God Will Never Divorce You! by Edgar Baez, JD is an insightful and illuminating read. As a divorce lawyer, Baez has seen first-hand the devastating effects of divorce both on the marriage partners and on the children involved. In this brief and well-crafted book, he delves into marriage as fashioned by God. Baez reveals the creation of marriage as a mirror of God’s love for mankind. He discusses the challenges experienced by couples from issues surrounding intimacy, to the fight for control and the deception that the devil has created to destroy the family unit. Best of all, he shows how, through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we can succeed in marriage.
I liked that the author shares his mistakes and how, through his identity in Jesus, he has been able to change himself and therefore he is now able to love and accept his wife as she is. The tone of the book also does not come off as arrogant or judgemental, rather, the author adopts a loving attitude towards those struggling in marriage. He offers sound advice that is applicable for everyone willing to learn the concept of marriage from a Christian perspective.
It is not every day that you find a divorce lawyer writing about how marriage can be fortified. It almost sounds contradictory but after reading the book, I came to appreciate how the author’s experiences both in his professional work and personal life have provided a great learning platform. The information he has acquired along the way is now shared in this book. One important lesson discussed in the book is how human beings try to “help” God. We replace His plan for our lives with what we think will be befitting for us. The modern world also exalts personal happiness over patience and love for others. These and many other similar factors have led to the destruction of many marriage unions.
I also liked the book’s length. The discussions are succinct and to the point. The author does not over complicate his explanations and keeps his tone conversational. He designs the book in well-structured chapters that contain content which anyone can easily grasp. He also includes Biblical scriptures to back his explanations.
Probably the inclusion of more personal accounts would have made the book even more captivating. Still, God Will Never Divorce You! by Edgar Baez, JD is a delightful and informative read that will prove useful to all readers interested in learning about marriage from a Christian perspective. I rate it 4 out of 4 stars.
