To get your very own personal copy of my book Down, But Not Out (ISBN -- 1-4137-8993-5), or to order several copies for friends, family, members of your congregation or the church library, it may be ordered through your local bookstore, or on, or on your Kindle device.

"Down, But Not Out is different from many of the current works on divorce and remarriage. It is not a rehash of traditional teaching, but a fresh new look at the entirety of biblical doctrine on this vital subject. Although scholarly, it is easy to read and understand. Biblical truths are illustrated with actual case histories, thereby allowing the reader to easily see how the principles are applied to daily living. This is not a book of theology designed to titillate the mind, but a book of hope designed to facilitate healing for those who are down, but not yet out. Another book on divorce and remarriage? Yes! And this one we all need to read and study. The research is extensive and excellent. It is a rich source of information and should be a prominent part of every Christian's library." --- Olan Hicks, author/lecturer

A minister from California, after reading this book, wrote the following review and placed it on the Publisher's web site: "This is THE BEST book available on the very controversial and very divisive issue of divorce and remarriage. Mr. Maxey is a very intelligent, highly intellectual Christian; at the same time he is very humble. One of the many things that I really like about this book is that Mr. Maxey approaches the subject matter and presents it in a very scholarly, detailed, exhaustive manner. A most admirable aspect of this book's biblically exhaustive presentation is that it is completely without personal slant or bias. As a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I whole-heartedly recommend this book to anyone and everyone that encounters this very controversial and, many times, hotly debated issue."

It is my hope and prayer that you will be edified and encouraged by this study, and that you will freely and widely recommend it to those you know who may need to experience the loving, healing touch of God's grace due to the trauma of marital difficulties. It is also good "preventive medicine" for those who seek to understand our Creator's divine design -- His IDEAL -- for marriage, and who desire to strengthen their own covenant relationships with their spouses. Please keep this book in your prayers that it may touch many people's hearts and lives!
