Product Description

While many people desperately want to find lasting love, they often fear commitment and hedge their bets with Maybe I Do or half-committed relationships. These relationships often lead to cohabitation, which according to the latest controversial research by relationship expert, Scott Stanley, is a proven indicator for increased chances of a failed marriage down the road. In this valuable new book, Stanley reveals that the secret ingredient in all successful relationships is understanding commitment. He defines commitment as not simply staying together but being together, not feeling constraint or loss, but rather appreciation for the opportunity to experience the unexpected joy and passion of long-term partnership. Stanley presents a five-step program for understanding commitment and uses quotes from the Bible for wisdom and inspiration.

Publisher's Description

The Power of Commitment

What is commitment and what's so scary about it? How can we better understand and appreciate the value of commitment and make it last--for a lifetime?

In his new book, Scott Stanley, best-selling marriage expert, reveals that the secret ingredient for finding lasting love is understanding commitment. Too often, men and women find themselves in half-committed, Maybe I Do, relationships that lead to frustration, sadness, and, in many cases, divorce. But it doesn't have to be this way. Scott Stanley offers a five-step plan--based on his groundbreaking marital research and uniquely spiritual approach--for understanding commitment, including learning to handle the pressures of everyday life, moving through the pain of unfulfilled dreams and hopes, overcoming attraction to others that might endanger a marriage, transforming your thinking from "me versus you" to "we" and "us," and capturing the beauty and mystery of lifelong devotion, loyalty, teamwork, and building a lasting vision for the future.

"Nobody is more qualified to write this book than Dr. Scott Stanley."
--Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, Seattle Pacific University; authors, Love Talk

"This book should be mandatory reading for dating, engaged, newlywed, and not-so-newlywed couples. Bravo!"
--Michele Weiner-Davis, author, Divorce Busting and The Divorce Remedy
