Overview Describes how misogynistic relationships begin, explains how both husbands and wives contribute to the problem, and suggests ways the Church can help
Publishers Description Christian Men Who Hate Women is a long-needed book about hurting relationships in Christian marriage -- the kind of marriage in which Christian women love men who hate them. Dr. Margaret Josephson Rinck stresses that since the subject of abuse 'seems to be such a taboo in the Christian community, ' it's necessary for us all to become aware of our own views concerning abuse. Rinck examines in detail - how women-hating relationships begin - what happens in these relationships - how both parties contribute to the problem - the role of the church in such a relationship -- She writes that 'we need to set women -- and men -- free from the terrible bondage that entraps them in patterns of misogynistic behavior and relationships.' Nor should the blame be exclusively assigned to the 'bad guy' in the relationship, she points out, because 'both the man and woman . . . have learned early in life to respond to pain with different mechanisms.' For men and women afflicted by misogyny, Christian Men Who Hate Women offers hope for reversing deeply established patterns of relating to and coping with cruelly

From a Dude, who learned from this book, thank God Aug 3, 2006
I was a Type I kind of misogynist, very subtle but controlling husband, and I was horrified to realize I had this issue, lucky for my wife someone got her this book because of course, I was always "right" in our "christian couseling" and someone finally saw my lack of feelings, and all that junk and fingered me out, and when i realized what was going on, this subtle thing, I went to PROFESSIONAL counseling for quite a while and had to really "come out" of my shell and be a REAL man, this book was the begining, and a super life saver, that was 8 years into my marriage, now, 11 years later, on my 19th year of marriage I am the true man my wife always dreamed of an I like myself better too. I would say in this sad day where fathers are wimps and mohters are controlling (for good reason) that there is an epidemic and will continue to be an epidemic of young men who have no idea what real manhood is about and this book is before it's time, so sad to see, but if you search, the truth is out there, you gotta just really want it, this book provides some amazing truth, should be re-printed a zillion times for people.
A Wake Up Call Jan 24, 2006
So many Christian wives believe they are not being abused.The women view the abuse as being taught a wifely lesson.The husband will twist anything,the Bible or experiences from a men's groups meeting to justify his abuse of his wife.Christian counselors can also extend the abuse when they tell a wife to stay with the husband because "divorce is unBiblical"Now how many times have we heard that?I can't count the times women have told me the councelor makes them feel guilty enough to endure more physical and emotional pain.You see,pain as seen as payment for sin.The sin being lack of submission and surrendering of will to the husband.Among the men there will even be a boys will be boys attitude and all sin from a man is looked at as less serious than sin from a woman.Woman suffer from the extra sin of not being submissive enough.More marks against the woman then the man.Another red alert are men who view women as either saints or [prostitutes].Watch out for any strace of this because the husband will limit a wife's sexual expression.Many women don't want to seem to interested in sex for fear their husband will think of them as a [prostitute].Rinck gives all great advice for getting out of an abusive relationship and to not feel guilty it you leave your husband.
Every Church Should Have On Their Shelf Dec 4, 2004
Dr. Rinck has put together a wonderful book to help as a stepping stone for women who have been, or are currently caught in an abusive misogynist relationship.
Dr. Rinck's book, not only raises awareness, but educates and defines the misogynist relationship. For many women who marry religous men, feeling they will have a long lasting and loving marital relationship, only to later find their hopes, dreams and futures spinning in a downward nightmare, this book will be invaluable to them.
I applaud Zondervan Publishing Company for printing Dr. Rinck's book and reaching religous communities, who may have spurn the topic, had it been published by other secular companies. The Christian community has much to be grateful to Zondervan for providing material to enrich and guide the lives of many people.
Thank you both for the book.
Killng Me Softly with His Song Aug 19, 2004
Roberta Flack once did a signature song that is surely to come to mind as soon as the reader picks up this book and finds many true stories spread among its pages. Not epic, but perhaps epidemic, it causes one to question if there should not be "self help and gripe" groups in every church and community to help those men, women and children cope with the harm that misogyny does, and how if manifests itself in people's lives. The authors should consider franchising the help groups since they surely would have the impact that the AAA form has had in the area of alcohol, and the conduct that arises from both personal and public acceptance of misogyny reaches far into most communities with no one to whom victims can turn. Unfortunatey, the emotional harm to self esteem and productivity that misogynistic behavior produces is not so soft, but has hard ramifications in society that last, often for lifetimes. This attempt to properly put misogynistic behavior and people in perspective is a must read for anyone experiencing it, and a should read for those who seek to understand what it is, and how it manifests itself in human relations. Not limited to spousal relations or to one gender alone, (since reverse discrimination can and does operate similarly for some men by women), it is a good review of tactics used by people haters who happen to fall into a narrow category of character - in this case, women.
Is this my life or what ! Feb 4, 2004
A Pastor at my church suggested I glean from this book .... I felt like I was reading a script of my life! This helped undo a lot of the confusion and settle so many of the questions that I had about my marriage. It also helped me know that although I'm not perfect, I was not the root cause of his problems as he so fanatically claims. This helped strengthen my self esteem tremendously.
To help me maintain balance, I also learned to recognize these abusive patterns and how to help dis-arm them.
This is not a book to bash men or husbands, it is a book to help wives gain their sanity and selfworth. Thank you Dr. Rinck!
