Overview

Cameron Conant met the girl of his dreams. He fell in love, followed her to California, and eventually married her. Both were twentysomething Christians. Both were committed to each other and to their mutual faith. And then their relationship fell apart. Unflinching in the face of messy questions, With or Without You tells the all-too-real story of how sin, separation, anger, and depression can ravage the fragile bond between husband and wife - and how, following a painful divorce, the grace of Christ can step in to piece together broken lives. In this engaging memoir, Conant refuses to whitewash his own failures or soften the edges of his shattered spirit. The result is an intensely personal glimpse into one twentysomething's journey from love to heartbreak to redemption.

    With or Without You: A Spiritual Journey Through Love and Divorce

    Mr. Conant's book, With or Without You-A Spiritual Journey Through Love and Divorce, is a book well worth taking the time to read. Actually, it takes very little time - as you start reading you can't put the book down because you want to see what is going to happen next. Cameron's story is a sad one, but at the same time hopeful. He has made it through this difficult time in his life and his book will help others through their pain and suffering when it comes to divorce. BRAVO, Mr. Conant.

    With or Without You: A Spiritual Journey Through Love and Divorce

    The book, With or Without You-A Spiritual Journey Through Love and Divorce, by Cameron Conant, is one of the best books I have read on the subject of divorce. As a professional dealing with divorcing couples, I find that this book has a positive image for those going through the heartache of divorce. Many of the people I have recommended this book to have been able to relate to the emotions which Cameron so aptly expresses. The book ends on a note of hope for the future, as the author shares what he has learned from this painful experience.

    true to life

    Cameron's story shows what goes on behind closed doors of a outwardly 'perfect couple.' I have to say that I know many of these young marrieds and can only image a small percentage of what this experience must have been for him. Excellent read for those who know a young couple dealing with the harsh realities of divorce.

    Wow!!

    I loved this book!! The author skillfully draws you into this story of love and heartbreak. It was even an emotional journey for me - I felt I was going through the experience myself. I will be a lot more sensitive to others going through a divorce after reading this.

    Awesome Book

    This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. It was so much more than just a book about divorce. It shows how God can heal a person and make things so much better. No matter how broken we think we are God can help us. Thank you so much for writing this book it will touch so many people.

    Honest??

    After reading this book, I don't know how it would help the average person going through divorce. It seems that the author set the marriage up for failure. By his own account, the relationship was built on lies that he started telling his ex-wife even before they married, including wanting to marry her in the first place. He says he felt emotionless at the wedding ceremony! Then he's surprised when the marriage doesn't work out? Something just doesn't make sense.

    Healing Honesty

    Conant¿s honesty will speak volumes to those who¿ve experienced divorce or those facing marital struggles or. While he openly admits his own struggles and shortcomings, his attempts to live up to unreachable expectations are eye-opening. This book could save your marriage¿even before it starts. Or if it¿s in ended, it will help heal the wounds of broken love through the painful journey that Conant shares.

    a must read book!

    Heart-wrenching, introspective, and full of the big questions, this is one book everyone should read. I have never been through a divorce, never even been married, but reading this book has helped me to feel a part of what that pain is like. It also has opened my eyes to the idea that divorce doesn't equal failure, and that God can still make all things new. Everything that is broken can be redeemed. Though I haven't been broken by a situation like divorce, this book helped me work through the pain of other hard circumstances that had made me think I was broken too far for repair. Thank you Cameron for writing this book.

    Michelle...baffled...

    I'm not sure I understand the point of this book, adn so I don't think I could recommend it...I've got to say that I felt a bit guilty as I read things that, in my opinion, should be kept between a husband and wife...divorced or not. In one spot in the book the author says that his intent was not to hurt his ex-wife by retelling their tragic marriage...bt then at theend he says he had no intention of even informing his ex-wife of the books existence. What I found interesting is that the author actually admits in the book that he has a tendency to lie for self-protection. No wonder Sara was concerned about this book! I guess I'm a bit baffled as to how this story is meant to help others...

    compelling

    Just a few years ago, divorce was something my friends' parents went through. Now it's something my friends are going through. Cameron wrote With or Without You with the pain of divorce still fresh in his memory. His narratives are so gut-wrenching, you'll want to put the book down and look away. But inevitably you'll find you... just... can't. In between narratives are a few chapters of deep introspection--Cameron asks tough, poingant questions about himself, his former wife, his friends, his family and even God. This ain't no 'seven practical tips on making it through divorce' book. But it is one of the best books I've ever read by a first-time author. If you know someone going through a divorce, DON'T buy this book for them. Buy it for yourself so you can get a taste of what they're going through and understand how to enter their pain and walk with them.
