Very worthwhile if taken with a grain of salt Mar 31, 1999
I appreciated almost all of what was offered, especially from a Christian perspective. However, I was getting tired of the man playing the chump in most of the anecdotes. Maybe that is how they all fell, but in the interest of a more level balance they could have swapped the genders occasionally without us being any the wiser.
