About-

With the increase in the divorce rate today, many people are more concerned than ever with what the Bible says about marriage and divorce. Keeping technical discussions to a minimum, James M. Efird helps readers explore the biblical teachings on these two important social customs.

The book begins by examining ideas connected with marriage against the ancient world and its practices and presuppositions. The investigation continues with a section focusing on the practice of and teachings about divorce, again set against the backdrop of the society and culture of biblical times. The last section of the book draws together some of the larger principles relating to marriage and divorce, based on the biblical investigation.
