Broken Vows: Divorce and the Goodness of God (Cruciform Press, 2013)

John Greco had completed his seminary preparation and was about to take his dream job in the ministry. Life as he knew it shattered when his wife announced her unrepentant adultery and her resolve to get a divorce.

Instead of relocating with his wife for his new ministry position, he headed back to his home state without a marriage and without a job. Pain, grief and plenty of questions filled his heart and mind.

In the days to follow, he learned afresh the goodness of God demonstrated in the gospel of Christ. He eventually found his identity in Christ rather than in his marital status or in his occupation.

Most of us will know people who have experienced the marital pain of divorce if we have not not experienced it ourselves. This book offers the only real hope for this and every anguish imaginable.
