Millions recognize Gavin MacLeod as the happy-go-lucky captain on TV's "Love Boat." but few are aware of the pain Gavin masked behind his brilliant smile. Although he was outwardly successful, personal contentment eluded him. He and his wife, Patti, began their marriage with drams of living "happily ever after." They were divorced nine years later. But there is a happy ending - today they are remarried as the result of commitment to each other.

Back on Course is the story of Patti and Gavin's courtship, marriage, divorce, and remarriage. By sharing their story, the MacLeods show you how even the most devastating circumstances can be used for good by a loving God. Gavin and Patti also provide "Ten Rules for a Happily Ever After Marriage," which will help you revive or reconcile your own marriage. You, too, can learn to trust God to guide you through the rough seas of matrimony.

Review Date: 11/16/2005


Bing Crosby was enormously talented, but with an indolent and irresponsible bent. He was also intelligent and cunning, and created for himself an enchanting image and a legend that was so often repeated in authorized biographies that it was accepted as fact.

Now, in the compelling biography by Donald Shepherd and Robert E. Slatzer, the image is shattered and the legend stripped away - revealing the shocking truth about the man and the innocent people who suffered immeasurably for having touched him.
