This book should be in the hands of EVERY Christian husband.

I don't make that statement lightly. There are many books on marriage, some good, some not so good. Some are heavy on philosophy & theology, some on psychology, some on practical advice. Some are slanted toward newlyweds while others focus on troubled marriages. Some are thoroughly Biblical while many give the Bible only lip service even though they are marketed as Christian.

Loving Your Wife as Christ Loves the Church, however, is truly in a class by itself among the marriage books that I have read. It is:

Bible based: It's not self-help pop psychology with Bible verses to back it up: every chapter, every point comes from a strictly Biblical foundation from the ground up. Frankly, a non-Christian wouldn't understand this book at all, and frankly, that's the mark of a thoroughly Biblical book.

Christ focused: this book takes seriously the truth that God designed the role of a husband to his wife to be a unique representation of Christ, and that EVERYTHING that a husband thinks, says, or does in relation to his wife has to be based on that truth. Every single teaching on every single page is rooted & grounded in the character of Christ. Wow.

Pastoral: This is a pastoral book. By that I mean you see this man's heart as a pastor, a shepherd. He sits you down as a friend & mentor, as Paul would to Timothy, & speaks in both truth & love. His words are straightforward & easy to grasp, but targeted to one end: helping you become a husband that is a reflection of Christ.

Honest: This book doesn't pretend that marriage is easy if you just follow these five simple steps. He's honest about the difficulties & shares some of his own failures as a husband.

I have read this book twice. I lost my wife of 51 years to cancer 16 months ago and I have fallen in love with a beautiful lady and I saw this book in a store in California and got it. I read it so it could help me if we get married. The book is awesome, I wish I had read it before my wife passed and I could have put into practice some of the things Larry talks about.

I want to make sure that if God blesses me with marrying this wonderful lady that I don't make some of the same mistakes I made the first time. My marriage was very good, it lasted 51 years, but I know I could have done a lot of things different and this time that's what I want.

The book is excellent for both married men or men like me that are thinking about getting married. It is so much better to know what to do correctly ahead of time than to find out what you should have done after the fact.

I am giving this book to friends of mine that are married to read. I have given it to my pastor for read also. I think it would be a great study group subject for all married men.

Loving Your Wife as Christ Loves the Church is the latest release from Larry McCall (Walking Like Jesus Did). He not only is an author but conference & leadership seminar speaker, and the Pastor for Preaching and Teaching at Christ's Covenant Church which is just a short drive from where I live. Published by BMH Books, a local publishing house, Loving Your Wife was a book I was immediately interested in reading and reviewing.

Loving Your Wife takes Ephesians 5:25 and unpacks it in such a way that men come to know a full understanding of Paul's exhortation. McCall challenges husbands to love their wives in very practical terms, and his pastor's heart comes out at the end of every chapter as he provides questions to consider and action steps to apply. His appendices further this practicality as he offers insight for men who may be married to an unconverted wife, living in a difficult marriage or those who might want to begin an accountability group.

Loving Your Wife was easy to read and yet challenged my thinking concerning my own marriage. I found myself reflecting, and wincing from time to time, as I finished each chapter. I enjoyed the manner in which Larry McCall probed nuances of the biblical text, and in the process stayed true to it's intended meaning. I envision this book being used by men's groups, young married classes, as a counseling resource and other varied ways in & out of the church.

I recommend this book unreservedly!

I have served in pastoral ministry for over 20 years. During these years I have certainly counseled a lot of individuals and couples. Since I desire to be effective in both the public ministry of the Word (preaching) and the private ministry of the Word (counseling/discipleship), I am constantly on the lookout for tools that are biblically accurate. It was a thrill and blessing, therefore, to read Larry's latest book. It is biblically solid, centering on the implications of knowing Christ and the gospel of grace. I have read many books related to marriage and the roles of husband and wife, some better than others. This is one of the best. I am looking forward now to using this book in my ministry to the men at the church where I serve. It was encouraging and convicting to my own heart--I am positive it will be so to others.
