Synopsis: Divorce and remarriage in the church have been subjects of debate and controversy for centuries. With conflicting messages coming from different branches of the church, many Christians are confused. Heth and Wenham explore the different schools of interpretation and present a fresh consideration of the various statements of Jesus and Paul, drawing on linguistic and contemporary cultural evidence. They closely criticize the view that allows remarriage after divorce on the grounds of immorality, widely held by evangelicals today. Instead the authors turn to the Early Church, which permitted divorce but not remarriage. Written with clarity and careful consideration, this book encourages us to apply the Bible's teachings to our lives.
From the Publisher: Challenges the view of marriage, divorce and remarriage that is held widely by today's Evangelical churches. Contains an analysis of the Church Fathers' beliefs through the first five centuries.
Well-researched, and thoroughly documented and supported. Provides an important contribution to the ongoing debate on divorce. Biblically and historically coherent.
