Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage in the...

Jay Adams wrote this book in 1980. At the time he was professor of practical theology at Westminster Theological Seminary. For those of us who have read Adams most of our lives, we remember books such as Competent to Counsel, and The Christian Counselor’s Manual, and a host of other books. Adams is a Reformed […]

The Divorce Dilemma

John MacArthur has taken the “Innocent Party View” of divorce and remarriage throughout his writing career. This 2009 book is no different.

This book […]

Married for God

This is a follow-up book to be read after Christopher Ash wrote (2003) Marriage–Sex in the Service of God.  In this book (2016) he uses that older title as a theme. That first book is almost 400 pages and is much more detailed. This book is only about 170 pages of text and is easier […]

Ash is concerned with fidelity to the marriage covenant, or I should say, with the lack of fidelity today. This is a 2003 book so it doesn’t see the further breakdown of marriage […]
