I did not enjoy this book at all. I gave it a 2 because their were some pearls in there. But most of the book seems directed at how wives should be reproving their husbands. She takes a lot of scripture out of context and some of the scripture does not fit at all to what she is saying.
I read some of it to my husband and explained my issues with it. He said it appears that she had thoughts about marriage from a psychology point of view and then went to the bible to try to prove what she thought was correct. Which would make sense with how out of context she was.
Try reading Created to be a help meet instead. It is very biblical and although about killed me reading it, it changed my life and my marriage. It is a hard look at the world vs. god's ideas for marriage and was what I and many need to read.
This is a wonderful book for every wife to have. I've had this book for about 5 years now and I always have to go back and read over content that I may be struggling in at a particular moment. I've given this book out as a gift and I'm always reminded of how grateful they are to having received it.
This is an excellent study for all Christian wives! I have done other studies in the past that gave the basics but they were just "milk". This study gives women "meat". You learn God's plan for marriage and the wife's role, how it applies to you and how to apply it. Martha Peace gives many practical hints and helps to make the application to our lives and walk as Godly wives in overcoming victory!
