Edward Mrkvicka is a lifelong Christian, award-winning author, lay minister and counselor. He is devoted to saving families from the ravages of adultery, and the divorce that almost always follows. Most important, he is devoted to the innocent children who are damaged by the selfish acts of their parents who give in to temptation.
Mrkvicka believes the only hope for betraying adulterers is the Word of God. This is what he tries to do with his books and counseling – ensure that as many as possible know what a true evil adultery is, and that they know it before-the-fact, as it is far easier to avoid the evil than to get back once the line has been crossed.
His efforts on behalf of families, understanding adultery, and the devastating effect of divorce on children has earned him a United States Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition.
He started writing professionally in 1980.

As a Christian non-fiction writer, this question is crucial to being able to bring the Word of God to others through my books.
It is important to understand that what an author has to say is basically meaningless when compared to the wisdom contained in Scripture – and that’s where things often go wrong. Some authors allow themselves the arrogance to believe that their opinion(s) are important, while I believe a Christian writer’s job is to humbly reveal the importance of God and His Word.
With that in mind, hone in on a topic and then cull the Bible for every verse germane to that subject. Doing so will give you a foundation you can build on. This can be accomplished by using a reference Bible (I use the Thompson Chain-Reference Bible). Researching your subject matter in-depth spiritually will often give you a whole new approach than you may have had on day one. Don’t make the Bible fit your writing needs, make your writing in concert with the Bible.
There is probably no bigger error a writer can make when incorporating the Bible in a book than failing to read/understand the Bible in context. So many single verses of Scripture cannot be understood without reading companion verses. This truth can lead both author and reader astray. This is not an insignificant aside. If an author isn’t careful, careless use of the Bible will lead to a writing disaster. Conversely, faithful application will almost always significantly advance and improve your work.

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.
Nothing could be clearer. Unrepentant adulterers will not spend
eternity in heaven.
So if you’re thinking about committing adultery, don’t. The cost
to everyone, especially you, is just too high. Adultery is more than physical
lust or an innocent affair and/or choosing another person
over one’s spouse. Adultery is choosing Satan over Jesus, death over
life, and hell over heaven. But God does not condemn us to that
fate. Instead, if we will follow the step-by-step instructions culled
from the Bible and offered in this book, He forgives us so we may
be saved. Of course, as with all things God asks of His children,
our obedience is rewarded far beyond what we deserve: “Then shall
the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my
Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of
the world” (Matthew 25:34).
If you’re in an adulterous relationship, end it. Now. As with all
sin, adulterers must first admit it and then quit it. Thank God we
can be forgiven, but only if we repent and make right that which we
have made wrong.
Lastly, no matter how far removed we are from the Light of the
Lord, we must never forget the life-affirming words of Jesus in Luke
15:7. “I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over on sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.”
