The Misja brothers despise pretense. So . . . if you are looking for a fairy-tale book about a fairy-tale marriage, please avoid "Thriving Despite a Difficult Marriage." But . . . if you long to have a good heart even if you are experiencing a bad marriage . . . then "Thriving" is for you.
Satan, the Thief, comes to steal and destroy--he comes to rob the heart of hope. The Misja's understand that Jesus came to offer the heart the hope of abundant living in an abusive world. In reality, "Thriving Despite a Difficult Marriage" is a book about a well-lived life in spite of an unfulfilling marriage. It is about moving beyond suffering and mere surviving to finding joy and supernatural thriving.
While this all may sound "deep," in the hands of master soul physicians like Misja and Misja, the hidden chambers of the heart come alive with wisdom for living. Their practical theology of desire, their explanation of the battlefield of the soul, and their relational process for moving from hoping in your marriage to hoping in God, are each worth the proverbial price of the book.
Through a process of moving from awareness, to brokenness, to repentance, to forgiveness, to disengagement, to re-engagement, the authors walk readers on a journey whose final destination is God, the ultimate Soul Physician, performing open heart surgery, regardless of the state of one's marriage.
"Thriving Despite a Difficult Marriage" is a hard book about a difficult topic. It is an honest book about real change from the inside out. It is the book for any spouse who wants to love well, hope endlessly, and rejoice deeply . . . despite external circumstances and relational disappointments.
