Description : Statistics show that one in every four marriages is impacted by infidelity. If you haven’t experienced the searing pain of unfaithfulness, odds are you know someone who has. The affects of infidelity are devastating and have destroyed many families, but adultery doesn’t have to be an automatic death sentence for your marriage. You can trust again. You can restore intimacy. You can have a relationship that you will both cherish for a lifetime. Fifteen years ago, Gary and Mona Shriver experienced the devastation caused by adultery. Unfaithful is the true story of how God restored their marriage. Raw and transparently honest, the Shriver’s story alone is an inspiration, offering hope and practical strategies for healing. In this revised version, the authors add new information on the healing process, how to begin, and a new section on emotional affairs that shares real life stories of betrayal and complete healing. This revised version also offers a recovery timeline from a couples’ perspective, a helpful addition for couples wondering what the healing process will look like, and new discussion questions to facilitate healing.
As co-founders of Hope & Healing Ministries, a Christian peer support ministry for couples in adultery recovery, the Shriver’s have seen countless broken marriages restored and transformed into intimate relationships built on love, respect, and trust. Unfaithful is a lifeline for couples with no hope in sight. Endorsed by H. Norman Wright, Mitch Temple of Focus on the Family, Dave Carder, and many other well known marriage experts, it is a useful resource for ministers, counselors, as well as friends and family of couples struggling to recover after a spouse has strayed.

Adultery is one of the last "secret sins" we, the church, don't discuss. While statistics vary, most show that 25% to 50% of marriages experience adultery and that the Christian church's divorce rate is upwards of 50%. Additionally, adultery is one of two commonly accepted reasons for divorce in the church.
Bottom Line: Adultery is a problem within the church.
Therapists agree that adultery is one of the most difficult relationship problems to overcome, Yet what does the church have to offer those who experience adultery and desire to reconcile? Not much.

"This pilot project holds huge hope for couples in adultery recovery. It is a faith based curriculum that couples will find extremely supportive. Hope & Healing support groups build on biblical principles and make the scriptures more available for application during this devastating crisis. I recommend this resource for both those in adultery recovery and those working with couples in adultery recovery.
