A new book with the title: ‘Marriage Without Tears’, written by a former banker, Apostle (Dr.) Stephen Okonkwor Nwawolo was launched on the Sunday, 1st September, 2019 at Jesus Saves Church, 25 Yakubu Street, Ikosi, Ketu, Lagos State.
The launch of the 218-page book segmented into 27 Chapters, attracted people from all walks of life.
Speaking on the unveiling in Lagos, the author, Dr Nwawolo said the book is written to the glory of God and for the continuous benefit of everyone that would engage in mar-riage in a life time in accordance with the will of God.
According to him, ‘Marriage Without Tears’ is to give useful guidance to what marriage should be as marriage is the first institution ordained by God, which should be hal-lowed, honoured and enjoyed in line with God’s principles and purposes for setting it up.
“It is a love covenant binding two unrelated opposite gender (male and female) with God at the centre”, the author said.
Dr Nwawolo who is also a senior minister in Jesus Saves Church decried the situation whereby some marriages in most parts of our societies have been bewildered with so many challenges, full of sorrow and tears.
Some of such marriages, he said, have caused so much pain and damages as a result of irreconcilable differences leading to constant hatred, misunderstandings, black-mails, quarrels, fights, domestic violence, infidelity, frustrations, psychological/spiritual traumas, litigations, break-ups, and even death occasionally.
In order to put an end to many of these challenges and factors as well as wipe away resulting tears, Dr Nwawolo said that the book has become necessary so as to provide much guidance, perceived questions and answers to address some likely burning is-sues resulting to these ugly experiences in marriages.
