Author Steve Mcvey in this book writes about women whose husbands either don’t know Christ, or have walked away from the faith, and gives them counsel on how to live day to day.
He makes mention to NOT take a legalistic approach, to bring husbands to Christ. This we know must be done with grace and patience. He also stressed, that one must not try and change their husband. He tells them to let go of the idea there is something they can do, as this can risk interfering with what the Holy Spirit may be doing in their husband’s life. He also indicates when it is appropriate to take a stand against destructive behavior in a relationship, and how to take that stand.
Chapter 8 deals with emotional abuse, what it is and how to deal with the situation, although I tend to disagree somewhat with what he says here, I don’t think he truly understands what it is like to be emotionally abused by someone, time and time again. He then talks about the physical abuse in chapter 20, and once again I don’t think he truly understands what a woman endures in these situations.
I do think that this book does merit value, and is a good read for a wife who is experiencing some difficulties in her marriage.
