Item description for Upside Down Marriage by Jeff Hendley...

Just for fun let's view our marriages like a coach would view building a successful athletic team... We have to decide whether or not we are going to be spectators or players. Watching a basketball game is fun. Attending a pep rally for our favorite team is exciting. Having season tickets is nice. But this is one game we do not want to be sitting in the stands watching others play the game. We do not want to be on the sidelines cheering for our team or for our families. This is one game, one adventure we want to come away with sweat on our brow, dirt on our pants, soreness in our muscles, and a heart filled with excitement. We do not want to be left behind while other couples move ahead in their marriages. Marriage is the adventure of a lifetime. The game of all games. The sport of all sports. A healthy marriage, a healthy home is worth the price. It is worth the hard work. It is worth the sweat equity. It is one game we should not mind getting banged up and bruised. It is one game in which we do not want to miss the practices. We will become better husbands due to the hard work and the practicing.

Upside Down Marriage: for husbands to be and husbands who ar  Feb 27, 2004
Dr. Howard G. Hendricks writes in the foreword:

Upside Down Marriage

"A wife? A family? Try it-you'll like it, but if it doesn't work out, not to worry!" That's the scuttlebutt in the bars and on the streets of where young Mr. Everyman hangs out. Women are for watching and wanting and for bewitching. It's a game, a conquest, but it doesn't have to ruin your life.
Sometimes you hit it just right and, you know, there's a status to having a pretty chick on your arm--maybe even one with a rich daddy!
Marriage for men in our slam-bang marital dust-storm comes with unspoken escape clauses. Secret passage-ways out. Nobody ever says out into what, out with legal, emotional, and--worst of all--spiritual baggage too heavy to carry. Out of marriage, maybe, but wishing someone would have told you the straight story before it all happened, the real truth about joining your life with a woman.
Jeff Hendley, one of my former students, has acquitted himself well in shining his biblical searchlight on our current cloud of confusion. Man-to-man, he puts in plain English what God meant when He said it was not good that man should live alone. Without pulling any punches, he opens his heart and tells his readers what it is really like to deal with one's own male humanity. This book is not about how to understand women, but how to grab your own bearded chin and hold it in the mirror of God's relentless glare.

Since the Garden of Eden, it has not mattered what a man's theological persuasion is. God said, in effect, "You're it, man! You are responsible for My world. When I give you a wife, you are in the driver's seat, looking out for her and for your children, and your grandchildren. You are the head of your family by My decree." Through the centuries we have managed to distort and up-end this divine intention for husbands.
Here is a down-to-earth, straight-out-of scripture reminder that, although men will be men, men can be extraordinary models of virtue and integrity.
Real men, married and wannabes, need to grab this critical inside scoop.
