A substantial challenge facing the Church today is to help young married couples grow in the attitudes and skills needed to take seriously the indissolubility of their marriage. In a sense, Kelly contends, young couples must begin to realize that they have to create the indissolubility of their own marriage, if it is to exist. Kelly also suggests that the Church should develop an effective theology of pastoral care for those who have been through the trauma of marriage breakdown. While remarriage is not a panacea for everyone wounded in this way, for some it brings real healing and new life. This new edition contains a new introduction and a substantial new Appendix containing a rich collection of articles and book extracts related to divorce and remarriage in the Church. A useful and informative resource for those who minister to the married, divorced and remarried within the faith community.
