Product description

We believe our conclusions are of vital concern to the individual Christian, the church and the whole of Society. May God give all of us the grace to know his will and live by it.Divorce and remarriage in the Church have been subjects of debate and controversy for centuries, and the issue is of ever-increasing importance today. With conflicting messages coming from different branches of the Church, many Christians are confused to what the Bible really teaches.William Heth and Gordan Wenham explore the different schools of interpretation and present a fresh consideration of the various statements of Jesus and Paul, drawing on linguistic and contemporary cultural evidence. They closely criticize the view that allows remarriage after divorce on the grounds of immorality, widely held by evangelicals today. Instead the authors turn to the early Church, which permitted divorce but not remarriage. Written with clarity and careful consideration, Jesus and Divorce provides an important contribution to the ongoing debate on divorce. It offers a positive way forward, as the authors encourage us to apply the Bibles teachings to our lives and the lives of those around us.
