Publishers Description Anyone who is contemplating divorce should read Merrick's book to discover how Almighty God has the power to restore their marriage when they trust and obey Him. Evangelist Mike Gendron, Director of Proclaiming the Gospel Ministry. Robert A. Merrick (Bob) is the average-man, guy-next-door, who fell in love, married, raised three children with his wife, built a 23 year career as a Civil Engineer, mowed the lawn, fixed the plumbing, helped his neighbors, and balanced financial challenges. Then one day, his wife packed-up and moved out, and a whole new set of realities fell in on him. Bob was faced with a choice: wallow in self-pity and blame, give up and get a divorce-or-seek God's answer. Over the last 5 years, Bob has made the second choice-daily. ALL of his life experiences-from marriage and professional career, to founding a Christian high school and teaching, to coaching youth sports and leading Church fellowship groups-seemed to have little relevance in the midst of this crisis. Over these recent years, Bob walked closer with God-learned more about the meaning of, ."all things work together for good to those who love God." (Romans 8:28)-and spent hundreds of late-night hours writing out the Biblical insights he has discovered. Why Stand? is a testament of our Lord and Savior's no-matter-what love for us. It is a book that gives hope in times of painful circumstances and encouragement to stand for what is right, what is good, what is God. Bob is currently seeking his Masters Degree in Christian Counseling at Colorado Theological Seminary. His heart is to follow God and to lead others to the freedom and victory found through faith in Jesus Christ. www.2of12ministries.com

Hope-filled pages Aug 20, 2008
COURAGEOUS is the first word that flooded my spirit as I finished reading this book. The world bleeds for lack of LOVE, and yet here in the pages of this book is the demonstration of the purest kind of love--God's Love--God's unconditional, unadulterated, unending, unstoppable LOVE. We all face love-tragedies in our lives, circumstances that bruise and damage relationships and may even bring them to an end. And yet, there is something in the human spirit (which might be identified as our God-core) that still holds out heart and hand in search of real Love.
This author has made his choice to STAND and BELIEVE that God's Love can and will restore his marriage. He presents his facts and beliefs in an easy-to-read, personal style, and he minces no words in revealing the battle we are in with enemy/evil forces that set mine-fields in our paths. "The Good Lord gave us an owner's manual (The Holy Scriptures) to save us from misery and discomfort," he writes. "We just forget to reference it as much as we should."
Yes, Merrick offers Scripture quotes within the book. A few may sting for a moment, yet they also help us see the powerful foundation that can support us IF we make that decision. No human being has experienced perfect life-relationships. However, if you hold even an inkling of hope that your current relationship and/or future ones will survive and flourish, I highly recommend reading this book and keeping it on your resource shelf. It might even be a good idea to give a copy to others in your relationship-realm. Every discovery of the unlimited levels of God's Love is worth the effort.
