Reviews - What do customers think about Woman After Gods Own Heart?
Great book for women, young or old. Jan 30, 2007
I am inclined to disagree with the reviewer who felt the book read like a "1950's Home Ec. Book." I'm in my late 20's, and while the book is not written with the modern feminist movement in mind, it is still a great book with wonderful ideas. Yes, women were created to be a "help-mate" for men, specifically, to our husbands. Women were/are instructed by the Apostle Paul to respect and to submt ourselves to our husbands, which is what Mrs. George emphasizes. As for being "physically available" for our husbands, not only is it Biblical - but in the book, Mrs. George is referring to women who withhold sex from their husbands as "punishment" for some transgression. As for the comment that the author commends a woman for dropping out of Bible study to spend time with her husband, it was taken out of context. In the book, a friend of the author had to choose between her Wednesday "morning out/ladies brunch/Bible study" and spending the day with her husband, whose day off fell on Wednesday. I commend the author for standing up for the traditional marriage relationship. No, everything she says won't work for every couple, but the main idea is to make your husband your #2 priority (after God - of course) I believe that author makes a very good argument for the relationship between a husband and wife. So often in marriages the couple grows apart and children, careers, and selfish behavior take over. I think this book is great reading, as are all of Mrs. George's books.
Ever seen a 1950s Home Economics Book? Jan 7, 2007
My wife is reading this for her Methodist Women's Group and frankly this message is appalling - but if you have a sense of humor, you'll laugh a lot. Think back to the 1950s stereotype of the wife fawning over the husband and having dinner on the table every night and serving at his beck and call and this is what this book promotes. I say it is appalling because the author promotes serving your husband over becoming closer to God during points in the book. Of course, serving your husband is like serving God in the book. If you agree, this book is for you. But, it is not for me and my wife.
Here are some parts from the book. I don't think I'm taking these out of context - if I am, please correct me because I totally missed the point. My favorite was the author telling her husband that she was available to him physically at any and all times for the rest of their lives. On page 109, she praises a friend for giving up a bible study to spend time with her husband. Another part of the book, page 104, praises a woman cleaning the house before the husband got home, and anxiously waiting for him to come home and "the party" to begin. This woman was Mel Brooks' wife. But I think the quote on page 69 sums up the book, "Realizing I am on assignment from God to help my Husband opened my eyes."
Now to be fair, there are some good messages in the book, but like the quotes above, they take an arcane view of the bible and the advice is just a little off.
