Customer Reviews

I could not agree more with Mr. Laney.

I was raised in the Episcopal Church but now am more of a Baptist/Southeastern Mennonite.

I'm sorry, but I find this book very suspicious.

The Rev. Fr. Johann W. Vanderbijl III

My mother divorced her first husband because he beat her repeatedly and severely. (He evidently did the same thing to his second wife, allegedly attempting to strangle her in front of my older half-brother.) She was excommunicated by the Church of England for doing so, an act that caused her to lose her faith for a long period of time. Nonetheless, she did get remarried to my father and I am the second of their two children. All this to say that I must admit that I approach any book on divorce and remarriage with a certain presupposition firmly in place - just like the four different writers. Perhaps it is best to be up front about the myth of total objectivity and at least be honest with regard to one's particular slant. Having said that, I agree with all of the writers that the Scriptures must be allowed to speak for themselves and in trying to find a solution to this very emotional and difficult subject one must strive to be as objective as possible, however hard that may be.

57 of 65 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on August 10, 1999
Format: Paperback
I was looking for a book to assist me in finding God's direction and "perfect" will for my life. After almost 30 years of marriage my husband has left me and we've been separated for 1 1/2 years. (I couldn't agree to irreconcilable differences. To sign an agreement like that would be like lying...I believe God can reconcile any situation.) We will be separated 2 yrs. in October and he will divorce me without my permission (Illinois Law). I need (desperately)to find where, in the eyes of God, this leaves me.
I had hoped to receive insight from this book. However, I found it very difficult to follow (as a layperson). I think it is too "deep" (going way too far into the discussion of the Greek, Hebrew, Latin...inflection of words and phrases). I was looking for something a bit more practical easier to follow.
This would be a good book for a pastor's study or a Christian counselor/educator....but my personal opinion is that it really was not benefical to me .... I needed direction, wisdom, and guidance...and I didn't find it there. Several times I prayed for God to "focus" my thinking and help me to understand and to see, through the Holy Spirit, the direction and guidance I was trying to find. The more I read, the more frustrated I became.
I am a reasonably well rounded and well-educated person, but I felt this book was too difficult to follow and that each primary chapter (or point of view) was too long and it belabored each point.
Sorry....

21 of 22 people found the following review helpful By Bruce Robinson on March 10, 2000
Format: Paperback
A well written book in which four sincere, intelligent conservative Christians extract biblical passages in support of four completely different views on divorce and remarriage. No consensus appears to be possible on this topic. Each of the authors's cases appear quite strong. A frustrating book if the reader is looking for a single belief concerning divorce and remarriage. An excellent review of the ambiguity of the Bible on these two topics.

20 of 27 people found the following review helpful By S. A. Chapman on November 11, 2001
Format: Paperback
In some ways this book is incredibly amusing. The four writers hold radically different views (no divorce and no remarriage; divorce but no remarriage; divorce and remarriage for adultery and desertion; and divorce and remarriage under a variety of circumstances). They not only give one presentation of their own views but get to comment on the presentations of the others. You may come away from the book slightly light-headed, but the format ensures that no-one gets away without criticism. The funny bit is that, although the writers are all fundamentally opposed to each other's interpretations, they all go out of the way to be really nice about each other first. It's like "Mr X is an incredibly nice man and a good Christian - I am now going to show you how he allows people to commit adultery and leads millions astray."
There are a couple of dangers of having such a book. One is that you may be trying to decide which of the four writers is right. Don't forget the option that they may all have valid points to make, but that the truth might be a fifth explanation that none of them would entirely agree with. The second is that all the arguments, some of them finely constructed, may discourage you from being able to find the truth. Remember, just because some Christians make it sound complicated, doesn't mean that it isn't actually simple and understandable.
