Top Customer Reviews
The Bible has much to say on the marriage responsibilities of both the man and the woman, but some in our culture cite only those that require women to submit to their husbands, even during abuse. For example, "Turn the other cheek," and "Obey your husband." This book's greatest strength is the presentation of other verses which support women protecting themselves. For example: "Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? If any one destroys God's temple, God will destroy him." Also, "Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them." The book also gives this helpful comment: "To turn the other cheek means that we do not return a blow for blow. But we can walk away from it."
The book's conclusions will be something that today's generation of mainstream Christians agree with. If you are looking for in depth study into the interpretation of the verses cited, you won't find it in this book. But if you just need quick reminders and answers to insecurities about leaving an abusive situation, this book is an ideal tool.
