Overview

A graceful, biblical way to reclaim sanity for the home and dignity for the suffering spouse in a dysfunctional or dangerous marriage.

Thousands of conscientious believers wanting to honor the sacred vows they took before God suffer in dysfunctional, even dangerous marriages. Each and every day they must choose between the lesser of two evils: divorce without sound biblical support or a life of perpetual, unrelenting misery. Somewhere between the secular disregard for the commands of Christ and the sacred unwillingness to deal with real problems of people, there is a way.

The redemptive divorce process is designed to honor the sacredness of the union while offering practical relief for the suffering partner and tough love for the offending spouse. In some cases, it might even be the catalyst for the restoration and rebuilding of the marriage. Practical, provocative, and utterly unique, Redemptive Divorce includes a helpful guide with worksheets for implementation.

Meet the Author

Mark W. Gaither, with a Master of Theology degree from Dallas Theological Seminary, has been researching and writing Christian materials for authors and ministries for years. Redemptive Divorce is born out of the pain and trauma of divorce when his redemptive offer was refused.Mark later met and married Charissa, and now enjoys the benefits of this biblically sound, grace-oriented process: a clear conscience and a future without regrets.

    If I only knew.......

    If my spouse of 27 years had followed these guidelines as laid out in this book, I would have followed her and her lawyers instructions to the 't', before I would have hurt my family anymore. If you are truly open to God's word, and believe totally that He is true to His word, then you have to believe that divorce is the very, very last path to follow. I thank Mark Gaither for enlightening me on this subject.
