"I once had an acquaintance who refused to hear me when I tried to help him see the error of his way. He had recently started an affair. Details beyond that are not necessary. While it became obvious he didn't care about his wife (at least not now that he had found his "soul mate"), I fe

I would have to say that the topic of this book alone would make it very unpopular. Don't get me wrong, it's not that no one is doing it, or that most even consider it all that wrong, its just that no one likes to call it for what it is. Adultery just sounds so serious, so wrong. Who wants that kind of stigma attached to their actions? It makes love sound so dirty.

Well that is exactly what this book seeks to do, to call adultery by name and reacquaint it with its sinfulness and shame. N

“Thou shalt not commit adultery.” – Exodus 20:14
Wow, this book really hits the nail on the head about the subject of adultery. This book tackles one of the most sensitive commandments out of the ten commandments. I take a look at how the book is written and its laid out in a manner that follows a simple to understand flow.
The book starts off with tackling God’s View on the subject of committing adultery which in this chapter is clearly lays out what will happen if you don’t follow this simple y

If you are deeply religious or want to become deeply religious in the Christian faith and want to learn what the Bible states about infidelity, then this is a book you must read. While I am in the faith, this book was truly an eye-opening experience. The beginning of the book is where Edward Mrkvicka explains definitions of chosen words and where hand-picked verses from the Bible are written. He does explain his devotion to Christianity very plainly and with a lot of conviction. You really can’t ...more

Edward Mrkvicka is a lay minister and Christian counselor who passionately writes about marriage, family and other related issues from the Biblical perspective. No Innocent Affair is his latest contribution to his writings.
In the beginning, Ed Mrkvicka is very clear about his Biblical stance. He is aware through experience in his counseling on the issue of adultery that he makes many people uncomfortable with the truth. He makes no apology. He hopes that the truth will guide people to better be

Marriage is sacred and binding. “Whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.” Matt 5:32. A “certificate of divorce to dismiss her was permitted by Moses because of the hardness of your hearts. But from the beginning of the creation, God made them male and female … to leave and cleave and become one …Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” Mark 10:4-9.

No Innocent Affair Making Right The Wrong Of Adultery was a book that can really assist clearing any misconceptions that people have about adultery and affairs within relationships. Edward F.

"Thou shalt not commit adultery" - Exodus 20:14

No Innocent Affair is about GOD's view of adultery versus society's view of adultery, and it details how the practice of adultery can ruin more than just a marriage. This book leads the reader through GOD's words in the Bible and shows them that with repentance- salvation and forgiveness can be reclaimed after one has committed sins of adultery.

NO INNOCENT AFFAIR was a good inspirational read. The author conveys the good and evil things people do in relationships from a Christian point of view.

The author didn't mince words. He spoke of what a good marriage is. I think that many affairs are much alike and are done from many of the same reasons. The author talks of a more healthy Christian approach to marriage. I believe that a single person when entering into a relationship has questions about being married. Married people have q

I liked the basic premise of the book that there is "no innocent affair". Everything leading to an affair is intertwined giving many opportunities to change your way. Mrkvicka takes the first chapter of the book to list Scriptures that pertain to the topic or issues related to it. He doesn't make comments about them, just works to categorize them. If you sit down and reflect on them, you can draw your own conclusions about the issue. Then, on next chapter he goes on to deal with the way the soci ...more

I chose to read this book because a dear friend of mine had committed adultery despite the fact that he is a fundamentalist Christian. He and his wife are still struggling to put their marriage back together and I hoped for some helpful information to offer him about how to " make right the wrong". Perhaps this book would be helpful in dissuading a Christian who was considering adultery from committing adultery since Mrkvicka cites every single scriptural reference against it in the book but sad ...more

Verses of Reflection
No Innocent Affair by Edward Mrkvicka is about adultery and attitude through the written scriptures. Because Ed Mrkvicka is a minister and counselor; I found that there was a need for a compassionate awareness that shapes up his message through the verses of the Bible. His views reflect the words found in the Bible. All the verses found in the first sixty-five pages are written down for many to understand its meaning in a very comprehensive way.

"No Innocent Affair" by Edward F. Mrkvicka Jr

If you are not a true Christian and your heart is stony soil, this book will make you angry, with very little desire to continue reading after the Introduction. I would encourage you though, to read on; for the Spirit of God who raised Jesus from the dead can soften your heart too.

On the other hand, if you are indeed a true believer, and your heart is fertile soil to the will of Almighty God, you will experience the exhilaration of hearing God's Word

This book is easy to read, the author will speak to the reader as an old friend rather than forcing his views upon the reader. The topic is not an easy one: adultery. This book is well-suited for non-adulterers and repentant adulterers alike. The author uses many studies, some that would appear to be against his cause, but he manages to convince the reader anyway. The damaging ability of adultery to ruin relationships not only between partners but also between parents and children and parents an ...more

Finally -- someone has the spiritual courage to speak God's truth on the subject of adultery.

This book simply cannot be ignored. It's easy to read, written in a conversational tone, and reflects the passionate ministry of its author. Really, I've never read a book like this. The truth of its message is overwhelming. The author, motivated by Christian love, takes no prisoners. He does not bend to the secular. I couldn't find one thing he said that is not substantiated in the Bible. This book is f

The Consequences of Infidelity

“No Innocent Affair” by Edward F. Mrkvicka Jr. with Kelly Helen Mrkvicka is a straightforward and illustrative book that defines the magnitude of committing adultery within any relationship. The authors introduce vital definitions in the introduction and make clear the intended acts of behavior which is expected in God’s view for all couples. The ideas given are equivalent to strong belief in religion which should be demonstrated amongst countless people. However, c
No Innocent Affair is a very straight forward to the point book, which is on a very touchy subject especially in America. With so many places today saying how adultery is normal and ok, Edward and Kelly give the biblical truth on the matter.
Edward is a Fundamentalist Christian, which shows in his writing as he does not sugar coat things to make the reader get false warm fuzzies. This book only speaks the truth and does not apologize for any hurt feelings in the process. They were not out to mak
