Top Customer Reviews
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. Very practical and easy to follow.
4. A Husband's Regrets: Fatal Sins to the Exemplary Husband
This section deals with anger, axiety, fear and lust. It completely helps
the husband "nip these problems in the bud" and deal with them biblically.
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend this book to any and all husbands and also for those who are engaged as well. Very biblical book that focuses the attention on our calling from a biblical standpoint instead of some of the misconceptions of the secular viewpoint of what the Bible calls the man to be. The author changes the thought of the man being a dictator to the man being the godly leader who submits to Christ and readies his wife for eternity
If you are a single man, I would still highly recommend this book. Most of what is covered here applies to a man's walk in following Christ, and even the topics that are specific to marriage are still applicable in other areas of life. I've used this book as a source in men's groups which had married and single men mixed together, and never felt like the single guys were getting the short shrift. At the very least, it would be a good eye-opener for what to expect later on in life if they get married. Highly recommended. Just ignore the illustrations!
