Book Review

Spoken for is a brilliant read, which draws upon biblical promises as well as biographical anecdotes from Gunn and Bethke. They remind readers that, whether married or single, Christians have been chosen and pursued by God, and he should be our first love.

The book is written in an informative, yet personal way. Through a dual authorship, Gunn and Bethke discuss their own, very different, experiences of love. It was encouraging to see that, no matter what their circumstances, whether upsetting or joyful, they never stopped focusing on God and what he has done for us.

Throughout the various chapters, Gunn and Bethke continually emphasise God’s great love for his people and how, ultimately, it is our relationship with God that defines our identity. I thoroughly enjoyed Spoken for. It was incredibly moving and I look forward to reading it again.
