It was recommended by our church leadership and it really helped me to understand Gods plan for women.

Over 600,000 in print. Over 600,000 miserably unhappy women who will never know their own voice or importance in God's eyes.
This book should be outlawed. I stupidly followed it, thinking I was 'obeying God,' and it nearly cost me my life. Every single religion with a rare few small exceptions demand that women be subjected and submissive to the men. Of course, it makes life much easier for the men that way - but is it right and is it from God? Surely, being God and truly infallible, He himself would not have made so egregious an error as Paul and Peter (who, by the way, are not Christ), open to all sorts of loop holes and blunders and opportunities for abuse. When a man can be submissive to the whim of his wife for about a year, then he can come and talk to women about how wonderful it is to be a 3rd rate citizen, second only in importance to the car. This book opens the gateway for very abusive, horrible, evil deeds by so-called Christian men. When a truly God inspired Word is given, we can test it to see if it pans out in real life. When it does and it is life-affirming and edifying, then it is from the Lord. But if it doesn't pan out in real life, as in Peter and Paul's words, and it is certainly not life-affirming (Well, OK, it affirms the life of the husband, only), then one must do due diligence, use the logic, reason, and intellect God has endowed us all with - and yes, He even gave women brains - and come to a reasonable conclusion. Because we are only given one life. And we can never make up the time thrown away to an abusive husband while we try to remain meek, submissive and obedient to God when, in fact, we are only being obedient to the edicts of man and ruining our lives needlessly. This is not why we were born. Women have the God-given right to defend themselves.

This is toxic waste disguised as a book. Unfortunately it cannot be laughed off as just badly written tripe; the ideology spouted here is dangerous and corrosive to scared women in abusive relationships. It preaches to women in bad marriages that if their husband is "repulsive" then it is their fault--they are not submissive enough. If a woman wants to express her own opinion about something then she is directly disobeying God. Women = children and are incapable of having spiritual intuition or common sense. If you husband is abusive and vile, then obey him even MORE; if he continues to abuse you then you are not trying hard enough.

Having grown up in an abusive household where my own mother was unwilling to escape because "God forbids divorce" and "we need to obey and respect your father" this book make my blood boil. The fact that it was written by a woman is all the more tragic. I weep for the women who believe that their unequal and emotionally abusive marriages are all their fault. This book preys on the weak and desperate and is like acid to the face for those struggling with low self-esteem.

There is no better way for me to dissuade you from reading this then simply providing direct quotes:
-"Women are more often led into spiritual error than men"(17)
-"When a woman takes the spiritual leadership of the home, it always leads to tragedy" (18)
-"A wife obeys her husband...whether he earns her respect or not" (25)
-"She is to obey her husband as if he were God Himself. She can be as certain of God's will, when her husband speaks, as if God had spoken audibly from Heaven!

This is very biblically based and it works! And most importantly it addresses your personal relationship with God as well as your husband.

The negative reviews below sadden me, because I was there once and used to think that "submission" was a dirty word. How I wish I had learned these lessons earlier on in my marriage; how much grief I would've saved myself! God is gracious. Through this book and godly authors such as Elisabeth Elliot and Elizabeth George, I am learning what it takes to be a godly wife who is pleasing to the Lord.
Is it any wonder that the very first sin ever committed was by a woman who did not want to submit to her husband? Satan is still lying to women today. He convinces them that submission is restrictive, when the truth is that submission is freeing. "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free." (John 8:32)
This book is worth its weight in gold. Do yourself and your marriage a favor and buy it, read it and most of all, APPLY IT to your life. You will be blessed. You will be transformed.

I read this book two years ago. I reread it every now and then. I have used it in my marriage classes. I have purchased over 50 books for others. When I first began to read the book. I had to get a friend to help me through the first chapter. I "WAS" a wife who felt the word submission was sickening. I would always replaced the word submit with desire to please, according to Gen.3:16. It gave me a since of choice and control. After reading this book, I understand that submission is power and freedom. I rejoice in submitting to my husband. By subitting to my husband, I am submitting to God. Submission is Gods perfect will. God changes not, He is the same today yesterday and forever. Others have come back to thanked me for sharing this book. I called the author to personally thank her and encourage her in her ministry to women. This book is a must read for every wife and future bride.
