Book 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 than he treats you." Instead, she cultivates a joyful marriage using transformational 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.


From the Trade Paperback edition.


Editorial Reviews

From Publishers 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars More equal than I thought June 3, 2007
Format:Paperback
Inspite of the fact that I believe in mutual submission and not authority submission in marriage, this book had a lot of admirable points. Although these authors believe in the complimentarian model of marriage, it's undeniable that they have a better balance of the idea of submission in a marriage than many of the over-the-top authors I've come across.

There are some weaknesses, of course; along with the usual worn-out authority issue is the myth that marriage will fall apart if neither partner takes the reins. The authors never say this, but they do give society and the military as examples and ask us to imagine what it would be like if no authority was involved in either system. They then try to use marriage as the same sort of system, implying that it too will fall apart without authority. Please, guys! We're talking about TWO people here, not the army or society, the former which is built on authority and the latter which contains criminals and other low-lifes. If two people who love each other commit to each other, there's actually a slim chance things will work just fine! God is the only authority needed. If you bristle like a porcupine anytime you read/hear the words "you are under your husband's authority", you'll have to take this book with a grain of salt if you decide to read it. Inspite of the fact that I bristle like said porcupine when I come across this idea of marital principle and this analogy of the authors very much exasperated me, I forced myself to go over this book's points anyway and came out more impressed than I originally thought I'd be.

There are three main things about this book that earned my respect.

5.0 out of 5 stars In a Culture of Feminism, Practical, Biblical Submission September 5, 2004
Format:Paperback
This is a wonderful book for the Christian wife who wants to put into practice the biblical command to be subject to her own husband, but doesn't really know what that LOOKS like in a day-to-day fashion.

Contrary to another reviewer's comments, this is not a return to the 50's or an evil plot from the Religious Right, and no where do the authors promote women staying in abusive relationships. What they do advocate is right out of the scriptures, and is extrememly helpful to someone who wants to live by those scriptures despite what she is being told by the feminist culture around her.

5.0 out of 5 stars It really works!!! You MUST try it!!! December 10, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I don't know about you, but I've always wanted to have a fulfilling marriage. However, I wanted to do it "my way" instead of God's way. I knew many Biblical recommendations on how to do it, but I vehemently refused to follow them. I was simply too self-centered, too stubborn, too independent... The results; I was failing miserably!!!
One day, in sincere heart-felt prayer, the Holy Spirit led me to this book. I bought it and started reading it immediately, but must admit, I had little hope. To my surprise, I just couldn't stop reading! Even within my extremely busy schedule, I made time to finish it in one week.
Here are my humble comments about this masterpiece. Through their writing, the authors helped me understand:
- the specific areas were I was failing as a wife.
- God's job description for wives in detail.
- concepts that are foreign to modern women such as personal responsibility, accountability, commitment, loving your home, establishing godly priorities, making wise decisions, and the awesome rewards of having a servant's heart for the wellbeing of the whole family.
- the blessings and rewards of sincere submission.
The book is easy to read, follows a very logical sequence, contains a significant number of real life examples, and offers incredibly useful, PRACTICAL, and easy to follow recommendations for the reader to start making a difference immediately.
I was so impacted with its contents that I've shared it with other women whose hearts are set in pleasing the Lord Jesuschrist. Their HUSBANDS have told me that IT REALLY WORKS!!!

I'm a real bookworm so if I say that this is one of the best book I've read in years that inspires us to honor and respect our husbands that's saying alot.I am buying extra copies to give to friends to urge and encourage them to read it.
This book is solidly biblical and "meat".If you like Elizabeth George,Martha Peace and Fascinating Womanhood you'll love this book.Even if you've never heard of them you'll still love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish I had this book twenty years ago. February 24, 2006
Format:Paperback
My "happy" marriage was failing and I had no clue as to why. Both this book and "The Power of a Praying Wife" opened my eyes and truly revealed to me what I had been doing wrong for so many years. This was a book that I couldn't put down, but also at times, had a hard time reading because I felt it was leading me to take on a role that would lose myself to me. But it's a book full of biblical truth and has truly transformed me into a stronger woman who's marriage now has hope when there was none. I'm a better woman for it and feel I truly am serving God by being the kind of wife the bible teaches us to be, rather than a wife that society has created. I am a Godly wife, my family is intact and the man I love is still my husband, my marriage is blessed. This book taught me and transformed my life. I haven't lost who I am at all, I am better and much more blessed because of it.
