This is an excellent book. Elliff and his fellow elders have put together a thoughtful, biblical, and pastoral case for the permanence view. I would strongly encourage anyone who preaches, teaches, and or counsels on marriage to read this book, as well as Christians who have been divorced or remarried. I recommend this all the time. I have also counseled a formerly divorced brother who has since reconciled with his wife based much on help from this great book!

I thought this was a well-reasoned defense of the permanence view of marriage. i.e. that divorce and remarriage are both biblical indefensible. I appreciated the format, how the authors would present their view and then respond to objections. However, I still believe the arguments fell short at some critical points, and I will still have to probe further in figuring out where I land on this issue. This book is an important and accessible contribution to the issue of the Christian view of divorce ...more

The best handling of Divorce and Remarriage that I have seen. Answered every question that I could think of with Scripture this is a priceless resource on the subject. I am very thankful for it.

While not convinced of the authors' view, I appreciated very much the deep commitment to Scripture. A worthwhile contribution.

I disagree on some points (including conclusion) but a well written defense of the permanence view of marriage.
