Product Description

Just what is a politically incorrect wife? She is a woman who is married to her husband and not to popular American culture. The politically incorrect wife does not buy into the stifling modern-day thinking that says, "Look out for number one. Treat your husband no better that he treats you." Instead, she cultivates a joyful marriage using transformation spiritual principles. As formerly politically correct wives with miserable marriages, popular speakers and authors Nancy Cobb and Connie Grigsby lead readers confidently beyond the picket lines of the politically correct--into a warm, rewarding marriage.

Publisher's Weekly

For Christian women who feel they're at wits end with their marriage, this matrimony manual offers straightforward advice on how to set aside the ways of the self-centered, modern world and become a godly wife by putting Jesus at the forefront of the relationship. Reminiscent of talk show host Dr. Phil with a biblical twist (and with a philosophy not unlike that of Laura Doyle's controversial The Surrendered Wife), the book presents hard and fast teachings to transform the "politically correct" wife into one who submits to "God's scriptural 'job description' for wives." The principles of politically incorrect wives include learning to forgive, respecting and honoring one's husband and putting him first, even before the children. Cobb (a church director of women's ministries in Omaha, Neb.) and Grigsby (coauthor of How to Get Your Husband to Talk to You) present advice that could help any Christian marriage-the chapter on forgiveness and acceptance, for example, shows how bitterness can be released and destructive patterns changed. Making the home marriage-centered rather than child-centered, the authors maintain, will keep children from becoming narcissistic adults with inflated egos. With so many well-meaning but specific directives, however, the guide doesn't give the reader room to explore her own feelings, and unless she feels consistently godly, these rules may serve only as a band-aid covering deeper wounds or problems.

    As a biblical counselor I am selective about the books I read and recommend. This book was fantastic. Takes the focus off of the marriage and the wife's satisfaction with her husband, to focusing on being the wife she should be, by being obedient to God. It no longer is about her husband as much as it is about pleasing God. Great perspective and easy to understand. I highly recommend it to counselors.
