Product Description

The author displays a compassionate concern for those who, because of the stigma in many of our churches reguarding divorce and remarriage, are treated as second-class Christians. Rev. Duty uses his knowledge of Greek studies and settings of the Old and New Testaments, and each conclusion is tested by the application of the accepted rules of biblical interpretation.

Publisher's Description

What does the Bible teach about Divorce? May a Christian remarry during the lifetime of a divorced partner? With the increasing number of divorces and second marriages, such questions now touch every family and every church. Cornes addresses these and other questions in a comprehensive and balanced manner.
Cornes begins his book with a theology of marriage and singleness, examining all the significant Old and New Testament passages. He concentrates especially on the teaching of Jesus and the interpretation of that teaching by Paul and the early church.
The second part of the book discusses the implications of the biblical teaching of pastoral ministry in the local church, dealing with a host of real life questions in a practical way.

Author Bio

Former director of training at All Souls, London and now pastor of All Saints Church, Crowborough, East Sussex.

Editorial Reviews

It takes us behind local or denominational concerns to face the clarity of Christ's own teaching. If that teaching often startled and changed his disciples, it may yet do so for us.
...a balanced combination of biblical scholarship and practical experience, prophetic witness and pastoral wisdom, courage and compassion, truth and love. It will, I predict, ...become indispensable reading for everybody who is anxious to develop a Christian Mind on these topics.
This is a challenging and stimulating book of great value to those in ministry who have responsibility for teaching about and being involved with situations of divorce and remarriage.
'The book we have all been waiting for' and 'one of the great books of our day.'
