What is the place of marriage in the wide setting of God’s purpose for the whole of creation? In marriage we are tapping into the revealed secret of God’s purpose for the whole universe and we are giving very practical expression to it. What is marriage and what is it for? What is the place in marriage of sexual attraction and appreciation of each other between a man and a woman? Is there a rightful ordering of relationships in marriage? How sustainable is marriage in the ‘real’ world of today? What of marriage breakdown, and the alternative reconstituting of relationships? What about family life and bringing up children?

In this groundbreaking book, Arnold, a pastor for almost forty years, addresses the pain resulting from broken relationships and the misuse of sexual intimacy. He provides fresh biblical insights into critical issues including the sacredness of sex, the struggle against temptation, the decision to remain single or to marry, child rearing, homosexuality, divorce and remarriage. Sex, God, and Marriage offers healing to anyone who has known discouragement or guilt – and hope to anyone who is willing to take a bold new look at a topic of universal interest and concern.

The New Testament standard for marriage is far higher than what is commonly taught and practiced in many churches. If we understand clearly what constitutes marriage and what dissolves marriage, we will have a basis for understanding all other questions regarding marriage. Included is a session dealing with questions commonly asked, as well as a session on a proper New Testament approach to polygamy.

This is a thorough bible study about divorce and remarriage, showing when it is a sin, and when it isn’t. The importance of this study can be measured by the rapid rise in the divorce and remarriage rate in many countries during the last century, to such a degree that some countries now average more than one divorce for every two marriages, and it is still increasing.
