Reviews - What do customers think about Ransom of Love (Mail Order Bride)?
a few good tips.. Aug 15, 2008
A few pearls, but not a lot of substance to this little set. I think the advice on these tapes is more geared towards old fashioned couples. As a woman, I had a hard time relating to much of what the author was saying about women. It seemed like he was talking more about my grandmother and what might tug at her heartstrings. Well, a lot has changed since then.
Great if you do not have the time to read the book Sep 17, 2002
His thoughts are good and well presented. You will be challenged by what you are asked to do. But the outcome will be well worth the efforts. Let's face it gentlemen we need to as the Bible teaches die to self and become a servant leader to our wives...The tapes do not have all that the book has but they are still good.
A Christian Perspective Jun 14, 2000
The premise of this book is that if you want a successful marriage, you should love your wife as Christ loved the church. As the author points out on page 233, "If we nourish and cherish [our wives] as the Bible tells us to, they grow and blossom and bloom and get perfume all over us. They radiate back to us exactly what we are giving them. If you see a happy wife, you can assume the husband is doing a good job of cherishing her. If you see a sad wife, you can bet the husband's priorites are out of whack and he is failing to provide the nurture she needs." My daughter is getting married this summer, and I intend to give the bride and groom two books. One will be Gary Chapman's "The Five Love Languages" which should be read by both. The other will be this one, which is intended for the husband. Unlike the first reviewer, I found this book to be a very worthwhile read, and I probably will also give copies to the husbands of a number of couples I know who are struggling in their marriage. Whether you need to develop a new approach to relating to your wife or would just like to reinforce the good habits you already have, I think you will find this book of value.
Disappointment Mar 9, 2000
Mr. Snyder has written in a style that includes sarcasm and exageration. This is aimed to be humor, but I find makes it difficult to perceive what the true point really is. He includes many personal experiences that do not correlate his main points and seem often foolish.
