Publisher's Description

What happens to a child s soul when his or her world is ripped in two?


Many research studies tout the benefits of good divorce, but when Elizabeth Marquardt conducted her own survey, published as Between Two Worlds: The Inner Lives of Children of Divorce (Crown, 2005), she found that children of failed marriages suffer deep spiritual wounds. Yes, these children can finish school, get jobs, and build stable families, but they must accomplish all of these feats while enduring the crippling effects of grief, loneliness, and premature responsibility. Faith can help them persevere if they find it, often without help from their parents or the church.

How do broken family bonds mar the biblical picture of childhood? How does divorce affect the way children read the Bible? What can churches do to embrace children of divorce? These are the questions explored in this study.
