Power of Commitment by Scott Stanley

Book Description

What is commitment and what's so scary about it? How can we better understand and appreciate the value of commitment and make it last - for a lifetime? In his new book, Scott Stanley, best-selling marriage expert, reveals that the secret ingredient for finding lasting love is understanding commitment. Too often, men and women find themselves in half-committed, Maybe I Do, relationships that lead to frustration, sadness, and, in many cases, divorce. But it doesn't have to be this way.Scott Stanley offers a five-step plan - based on his groundbreaking marital research and uniquely spiritual approach - for understanding commitment, including learning to handle the pressures of everyday life, moving through the pain of unfulfilled dreams and hopes, overcoming attraction to others that might endanger a marriage, transforming your thinking from 'me versus you' to 'we' and 'us,' and capturing the beauty and mystery of lifelong devotion, loyalty, teamwork, and building a lasting vision for the future.'Nobody is more qualified to write this book than Dr. Scott Stanley' - Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, Seattle Pacific University; authors, "Love Talk". 'This book should be mandatory reading for dating, engaged, newlywed, and not-so-newlywed couples. Bravo!' - Michele Weiner-Davis, author, "Divorce Busting and The Divorce Remedy".
