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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
