an excellent resource! Dec 11, 2007
This is a very well-written book, in plain English, with clear answers to difficult questions. I appreciated the Biblical support for each conclusion drawn because I wanted to know what the Bible said about this topic, not what somebody's opinions were. It was also very interesting, never boring. I highly recommend this book!! Thank you, Dr. Walston!
Excellent Feb 1, 2007
Walston has done it again! I have been a pastor for thirteen years, and regarding marriage, divorce, and remarriage, I can find no better resource on the subject. Walston shows his ability to reach his audience; although he is a very well-educated individual, he doesn't boggle down the mind of his readers with scholarly terms and definitions.
The book is good for the graduate level students as well as the lay person in the congregation that has a heart to minister and counsel those that are just starting off in marriage and those that are looking for answers in their struggling marriages.
With the study questions for each chapter, the reader(s) will find this book becoming a practical study of biblical insight and knowledge.
This book is highly recommended.
A MUST READ FOR BOTH MINISTERS AND INDIVIDUALS IN GENERAL. Aug 23, 2006
Dr. Rick Walston brings more than two decades of ministerial experience to this work that examines the biblical view of marriage, divorce, and remarriage. He writes with a pastor's heart while sharing real-life stories that he has encountered over the years during counseling couples.
I highly recommend that ministers read this book so that they can learn from Dr. Walston's insights and experiences so that they know how to better minister to those who are struggling in a marriage, divorce, or remarriage.
Likewise, I highly recommend this book to anyone who is currently married because there are biblical lessons that can be learned from it that can strengthen the marriage covenant. This book is also helpful for the individual who has gone through the tradegy of divorce: God is capable and able to help individuals through the healing process that follows the divorce. Furthermore, those who have experienced divorce and are now remarried can learn biblical truth on their situation as well.
I learned the hard way Jun 16, 2006
I was amazed at the way that Dr. Walston wrote this book . . . it was almost like reading a novel, but it was full of theological insight. The real-life stories at the start of each chapter really sets the stage for the truths that are to come. I learned about divorce and remarriage the hard way, "school of hard knocks." Then I learned about my real-life D&R in the context of the Bible and What God has to say about it through this book. I wish I had known about these things that Walston teaches on years ago; perhaps, then I would not have made the mistakes that I did. I've been recommending this book to many friends.
single best book on these difficult subjects May 24, 2006
After Reading Dr. Walston's other book, "The Speaking in Tongues Controversy: The Initial, Physical Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit Debate," I was excited to read this book, so I bought it immediately. I was not disappointed. Walston demonstrates the same level of Biblical scholarship in this book as he does in his other book, yet all the while making it easily understandable for the lay-person. His writing is clear and easy to understand. He takes some very difficult issues (and passages of Scripture) and makes them very clear. This book has now become my primary text for premarital, divorce, and remarriage counseling. If you are divorced and remarried or you minister to people who are, you need this book. It is, in my humble opinion, the single best book on these difficult subjects.
