Two out of every three married men in our society commit adultery. So do half of all wives. In the face of such shocking sociological data concerning marital infidelity, this book’s bent toward grace explodes popular myths about adultery and takes on society’s most detrimental reactions to adulterers.
In this frank yet sensitive book, C. Welton Gaddy takes a harsh view of traditional religious thought that treats adultery as the unpardonable sin, and he makes a plea for viewing adultery – like any other sin – as an occasion for the healing grace of God to flow. At a time when adultery is viewed as the ultimate scandal, Gaddy points out the real scandal – that God’s forgiving, healing grace covers all.
