Item description for Bonding: Relationships in the Image of God by Donald Marvin Joy...
Overview According to the book of Genesis, God made human beings in his own image. So he made us to desire relationships with others, just as he does. "When we can bless the yearning for intimacy and its abhorrence of isolation and loneliness, we have made a breakthrough in our search for identity," Dr. Joy writes. "We are 'image bearers' of the God who resides in Holy Trinity" (p. 15). This remarkable study brings the truth of the Bible in contact with the insights of modern psychology. The result is a challenging and hopeful book that will give people the courage to reach out and find new friends.
Publishers Description A Christian counselor explains why we year*** for meaningful relationships and how we can find them. Dr. Joy is a frequent guest of "Focus on the Family" and other Christian broadcasts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bonding: Relationships in the Image of God?
"BONDING" IS A MUST READ FOR ALL COUPLES Mar 24, 2000
I would recommend Dr. Joy's book for all couples, at any time in their lives. As a former student of Donald Joy at Asbury Seminary, I can affirm that he speaks from his heart, and that what he says is Biblically sound. As a pastor, whenever I agree to perform a wedding, Dr. Joy's "Bonding," along with "Rebonding," and "Lovers: Whatever Happened to Eden." is required reading for the couple. Get it, read it, recommend it to others.
Wish I'd read this earlier in life. Feb 27, 2000
This book is wonderful in explaining bonding patterns of the human being. I'm glad that I have read this book before I started a family, but I wish I had read this in my teens. It would have saved me a lot of heartache. This is a must read for anyone who wants their approach to relationship to match that of Jesus'.
A one of a kind appproach to spirituality and sexuality Oct 20, 1998
Bonding is a principled, compassionate and demanding approach to integrating Christian spirituality and sexuality. This book can truly change your life!!
