‘No Innocent Affair’ by celebrated counselor Edward Mrkvicka is a persuasive, no-holds-barred look at adultery in American culture. Alleging that marital infidelity is leading to the destruction of the American family, Mrkvicka offers compelling arguments against committing adultery, and invites readers to examine their own choices through the eyes of God.
Marengo, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/22/2014 -- Adultery is a hot topic these days. From movies, to music, literature and TV, it seems that everyone is talking about fidelity – or lack thereof – within the covenant of marriage.
To Edward Mrkvicka, author of new book, ‘No Innocent Affair’, the dialogue about adultery needs to change, and quickly.
“There’s this mantra of ‘well, if it feels good, do it’, which is highly problematic,” says Mrkvicka. “It doesn’t matter which way you look at it – infidelity is clearly wrong, both from Biblical and Secular perspectives.”
‘No Innocent Affair’ is Mrkvicka’s answer to an issue that he believes has ramifications far beyond simply a broken marriage or two. Detailing how adultery costs lives and hurts any person involved, especially innocent children, Mrkvicka weaves passages of scripture into a text that has already steered hundreds of people away from the damaging choice to be untrue to their husband or wife.
'Thou shalt not commit adultery' (Exodus 20:14). Have you found yourself contemplating committing adultery? Are you currently in an adulterous relationship? Have you been affected by an act of adultery? If you answered yes to any of these questions, No Innocent Affair: Making Right the Wrong of Adultery is the tool you need. An avid student of the Word, Ed Mrkvicka addresses the fact that adultery is one of the main contributors to the destruction of the American family and seeks to reverse this terrifying statistic. Mrkvicka posits that few who engage in adulterous relationships realize the enormity of the cost of infidelity, both to themselves and innocent people in their lives. Beginning by comparing God's view of adultery to society's view, No Innocent Affair explains in frank yet loving terms that unrepentant adultery is more than just an innocent affair. It is choosing Satan over Jesus and death over life. Mrkvicka desires to lead adulterers to repentance and eternal life with Jesus Christ. Most importantly, No Innocent Affair takes you on a step-by-step biblical progression that leads to the sin of adultery being forgiven and salvation reclaimed. Infidelity is no easy subject to discuss, but it is one that must be addressed. Follow along on this exploration of the consequences and ways out of adultery.
As the author explains, he felt a sense of urgency while writing the book. “The epidemic in character that manifests itself in infidelity has reached critical mass. It has to stop now,” says Mrkvicka.
Continuing: “I want to expose the lies about adultery and replace them with the proven Word of God, as well as providing secular statistics to dissuade potential adulterers. Further, I want to show those who have strayed from their marriages that there is a way to restore the relationship with their family and God. Repentance is vital.”
Since its release, the book has garnered rave reviews.
“I strongly encourage all believers to read this scripturally sound book and commit to share its contents with those we love. By God's Grace, I intend to use this as the basis of a class on the subject of infidelity in marriage. Undoubtedly a 5 star rating!” wrote Grace Giver.
Shannon Sullivan called the book ‘a must read’ and wrote: “’No Innocent Affair’ will touch you to your core. It is straight forward and to the point. Based entirely on the Word of God, you will understand the true meaning and consequences of adultery. Your soul is too important to take this subject lightly. You will be inspired by the honesty and desire of the author to see the error of your ways and the guidance to get back on the right path.”
