This is an excellent book for anyone. We have taught it in Sunday School as a follow up to DivorceCare for those going through separation or divorce. It is useful for any situation. We will be teaching another class for our Singles as well as Single parents because we know it will be beneficial for them. It is laid out in 13 chapters with follow up questions so it can be used in a group setting as well as for an individual.
This is an excellent book for anyone, because sooner or later we all find ourselves on a road that we never wanted to travel. It is a good solid overview of how to deal with the long term difficulties of life. Written at a very understandable entry level, it is well organized and covers most of the questions that Christians, particularly new Christians have to the problem of dealing with long term hurt.
After reading this book, I knew immediately it was a book that I must pass on. Every day the Lord brings into my life hurting people, from a mother and father who were loving Christian parents, but their child is now in prison; to devoted wives who have their husbands leave after decades of marriage; and other numerous heartaches. I have given this book to at least a dozen people and everyone of them tells me how much this book ministered to them. Praise God for Mark Atteberry!
