Divorce and Remarriage in the Church
Divorce and remarriage are major issues that churches face today. Some say that divorce and remarriage is never allowed. Others say that both are permitted, but only under certain circumstances. So who’s right?
In Divorce and Remarriage in the Church, Dr. David Instone-Brewer brings clarity to an unclear subject. After three years of research into the background literature of the Bible, he explains that the Bible isn’t as unclear on the subject of divorce as many think.
He answers the tough questions about divorce and remarriage, giving insight on what is said in the Bible, and also how the church should respond to these issues. He shows how, when properly understood, the New Testament provides faithful, realistic, and wise guidance for the church today.
Dr. David Instone-Brewer is a research fellow at Tyndale House, a research library in biblical studies located in Cambridge, England. He previously served as a Baptist minister. He is now engaged in a five-year project to identify and explain rabbinic traditions before A.D. 70. In his free time, he enjoys writing computer programs.
