Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Michael McManus's popular Marriage Savers is filled with concrete, biblical advice for those serious about saving marriage. New material in this revised, expanded edition includes: - Three ways churches can help the separated to reconcile - Three strategies to help the divorced heal their wounds - A proven way to reduce the divorce rate in stepfamilies - Evidence that "the greatest untapped resource to save marriages" is a couple with a strong marriage willing to mentor others - The means to jump-start a dozen "marriage saver" reforms in many churches in a metro area at one time Marriage Savers is the definitive book on how to build a lifelong marriage. Any church adopting a single reform pioneered by one church could push its own divorce rate below 10 percent. Learn about a premarital inventory that can predict with 86 percent accuracy which engaged couples are most likely to have a marriage that will end in divorce. Read about Marriage Encounter, which prompts nearly nine out of ten married couples to fall back in love.

Format: Paperback
This book compiles factual information on what prevents marital success and how to avoid the pitfalls. It really "tells it like it is" including how churches are part of the problem. The good new is, it also provide answers and many valuable resouces. This book is a must for parents, pastors, churches, and counselors, who want to help people enbark on the journey of marriage and not just plan a wedding. It takes a womb to tomb approach of marriage preparation as a life long process. It is the definitive handbook for churches and communities that want to turn the divorce rate around. God has given Mike Mc Manus a mission that will benefit all people, saving marriages before they begin.

Format: Paperback
Apparently the government funds that could have been wasted on unnecessary projects like arming Humvees or properly funding No Child Left Behind were instead better spent paying for favorable coverage of administration policies by conscientious pundits like Mr. McManus, who, by the way, failed to disclose this to either his readers or his publishers.

Who else is pushing opinions in the media that are paid for with your tax dollars? The list continues to grow...
