Case studies apply theories to real-life situations. Contributors are J. Carl Laney, William A. Heth, Thomas R. Edgar, and Larry Richards. Paperback.

Publisher's Description

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 causes, points to a God of grace who will not condemn those who divorce and remarry. Such a sensitive debate cannot remain abstract, so a case study accompanies each position, followed by critical responses from each essayist. The result is a thoughtful, helpful resource for all who wish to think biblically about a crucial issue confronting the church.

    As stated by the other review this book is not for everyone. It is for the person who wishes to wrestle their way through the difficulties this topic presents in order to make an informed opinion on this subject that they can feel comfortable defending from the Word of God. This was a text for an independent study that I did in seminary. I have loaned out the book to people who have questions on this cultural/biblical issue.

    This book isn't for everyone -- persons wanting a straightforward, Biblically-based position on divorce and remarriage should look elsewhere. For most believers, this volume will bring more confusion than clarity. For persons who are familiar with these various views however, there is some helpful information present.The four views stated are: no divorce no remarriage, divorce but no remarriage, divorce and remarriage for adultery or desertion, and divorce and remarriage under a variety of circumstances. The first three positions are offered with so many footnotes and scholarly jargon that the reader gets lost in the shuffle. Only Richards, who presents the fourth view, is easy to understand and to follow in his reasoning.I can only recommend this book to Christian leaders who want to read a large sampling of materials on this topic. It certainly is not a concise summary of the various viewpoints on divorce and remarriage. For a single, straightforward presentation on this subject, try "Remarriage: A Healing Gift of God" by Larry Richards.
