Review-Mark & Grace Driscoll's Real Marriage-DVD Study

This DVD-based study kit is meant to accompany Mark and Grace Driscoll's book "Real Marriage-The Truth About Sex, Friendship, & Life Together". The kit includes a leader's guide, a study guide for non-leading participants, and a DVD of short (15-20 minute) discussion-starters featuring the two authors.

It starts out in an amusing way: Mark and Grace Driscoll are sitting in the church building where they exchanged vows nearly two decades ago. Interspersed with their commentary are clips of their actual wedding. Both are recognizable, but very different. Seeing a 20-year-old Mark Driscoll is a bit jarring.

As for the content, it's a good mix of the two talking about their own experiences, struggles, and memories, as well as the lessons learned, which can be applied to most any marriage.

I like it. The clips are interesting, the questions insightful, and the material challenging. One potential issue is the frank talk about sex. While it's good for a couple to discuss together, I'm not sure how it would work in a small group setting.
