A great book! Sep 18, 2006
This book and its companion book for wives are really great books. They are easy to read and are must reads for all husbands, wives and those considering marriage. If we all followed the advice in these books we would have loving, satisfying and successful marriages. I've bought several copies and have given them out to friends. As far as I can see the Biblical principles are sound too.
Falls Short Nov 19, 2005
This book although not questioning the good intentions of the author falls short on Biblical principles for marriage. It's basically her experiences in her marriage poured out on the book. If you are searching for a book with scriptural base for marriage and the role and submission of us men, this is not it. This book is based on one woman experiences, while all not woman and marriages are alike, God is always the same and does not change, so Bible principles should be look for, not experiences of a godly woman to help a whole different women and marriage situations. The book is short on pages and scriptural basics. Rather I recommend the book "Every Man's Marriage" from the everyman series, it gives a greater Biblical view of men's role in marriage, to love our wife like Christ loved and loves the Church, understanding how mutual submission, a being a bondservant to your wife really makes your marriage gloom.
Also I would recommend a great book by the late pastor Adrian Rogers, Ten Secrets for A Successful Family, if you want scriptural guides to lead your marriage, children and family life this is it. With the passion and firmness that characterized pastor Rogers in his sermons, books and life. God Bless.
Get's to the point Dec 12, 2004
Considering that most men would not be very receptive to the idea of reading a marriage help book, I would recommend this book if for no other reason, it get's to the point quickly.
Another good point to this book "considering the target audience" is that each chapter is brief and succinct. Most people will be able to get through this in a week, others who really don't like to read about these subjects can take a month and only have to read for a brief 5 to 10 minutes.
The lessons are practical enough to not overwhelm the alpha male. I would recommend this book as a gift for the married male or for a friend in need.
