The Lord has provided the Christian couple a protective shield of biblical principles. The pity is that these principles are not clearly understood by all. These pages then are for all Christian couples, not just for those facing marriage difficulties. Although the Lord's counsel on divorce and remarriage will be highlighted as the "pound of cure," these principles will be introduced by an emphasis on his "ounce of prevention." Only by a proper understanding of God's purpose in marriage can the difficulties and solution to marriage breakup be understood. - Introduction.

While religious leaders are frantically pointing at the danger of rationalistic humanism outside the Church, many of these very same leaders are unknowingly, and we want to emphasize, unknowingly, teaching from their pulpits one of the most permissive and destructive concepts of humanistic doctrine ever devised by man: the present-day teachings concerning marriage, divorce and remarriage. As a result, the divorce rate in the Church is higher today than in the unchurched world. As you read this book, you will be confronted with a humanistic worldview and a biblical worldview concerning divorce and remarriage. - Introduction.

Dear Pastor, One of my Christian friends gave me a copy of your book entitled Biblical Misconceptions About Divorce and Remarriage. Let me just say that even as I write this email to you, my vision is still blurry from all the tears of relief and gratitude I have shed. I have been living under the cloud of Second Class Christian at best and Adulteress Who Will Burn In Hell at worst for a very long time now. I have always felt that I was still accepted by the Lord because of what I know of His character. But, I have been periodically assaulted by this condemnation for a long time. At times, I didnt even want to go to church any more because of all the condemnation I felt, even though in my heart, I still knew that the Lord loved me. Your book was a Gift from God. I really dont have the words sufficient enough to tell you how much this teaching has meant to me. I was married to an abusive man, and because I left him and remarried, I am considered the bad guy. During this marriage, I had a very loving friend call me up weekly - if not more often - to make sure I was even still alive. It was, needless to say, a very stressful time in my life. And then, to be rejected by some Christians because of my remarriage, to be called an adulteress, to be called an unrepentant sinner - was another arrow shot at my already broken heart. I wish I could give you a present that compares to the gift you have given me. All I can offer you is a Thank You from a formerly broken hearted Christian who has now come to realize, more than I have ever realized before, how much the Lord loves and accepts me. (Colleen)

A substantial challenge facing the Church today is to help young married couples grow in the attitudes and skills needed to take seriously the indissolubility of their marriage. In a sense, Kelly contends, young couples must begin to realize that they have to create the indissolubility of their own marriage, if it is to exist. Kelly also suggests that the Church should develop an effective theology of pastoral care for those who have been through the trauma of marriage breakdown. While remarriage is not a panacea for everyone wounded in this way, for some it brings real healing and new life. This new edition contains a new introduction and a substantial new Appendix containing a rich collection of articles and book extracts related to divorce and remarriage in the Church. A useful and informative resource for those who minister to the married, divorced and remarried within the faith community.
