Item description for Torn Asunder Workbook: Recovering From an Extramarital Affair by Dave M. Carder...
Overview Infidelity is at crisis levels even within the church. No marriage is immune despite apparent moral convictions. Dave Carder wrote Torn Asunder to offer couples hope, healing, and encouragement in the face of adultery. He divides his book into first helping readers understand extramarital affairs and then offering healing for marriages dealing with this betrayal.
The workbook allows couples to work through and apply the material presented in Torn Asunder. It is organized into daily twenty-minute exercises initiated by each spouse on alternating days. Because this tragic situation is not easily resolved, it is imperative to get couples on the road to healing and oneness.
Based on the principles in the besstselling "Torn Asunder--"a book that has helped thousands of people survive infidelity--this revised and expanded workbook offers five crucial services for hurting couples:
Stabilizes the marriage in the initial crisis
Provides structure for the emotionally volatile environment
Brings closure to the "old" marriage-the marriage prior to the affair
Establishes skills necessary for the "new" marriage pattern
Answers the questions: How could you do this to me? Why did you do it?
The "Torn Asunder" workbook is built around daily twenty-minute homework exercises, initiated by each spouse on alternating days for ten to fifteen weeks. Working with your spouse might be the last thing you want to do right now, but it's essential to "your" long-term recovery, whether or not your marriage survives.
Healing won't be easy. But the "Torn Asunder" workbook provides hope, encouragement, and practical advice on the journey. Take the first step today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Torn Asunder Workbook: Recovering From an Extramarital Affair?
Great book Dec 7, 2007
I bought this book for my best girlfriend when she found out her husband was having an affair. She said it was wonderful and really helped her understand why her husband cheated, what "type" of affair it was, and how to tell if he is likely to do it again.
A Balanced Approach May 11, 2007
Goes beyond the simplistic notion of shallow forgiveness into the real work of repentance and reconciliation. Squares the responsibility between both spouses instead of placing an unfair burden on the spouse who has been betrayed to do all the work necessary for restoration of the relationship.
Not just facts Jan 11, 2007
I was ready for a dry book with too many facts and statistics, but this book has been great. I'm only on the first chapter and have learned so much already.
Torn Asunder Nov 3, 2006
This book and its accompaning workbook are simply the best resources I have found in helping folks recover from the devastating affects of marital infidelity, whether the couple chooses to remain married or divorce.
Great Book in a great time of need Aug 31, 2006
This is a great book for anyone experiencing this traumatic part of life as well as anyone who knows someone going through this. It gives you hope when you think everything is gone and helps you break down the who,how,why when and where and then helps pick up the pieces.
