Item description for Finding the Hero in Your Husband: Surrendering the Way God Intended by Julianna Slattery...
Overview Finding the Hero in Your Husband is an essential tool for understanding the Christian concept of submission - a frequently misunderstood and often contentious subject. Dr. Slattery combines Christian principles, her professional expertise as a psychologist, and personal experience as a wife in this indispensable book to help women improve their marriages.
When expectations of trust and intimacy go unfulfilled, a wife's anger and fear can result in unhealthy domination and control. The power of a woman's approval and perspective in a relationship cannot be underestimated; it must be directed in ways that promote intimacy instead of destroying it. Dr. Slattery advocates that the key to a successful Christian marriage is a wife's ability to encourage her husband to develop his leadership role in the marriage and her ability to avoid boredom in the bedroom. (The Journal of the American Medical Association reports that 43 percent of women and 31 percent of men are sexually dysfunctional.)
In Finding the Hero in Your Husband, Dr. Slattery uses illustrative case studies and scriptural guidelines to answer many essential questions and explain difficult and sometimes unpopular but relevant concepts to help Christian women improve their relationships. Each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and discussion, making it ideal for both individual reading and group study.
The reissue of Dr. Slattery's indispensable guide to creating a happy marriage. Now updated with questions for individual or group study use, this book offers practical steps to help women enjoy holy matrimony.

Reviews - What do customers think about Finding The Hero In Your Husband?
Typical Dec 25, 2006
Just another typical manipulative book by a so-called christian psychologist giving her own personal 'bible interpretation' of what marriage should be, using all the usual 'techniques' and lacking knowledge of what marriage is really all about. Despite the emphasis and talk about "submission", what you will really find is how to deceptively use "power" to get what you want.
A must read... Nov 9, 2006
This is an excellent book. I recommend that everyone read this book whether you are just getting married or been married for 50 years. It helped me a lot. My marriage is getting better because I practice what she writes in this book!!!
Hero Jul 17, 2006
It is a very informative book, and looks at the marital relationship from both points of view - from husbands view and wifes view. I like the fact that it is unbiased, quite often we buy books to re-inforce our own perceptions and ideas in order to justify the way we think and what we believe, but this is a challenge to both men and womens way of thinking. Bible based and edifying at the same time.
Wonderful insights! Nov 9, 2004
This book, with all of its scriptural references, is a real treasure and sheds brilliant light on the unique role of being a Christian wife. I am in a 2nd marriage (married 6 months) and want very much to head this marriage down the path that God intends. I read several passages to my husband, who is also a Christian, and he agreed that Dr. Slattery has provided accurate insights to the needs of husbands. This book just "jumped off" the bookstore shelf. When I read the foreword and introduction to the book, I realized the challenge I have of being a woman with a strong personality who also desires to be a partner and an encourager, would be addressed in this book. Dr. Slattery did a great job of encouraging me to be all God would have me to be while also acknowledging my husband's role as "head of our household". Her understanding and interpretation of God's Word on this subject is encouraging and freeing! I am purchasing additional books for my female friends and family members. I highly recommend that wives AND their husbands read this book; it is a wonderful basis for discussion that can bring renewed energy and intimacy to a marriage.
A little soul searching... Apr 12, 2004
This is an amazing book! Yes, Julie deals with submission, but more than anything she drives home the point that we are each responsible for our own actions. The moral behind the book is similar to the old saying, "Don't SEARCH for the perfect friend; BECOME the perfect friend!" It is something that is so easy for anyone (in this case, wives) to forget--it is easy to blame all of your problems or arguments on the things that your husband does wrong. Julie helps the reader to take responsibility for her own actions and attitudes. Wives should encourage, not manipulate; pray for their husbands, not nag them. She opened my eyes about so many things that I had been doing without even thinking about them! Thanks, Julie!
