In his typical crisp, biblical style, he lays out practical, biblical descriptions of various aspects of love - love that is practical, protecting, purposeful, passionate, praying, purifying, pardoning, and persevering. Every chapter concludes with discussion questions and action steps that make the book perfect for one-on-one mentoring, small-group discussion, or for personal thoughtful reflection.

Excellent resource and all of the men have grown spiritually and as husbands.
As a counselor, I recommend this book to my clients who desire to become better husbands. I've been looking for a good resource that shows husbands how to love like Christ and this book is a great start!
Carey Hardy5 Stars Out Of 5July 10, 2010Carey HardyI have served in pastoral ministry for over 20 years. During these years I have certainly counseled a lot of individuals and couples. Since I desire to be effective in both the public ministry of the Word (preaching) and the private ministry of the Word (counseling/discipleship), I am constantly on the lookout for tools that are biblically accurate. It was a thrill and blessing, therefore, to read Larry's latest book. It is biblically solid, centering on the implications of knowing Christ and the gospel of grace. I have read many books related to marriage and the roles of husband and wife, some better than others. This is one of the best. I am looking forward now to using this book in my ministry to the men at the church where I serve. It was encouraging and convicting to my own heart--I am positive it will be so to others.
Byron Paulus5 Stars Out Of 5March 19, 2009Byron PaulusManeuvering your way around societys roadblocks to achieve a God-honoring marriage requires a resource filled with biblical insights and plenty of practical help. Larry McCall provides that and much more in this relational roadmap to happiness, intimacy, and genuine fulfillment. For men who want Gods best, this book is like having access to a handheld GPS, instead of stopping for directions in the middle of the desert. Its all there! Men who get this book and apply its principles stand ready to become culture changers. This may be the best book for men on marriage I have ever read! Byron Paulus, President, Life Action Ministries
Hutz H. Hertzberg5 Stars Out Of 5March 19, 2009Hutz H. Hertzberg"Larry McCall puts "feet" on what it means to really love ones wife. This book is a must-read for any husband no longer satisfied with a mediocre marriage relationship. I am both convicted and challenged to love my wife better". H.H.H. Chicago
Paul Spasic5 Stars Out Of 5March 17, 2009Paul SpasicNothing is more important than connecting with men on biblical grounds if we are to turn the tide of marital mediocrity and breakdown. Few authors address husbands without rambling in information overload or falling prey to being condescending and condemning. In this book, Pastor McCall avoids both and effectively mentors the reader, perhaps more effectively than I've read yet.

Tell us a little about yourself. I've had the joy of being a pastor at Christ's Covenant Church of Winona Lake, IN since 1981. I find great joy in preaching and teaching God's powerful Word to His precious people. I've been married to my high school sweetheart, Gladine, since 1975. We have three married children and also greatly enjoy being grandparents.
What was your motivation behind this project? Every married couple struggles, including my wife and I, and I know why. My wife married a sinner (and so did I). As a pastor for nearly 30 years, I've seen other couples struggling, too. Especially on my heart have been the men--the husbands--who really do want to be good husbands, but feel that they have lacked good role models to show them the "how" of husbanding. This book is offered as help to those men who really do want to grow in loving their wives.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? My prayerful desire for the men who read "Loving Your Wife as Christ Loves the Church" is that they will find that they do have a role model for loving their wives--a Perfect Role Model. He is none other than the Lord Jesus, the Perfect Husband to His bride, the church. In this book, the readers are taken first to Christ, seeing His love for us in action, then from His example, the readers are given practical help in how His love for His bride can be "mirrored" in our own relationships with our wives.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? There were several times in writing this book that I almost called the publisher asking to be released from my contract. I felt so inadequate. My thoughtful wife encouraged me to press on, expressing, "If no one else benefits from this book, maybe we will!" She has been right. After all these years, we still work on our marriage, and I find the principles in "Loving Your Wife as Christ Loves the Church" so helpful in our own marriage. I'm currently going through this book with my accountability group and finding it beneficial personally. In fact, I think I'll read this book at least once every year!
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I found great benefit in reading Dave Harvey's book "When Sinners Say 'I Do.'" John Piper, Bob Lepine, C.J. Mahaney and Gary Ricucci were also very motivating to me.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: This book will be helpful, Lord willing, to the individual reader, but I believe it will be most beneficial to men who go through it with other men. Each chapter has discussion questions and action steps, making it ideal for men's ministries, accountability groups, man-to-man mentoring, marriage counseling, premarital counseling, etc.
