Well written, clear and Biblical.
C. Bellotti
The beautiful thing about this book is you can't just read it, your force to look up the scriptures in your own bible.

I would recommend this book to all men who are planing to get married or are married already.

Format: Paperback
This book is excellent. Authored by Stuart Scott and the forward by John MacArthur. A couple of years ago I went to a conference where they focused one of the sessions on this book throughout the week. I will tell you that at that time I came back and begged forgiveness from my wife. Since that time I never actually read the book until now. It had some great reminders and also some insight that time did not permit at the conference.

The book is laid out in four sections:

1. A Husband's Recognitions: Foundational Truths for the Exemplary Husband

This section focuses on understanding God's sovereignty, sin, relationships and the husband's role. This really sets up the foundation for the husband and the man of God in the marriage role. Understanding who God is and who the man isn't.

2. A Husband's Responsibilities: Faithful Commitments of the Husband

This section focuses on worship, love, leadership, physical intimacy and

stewardship. I found this to be a section that deals with a subject that is often avoided: sexual intimacy. There were great reminders and also some great thoughts on the subject on the importance of sexual intimacy, but also the reminder that our marriages are not completely revolving around sexual intimacy. Sometimes, we as husbands, wish it were.

3. A Husband's Resolves: Fundamental Commitments of the Exemplary Husband

This section focuses on humility and service, sensitivity, helping wife with sin, communication and conflict resolution. This was a great section that lists out issues of those with pride and also shows you the aspects of a humble person. I really enjoyed this section as it showed me some things I really need to work on with pride and communication.

56 of 59 people found the following review helpful By A disciple of Jesus Christ on January 16, 2005
Format: Paperback
This book is more about how a man can live a Biblically based life than specifically how to be a good husband. Perhaps 10-15 percent of the book is specific to the marriage relationship. That makes it a great book for discipling men in general. All areas of life and relationships in general are covered with specific strategies for overcoming sin to the glory of God (e.g. See your sin biblically and put-off/put-on). Highly recommended. BTW, for a book specific to the marriage relationship, I recommend The Complete Husband by Lou Priolo

36 of 38 people found the following review helpful By John A. Bird on August 27, 2009
Format: Paperback
The home is the most important area of ministry for husbands. It can also be the most difficult, and it is often the most neglected. The characteristics of an exemplary husband do not come naturally. Nor are they taught in school. We need help. Outside of the Bible, Dr. Stuart Scott's The Exemplary Husband is the best help I've found.

The Exemplary Husband is divided into four parts: A Husband's Understanding, A Husband's Responsibility, A Husband's Resolves, and A Husband's Regrets.

In part one, Dr. Scott gives the biblical and theological background for the rest of the book. Before a man can succeed as a Christian husband, he must understand who God is. He must also understand his own fallen condition, and he must know and understand what the Bible says about relationships, marriage, and the husband's role in marriage.

Part two deals with the husband's responsibilities. First and foremost, the exemplary husband must worship Christ alone. Other responsibilities of a husband discussed in part two are love, leadership, physical intimacy, and stewardship.

In part 3, A Husband's Resolves, Dr. Scott says that the fundamental commitments of the exemplary husband should be humility, service, sensitivity to his wife, helping his wife deal with her sin, good communication, and conflict resolution.

The book closes with part four, where Dr. Scott deals with those sins common to men that do great harm to a marriage: anger, anxiety and fear, and lust.

Strengths

The first thing I appreciate about this book is its layout and formatting. There are 4 parts, 21 chapters that fit neatly into the parts, and 372 pages. At the end of the book are nine helpful and practical appendixes along with several pages for notes.

This is the best book of this genre, in my view. Well written, clear and Biblical. If I could only keep one book on being a Christian husband (and I have many), it would be this book.

Format: Paperback
This is a great guide for understanding God's viewpoint when concidering how a husband should conduct himself. It also will help a person to understand why Christians take God's view of marriage so seriously.

Format: Paperback
If you're looking for a practical, applicable book on what a man of God looks like, how he thinks and works, all based on scripture rather than some man's ideas... get this book. Very helpful foundation of Christian beliefs as well as daily living examples and ideas to put your faith into daily life! I wish I'd had this book as a single teen, during pre-marriage counseling, as a new husband and as a new father.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a single man 28, preparing to marriage. For me marriage was a distance event until the lord made it clear i needed to prepare. so i have been doing so for the last two years. I saw the book and decided to order it. Currently about 1/3 of the way through the book. This is a real meat and potatoes book based on the bible. It is really more like a bible reference that ties all the biblical roles, responsibilities, and perspectives together in a fashion the is easy to understand and read. The beautiful thing about this book is you can't just read it, your force to look up the scriptures in your own bible. If men take the time to read and apply this, it will change your life. We need to fix the family crisis in America but until men step up to the plate and take gods standard for marriage, we will not be able to turn this ship.
