About the Author

Jim Turner has been in youth or pastoral ministry for over twenty-five years and has personally experienced the pain and damage caused by disconnection. He is divorced as a direct result of his former disconnection, father of four incredible young adults, and now remarried and living in the delight of being truly connected with his wife. He has individually fought the battle to overcome disconnection and has entered into rich and fruitful relationships that reflect the commands of Christ for intimacy with Him and His followers. He "gets it" now and wants everyone else to join him!

Jim is also the author of SO-CALLED CHRISTIAN, and coauthor of the discipleme discipleship workbooks (and soon to be released app) based on the need for disciple leaders to develop connected relationships with disciples rather than simply teaching them lessons.

Jim, his wife Tanya, and their blended family of ten children (only seven still at home!) live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. They enjoy music, theater, beach trips, great food, entertaining friends and family, and most of all being together!

This book has been a game changer for me. But it is a good thing that I was reading it with my wife. Per the definition in the book The disconnected man is completely unaware of just how disconnected he is. That describes me to a T. Once the light goes on and you be become aware, that is when everything will begin to change. I highly recommend this book.

I bought 10 copies of this book, and carry 1 with me at all times. Seems I frequently run into someone who needs to read it. This book saved my marriage and, more importantly, my sanity. I've been married to a disconnected man for more than 25 years and thought there was something desperately wrong with me that I was so unloveable. The truths in this book set me free from all the lies I believed about myself. I learned that our dysfunctional relationship was not all my fault, and I learned how to love better - fewer expectations from a man who is/was unable to meet any of my relational needs This powerful little book changed my husband forever. It's taken incredible courage for him to truly see himself and allow himself to connect with people in very scary ways. Thank you, Jim Turner!
