This book goes back to the bible for its direction. I know a lot of women read these books and think that they shouldn't "follow" or have a man "lead" but there's something to it. Marriage as God intended is not what we practice today, which may explain the divorce rate. Trust me, this book will change your life, as well as your husband's. You can not read this book and not have it make a huge impact on how you conduct yourself as a Christian wife.

The outline of the book is outstanding. It's a shame some people may misread and misinterpret much of what George is relating from her own life experiences. She could have spent more time and space reflecting on the Biblical guidelines for a happy marriage, as well as examples or illustrations from other people rather than herself. The whole issue of submission should not overshadow the role of the wife to provide a check and balance for success and happiness in a marriage.

I am just over halfway through this book, but maybe because I've recently read some EXCELLENT books on the same topic, George's just isn't doing it for me. I agree with the reviewer who thought her "advice" to not talk for a whole day was a bit (or rather, a LOT) off the mark. My husband happens to enjoy talking with me, and I with him. Some of her principles are okay, but they are mostly the ones that seem common sense. Some, like the not talking suggestion, are just a little too out there for me. While I do agree that God intended my husband to be the spiritual leader in our home, I do not believe that he is to be my master or my "lord". The new testament is very clear on submission, and states that it (submission) is to come from BOTH spouses! My other issue is her writing style. Dear friend, precious reader...ick. Talk (write) to me as though I am an adult, not a 5 year old!

I suggest Becoming the Woman of His Dreams, by Sharon Jaynes, and also Every Woman's Battle, by Shannon Ethridge. They are both excellent resources on this topic!

I feel the need to defend this book a little bit, as it has been pretty well slammed by some other readers. Elizabeth George has a God-given talent for telling it like it is. The reason why several readers have negative feedback for this book, is that she tells the truth about what Scripture actually says. Wives ARE to submit to their husbands and be obedient them. Husbands are put in authority over their wives. In turn, the husband is to love the wife as Christ loves the Church. Of course husbands are not perfect and have their own flaws. A wife is supposed to be his help-meet, though and offer her own counsel in daily situations. It is not the wife's place to be the spiritual leader of the home, nor should the responsibility of providing for the household fall on her shoulders. Her congregation is her children and her pulpit the kitchen table. She should focus her preaching to the children, not her husband. All the time spent controlling him would be much better spent in prayer. I don't understand why so many women want to be so free of authority in their lives. If you have a problem with obeying your husband, than it's possible that your real beef is with God, since that is the way He designed it all to begin with. Read this book. It will help you get back to the basics of what being a wife is all about.

If you don't look at anything else, you might think this study is O.K. In MANY respects, it isn't biblical at all, because George twists the Word of God to fit her preconceived ideas. Please don't waste your time with it. Pick up "Enhancing Your Marriage" by Judy Rossi. I'll talk more about that later. Elizabeth George paints a very negative picture of women, not as the beautiful counterpart to men, created in the image of God. You get beat over the head with submission and the "helper" theology. But George doesn't bother to mention that the same "help meet" word that is used for a woman, is also used to describe God (see PS 46:1). George makes you look up 4 verses on the contentious wife, but leaves any positive image out of that section, which is supposed to talk about the effect a wife's words can have on her husband. In Little Things that Make a Big Difference, George recommends "so aim for at least 5 minutes a day of Bible reading", and then turns around and says "Now can't you scrape up 15 minutes today . . . and every day?" regarding reading a Christian book on ANY topic. What kind of recommendations are those? Aren't they a little mixed up. I also have a huge problem with recommending reading just any Christian book. There is so much out there that isn't fit for print, let alone reading. George's "recipe" for good communication (in an effort to make everything begin with the same letter) says that your speech should be soft, sweet, suitable, scant, and slow. She never brings up the verse on only saying what will build up. She built her own little doctrine out of a few verses, while completely ignoring why God made women as they are.Read more ›
