Jesus and Divorce
Divorce and remarriage in the Church have been subjects of debate and controversy for centuries and the issue is of ever-increasing importance today. With conflicting messages coming from different branches of the Church, many Christians are confused as to what the Bible really teaches. William Heth and Gordon 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, Jesus and Divorce offers a positive way forward, as the authors encourage us to apply the Bible's teachings to our lives and the lives of those around us.
