This is a book that will only appeal to Christian readers, as it is filled with Biblical quotes and based upon Christian perspectives. It is primarily the author's view, with some studies and external references thrown in. I disagreed with some of her interpretations, but others I was in agreement with. I think that if you read this book knowing that it is just one woman's perspective, it can be very helpful; if the reader allows herself/himself to think about the ideas put forth here there is much that she/he could gain. If the reader is looking for scientific studies or objective perspectives or even secular viewpoints, these would not be found here.
The book starts out describing narcissistic marriages. The second part of the book discusses various Christian ideas and interpretations of the Bible that perpetuate narcissistic marriages and why these are wrong--not Biblical and not supportive of the non-narcissistic spouse. The last part of the book, which is the shortest, but in some ways the strongest, discusses strategies that can be implemented if you choose to stay in your marriage with a narcissist either temporarily or permanently.
The book acknowledges that abuse takes place both with male and female narcissists but focuses primarily on marriages in which the narcissist is the male, because it is far more prevalent.
I thought it was good book about a little-discussed topic.
