Divorced Families – Meeting the Challenge of Divorce and Remarriage
What does the Bible say about divorce and remarriage after divorce? Is it acceptable for a Christian to divorce his/her spouse, or remarry after divorce, under what biblical grounds? What is the position of the church concerning issues of divorce and remarriage? What is the response of lay Christians to the position of the church? These are some of the questions that greatly concern this book. Some scholars (Wenham, Heth, and Keener) have also embarked in a discussion about such questions. They have mostly searched for the meaning that the text on divorce in the gospel of Matthew had to offer, and the how to apply that meaning to the current church. This book contributes to this ongoing discussion. Instead of looking only at the meaning of the text in the gospel of Mark and applying it to the current church, the book analyzes the voices of some people from the church in Tanzania so as to open up a possibility for a dialogue between the text and its context and the current readers and their context. Hence, the book can be useful to both scholars and students as a textbook in classes or any group discussions about the way divorce and remarriage texts can be used in current churches

For many Christians it is a forgone conclusion that there are only two reasons, or exceptions, that the Bible allows for divorce; desertion and adultery. A careful study of scripture, as well as how the church has understood divorce throughout its history, reveals that may not be the case. By approaching the Bible as a unified whole on the issue of divorce, as well as considering the application of the Bible's teaching on divorce throughout church history, Dr. Bordow challenges the traditional view of the two exceptions. Dr. Bordow also offers a model for counseling troubled marriages based on the Scriptures and many years of pastoral experience.
From earliest years, in both England and Denmark and until around the 18th and 19th centuries, getting married was a quite uncomplicated affair, in which the law did not involve itself too much; an individual was free to ''marry'' merely by the act of sexual intercourse with their partner. Getting a divorce, on the other hand, was a completely different, highly controversial and complicated affair as the Christian idea of marriage as an indissoluble life-long union prevailed. In the course of time, however, divorce has become an available legal remedy in both countries - first with the passing of the English Matrimonial Causes Act in 1857 and later on with the Danish Marriage Act in 1922. Since then, the rules on divorce matters have developed continuously and undergone significant changes in both countries. Still, despite this relatively similar development, closer inspection has revealed that a number of substantive differences between the divorce law in the two countries still exist. Based on that, the purpose of this study is not only to establish the existing differences, but indeed also to investigate why they exist.
