Focus on the Family to release new book on communication differences between husbands and wives

Carol Stream, Ill. (July 10, 2019) Focus on the Family, in alliance with Tyndale House Publishers, will release Men Are Clams, Women Are Crowbars on September 3, 2019. In this eminently practical book, Dr. David E. Clarke unpacks what he calls the “crazy-making” differences of men and women and their impact on marriages. He examines the widely divergent ways men and women approach emotional issues, then offers solutions for those couples who want to bridge the gender gap.

Men Are Clams, Women Are Crowbars outlines the different levels that men and women operate on during every interaction, as well as techniques for connecting in conversation. Dr. Clarke guides couples toward the relationship they desire and the one God wants them to experience. Couples will laugh at the familiar male/female scenarios while learning how to complement one another, improve romance, and spiritually bond as married couples.

Dr. David E. Clarke is a Christian psychologist, popular speaker, and successful author. A grad­uate of Dallas Theological Seminary and Western Conservative Baptist Seminary, he holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and has been in full-time private practice for more than 28 years. Dr. Clarke lives in Florida with his wife, Sandy, and their four children.

Men Are Clams, Women Are Crowbars by David E. Clarke, Ph.D., with William G. Clarke, M.A.
