Reviewed By Lori A. Moore for Readers’ Favorite - "Inside The Cure for Divorce by Michael Sayen, there is a ton of research and explanation about what the Bible defines as marriage and says about divorce. It is so well researched that it could almost be a Bible commentary book on its own about this specific subject. Sayen takes us chronologically through the Bible, starting with an explanation of what a covenant is to showing us everything that is taught about divorce. The journey goes from studying the laws set forth in Deuteronomy, to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, to Romans and finally Corinthians to give us answers about what God wants for marriage and says about divorce. The book is well formatted and the research is documented and referenced if the reader wants to refer to the original source for more information.
The Cure For Divorce, as Sayen sees it, is staying true to the Bible and God's will and not conforming to this world. At just 53 pages, this short read is not short on content and very strongly and succinctly provides the biblical view on the subject of marriage and divorce. The title of the book is actually clever because a casual reader might pick up the book thinking it's a book about marriage counseling and how to save a bad marriage; in fact it is about God's will for marriage and will in fact save a marriage if applied and understood that divorce, for God, is rarely an option."
