Not The Full Counsel of God Jan 30, 2007
Though much of Nair's books contain good scriptural truth, he does not "declare unto you all the counsel of God." I have attended his seminar and his counsel is one-sided and his viewpoint of women is condescending, unrealistic, and unBiblical.
1. By implication, Ken teaches the only reason wives sin is because their husbands are not being Christlike.
2. In his books and presentations, Ken freely applies Scripture to the responsibilities of husbands, but does not apply them to wives or even address their Biblical responsibilities except to teach the only job a wife has is to berate the husband when he is not being Christlike.
3. Ken condemns husbands for their sins, but allows wives to freely indulge in those sins:
Ken says that women "are the historians of the family and always remember past offenses." Even though in 1 Corinthians 13:5 reliable translations tell us that true love does not keep a record of wrongs, Ken encourages wives to do the exact opposite.
Ken says, "outbursts of anger are the only way women can get men to listen," and yet, Ken encourages such anger ignoring James 1:20 and Ephesians 4:31-32 that such behavior is sin.
One walks away from Ken's books and seminars wondering if women are truly capable of sin unless their wayward husbands drive them to it.
4. Worse of all, Ken is guilty of only quoting partial verses. 1 Peter 3:7 says, "You husbands likewise, live with your wives in an understanding way, *as with a weaker vessel, since she is a woman; and grant her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.* The section between the asterisks is omitted from Ken's workbooks and presentations changing the emphasis of the verse. This is not the only verse Ken only partially quotes.
5. Ken knows he stands on shaky ground and manipulates those who question him by accusing them of being carnal and "fleshly."
The bottom line is that Ken is correct when he instructs Christian husbands "ought to love their wives as their own bodies." However, he does everybody a grave disservice when he fails to instruct a wife to "respect her husband."
Those struggling in dysfunctional marriages will do better with certified Christen marriage counselors or the writings of James Dobson or other qualified Christian counselors, but I cannot with clear conscience recommend Ken's books and his expensive seminar and his very costly, three-year-long discipleship course.
The Best Book on Marriage We Have Ever Read Jan 24, 2007
We thought that our books on marriage were the best.. (smile) until we read this book by "the master." Ken Nair further opened our eyes to the astounding but largely unknown keys to an Outrageously Happy Marriage that God had been teaching us for the last 12 years. Buy this book.. and then buy ours! This one two three punch combination will take ANY marriage from rags to riches. Our books are titled,
"The Man of Her Dreams/The Woman of His!" and
"The Man of Her Dreams/The Woman of His! Part 2: Livin' It and Lovin'It!"
Both books are available here on this site.

I had know idea Jan 15, 2007
Reading this book opened my eyes. I thought I was doing well after more the 20 years of marriage; but I was still missing several important views. This is a must read for every husband and husband to be.
If You Are Serious.... Oct 6, 2006
If you are serious about becoming Christlike, read this book. If you are content with mediocre Christianity, this book is not for you.
Discovering the Mind of a Woman Apr 4, 2006
The book is not accurate. It doesn't address real marriage problems but only looks at men. Women have no responsiblity and I have seen this ruin marriages. The authors wife is the prime promoter. The book is good for men to help them understand women but lacks real marriage substance to have a lasting marriage according to the word of God.
