This book probes into the difficult issues of divorce and separation among Christians. It raises cogent questions about biblical teaching on divorce and looks at several of the difficult texts dealing with the issue. The book is not definitive, but certainly is instructive and thought-provoking.

A second section of the book reports on pilot seminars on divorce and separation conducted by the author at local churches, held with the purpose of increasing the sensitivity of the church to the multiple issues involved in divorce and seeking to broaden congregants' vision for the emotional support of divorced and separated members.

This book is valuable for family life counselors, educators, and pastors. It answers some questions and raises many more.
