In this compassionate and carefully documented study, hefirst explores how the early Christians would have understood the statements of Jesus and Paul on divorce and remarriage. Keener then builds a soundly scriptural view of divorce andremarriage" a view that reminds the church that all of its members are forgiven people. Any Christian examining the issue of divorce and remarriage should read this book. " Bibliotheca Sacra A first-rate piece of pastoral scholarship. " Gordon D. Fee Regent College
