Product description

In all three Abrahamic faiths, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, marriage is part of God's plan for humanity, as illustrated in the Hebrew Scriptures, the New Testament, and the Koran as well as the religious literature of these three traditions. It is viewed as a sacred bond as well as a means to personal fulfilment. It is more than a legal contract, rather an institution with cosmic significance, legitimized through divine authority.

In Judaism, Christianity and Islam, the purpose of marriage is to build a home, create a family and thereby perpetuate society. Yet, despite the similarity of perception in the great monotheistic faiths, there are important differences.

In this book three scholars outline sex law, betrothal and marriage, family life and the understanding of divorce in these traditions and discuss the differences between them in a student-friendly and accessible way.

Product Reviews

An interesting book, which deals not just with sex law, marriage, family life, and divorce, but also such issues as polygamy, intermarriage, and divorce. Highly informative, at times it is also provocative, when such issues are raised such as 'Are Christian marriages more stable' or should we 'celebrate' divorce. -- Ministry Today, Sept-Dec 2015
