“Mission Possible” by Deborah McCarragher

Unequally-yoked marriage?

Women, are you in an unequally-yoked marriage?   Are you tired of attending church alone?  Do you yearn for a relationship with your husband that’s spiritually satisfying?  You can influence your home for Christ even within a spiritually mismatched marriage.

“Remember that ‘the battle is the Lord’s’ (1 Samuel 17:47) and earnestly give the salvation of your mate to God in prayer.  Early on in your conversion it seems easier to be hopeful concerning your husband’s salvation.  You will need an added measure of faith as the years go by.”  (Excerpt from Chapter 1-You’ve Embraced Christ-Now What?)

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to stand in the gap for you mate’s soul.  This small book is a powerful tool for any woman who is married to a man who does not share her passion for Jesus.  Every woman knows someone who is struggling with this in their marriage.  It will encourage and challenge the reader to embrace God’s promises for their spouse and future together.  In this book you will:

  • Discover how to believe with radical faith for your spouse’s salvation
  • Learn the secret to “staying the course” while you wait for your promise
  • Find out why many women don’t like to share their “secret sorrow”
  • Overcome your own fears and doubts about your husband’s future with God
  • Join other women in the knowledge that God has a perfect plan of unity for you and your spouse.

At just 80 pages this short book is an “easy read”, but has much to say. You will refer back to it over and over again…   This “life changing” book is one you will not want to put down… The “mission” is one in which you, the reader, will join one woman’s quest to reach her husband for Christ.

Author Deborah McCarragher had a desire to publish her first book, MISSION POSSIBLE –Spiritual Covering for years, but it literally “sat on a spiritual shelf” until God released her to have it printed in late 2007.  It has since been revised and re-released in 2009 to include Bible study questions at the end of each chapter.

The book addresses the struggles and difficulty of a marriage when one spouse finds the Lord first.  Being unequally yoked after you are married presents a unique situation.

Deborah’s mission is to encourage women through scripture to believe in God’s Word to transform their husbands, and by challenging women to minister to their spouses in a way that glorifies God.  The author’s candid approach makes this book an easy read, and compels the reader to join her in her quest to reach her husband for Christ.  Alabaster Box Publishing’s motto is:  Books to stir your mind & stretch your Soul!

Review:

D.L. McCarragher’s book, Mission Possible, does include the different ways to be interceding for your husband’s salvation, including:

  • Discovering how to believe with radical faith for your spouse’s salvation
  • Learning the secret to “staying the course” while you wait for your promise
  • Finding out why many women don’t like to share their “secret sorrow”
  • Overcoming your own fears and doubts about you husband’s future with God
  • Joining other women in the knowledge that God has a perfect plan of unity for you and your spouse.

However, I found that Deborah’s book went much deeper.  It encapsulates the message of the Gospel for all who read it and is a good reminder to those who are ‘seasoned’ in the Word.

I do not believe this book is only about husbands, though that is the main subject of the book.  It can be used for husbands to pray for their wives’ salvation as well.  As the author quotes from 1 Corinthians 7:16 “…For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, O husband whether you will save your wife?”

I believe in the basics of the book, but there are some texts taken out of context.  None that would hinder the message of the book in seeing a spouse saved.

For a small, compact book, this one packs it all in!  And it also includes a Bible study after each chapter called ‘Seek and Find.’  Then you can encapsulate what you learned personally on the following page.

This book was provided by the author in exchange for my honest opinion.  No monetary compensation was exchanged.

  1. Thank you for your kind words and thoughtful comments regarding my book Mission Possible. It is an honor to share with you and your readers the message of hope and encouragement contained within its pages. God inspired me to write it during an intense time of intercessory prayer, and I know He holds dear to His heart women who are living in a spiritually mismatched marriage.

    To Him be all the glory…
