Helpful and Still Relevant Today Mar 27, 2007
This is an older book but I enjoyed reading it. The author shows that he clearly understands what we face during and after divorce. There is a lot of help here for anyone who is early in the process. I am glad to recommend this book to any reader! I would also recommend a new book that is hugely helpful, it's my "top pick" in the divorce category. It is called Moving Forward After Divorce: Practical Steps to * Healing Your Hurts * Finding Fresh Perspective * Managing Your New Life by Dr. David and Lisa Frisbie, family counselors and authors who specialize in divorce.

Sorting Out Your Feelings Jan 1, 2007
This book is helpful after divorce --- readers can work through their feelings and identify which emotions they may want to change. Written with an obvious understanding of how it feels when a marriage ends. The writer is to be highly commended for showing such compassion and care in discussing the issues that most divorced persons experience. This book is a helpful addition to the literature of divorce.

God's Vehicle To Recovery Sep 8, 2006
Aloha. I have been using this book for over ten years as a tool in helping people to recover from their brokenness and draw closer to the God. The Lord uses the class, of which I teach using this text "Growing Through Divorce", as a vehicle to draw people to Him. To let them understand how God is more interested in their relationship with Him, then He is about their brokenness. Not that He doesn't care about their despair; through their adversities He brings them closer to Him. Going through the book, praying, reading scriptures and having open and honest communication with the group has helped hundreds of people. They have become stronger in their walk with the Lord Jesus Christ, and a high percentage of them are actively involved in some kind of ministry. Some become leaders within the group and are co-leaders, and attend leadershp classes along with me. The results have been tremendous. People are healthier, happier, stronger-mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually and financially. Yes, people have and continue to "Grow Through Divorce". This book is a "must" for you who are serious about recovering from the devastation of a broken relationship. God Bless You.
Growing Through Divorce is great conversation starter Jan 15, 2006
Our HOPE...a ministry for divorced women at church is using "Growing Through Divorce" as a conversation starter for our small group and it is working. The topical chapters are designed to encourage us to start talking in a positive, forward moving direction. The "working guide" at the back of the book offers encouraging Christian reflections that are healing for those of us who are/have experienced the painful divorce process.
an adequate book Nov 3, 2002
I found this book useful, but most of the value could be condensed to a shorter text. One thing readers should understand (not evident from the book jacket or the excerpts) is that this book has a very strong emphasis on the Christian faith as it relates to one's experience of divorce. If you look at the other posted reviews, you will see that the greatest value was derived from people who shared this cultural background. As someone of another faith, I found that I skipped over at least 50% of the text because it did not apply to me.
