Description

Product Description

The Disconnected Man tracks the journey of one man''s surprise discovery of his own disconnectedness and his desire to help other men, and the women who love them, before it is too late.

Disconnected men hide out in plain view: in our churches, in our families and in our communities. They are competent, capable men who quietly ''do their duty'' and attract little attention. They are fairly happy guys, relatively unemotional and capable of carrying heavy loads of responsibility, but are very difficult to get to know beyond superficial friendship. A closer examination inside their marriages reveals a desert strewn with emotionally emaciated spouses. While their competence may build the church, organize a group, or run a company, they haven''t the slightest notion how to connect intimately with those they love. Their wives suffer, usually in silence, while the church and culture press past this couple secretly falling apart.

Jim Turner was that disconnected man going about his life, happily fulfilling his duty within his own self-protective bubble, until God suddenly burst it in a most horrific way. His story starts when that devastation left him clinging precariously to the remaining shreds of his broken marriage. Jim longs to share with other disconnected men what he learned through that ordeal, to help them understand their disobedience and show how they can achieve real connection with those they love.

From the Author

I was a disconnected man tripping through life with a happy disposition while my relationship with my wife was quietly dying. Once I discovered the truth about myself; that I was disconnected, disobedient, and downright relationally dysfunctional, I repented and began the long road to satisfying, intimate connection. I''ve opened my heart to spill out the truths I learned from the pain of traveling that lonely road with the desire to help couples emotionally connect in ways they never felt possible. I expose all the excuses disconnected men offer to protect themselves, calling them to obey the relational commands in the Bible, while giving women the hope that the emotional intimacy they crave is indeed possible.

From the Inside Flap

"A real, raw, honest story... Jim Turner can help every man learn how to open up and love his woman. His intensely personal, practical, and biblical principles are going to save many marriages."

David Clarke, PhD, Christian psychologist and author of Married but Lonely

From the Back Cover

Jim Turner''s personal story is a sober reminder of the importance of truly walking in love and caring for one another in marriage. Too many wives can identify with being married to a disconnected man. Every one of them will benefit from reading this book.

I felt like I could finally look into God''s eyes and let Him love me. I wasn''t afraid of intimacy anymore. I was being healed. I am still being healed."                                                                                                                                                                                               Honest and passionate, THE DISCONNECTED MAN exposes the issue of disconnection and helps disconnected men and the women who love them begin to move forward in grace and connection.

About the Author

Jim Turner has been in youth or pastoral ministry for over twenty-five years and has personally experienced the pain and damage caused by disconnection. He is divorced as a direct result of his former disconnection, father of four incredible young adults, and now remarried and living in the delight of being truly connected with his wife. He has individually fought the battle to overcome disconnection and has entered into rich and fruitful relationships that reflect the commands of Christ for intimacy with Him and His followers. He "gets it" now and wants everyone else to join him!

Jim is also the author of SO-CALLED CHRISTIAN, and coauthor of the discipleme discipleship workbooks (and soon to be released app) based on the need for disciple leaders to develop connected relationships with disciples rather than simply teaching them lessons.

Jim, his wife Tanya, and their blended family of ten children (only seven still at home!) live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. They enjoy music, theater, beach trips, great food, entertaining friends and family, and most of all being together!

I''m not sure why I didn''t realize it, but this is a very Bible guided book. I am not Christian. Why does it have 4 out of 5 stars then? Because it was an honest look at his experience as a disconnected man. He honestly tried to not only provide insight to the spouse of the disconnected and their experience, but also share how the spouse feels having that emotional disconnect. I feel like it''s less of a way to fix it book and more of an attempt to cultivate empathy with both parties involved in such a relationship.

I felt like the author had a window into our marriage and was speaking exactly what my husband and I have been dealing with for the last 20 years. He pinpointed perfectly what I as a wife have been feeling and also what my husband has as well. Our marriage is far from healed, but after reading this book we have way more clarity on what exactly we are dealing with now.

There is some eye opening content in this book that I found helpful. That said, if you''re not Christian you''ll need to muscle though the heavy Christian content, God is mentioned every few pages and that''s throwing me. I wish it was more obvious that the book has such strong religious overtones, I''m not sure I would have got it. That said if you can get past that there''s some really good content here.
