Item description for Rocking the Roles: Building a Win-Win Marriage by Robert Lewis, William D. Hendricks & William Hendricks...

What does the Bible say about marriage? It's not as limiting as you might think. Discover a radical blend of both structure and equality by examining common myths about marriage. Recently revised and updated. THE TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE NEVER WAS THE BIBLICAL MARRIAGE. Ozzie and Harriet are gone. And with them, the idea that the traditional marriage is the only right way. Yet, today's couples are also discovering that the "roleness" marriage in which everything is equal, with no distinction between male and female, isn't all that satisfying either. Rocking the Roles examines what the Bible really has to say about the male and female roles. A far cry from the restrictions of the traditional marriage or the formlessness of modern marriage, this approach offers a perfect blend of structure and equality, balance and beauty. It explores: Common myths and misunderstanding about marriage roles 'Core' roles that don't limit choices but help prioritize commitments, energy, and time What husbands and wives most need to understand about each other What the "S" word-submission-is and is not Spiritual leadership as practical responsibility, not privileged rank How to transform your marriage by applying these practical, biblical principles to day-to-day life. So if you want a marriage in which fairness, respect, and support operate equally between you and your partner, it's time for Rocking the Roles-and for discovering God's radical, inspired, and timeless design for lasting marriage.

Reviews - What do customers think about Rocking the Roles: Building a Win-Win Marriage?

My fiance actually loved it  Aug 4, 2008
My fiance doesn't finish many books, but I gave him this one and he read it all the way through and he really liked the ideas that the book puts forth
Caution - EXPLOSIVE! My new #1 book ever.  Oct 18, 2007
This book is a uncompromising punch in the face to bad theology, bad thinking, and bad culture. Here comes the cold water!

The book launches with a fair and open discussion of roles in marriage. In case anybody out there is afraid of even talking about "roles" in marriage, rest assured Dr. Lewis fairly gives both the culture and tradition enough time to say their peace.

Nevertheless, be prepared to have your eyes blown wide open!

Launching from this consideration of roles in marriage, Dr. Robert Lewis passionately and yet surprisingly unpretentiously conveys to the reader a keen understanding of the key issues that plague society today, and yesterday. In the context of these issues, Dr. Lewis annihilates the shoddy ideas about marriage purveyed by both the culture AND tradition!

I found this book to be without question the most comprehensive, balanced, and informative consideration of marriage roles I have ever encountered. Lewis doesn't just challenge today's society; he has made a case against a fraudulent and stupid cultural mindset that has existed, largely unchallenged, for millennia!

Using statistics, rational thought, and refreshingly accurate interpretation of supporting documentation, Dr. Lewis puts the limelight on the failings of the current paradigms regarding marriage, and in response, he gives the fresh air people are gasping for - absolute victorious truth.

You don't have to be a Christian to understand (or even enjoy reading) this book - everything is supported by (obviously well-researched) relevant clinical and demographic information from wide-ranging sources. I might argue that many Christians would be shocked about how little they knew about marriage (as God intended it to be) before reading this book.

I come from a family where I lacked an involved father figure and I was raised by a dedicated single mother. I was shocked at times by what he said; Dr. Lewis' work helped me understand a lot about my own life. I implore societal leaders, mothers, fathers, and ANYBODY who wants to lead a fulfilling life to read this book - it will re-shape your ideas on how to achieve fulfilment and a balanced family life, and you will never regret it.

Lewis speaks boldly and without excuses. You may not like what he is saying, but I challenge anyone to disagree with him on a non-trivial point. Lewis bases his instruction on timeless truths, and it shows.

Dr. Robert Lewis has written THE defining book on marital structure and the functional operation of a marriage, as well as on the support systems for marriage (i.e. church, counsellors, friends.) The mindset produced by the knowledge in this book raises the bar for the outcomes of marriage to what God always intended them to be: fulfilled lifelong couples, successful and happy individuals, and glorious children, all which lead to substantial learning about oneself and about God.

As Denis Rainey says at the start of the book "This book will challenge your ideas about 'Traditional Marriage.'" I see Mr. Rainey, and I raise him; this is some HOT, HOT, SAUCE. This is a must-must read, and my new favourite book ever, but if you don't like the heat, stay out of the fire.

I'm positive that if you read this book, it will convince you to take action. It will put the reasoned desire in you to move your marriage to a whole new level. In that case, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the other book I just read- "Sacred Marriage" by Gary Thomas. If this book turns your idea of marriage from a skateboard to an Indy racer, Thomas' book will take your fast machine and put Space Shuttle booster rockets on it. If you only ever read two books on marriage, choose these two. They changed my life.

Worth the Read  Sep 16, 2007
This is an eye opening book on how God has ordained the roles of the husband and wife in a marriage. If you WANT a "Win-Win" marriage, than this book will benefit you deeply.
Rocking the Roles  May 26, 2007
The author of this book hits the nail on the head! If we all could adopt the principals in this book, the divorce rate in America would be greatly reduced. Whether a person is a believer or not, this good biblically backed, common sense approach to marriage, will set your relationship on fire. This book should be a prerequisite to marriage.

Lewis Gets It   Mar 16, 2007
Lewis lays out a thoughtful approach to marriage that, if followed, will provide love, security, tenderness and understanding for the wife and affirmation, respect and appreciation for the husband.
