September 6, 2013

14981152Do you wonder why your marriage isn’t what you thought it would be?  Are you single and cannot seem to find the “right one”?  Are you in a relationship that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere or has you confused?  How about, you are sure this must be true love and want to take it to the “next step”.

If you fit into any of these scenarios, then this is the book for you.  Even if you do not fit into these situations, and maybe just beginning to date, you STILL should read this book!

In ‘The Sacred Search’, Gary Thomas touches upon what each individual needs to be observing and aware of in the dating process and with each’s relationship with the opposite sex.  Each individual needs to be aware of their own thoughts and attitudes and not only of those of the other companion involved.

I doesn’t matter which religious affiliation you have, nor does it matter if you really do not have one, this is still a book each needs to read and study.  All of us wants happiness in a relationship.  Within these pages are step-by-step direction in finding that fulfilling, long-term commitment.  At the end of each chapter are discussion questions to consider.

Gary discusses the difference between true love and infatuation, between healthy relationships and unhealthy ones along with the attitudes that accompany them.  He discusses the reality of “Sole or Soul” mates.  Gary points out how some of us get caught I certain scenarios which leads us to continue in unhealthy relationships with those with the same types of behaviors as in former relationships.

I believe the points he makes in this book is the key to a truly happy, healthy, long-lasting marriage.  Don’t we all seek happiness?  Many of us just do not know how or where to find it.  We often become dependent on others to make us happy.

This is a much needed, inspired book.  These are directives and principles that can lead others to avoid the pain, rejection and devastation bad relationships can cause.

I review this book giving it a strong Four Stars rating.  Although it is an excellent source, it does get quite repetitive at times.

This book was generously went for an honest book review of which I have given.
