Where to Purchase


Gary and Carrie Oliver have written a practical book to help couples focus their passion in ways that lead to trust, understanding, and intimacy. They want Christian couples to develop Christ-centered marriages, and that includes dealing with issues that prevent intimacy such as fear, frustration, and anger. They demonstrate how the energy--or passion--of the God-given emotion anger can actually be harnessed in ways that build and strengthen a marriage relationship and free couples from one of Satan's most destructive weapons--unhealthy anger.


For more than a quarter of a century Dr. Gary Oliver has pioneered and served the needs of pre-married and married couples nationwide. I know Gary to be a good man and an authentic man who has faithfully loved and cared for the needs of his wife, Carrie, as she has battled cancer for the last couple of years. There is no greater statement of a man's life than the private love and commitment that he shows for his wife.

Dr. Gary Oliver is not only my key mentor in life, but the person who helped me really understand what's beneath the power of anger and what you can do about it.
