There are few remaining topics in the Christian church that can raise a more vehement and diverse response than divorce. For the last thirty years, the church seems to have watched from the sidelines as the number of failed marriages within its membership has risen to reflect statistics alarmingly similar to the secular world.
Rather than addressing the reality that even some Christian marriages will end in divorce, church leaders have responded with a generally confusing mixture of ignoring the problem, or admonishing those struggling with bad marriages to simply figure out a way to remain in the marriage. These diametrically opposed tactics may seem to provide a comprehensive solution, but in fact leave in isolation the continually growing population of divorced Christians who must deal with this emotionally and spiritually charged life experience. Divorced but Not Forsaken: Experiencing God's Healing as Marriage Ends is the book that I needed to read as I was seeking answers during my own divorce.
"The healing process that transpires through the pages of Divorced but Not Forsaken can be felt by the writer and reader alike."

If the church is going to use the Bible to decide whether divorce is legitimate in certain cases and whether divorced couples have the right to remarry with the approval and blessing of God's people, then the Bible must be studied without prejudice toward a particular answer. The author examines the relevant passages in both the Old and New Testaments so that his readers can consider the many issues and interpretations that arise in trying to establish a consistently biblical position. As a result, readers can see more clearly and accept more firmly the truth of Scripture. The book succeeds at being exactly what the author wanted it to be: "a comprehensive, lucid, accurate study presented in a readable and practical style..."
