I first came face to face with the traditional theory on divorce and remarriage way back in 1960 when I was a young minister in the early part of my career. The doctrine brought trouble of an unusual kind into my ministry, forcing me to deal with it. It appeared that the theory had no Biblical foundation, but our brotherhood had accepted it everywhere I looked. It therefore became necessary to search out the facts.
But where could I begin my investigation? Almost no one had written on the subject, and most of the writings I did find supported the traditional view. I would have loved to have been able to get my hands on a book like this one by Robert Waters, which lays out just about every argument that has been put forth on the issue. But, as I said, we had no such material fifty years ago and I was alone to do my research.
I am glad that now the situation is better because many brethren are speaking out regarding divorce and subsequent marriage in books, articles, and sermons. That is where this book will be helpful. Robert and I have some differences on how to approach a point, but we do not differ on conclusions. We come out at the same place. We find that the traditional view is a human theory.
Near the end of the book Robert quotes Foy Wallace Jr., who rightly said that although Jesus condemned marriage breaking, He did NOT prescribe a "disciplinary procedure" and thus we cannot make one without human legislation. Robert and I both respect God's stated will that each person have a mate. Robert has experienced the frustration of trying to find the truth in the confused circumstances surrounding this subject. He has done a lot of research to get where he is, and he shares that in this book, cutting a wide swath so the reader will be able to look at good information and clear treatment of every point.
It is important that we survey the whole field and study this subject fully from the standpoint of what the Bible says about it. Many people are faced with decisions on this topic, and their conclusions have eternal consequences. They need some Bible answers. As Waters points out, God placed great importance on the role of marriage in preventing fornication. Forbidding marriage flies in the face of the need for everyone to have a mate. Those who insist on the breakup of marriages should especially stop and look this matter over again.
I welcome this book by Robert Waters. It is my prayer that God will bless the material that is put forth here to the intended purpose of God to give blessings to those who follow His will.

“Getting started right can make or break a newcomer’s entry into any sport. Robert Waters’ book, DEER HUNTING – WHITE TAIL HUNTING BASICS and MORE is just that, the basics, plus some. It deals with the three major types of harvesting tools: modern rifles, muzzle loaders, and archery tackle, plus hunting methods, the nature of the while-tail, its habitat and habits, plus, as promised, more. More is in the nature of windchill factors, advice about “staying found,” deer populations, a checklist for important hunting gear, proper clothing for the whiltetail hunter, and -- you guessed it -- more, such as how to make a tree stand, dryfiring for practice, sighting in properly, as well as important information of safety, not only in the treestand, but a gun safety as well. Waters is a sportsman. His disdain for poacher and unfair play stand out, which is vital to teaching new-comers not only the hows and whys of whitetail hunting, but the admirable way to go about it. Yes, getting started right is important, and that’s what this book is about.” -- Sam Fadala
