Publisher's Description

When does true love give in? When does true love push back? Break Through shows you how to love and how to set effective limits so that everybody wins.

Most of our relationships may be healthy and satisfying, but we often have one or two important people who change the rules and drive us crazy—a deadbeat dad, an alcoholic spouse, a wayward child, a demanding boss, a lazy roommate. Leading Christian counselor Tim Clinton and noted author Pat Springle, help you:

• Identify why you gravitate toward unhealthy relationships

• Redefine love, trust—and your responsibility to the people you care about

• Learn which choices and behaviors cause relationship troubles

• Experience the freedom of forgiveness

Learn to say yes when you want to and no when you need to. Give up your need to please, rescue, fix, or control anyone else. Study questions, checklists, and inspirational stories help you find the moment when you break through to the loving, healthy relationships with the people who matter most!

    I was completely impressed with this Biblically-based book about healthy relationships. And I don't mean just marital relationships, but all relationships. The authors give you practical tips on how to transform your relationships(and predominantly you)into what God wants them (and you) to be.

    The thing that impressed me more than anything was that the Bible was continually consulted as the primary source. So often in Christian counseling, there is too much emphasis on secular self-help strategies. The authors continued to bring us back to what Jesus did on this earth and what the apostle Paul wrote in his epistles. They do bring in other sources by various Christian theologians and even non-Christians, but everything is measured against the world.

    I did see some of myself and others in my sphere of influence. I plan to go back and do a rereading of various sections so I can apply many of their principles. In the end, it is good to know that in my experience, I am not alone. There are others who feel my pain and have walked in similar circumstances. And it is possible to change with the help of God.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who has ever had difficulties in a relationship. Isn't that everyone?

    I was sent of a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated in any way, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    helpful, godly information but not as well organized as could be. should be read by younger persons not too far along in truly difficult relationships. hard to change things after forty plus years...results could be... catastrophic.

    But insightful and empowering, if applied early.

    The reasons we are the way we are is brought out in ways that brings the a-ha response. Understanding brings out the desire to move beyond our present situation and leave behind this turmoil that ensnares us. The book then takes us through steps to do exactly that, with guidelines and suggestions that make our journey successful.

    I am always leary of books like these because sometimes they go so far away from scripture and give too many of their own opinions of the Scriptures that it sometimes goes too far from the Truth of the scriptures...But when they are spot on using scriptures and keep them into context they are a blessing...such as this book...

    In Chapter one this book starts out with "What the world calls "love" often isn't true love at all"

    If our version of love is destroying us or someone we care about, then let's not call it love. It that's you, if you or someone you know has been mistaking counterfeit love for real love for the real thing, then you need a breakthrough, a flash of insight and a dose of courage to take action and change the status quo. And that's what this book will give you. Change doesn't happen quickly or easily, step by step you can learn~and live~authentic love, wise trust, genuine forgiveness, and real freedom.

    We are all in some strained relationships, strained can drive us crazy, yet we seem to be helpless to exercise true love, move toward a more healthy relationship/ After these statement's they share several different ways how people deal with others thinking they are doing it because they love them...

    I am ashamed to say I have been guilty of some of the very same examples. Then there are those who claim and believe they are Christians and misuse the Scripture's from Gods Word in a very very wrong way_.this to me is very sad indeed.

    Each chapter deals with the wrong way we deal with relationships and the right way we should deal with relationships. Then there are questions to help you understand and see what you think true love relationships, not only in marriages but with family, friends, co-workers etc.

    In Chapter 4 there is a self-test to help you see what's going on in your life_.which I found very interesting and helpful.

    In my opinion (and we all have one, just like a belly button) I found this book very helpful. You cannot just pick it up and start reading; it must be read slowly and with a Bible and with prayer.

    Tim and Pat make very good and easy ways to see how we are in parts of our lives and how to change our ways for Gods Glory. May HE continue to use them in that very purpose, HIS Glory.

    "Break Through" is no breakthrough ...

    When a big name in Christian counseling circles writes a book, even with a co-author, you naturally expect an excellent read. That was not my experience with "Break Through: When to Give In, How to Push Back" by Tim Clinton and Pat Springle (published by Worthy Publishing).

    First, let me say much of the content of the book is solid. I simply found the writing of it somewhat confusing.

    My initial expectations regarding the content was garnered from the title on the cover of the book. But once I opened the cover and started reading, I was not able to definitively zero in on what this book is primarily about. The content seemed to be a mishmash of subjects from enmeshment (what I think is supposed to be the core topic) to boundaries, trust, parenting, forgiveness, and other topics, some of which seemed to be repetitious.

    I think the problem with "Break Through" was a lack of concise communication, starting with clearly identifying a focal point for the book, and then continuing with a concise unfolding of the issues pertaining to that focal point. The content is more an ongoing rambling, switching from one topic to another, and then back again without clearly connecting everything to easily identifiable focal points.

    Because of the odd way the book is written, it is not a standout regarding the topics it does cover. There are multiple other books that more concisely, more clearly, and more simply convey as good of content as you will find in this book.

    For these reasons, I have to say "Break Through" is no breakthrough. Even with that said, I have no doubt there are many who would find themselves blessed with some of the content if they're willing to work through the muddle of the message.

    I received this book free from Handlebar Marketing. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
