Infidelity has been a destructive force to the institution of marriage. Many husbands and wives find themselves in the middle of extramarital affairsnot because they want to destroy their marriages, not because they dont love their spouses, and not because they are inherently evil. In many cases, persons admitting to infidelity have no explicable reason to offer for examination; they are genuinely regretful of the behavior and the hurt it causes, yet they may find themselves in the same situation over and over again. In The Monogamy Mystery, author and bishop John I. Cline explains from a biblical perspective how to prevent infidelity going forward and how to survive infidelity in marriage. He shows how when addressing the root of the problems in marriages, a question consistently resonates: Were we really designed to be monogamous? With a skillful biblical, sociological, and spiritual analysis, Bishop Cline elucidates the philosophical and theological import of the institution of marriage, and the interdisciplinary dialogue he offers through biblical analysis elicits a relevant psychological-theological effect that has the power to transform the mind! Those who seek to have their lives guided and directed by godly principlesand who hope to live the abundant life that Jesus promised by seeking greater depths and growth in their relational liveswill find The Monogamy Mystery to be a bastion and refuge of life, peace, and rest. And by understanding the roots of infidelity and how to conquer it, they will enjoy more fulfilling lives. n
