Publisher's Summary

"The Catholic church saved my marriage and, quite possibly, my life."

So begins David Anders in this remarkably forthright book. In it, David reports that by the early 2000s, his marriage was so painful that he and his wife had just one thing in common: contempt for each other.

Today, he and his wife are extremely happy together not because of marriage therapy, but because they came to know and fully embraced the Catholic church's teachings on marriage.

Many people who encounter the church's teachings are shocked by their rigor. Yet, the church offers much more than rules about sexual restraint; she offers a way to make marriage into something supernatural, even mystical.

Here, Dr. Anders shares his personal discovery and offers a robust defense of the church's teaching on marriage even the most controversial topics of divorce, remarriage, gay marriage, and contraception.

With the church's teachings and the writings of the saints as his guide, he also offers practical, time-tested ways to live in peace despite an unhappy marriage, the value of suffering, and ways to overcome reluctance to forgive grave offenses.

In a culture that breaks apart marriages and undermines human dignity, Dr. David Anders offers a hope-filled alternative for those who live moral and spiritual lives in union with Christ and His Church.

I got way more than I paid for.

I am so happy I bought this book. I can't wait to share it! This a great story about a faith journey toward truth but there is also so much history and doctrine that is explained so you can follow not only the emotional and spiritual but intellectual journey. I got way more than I paid for. And love it. I learned so much and will re-listen over and over.

Strengthens Catholic Faith

This book is so much more than a help for your marriage. It’s a walk-through Dr. Anders conversion story, a detailed description of many aspects of the Catholic faith, and a descriptive telling of how the Catholic faith enhanced his and Jill’s marriage. Highly recommend.

Very real and eye opener

This book has made me realize how far away I am from being a good catholic, but at the same time it has given me the desire to keep trying , if not in my marriage, in my individual life.

Straight-up honest, humble, and real!

I had no idea what I was missing! David and Jill Anders' transformation is nothing short of stunning!!
If you are struggling at all in your marriage or if you just want to know more about Catholic Christian marriage, read this book! Don't give up on your marriage--hold on for dear life, as Dr Anders says. My take away: I have a lot of work to do, but the payoff is miraculous!

This book can save more than your marriage

There are many excellent apologists for the Christian faith today, but Dr Anders is in that upper tier. For those of us who have benefited from his thoughtful and brilliant answers to questions given on his radio show “Called to Communion“, this gives us a peek at his personal side and how the beautiful teachings of the Catholic Church guided him through a difficult time in his life. His wonderful gift of articulating the Christian faith combines with his humility to make a terrific read. God bless you Dr Anders - you have been a great encouragement to me as I continue my journey to the Church - a journey with many parallels to yours.
