What a bookI believe this book will ooh and awe a lot of feminists, and will promote the sex starved marriage that Ken Nair probably endorses. For a lot of good willed men married to angry, controlling feminist wives, this book does a great disservice. Ken trashes the marriage gift of intimacy with his temple prostitution interpretation of 1 Corin. 7. Ken every spouse has a right to expect his or her sexual needs to be met by their spouse. Sexual intimacy is not something that is taken, it is given by a selfless, loving spouse. If women can only react to their husbands leadership, what about the scriptural admonition for wives to "influence their husbands by their gentle manner". I read the book twice and didn't like it. My wife put down her bible and now promotes this book. In some sense, she uses it to justify her emotionally checking out of our marriage.
I also noticed that in two of the most reputable and long running Christian family and marriage organizations, this book is not reviewed or even mentioned. Michele Weiner-Davis, Pat Love, Family Life Today, Emerson egged itch, and many more authors are great. [by Chuck]
Dangerous Reading!This book is full of biblical half-truths and contains dangerous advice to the Christian husband... and wife! Yes, men should learn to be more christlike in their home, but beware of the author's subtle remarks found cover-to-cover.
Be CarefulThough the book contains much Biblical truth, Ken's seminars and year-long (and very expensive) discipleship program contain information that treats women immaturely, condescendingly, and unbiblically. Yes, husbands need to understand their wives and be Christ-like, but are we to make demands toward Christ that Ken encourages wives to place on their husbands? Are wives to look to Christ at all? Are the responsibility of wives only to berate their husbands when they are not being Christ-like?
As Ken implies in his teaching, is it true that women would never sin except their husbands drive them to it by keeping a "record of wrongs" and justifying their anger and rage? By all means, read Ken's book, but with discernment and with the biblical input from others who have walked this path.
