.
