The Divorce Dilemma

2:00 pm Uncategorized

I have posted a five and one-half page book review of the Divorce Dilemma by James Woodroof.  This book was published in 1977.  The author states that the main purpose of the book is to make application of the divine law on divorce from the viewpoint of the circumstances of the first century.  The book misses the mark.  The author does not thoroughly examine the primary divorce legislation in the New Testament.  There is very little exegetical work done on the specific passages that touch on this important subject.  The author contradicts himself several times.  He makes Paul contradict Jesus.  He makes Paul countermand Jesus.  He attempts to establish his case on pure speculation and yet feels very confident in doing this.  You’re going to want to read this review.  It is located under Book Reviews on this blog.
