Ess-Jee Rautenbach, author of ‘How To Stand For Your Marriage: Giving Hope To A Broken Generation’, has been chosen as a finalist for '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading'. Winners will appear in this years edition of the book. Rautenbach was chosen as the result of his appearance on The Authors Show Radio.

Many people go through divorce or marriage separation in society today. Marriages have become disposable and. when faced with marital difficulties and adversity, some just cut their losses and move on. This results in many people carrying guilt, shame and brokenness.

"I began working with troubled marriages," stated Mr. Rautenbach, "in 2009. I believe God led me to start a ministry for people going through hurt in their marriages to give them the same hope the Lord gave me when no one else could help. In the darkest hour of my life, the separation of my own marriage, I turned to God and He gave me hope and promise. 'Covenant marriage restoration' is now my passion. I have seen marriage after marriage after marriage restored and renewed through the simple principles outlined in the oldest book known to mankind - the Bible."

Divorce rates today are staggering. However divorce is not just a killer of marriages; it can be a killer of families and the cause of the decline of family values in our society. Ess-Jee Rautenbach believes this does not have to be and encourages readers to stand firm in marriage; to never give in or over.

A recent reviewer stated, "Ess-Jee Rautenbach stands firm on God’s purpose and offers hope for floundering marriages. All marriages go through rocky periods. However, that does not mean we are released from our vows, responsibilities or commitments. Divorce does not hurt only the husband and wife but their children, grandchildren, parents, siblings, and friends. Rautenbach reminds us that we have a great authority to turn to when our marriage falls apart . . . "

"Never give up on your marriage," Rautenbach continued, "even if your marriage seems hopeless and dead. There is always hope for you and your marriage. God can breathe back life into your marriage. God heals hurting marriages. I personally have witnessed many marriages where couples were reconciled, restored and their dead marriages were resurrected after they had divorced. Even new love was ignited in their hearts for one another through the mighty hand of God. God is not a respecter of person, so what He did for these couples, He can do for you. In this book, readers can find the beginnings of new hope for any marriage."
