This book has been a blessing Aug 26, 2008
While I have thought that women should submit to their own husbands for a long time now, this book reminded me to watch my daily walk. It is so refreshing to see authors stand up for what the Bible actually teaches. To take it literally and not "dumb down" Scripture. Thank you, thank you for your bold, beautiful book. I hope for all of the women who have been raised by Christian feminists, this will open your eyes to the beauty and truth of Scripture. My own experience is this: In the beginning of our marriage I wanted the control. My husband was a tad passive, so I took the reigns and ran. Our marriage suffered and it wasn't until God showed me in His word, that no matter how passive my husband is, I needed to obey God and submit to my husband. Our marriage has blossomed and my husband is now actively taking leadership and I have been truly blessed. What I'm saying is that these authors know what they're talking about, because they're following God's Word. Be blessed by this book. It has truly been helpful for me.
I love this book! Aug 5, 2008
I so loved this book it was so encouraging!I even orederd it for my friend in IL! Please get this book it has many treasures in it!
about time! Jul 15, 2008
About time someone stood up for the role of motherhood in America. So many women are taught they can "have it all" by having a career and kids. Look at our country- we are losing it all. The hearts need to be turned back to our children. This book identifies some common problems and helps you to see them for what they are!
Liked the ending... Jun 26, 2008
It was sort of a disappointment in that the first part of the book was things and positions that I'm already aware of. I enjoyed the book, but coming from what would be considered and uber-conservative background it was sort of ho hum. I guess I wasn't expecting it to be about feminism. I really enjoyed their personal experiences, and identified very well with some of the attitudes that were presented in the book. Perhaps I was looking more for hints and tips to have the quiet time with God rather than abandon it. I still think that it is a necessary thing in my walk with God to have times alone with Him. And time alone with God may sometimes be the sanity check that some mothers (like me) need. If I didn't get some I'd go insane. The fact of the matter is, that even though I don't always get some every day, I keep aiming for it. It is a good book and I do recommend it. However I don't think I personally would have bought it had I known more of the content of the book.
decent writing, some good ideas May 16, 2008
I found this book to be surprisingly well-written, though not persuasively written. There were a lot of nice, pracitical bits of encouragement in here for stay-at-home mothers and wives (such as not beating yourself up if your "quiet time" is hardly quiet and involves feeding the baby, as well). However, the theology comes from a very literal standpoint on Scripture (which I do not hold with), is decidedly anti-feminist, and will certainly not be everyone's cup of tea. If you are a mother of young children and are either interested in this movement within the Church or feel up to separating the wheat from the chaff, give it a go. Personally, I feel that this approach to being a wife and mother is a narrow one and certainly not mandated by God, but I respect that there are women out there who feel differently, and this is a great resource for those women. A word to the wise, the authors do display some radical leaps in logic (for example, that in order to be a sacrificial wife and mother you must never do anything for yourself and that doing so is linked either to sin or an under-developed Christian character; that all mothers who work sacrifice their children to the will of "the state," which they portray as being nearly Communistic; and so forth), so proceed with caution.
