Dave Carter's Anatomy of an Affair: How affairs, attraction & addictions develop and how to guard you marriage against them is a revision of a much earlier book (Close Calls: What Adulterers Want You to Know About Protecting Your Marriage), but is filled with updated information and practical wisdom. Carter writes of the warning signs, triggers and close calls in our marriages. He highlights the tools necessary to make marriages stronger.
Complacency and comfortability can sometimes signal the dangers that make affairs possible. Communication is key for marriage that weather these storms. Carter is able to offer resources along with exercises and stories that can help us guard our marriages against affairs.
I believe this book is a great resource for pastors and couples and will use it in marriage counseling for years to come.
I received a free copy of this book from Moody Publishing in exchange for my honest review here.
