Bishop T.D. Jakes uses a non-fiction book entitled "Not Easily Broken" (Hardcover;$23.99) to peer into the provocative topics of infidelity, interrational relationships, ambitious women/passive men, overcoming personal tragedy and bridge it together to demonstrate God's unfailing love can restore it all.
The problems have been there for a long time. Dave and Clarice Johnson's marriage is slowly being wedged apart by misplaced independence and separate dreams. Dave has noticed Clarice pulling away emotionally and physically, but he doesn't know if it's because she feels that he hasn't been supportive enough of her career in real estate, or because she obviously disapproves of his choice to own and run a janitorial business.
Clarice's fierce independence threatens to drive them completely apart as she endures a hard recovery from a leg injury suffered in a car accident. Rather than let Dave support and take care of her, Clarice finds that she is more frustrated than ever with Dave, and with herself. As Dave faces temptations from an unexpected source during Clarice’s darkest days, the couple eventually learns the importance of promises made and kept, and they find that God speaks to them in the most unlikely places.
The film based on "Not Easily Broken" is currently set for theatrical release in 2007. The film version of Woman Thou Art Loosed grossed an impressive $2.5 million in its opening weekend in 2004. Jakes' writing is both challenging and encouraging, and reminds us that with God integrated into our lives—even a relationship on the rocks is not easily broken.
