"With endless reports on divorce rates, it is heartening to read a book which seeks to raise our sights - to appreciate the great purposes of God in our marriages, to understand how God first created marriage and to see how he will bring it to completion in heaven. A book to be bought, read and lent."-- January 2007, Evangelical Now, Mary Davies, Minister wife
Dr Vibert has written an excellent book on marriage and marriage relationships. This work is sensitive, challenging, and born out of a clear biblical understanding of the subject matter combined with a wealth of pastoral experience. I warmly recommend it.-- Paul Gardner
'What a helpful, engaging, and God honoring book! Knowing it will help marriages at any stage, I will highly recommend The Diamond Marriage to my congregation and to others with whom I speak.'-- Joel C. Hunter, Senior Pastor Northland, A Church Distributed, located at several sites in Central Florida.
'Here is a monumental work of love and energy, from one of the most effective Christian ministers in the UK. Today, when the foundations of marriage are under attack from outside and within the church, The Diamond Marriage comes as a book that is timely and urgently needed among us all '-- Richard Bewes OBE
''This is a well informed book and constructively addresses crucial questions which many other marriage books tend to neglect'-- Ann Benton, Author and Speaker.
'This is a truly excellent book. I warmly commend The Diamond Marriage for its practical wisdom and theological insight into the ultimate purpose of Christian Marriage. I encourage you to read it and work through the practical exercises aimed at reviving healthy and god-glorifying marriages which will be invaluable at a time when marriage is under unprecedented assault from all sides. Simon has done us a great service.'-- Wallace Benn, Bishop of Lewes
