Surviving a Spiritual Mismatch in Marriage, by Lee and Leslie Strobel
I picked this book up after having seen it mentioned by a few trustworthy articles on couples who are unequally yoked.  I know that Lee Strobel is better known for other books, but this is the first of his that I've read.  I was impressed not only by his ca...
