“(Nashville, Tennessee) On December 6, 2021, Randall House and authors will release Husband of One Wife: An Exegesis.
About the book: Husband of One Wife: An Exegesis provides an in-depth examination of a key biblical qualification for pastor—marital status—and discusses contrasting views and interpretations of various qualifications listed in 1 Timothy 3:1-7, with particular attention to how divorce impacts one’s ability to serve in the role of minister. Addresses the questions: Is the Divorced Minister Permanently Disqualified From Pastoral Ministry?, Must the Local Church Pastor Be Married?, Is “Husband of One Wife” More Important Than the Other Pastoral Requirements…or Do They Possess Equal Weight?, Is Polygamy Part of the Equation?, and Can A Divorced Pastor Lead in Ministry Again?
Features include: Multiple authors from a wide range of backgrounds and ministry philosophies. In-depth examination of scriptural qualifications related to the pastor’s marital status. Contrasting views and interpretations.
