In this simple yet profound study, Colin Hamer shows the reader that the Bible is the dramatic story of two marriages and two divorces. 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. Available 31st May 2017.
