Overview

The unfortunate reality is that Christians are separating and divorcing at the same rate as the unbelieving world. But does separation have to mean the end? You may not feel like reconciling. You may not see hope for a reunion. But the biblical ideal for a separated couple is reconciliation. So how do you do it?
When doors slam and angry words fly, when things just aren't working out, and even when your spouse has abandoned your trust, there is hope. Hope for the Separated will show you through God's Word that your marriage can be restored. Recognizing that restoration will not happen for everyone, Dr. Chapman also gives insightful advice for those who experience the pain of divorce.

Read an Excerpt

Thousands of people experienced marital separation last year. I am certain that many of them sincerely want to know, "What should I do, as a Christian?"

But for those who really want help, even if the medicine is "hard to swallow," read on. Your chances of recovery are good.

    Extremely helpful during a stressful time

    This book gave me hope, built my faith, and helped me find a direction for healing. Don't give up! Both sides of separation are discussed with deep insight and biblical guidance. It gave me a plan which kept my self respect intact.

    A must read book

    Although it looks as if I am still going to have to go through with a divorce. This book brought me closer to God.
