Divorce rates for evangelical Christians are just as high as for any other segment of American society, but the experience is made even more painful by the judgmental attitudes divorcees encounter in their churches and from their clergy. By offering a deeper and more nuanced scriptural explanation of the role of grace (and humanity's need for it) in our understanding of divorce, Grace and Divorce seeks to uphold the ideals of marriage while emphasizing how love and acceptance can still be given to those whose marriages have not attained that ideal. - Publisher.

Your marriage is in crisis, and you've read countless books on how to make it work, but to no avail. You haven't seen sustainable change in your relationship, and you're ready to give up hope that counseling will be effective. You're weary of striving, and you may have even considered having an affair, doing violence to yourself or to your partner, or indulging in an addiction. Perhaps you already have. You cannot stomach another false promise or simplistic solution to the complex problems in your marriage, and you wonder, is there any other way? Grounds for Marriage speaks into the wreckage of broken covenants with a fresh perspective on relationship, refusing to apply flimsy bandages to fractured relationships and insisting that the core brokenness be addressed and genuinely repaired. This material helps couples and their counselors to honestly evaluate troubled marriages, providing a much-needed compassionate, sensible, hopeful, sound, and sometimes unexpected understanding of the scriptures and of relationship. Synchronizing personal story, anecdotes from her work as a Licensed Professional Counselor, and a review of literature in psychology and theology, Jade G. Stone helps couples in crisis to: --study the scriptures to determine what they say constitutes a marriage covenant --recognize how both partners contribute to failure in their marriage --heal from old wounds so they can be in covenantal relationship with God and with a covenant companion With no-nonsense directness and high-definition clarity, Stone helps you envision how human covenantal commitments must function in order to mirror intimacy with God. She presents the criteria of wholehearted covenant as a measuring stick for relational intimacy (grounds for marriage), without which you cannot determine what comprises broken intimacy (grounds for divorce). From a covenantal/relational perspective, you can maintain scriptural integrity, understanding, and wisdom as you evaluate a marriage in crisis. Grounds for Marriage includes a study guide to help readers personalize the concepts presented.

Toda mulher tem uma história que é moldada exclusivamente por ser mulher. Para muitas, essa história está escondida, hermeticamente trancada dentro de um coração partido. Mas, por trás de paredes de medo, raiva e mágoa, estão as feridas abertas. Por trás da maquiagem e do sorriso, mulheres em todos os lugares estão sofrendo. Estão confusas, com medo, assustadas – e em silêncio. Como corpo de Cristo, somos chamados para ministrar aos quebrados e feridos; não para ignorá-los, fazê-los calar e dizer a eles para superarem isso e seguirem em frente. Este Guia prático para o aconselhamento de mulheres é a resposta a esse apelo legítimo das mulheres. Este livro foi idealizado para conselheiros profissionais, bem como pastores e conselheiros leigos, que desejam entender melhor e ajudar mulheres.

Too often, couples enter remarriage unaware of potential problems and unprepared for the challenges stepfamily life will bring. The Heart of Remarriage takes a unique approach to success in remarriage by going straight to the heart, helping couples heal from the inside out rather than offering surface suggestions that may change circumstances but not the lives of couples and their families. Drs. Gary and Greg Smalley partner with remarried couple Dan and Marci Cretsinger to offer this marriage-changing idea: No matter what circumstances or challenges a remarried couple and their stepfamily face, the solution starts in their hearts. Remarried couples will learn how to examine their own hearts and heal them from the hurts of the past, so that they can be filled with God's love and let that love overflow to their family members. The Heart of Remarriage teaches readers how to create emotional security for every family member and offers practical ideas for connecting at the heart level with their spouse, children, and stepchildren. Couples will be encouraged to keep their hearts open and challenged to leave a family legacy of love.
