Description

New from Wayne Grudem

The topic of divorce is a complicated one, even among Christians. The Bible provides some clear answers, but other areas remain blurry: Is divorce morally acceptable in a case of physical abuse? If a divorce is granted for biblically legitimate reasons, is remarriage allowed? Can a divorced person become a church officer? In this short booklet, theologian Wayne Grudem offers a thought-provoking analysis of what the Bible says—and doesn’t say—about divorce and remarriage. By combining theological insight with practical application—including an argument that 1 Corinthians 7:15 permits divorce for abuse—Grudem brings clarity to a difficult topic and helpful guidance to those looking for direction.

Endorsements

“Fresh contributions to the longstanding debate over divorce and remarriage are rare. The relevant biblical texts have been picked over for centuries, and the lines of debate have hardened. And yet, somehow, Wayne Grudem has given us that rare, fresh insight into the Bible that changes everything. Grudem affirms the traditional Erasmian view, which allows for divorce and remarriage in cases of sexual immorality and desertion. But he also shows—based on new research on 1 Corinthians 7:15—that divorce and remarriage are permitted in cases of abuse as well. Grudem offers compassionate, biblical advice to those wrestling with the ethics of divorce. Anyone who wishes to understand what the Bible teaches about divorce and remarriage must reckon with this book.”
Denny Burk, author, What Is the Meaning of Sex?

“Future generations will thank God for Wayne Grudem’s groundbreaking research on the text of 1 Corinthians 7:15 and his broad pastoral wisdom on the Bible’s teaching on divorce and remarriage.”
R. Kent HughesSenior Pastor Emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois
