Praise for The B.E.S.T. Marriage

"Marriages are either getting better or worse. They are never static. Aim for the BEST and your marriage will get better. With transparency about his own marriage, and with a touch of British humor, Anthony Delaney points the way to a better marriage."
Gary D. Chapman, author of The 5 Love Languages

"I'm so grateful that Anthony has written The B.E.S.T. Marriage. Nick and I are constantly seeking ways to improve our marriage, and this book is full of wisdom and practical ways to do just that."
Christine Caine, founder, A21 and Propel Women

"This might not be a magic wand that instantly transforms your marriage, but it is a toolbox of brilliance that will equip you to develop your BEST marriage. Devoid of platitudes and quick-fix answers, instead Anthony Delaney has written a book that is thought-provoking, funny, and engaging. Above all it's practical and realistic. I loved it. Probably one of the best books you'll read on the vital subject of marriage." 
Paul McGee, The SUMO Guy; Sunday Times bestselling author and husband to the same woman for over thirty years

"Anthony is always practical, down-to-earth, inspiring, and authentic; this timely and significant book establishes principles and practices that will change the game for your marriage. A must-read!"
Danielle Strickland, social justice advocate, Boundless Communications

"Anthony Delaney is honest, practical, and inspiring about what's involved in building a marriage. He writes from his own experience of all that he and Zoe have learned over the years of their own marriage and what has kept them going through tough times. "However good your marriage is, you have room for more, for better, for best, with the reward of building life with somebody you love, who loves you," he writes. We defy anyone to read this wonderful book and not to find ways to improve their own marriage."
Nicky and Sila Lee

Marriage is an excellent resource for those longing for a marriage that will go the distance, which God intends for this sacred covenant." 
James Emery White
Founding and Senior Pastor of Mecklenburg Community Church

"There are few things more powerful or God-honoring than a strong, fruitful, joyful, and loving marriage. Love in marriage is the foundation of society. The basis for flourishing families. Proof of God in this world. Thank you, Anthony, for providing within this book the necessary help and insight to check our own hearts and be reminded of the biblical wisdom we all need to see our marriages grow and thrive. I highly recommend this book to any couple that desires to move forward into a joyful and fruitful marriage."

"In our lifetime, the idea of marriage has fallen from being an honored union to being ridiculed, dismissed, and today, rarely even tried. But Anthony Delaney's refreshing new book, The B.E.S.T. Marriage, is a powerful reminder that marriage isn't just important, but it can be exciting, inspiring, and, most of all, for life. It's time we stopped settling for an average anything—especially when it comes to marriage. Get this book. We hope it will kick-start a revolution and create a generation of marriages that could potentially change the world." 
Phil and Kathleen Cooke
Writers, TV and film producers, and cofounders of Cooke Media Group in Los Angeles

"The bonds of marriage aren't worth much, unless the interest is kept up! Anthony Delaney reveals the four vital components to having the BEST marriage. Every couple preparing for marriage and every married couple I know would benefit from reading and applying the wisdom in this book." 
J. John

"We've witnessed Anthony and Zoe's marriage up close and attest that this isn't theory; they model enjoying a great marriage in today's pressurized world. We've all got so much to learn for our relationships not only to survive but thrive, and this book is a great place to start."
