Self-Centered Spouse Self-Centered Spouse

Help for Chronically Broken Marriages

by Hambrick, Brad

Hope for Genuine Change. Anyone who is married is already a self-centered spouse . . . but when this all-too-common sin becomes severe and chronic, it results in a marital environment of abuse or neglect—leaving the 'victimized' spouse feeling trapped and hopeless. But how might this hopelessness change if we knew that Jesus addressed just such chronically broken relationships? The author examines Jesus’ teachings about relationships to show us how we can turn the other cheek while keeping away from unhealthy and destructive paths. He identifies different types of self-centered spouses to show us what we are dealing with, shares strategies for interacting with them, and points to evidences of genuine change to bring hope to anyone living with a chronically self-centered spouse. This booklet is part of a series by the Association of Biblical Counselors (ABC) in which it applies the timeless hope of Christ to the unique struggles of modern believers. Endorsements: “Gives sound biblical wisdom for how to recognize [abusive] patterns and practical guidelines for how to address and tackle them.” —Leslie Vernick, licensed counselor, author of The Emotionally Destructive Marriage; “Overflows with wisdom, hope, and compassion for the abused or neglected spouse as well as for the offending spouse.” —Justin Holcomb, coauthor of Is It My Fault? and Rid of My Disgrace; “The gospel isn’t just an ethereal idea. It’s not a philosophy and it’s not static. It moves and shapes and transforms. I am grateful for ABC’s work of letting the gospel bear its weight on these real life sorrows and pains.” —Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church, Flower Mound, Texas.
