Blake wrote the Marriage of Heaven and Hell

Blake wrote the Marriage of Heaven and Hell. If I have written of their Divorce, this is not because I think myself a fit antagonist for so great a genius, nor even because I feel at all sure that I know what he meant. But in some sense or other the attempt to make that marriage is perennial. I believe, to be sure, that any man who reaches Heaven will find that what he abandoned (even in plucking out his right eye) has not been lost: that the kernel of what he was really seeking even in his most depraved wishes will be there, beyond expectation, waiting for him in ‘the High Countries’.

Grace and Divorce, written by noted author and psychotherapist, Dr. Les Carter, provides sound theological thinking on divorce and wise and compassionate suggestions for reframing and deepening our understanding of this difficult and controversial topic. Using stories from his practice as a therapist, Dr. Carter offers healing to both those who divorce and those who know and love them. He explains that Jesus never intended us to be so fixed about right and wrong and so judgmental that we lose the ability to love those who do not meet His perfect standards. With kindness and love, he shows that the wonderful gift of God’s grace is the best way to respond to people facing this trying life challenge.

Dikus
Christians who are struggling with divorce should read this book. For when we are weak, we are made strong if we reach out to God. He loves us in spite of us falling short of perfection. The author's experience counseling divorcees will help Christian divorces make wiser choices, find peace, and move forward.
Divorce humbles Christians, because failure is so public. Some Christians judge those who stumble in public, because they forget that not one of us is perfect before God. Those who judge forget John 3:16 -17. We all need to strive to speak truth with love and forgiveness, and seek justice tempered with mercy.

I discovered this title on-line and recommended it sight unseen to a person trying to help a fractured family. The report back from this family friend is that the book made the rounds of family members and resulted in a significant reduction in the "anger level" in that family system. Both the separated spouses and their children have been able to treat each other with a degree of grace (including tenderness and respect) that wasn't there before. This does not mean immediate relational healing, but steps toward treating each other in a more Christ-like way. Needless to say, I will be recommending this book to others.

My wife and I have facilitated divorce recovery groups 12 times in the last 6 years. This is THE book we hand out to those concerned about their divorce from a Christian perspective. Jesus was never about judgemental rule making and neither is this book.

Dr. Carter provides great encouragement for those of us that are divorced by reminding us that God's grace in there for us, too - just like it is everyone else. Sometimes, in the midst of the turmoil, it is hard to remember that and, unfortunately, it is ofter hard for others to remember that about the divorced folks as well. This is a great book to encourage the divorced and would also be a great book for a pastoral staff member to read.

This book was amazing and I would recommend it to anyone going through a divorce. I personally was struggling with my decision because I was confused what that meant for my relationship with Christ, but after reading this book I feel comfortable and I feel as though all my questions have been answered and I was able to come to terms with my decision.

I read this book to help me deal with my marital separation and found the book to be very uplifting. The best part about this book though is NOT necessarily the marital aspect. This book is an AMAZING book about God's Grace and how we can and should demonstrate it to those around us. I recommend this book as a book about Grace alone regardless of the status of your relationship. Truly a must read!
