Divorce. ... No one likes it, but it doesn't go away. Even among Christians, the divorce rate continues to climb. How should Christians approach this issue? May Christians ever legitimately divorce? If they divorce legitimately, may they remarry?Not everyone who appeals to Scripture agrees on how we should understand what it says about divorce and remarriage. In this book, four authors present their distinct perspectives. Carl Laney argues that the Bible indicates that marriages are always intended to be permanent, that there is never a need for divorce and that remarriage is never permissible after divorce. William Heth contends that while there are legitimate biblical grounds for divorce, there are no legitimate grounds for remarriage after divorce. Thomas Edgar defends the position that Scripture allows for divorce and remarriage in cases of adultry or desertion. Larry Richards holds that Scripture, while decrying divorce and the pain it cuases, points to a God of grace who will not condemn those who divorce and remarry.Each essayist in this collection not only presents his own case but critiques the position of the others. Case studies at the end of each essay help to make theory face reality.Here is a book helpful to all who wish to think biblically about a crucial issue confronting the church.Features & Benefits* case studies at the end of each chapter* four essayist differ in view and critique one anotherTable of ContentsIntroduction--H.
