2.0 out of 5 stars Retitled But Same Stuff, May 7, 2007
This review is from: Peacemaking for Families (Focus on the Family) (Paperback)
I was very disappointed in this book. The first half of the book was almost a verbatim reproduction of The Peacemaker. The second half of the book is a repeat of the initial repeat in the first half of the book but directed at dealing with children. There is no new information simply a change in wording that says the samething Ken Sande said in the Peacemaker and also in the first half of this book. The only hope for this book were the last two chapters that dealt with when your marriage gets in trouble and steps to protect your marriage. Both chapters were very vague and not very helpful. The author did say it was not his purpose to deal with marriage. However, my question is if that was not his intention why did he include a whole chapter on it? My recommendation is buy The Peacemaker and you do not need to waste your money on this book. It promises much and delivers very little.

Paul,
Your point regarding no new information is insightful, but maybe that was the point. Rather than focus on how the two books are similiar might it be more appropriate to rate them on how they stand on their own?
