Why Are So Many Relationships Failing? Spiritual Bruises is the title of a book written by local author, Billy Burnette.
In the book, Burnette offers spiritual insight to answer the question he poses in the title. The language that he uses to answer the questions is frank, hard-hitting and abrupt. Many people may be offended by his answers but the truth does offend sometimes.
In the book’s product description, Burnette writes, “Most all our relationships go something like this: Even though you can see something good in the other person, you only get glimpses of the good. It is like being in a jail cell next to each other; reaching through the bars to hold hands, maybe even steal a kiss, but you cannot embrace that good person. Some go so far as to have sex, but not really embrace, like most married couples are doing today.”
Burnette points out in the book that Jesus said to “Confess our sins to one another that we may be healed.” Burnette says that we usually try to bury our pain while Jesus’ way is to deal directly with it.
“Jesus did not come to tell us how to live with our pain,” Burnette writes. “He came to heal us of the pain.”
If you like blunt, direct writing, add this book to your collection.
The book is available at Amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle editions.
