I participated in this study through my church several years ago. It was awful! The author takes submission too far. In fact, my husband requested that I stop doing the things that I learned in the book. This study was suggested in another group and when I told my husband what was going to be studied he was so strongly opposed, he told me I was not to participate in that study cycle. My husband does not often give such strong demands, but he did with this study. This study takes scripture out of context and leads women to believe they are a servant in their house, not a beloved spouse and helpmate. It heaps guilt and a heavy load on the wife. That is not scriptural at all!
When you purchase The Excellent Wife book, be sure to also purchase this study guide. The study guide was fantastic and really helped reiterate the important points of each chapter that are essential to successfully (with God's grace) becoming and excellent wife. If you are buying the book, I'd definitely recommend buying the study guide with it!
I don't use study guides. I don't like them and they never do much for me. But this one is really helping things to hit home. Making sure I know the scriptures, and don't miss things. If you are studying The Excellent Wife, get the study guide also. I really feel like I am studying and learning godly principals.
We are planning a workshop in January and we are using the books The Excellent Wife and The Exemplary Husband. The Study Guides are very helpful in preparing the outlines for the different classes. We are using the two books The Excellent Wife and The Exemplary Husband in our Sunday School Class. They are wonderful resource books. I believe all married women should read The Excellent Wife. It gives insight into what God would have us to know and do in our married lives.
A excellent thought provoking companion to The Excellent Wife book. The study guide helps you to think about your own marriage and take steps to better it with God's help. A practical Biblical resource. Great for individuals or in a Women's Bible Study.
