Jim is an author who discovered late in life that there is no replacement for connection – true connections with God and man. the kind of connection that requires a man to abandon himself and pour himself into the hearts of others.
Turner’s personal story is a sober reminder of the importance of truly walking in love and caring for one another in marriage. Too many wives can identify with being married to a disconnected man. Every one of them will benefit from reading this book.Lisa Jacobson, author of 100 Ways to Love Your Husband, www.club31women.com

This hope-filled book shows the high cost of remaining disconnected and gives husbands and wives insight, not only to understand each other better, but to find their way out of that desert into the rich, fulfilling relationship God intended.

The Disconnected Man
I was a disconnected man tripping through life with a happy disposition while my relationship with my wife was quietly dying. Once I discovered the truth about myself; that I was disconnected, disobedient, and downright relationally dysfunctional, I repented and began the long road to satisfying, intimate connection. I’ve opened my heart to spill out the truths I learned from the pain of traveling that lonely road with the desire to help couples emotionally connect in ways they never felt possible. I expose all the excuses disconnected men offer to protect themselves, calling them to obey the relational commands in the Bible, while giving women the hope that the emotional intimacy they crave is indeed possible.
Running Through The Storms Review:
“The Disconnected Man” by Jim Turner is a great book. Really. At first, I wasn’t sure i would benefit from it as a female, but then I really learned a lot about men who disconnect relationally from others, especially their wives. Honestly, this isn’t a book slamming men, the author writes from his own perspective and gives clarity on the subject. This book is perfect for the man in your life to see the areas where he is doing really well and the other areas where their may be things that bring awareness. I think this book is very helpful and I know my husband would enjoy this book. As I said before, Turner writes this book with taste and it isn’t meant to be as a slame.
This book is honest and even raw at times, but Jim has been there, he has battle scars and it’s very personal. Wives if you think that divorce is the answer, grab this book and read why your man has disconnected or read together. Don’t throw in the towel. This provides great insight. I give this book 4.5 /5 stars.
Review from ‘Running Through The Storms’
Appreciate the honest review from Sarah at ‘Running Through the Storms!’
Review from AmokArts,
I got this book as a review copy from the publisher because I thought it looked interesting. When I first started reading it, I thought I made a mistake, because I thought it was for women. I read a little further and thought it was for me, but slowly I came to the point of realizing it just might be for me.
This book is about men who disconnect relationally from others, especially from their spouses. The reason for my early confusion is because Turner sort of jumps back and forth between writing to the disconnected man and then writing to the women who love them. To be perfectly honest, I thought I was doing well in most of the areas this book explores but after reading them, I can see that a. I have come a long way, and b. I have a long way to go. This may be one of the most helpful books I have ever read. I truly believe every man should probably read this book, because Turner delves deep into the blindspots many of us carry.
This is not some over your head, psychological self-help book. This is a book written by someone whose been there. It is full of the author’s personal examples and battle scars. The book manages to walk the line between extremely challenging and extremely rewarding. I can’t say I enjoyed this book. That would be like saying I enjoyed surgery. What I will say instead is this is an important book that I am glad I read. Men, read this book. Women, if you find yourself having a hard time with your relationship, don’t separate, read this book.
Review from ‘AmokArts’
It’s so rewarding to hear from men who read the book and see themselves in it. So glad for Dave’s interest and response!
