Out of the Doghouse for Christian Men
Authors: Robert Weiss & Marnie C. Ferree
Christian men aren’t immune from the decimating plague of infidelity. Yet underneath the hurt and betrayal, often there is still love. Without proper guidance, though, men have little chance of restoring relationship trust. In fact, they often make things worse. Robert Weiss, a nationally acclaimed secular expert in the treatment of sex and intimacy issues, provided a practical, effective guide for recovery after infidelity in his original version of Out of the Doghouse. He then invited colleague Marnie C. Ferree, an equally acclaimed expert within the Christian community, to adapt the book for a faith-based audience. The result is a perfect marriage between Weiss’ concrete relationship-saving steps and Ferree’s incorporation of a Christian perspective. Ferree brings familiar faith values and scripture to deepen the discussion of taking responsibility, rebuilding trust, and restoring intimacy. Out of the Doghouse for Christian Men provides a path of redemption for the men who cheat and a possibility of healing for the women they hurt. Not only can relationships be saved, they can emerge from the doghouse stronger than ever.
