about

In this simple yet profound study, Colin Hamer shows the reader that the Bible is the dramatic story of two marriages and two divorces. God's relationship with humanity from the Garden of Eden to the end of time mirrors a marriage relationship, and the gospel is an offer by the Bridegroom Messiah of a final reconciliation and a new marriage for all those who come to the marriage supper of the Lamb. Only once we understand these biblical references to God's own marriage to his people can we understand New Testament teaching about human marriage, divorce, and remarriage.

God's Divorce unpacks, in easy to follow terms, the findings of Colin Hamer's widely acclaimed and ground-breaking PhD, Marital Imagery in the Bible (Apostolos, 2015), which re-examined the New Testament's teaching on divorce and remarriage in light of recently discovered documents from New Testament times. The result is an understanding that has eluded the church since early post-apostolic times.

Commendations of Hamer's work

'Hamer's appeal to marital imagery throughout Scripture and how it informs our understanding of the New Testament's teaching on divorce and remarriage is brilliant.' - William A. Heth, Professor of Greek and New Testament, Taylor University

'The best and most thorough treatment of this topic now available ...'

- Craig L. Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of New testament, Denver Seminary
