Gary Chapman's Loving Your Spouse When You Feel Like Walking Away: Real Help for Desperate Hearts in Difficult Marriages offers real, practical wisdom -- from one who has thought deep and long about marriage -- for those who feel at the end of their rope. Martial dangers lurk around nearly every corner, and some of them go unnoticed even when encountered in the clear light of day. Chapman helps couples name those shadows and reject their lies. His is a pastoral wisdom that helps us reject the myths our culture might teach us to believe, in order to create the lasting marriages for which we long.
But that's precisely what makes Loving Your Spouse so difficult to read. Each chapter will cover topics that we'd rather not talk about -- from workaholic lives to depressed, controlling, abusive, uncommunicative, unfaithful, and addicted spouses. Reading about martial struggle is never easy reading.
But it is necessary reading.
And none more necessary than Chapman's new book.
I'll be recommending this one for years to come.
