When the Vow Breaks: A Survival and Recovery Guide for Christians Facing Divorce


B&H 1993

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Maybe your marriage is finished—but God isn’t. Contrary as it is to God’s ideal, and hard as it is for many Christians to accept, divorce is a harsh and potentially devastating reality. What can you do as a Christian when facing your own divorce? Or how can you help someone else who’s going through one? When the Vow Breaks is a valuable resource, written by a Christian who has lived through an unwanted divorce himself.

With its extensive bibliography and other useful aids, such as sample financial settlement statements and legal correspondence, When the Vow Breaks is a must for anyone facing or recovering from the breakup of marriage.

Key Features

In this sensitive yet extremely comprehensive guide—revised and updated after many years of ministering hope to thousands—attorney Joseph Warren Kniskern describes the emotional aspects of his own failed marriage, while also providing a thorough study of what the Bible says about marriage, divorce, and remarriage. More importantly, he shows how God can and does continue to work in people’s lives, even in the aftermath of divorce. In When the Vow Breaks, you’ll discover a wealth of professional insight, including:

  • How to seek reconciliation
  • Locating proper counseling
  • Considering separation
  • Finding a good attorney
  • Negotiating settlements and custody issues
