I served for many years as an elder of a Grace Baptist Church in the UK. In July 2015 I was awarded a PhD by the University of Chester for the thesis: Marital Imagery in the Bible: An Exploration of Genesis 2:24 and its Significance for the Understanding of New Testament Divorce and Remarriage Teaching which has been published by Apostolos. My examiners were Dr David Instone-Brewer of Tyndale House and Professor David Clough of the University of Chester.
Marital Imagery in the Bible
An Exploration of Genesis 2:24 and its Significance for the Understanding of New Testament Divorce and Remarriage Teaching
Foreword by William A. Heth
‘Amazing . . . brilliant.’
William A. Heth, Professor of Greek and New Testament Taylor University, Upland, IN
‘The best and most thorough treatment of this topic now available.’
Craig L. Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary
‘Hamer’s detailed analysis using modern metaphor theory arrives at a valuable conclusion.’
Dr David Instone-Brewer, Senior Research Fellow, Tyndale House, Cambridge
‘This is a remarkable study. Hamer’s analysis of Genesis 2:24 both in its original context, and of its employment in the New Testament, is insightful, and as far as I am aware, unique in biblical scholarship.’
Rev Trevor Baker, Albania Evangelical Mission
