About the Author
A student of the Bible since early childhood, Joseph Pote was literally raised in church, attending multiple church services and Bible studies each week. Having also endured the devastation of a failed marriage, Joseph combines a sound understanding of biblical principles and clear explanation of scripture with personal experience of the issues and concerns of believers who have experienced divorce.

Joseph Pote writes in the vein of God's true instruction about divorce. He makes no apologies or excuses. He says what God says and explains it with scripture--not modern culture. In that, we read the heart of God. His intention for marital oneness does not exclude His compassion on those wounded by broken covenants. He does provide a way out, just as He always mercifully makes a way for us out of any kind of bondage. It is not an escape clause, but a blueprint to follow in cases where freedom is needed and warranted.
God hates divorce because He hates what causes divorce. He hates it for you if you have to get a divorce, because that means a painful ripping happened to you. He hated it that He had to divorce Israel, but it was a necessary separation. He had His valid reasons, and He gives us our valid reasons when it is necessary for us to separate. Thank you for ministering to hurting people through this book, Joe. As a Christian author who has written about starting over and giving people hope in midlife, I appreciate this kind and scripturally eye-opening teaching, showing us clearly that God never intended to chain us to lifelong heartache when there cannot be a viable resolution.
The book begins by examining the problem of trying to be Christ-like when divorced - something that never happened and seems improbable. It then uses the concepts of "covenant" and "redemption" as defined in the Bible to offer the divorced Christian a new path toward a Christ-like life.
The remainder of the book is devoted to "myths" surrounding divorce that have the potential to derail this new relationship with God. All-in-all, it would be the perfect book for a Sunday school class or Bible study. It gives a framework for showing this situation from a new viewpoint and offers just enough detail to generate good, deep discussions.
My first impulse on reading it was to get someone else to read it so that we could discuss it.
