Elsa Bobb Torrance Bobb
Love Courtship and Marriage is as revealing and reflective as the authors. Dr. Torrance and Rev. Elsa Bobb are both ordained Pastors and have been serving each other in love for over fifty years. A proven fact that love can last forever.
The book speaks to those who are planning on getting married and for those already married. The pages are filled with encouragement and practical ways to keep love as the foundation of your marriage. “If you are going to be involved in something that you know you will be around for, for a long time, you should do everything within your power for that thing to be as good or as nice as you can make it. Don't allow problems to drive a wedge in your relationship; instead, as you work to solve them, you can draw closer together. It is important for spouses to commit themselves to each other. Couples should determine that their marriage will be a permanent lifelong relationship…that they are in it for the long haul.”
Building on the foundation of their love for God and their love for each other, Dr. Torrance and Rev. Elsa Bobb share on the pages of the their new book, Love Courtship and Marriage, some hands-on ways they have enriched their lives and established a strong foundation from the start, which still keeps them going on, down through the years.
As stated in the book, “Hardly anything can be learned without some instructions. Seems we are willing to learn by reading a manual to operate a complicated equipment, but many couples simply believe that they know what should be done in marriage.
“Marriages will be more successful if spouses are adequately prepared. If we want love to last and consequently marriage, we need to follow the principles of the Designer of love and marriage as given by Him and as outlined in the Bible. To be sure, God is the one who said, “It is not good for the man to be alone.”
