Healthy relationships start with "More Than Me"
If I were a marriage counsellor,I would make "More Than Me: The 4 Essentials of Relational Wholeness" mandatory reading for all couples that walked through my office door.Actually,the good thing about this book is that your marriage doesn’t have to be in trouble for you to benefit from it."More Than Me" is ideal for any couple that desires to have a strong and healthy partnership that can withstand the unavoidable trials we all face.
"More Than Me" is filled with biblical references which might be a turn off for some and thats understandable but do yourself a favor and read it anyway.The book is so deep to where you’ll find yourself compelled to read it not just once but twice and maybe even thrice.I love how the book tackles topics like forgiveness,love and tolerance without being self-righteous and preachy.
The path to a healthy relationship definitely starts with "More Than Me".

Great for a struggling couple.
More Than Me was a step by step, almost scientific, guide to how to practice the four principles that lead to relational wholeness. For the person who is in a last grab situation and will try anything to repair a broken relationship, or for the person who is clueless as to how to be a good friend, this book has much potential. I appreciate that it reminds us to live holy, relational lives above anything else. To me, however, relationships are mysterious, artful, morphing, alive, and encompass so much more than can be expressed in the boundaries of four principles. Of course these principles will push one toward healthier relationships, but I hate to see it boxed in to just four. Along the same lines, to say that God always and only works within the parameters of these four principles is limiting as well. I would have liked to see more than a couple of pages of positive descriptions of healthy relationships to motivate me to live out the authors' message, rather than so much of what I already know: relationships are difficult and it is easy to ruin them. It is the people that do it well who inspire me.

More Than Me
Even healthy relationships need divine resources. Life is about relationships, but we increasingly see them broken and suffering. They are the source of our greatest joys but also our deepest sorrows. Much of our pain in life comes from difficult or broken connections with other people. Authors Jim Peterson, Glenn McMahan, and David Russ explain how relationships can become whole with four divinely appointed principles: love, integrity, humility, and forgiveness.
These four factors are essential to the most intimate and the most public relationships, yet we can't achieve them on our own. The authors explain how we can be empowered by God to practice these four compelling keys to relational wholeness.
If you are interested in this kind of material check out the More than Me weblog below that Glen McMahan writes based on the book. I think you will find it intriguing. In all my relationships be they with family, friends, people I minister and coach, and even ‘enemies’, this book has been a guide to navigate me through some challenging relational waters.
And if you like the weblog you might even enjoy the book by the same title.
Blessings on you all!!!

I wish I’d read it 50 year ago!
This is not the first Petersen book I have read and studied but it’s the best! I breezed through the 220 pages and then returned to answer the challenge question at the end of each chapter and then read it again. This time memorizing the key essentials to relational wholeness: integrity, love, humility and forgiveness.
The Scriptural soundness, personal illustrations and well crafted writing are informative, entertaining and affirming. So far I have sent copies to all 5 of my children and several grandchildren. I’ve sent out an additional 35 copies to extended family and friends and will send out more particularly to couples about to get married.
I wish my wife and I had this book to read 50 years ago! More Than Me will get premier shelf space after I read it again!
