Publisher's Summary

You may not feel like reconciling. You may not see hope for a reunion. But the biblical ideal for a separated couple is reconciliation. So how do you do it? When doors slam and angry words fly, when things just aren't working out, and even when your spouse is interested in someone else, there is hope. The Word of God is active and powerful. It offers the salve needed to heal lives, and that salve can heal marriages, too. Hope for the Separated will show you that by following the proven advice of God's Word you can achieve reconciliation with your mate.

Hope, indeed!

I stumbled across this book within days of separating from my husband of 16 years. (It had to be a God-thing as I was actually looking for a novel that might take my mind off my troubles.) Despite the desperate circumstances that brought about the marital separation, I wanted reconciliation, not an end to the marriage. Still, I knew rough waters were before us. What a blessing this book has been! It is practical, wise, down to earth, and founded on solid biblical principals. I recommended it to my husband, and he agreed to listen to it. We have now decided to purchase bound copies of the book as well to aid us as we work toward not just living together again but toward making our marriage all that it should be. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to restore a broken marriage.

Hope in God

I pray that this book and help start the Reconciliation to my wife and I.
I hurts so much and I'm scared to loose the one that I love so much. So, thank you for Gary for getting me started in the right path to victory in Jesus.

Spiritual approach to separation

Very practical guide for how to reconcile after separation as well as how to deal with not reconciling. Fair representation of each partners responsibility. Strong Christian perspective, but useful for any persons.

The positive points are clearly stated

Clearly a worthwhile commitment to devote the time to read/listen too if you are searching for some supportive and constructive methods for understanding separation. While I am not married, this information was very relative to long term relationships with a significant other that is currently in separation or ending state.

Comprehensive

This covered helpful information beyond the scope of separated couples and is comprehensive by addressing various relational situations. Having watched the movie Fireproof and gone through the Love Dare repeatedly, the information in this book also served as confirmation for the Love Dare and included other helpful relevant topics.

Great

Going through a divorce, this has helped me regain hope. The best had to be the last couple chapters. God allows them to choose and if the other is a Christian He will press them.

Not Bad

A lot of decent advice mixed in with a lot of incorrectly applied Biblical passages.
