The matter of marriage and divorce has become sensitive, emotive, and even controversial. Married couples who experience tension in their relationship need all the help they can get to weather the storms of humanism, selfishness and hedonism, which have all contributed to the havoc which has led to the unfortunate dissolution of far too many marriages. Words in season from every possible source are necessary to stem the tide of marital failure. Here, with deep insight and careful pastoral sensitivity, Martin Holdt brings clear and practical teaching from the Bible on the topic.
Thoroughly biblical and lovingly written, it will… be a valuable tool for pastors to give to all who are thinking of or struggling with divorce.

...Trenchantly biblical, fervently compassionate, thoroughly sensible. Pastor Holdt so deftly combines realism and hope in this treatment of divorce.
