Full Restoration

Overview

Full Restoration is not just another book about divorce. It is unique in that it appeals to the church to see men differently who have sinned by divorce in their past. It is a book to set men free who are hurting, post-confession and repentance, to see that they can be used in ministry again.

Overview

Full Restoration is not just another book about divorce. It is unique in that it appeals to the church to see men differently who have sinned by divorce in their past. It is a book to set men free who are hurting, post-confession and repentance, to see that they can be used in ministry again.
Full Restoration challenges the traditional interpretation of 1 Timothy 3:2 suggesting that a man who has sinned by divorce in his past is not qualified for ministry. While this goes against the voice and reason of all of Scripture, it also violates the intention and grammar of 1 Timothy 3:2. The pastoral aspirant is to be one who is a "one woman kind of man". It emphasizes this man's present character, not his past sin.
There is not a place in the Bible that says men who have sinned in their past lose their giftedness and even with confession and repentance cannot be effective in ministry again. God's forgiveness and restoration is complete. Even Jesus told Peter after his denial with cursing, "Feed my sheep"!
May this book help counselors, pastors and church leaders to help men, truly called of God, back to effective places of ministry. May the church see its need to discontinue seeing these precious forgiven and gifted saints as second class citizens...but restored persons who will feed Jesus' sheep!

    Conservative, even though it challenges traditional views

    This is an excellent book to help understand the process of helping those who need restoration! It is pro-marriage, and speaks to the issue of divorce's destructiveness. It is a helpful tool for counselors, but also a good read for every Christian

    This Book Supports The Biblical View of Marriage and Divorce

    Full Restoration does not diminish the Biblical Position of the permanency of marriage and the sinfulness of divorce, rather it supports it. Full Restoration is a book about one Pastor's journey away from God, and finding God's full restoration. It was through family, friends, pastors and associates who showed the grace of God that made the difference in this author's life. That God is not finished with us though we sin in the past is part of the message of this book. It is for hurting Christians who have confessed, and have been restored, who need to get back on the road again of service to the King. Grace is the thread through this book. It is a must read for any Christian who has hurt through the process of divorce. Excellent for pastors, teachers and counselors as well. A valuable resource chapter has been included.

    Full Restoration

    This is a great title as it speaks to the Christian community's need to give more attention to a biblical truth- full restoration! Good choice of title, as people need to know that any past sin, including divorce, can be completely forgiven!

    Full Restoration

    Is very helpful to Christians who have divorced. It is good to know that the divorced are not 'second class citizens' in the church as often characterized. An easy read, excellent resources.

    Full Restoration

    This is an excellent book to help hurting pastors. Not only Christians who have divorced, but all Christians need to know that when God restores them, He does it fully. A great read for only $17.50
