Most of us find the frailty of this sacred institution baffling. Christians seem more prone to divorce than ever, and the children of divorce are suffering.
So with the heart of a teacher, David Gushee advises the church to rethink marriage and divorce. An excellent resource for starting a ministry in your local church, this passionate and concrete treatment of how churches can strengthen marriage and prevent divorce will provide clarity amidst confusion and help men and women keep faith with one another and with their children.
