Editorial Reviews

Review

Lou Priolo brings over two decades of counseling experience, a deep knowledge of Scripture, and a love for God s people to his writing. You ll find these little booklets very helpful, whether for yourself or to give to a friend. I heartily recommend them.
—Elyse Fitzpatrick, author of Idols of the Heart and Afternoon of Life


Lou Priolo s direct but fair counsel contained within these pages is much needed for so many professing believers today. Biblical, practical, straightforward and timely are the main points of impact that these brief booklets will have on those who read them. If you re looking for a relevant word for your difficult path, read hopefully and receive much needed direction. After you ve read, by placing these booklets into the hands of a hurting friend, you may also be giving that person just the thing he or she desperately needs in order to receive a ready word for a difficult situation.
—Lance Quinn, President, National Association of Nouthetic Counselors

This booklet provided me the intellectual tools to combat my feelings after my wife filed for divorce. I was able to use many of the ideas from this booklet as a framework for working through that difficult time in our marriage. While I can't say this booklet alone prevented the end of our marriage, it provided the resources necessary for me to continue to fight for joy.

This was the most encouraging idea to me:
"God may want to glorify Himself by restoring your marriage to a place that exceeds all your expectations so that His power will be made perfect in your weakness."
This is exactly what happened in my case, and although it was nearly impossible to see the chain of events that would cause this to happen, this idea allowed me to consider God's glory in whether to fight the divorce or not. I could have let her leave, but I believe God's glory has been on display more through His grace to our marriage by restoring it than it would have been in His grace by allowing it to end.

The criticism about the lack of provision for abuse in this booklet is warranted. I would say victims of real abuse are not the target audience.

The criticism about the author's lack of understanding of pain of suffering inside marriage are not warranted in my opinion. In my case, I had what many considered solid Biblical grounds for divorce based on the provision in Matt 5:32, and the emotional pain from those months is still with me years later. However, at no time during my many readings of the booklet did I believe I was outside the scope because I wasn't the "guilty party". I still had a choice to sign the divorce papers or continue trusting God for reconciliation, regardless of how improbable. This booklet helped my heart from hardening despite the pain.

Format: Paperback
Before you pass this book along to a friend, as the other reviewers of this product did, please be sure that your friend is not a victim of domestic abuse. This book will lay tremendous guilt on someone who may be trying to protect their children from a mentally disturbed and dangerous person. See an accurate review of this book at Jeff Crippen's A Cry for Justice website,and type Lou Priolo in the search. This book needs a disclamer, in which the author acknowledges that abuse is an evil in even 'Christian' marriages, and that the book's contents are not applicable in those cases. This book could easliy become a tool in the hands of a wicked abusive person to futher harm his victims.

I ordered this for 2 of my friends who are contemplating divorce. I reviewed it myself before sending it to them, and it was exactly the book I was looking for. The title says it all - I want my friends to really evaluate their actions before anything permanent is done. Lou does not sugarcoat divorce, or coddle the reader in any way. He backs up everything he says with good scripture. The book is an easy read, my only complaint is that it's not longer.
