Making Sense of the Differences that Divide U.

Making Sense of the Differences that Divide Us. by Joy Downs, Tim Downs.

Sometimes a conflict is more than a simple disagreement--it's a virtual clash of worldviews, and the disagreement appears impossible to resolve because it seems inconceivable to consider the issue from any perspective other than the one you know to be correct. Thus, the title of the book...One of Us Must Be Crazy... and I'm Pretty Sure It's You. In this companion to Fight Fair! (a treatise on "winning at conflict without losing at love"), Tim and Joy Downs capture the heart of marital differences. This time they concentrate less on how to fight fair, and more on making sense of the differences that divide us. With marriages coming under attack from seemingly every angle these days, conflict is seen as grounds to end a marriage, rather than an opportunity to grow closer to each other and to God. One of Us Must Be Crazy... and I'm Pretty Sure It's You is a unique and manageable resource for equipping couples to learn the true nature of their conflicts and deal with them in a way that will actually help their marital fulfillment. By interacting candidly and honestly with such issues as security, loyalty, responsibility, caring, order, openness, and connection, Tim and Joy Downs have created a resource that might simply make all the difference in your world.

My fiancée and I just completed premarital counseling by working together through this book. Tim and Joy Downs wrote the book as if they were addressing married couples, but it was still easy to follow along and actually served as a catalyst for a lot of potential issues we had never discussed up to that point. I really admired how the Downs were able to get to the root of a lot of commonplace disagreements or sticking points in relationships through one of their seven "differences that divide." It helped us to identify personal issues from our past and present that cause us to respond to disagreements in the ways that we do.

The only thing that bothered me about the book was the writing style. I felt like the Downs tried a little too hard to be humorous and work "one-liners" into their dialogues of couples having disagreements. As the book progressed, the dialogues took on a noticeably hostile tone, which the Downs never addressed as being an inappropriate way to fight. Perhaps they assumed that most couples know better than to personally attack one another, but that's a pretty risky assumption to make when writing a book of this nature.

Was looking for a book on conflict resolution and purchased this one to have a look. This book is GREAT! It carefully explains why disagreements happen. I do not read very often but I couldn't put this book down.
