This is a guest post from Dr. Sandra Glahn. Dr. Glahn is a professor at Dallas Theological Seminary and the author or coauthor of more than twenty books. Dr. Glahn adapted this post from her book Chai with Malachi (AMG). You can read her blog here. I think you will find her post very thought-provoking!
Often when we talk about a biblical view of divorce, we quote Malachi: “God hates divorce” (2:16). And it’s true. He does. But does that mean God hates the actions of anyone who initiates a legal divorce?
