Covers it All Jun 27, 2007
As we get older it seems that our time becomes even more precious. With every resource being depleted emotionally and physically during the divorce process time and attention is one of our most precious assets. There is no end to the books or the time we could spend reading on the subject of divorce. Make your time count by using this book as a support. I now personally recommend this to anyone in such a horrible situation. I will not re write the other great comments on this book but will simply say "it's worth every penny" as well as every moment spent with it. Good investment!

I bought this because my son is going through a divorce and I wanted something to help me so I could help him..... I STRONGLY recommend this book to anyone going through or has someone going through a divorce...
A book that will make a difference in your life! Dec 28, 2000
It has been exactly a year since my wife had an affair with her girlfriend's husband, filed for divorce, and hired my city's most notorious Family Law attorney to attack me. There are now five attorneys involved (2 custody, 2 financial, & a discovery referee) and four accountants.
If you are going through a divorce, or contemplating one, I must tell you, this last year has been the most difficult in my life. I have a strong faith in GOD, I am the father of two wonderful children, and I am the CEO of a large holding company.
I have always read 50 books a year. And this year is no exception. Only this year, 25 were on divorce ranging from "When a mate wants out" to "Moving on when your mate moves out". However, by far the best book I read was Joseph Warren Kniskern's book, "When the Vow Breaks".
I am the leader of a large organization and I teach as well. One of the greatest compliments I can get, is for someone to say, often many years later, "You made a difference in my life".
This is exactly the compliment of a lifetime that I want to give to Warren. His book made a difference in my life and it will in yours as well.
The best of the Christian-oriented divorce books! Nov 11, 2000
Of the Christian-oriented books on divorce recovery that I've read, this is the best. Though it comes from a somewhat more fundamentalist perspective than I usually subscribe to, it avoids being preachy, and is accessible in tone, even for people who don't come from a fundamentalist background. I highly recommend this one for people dealing with an unwanted divorce - I'm keeping it around to share with others who are going through what I've been through!
Wonderful, understanding resource for Christians! Feb 14, 2000
Mr. Kniskern addresses many issues in this book for those facing a seemingly impossible situation. It is so painful to find yourself facing divorce when you really believed in "till death do you part". Whether your spouse is wanting out of the marriage, or circumstances have occurred that make it impossible to stay, this book is a Godsend! He discusses the Biblical views on marriage, when divorce is acceptable for Christians, why we should first consider reconciliation (for me, a very important topic), emotional and spiritual healing, as well as legal issues. In my case, I did have scriptural grounds for a divorce, but God used this book to encourage me to try again with my husband. We are currently working on reconciliation, and God has worked many miracles in our relationship and lives. A definite "must read" for anyone who thought their marriage would last forever, only to have the rug pulled out from under them. I have recommended this book to several friends, and would encourage pastors and counselors to check it out as well.
