Overview

God ordained marriage between a man and a woman for companionship, procreation, and so man would have a helper suitable. However, God says much more in the Bible about husbands loving their wives than He says about wives submitting to their husbands. He created marriage to be a picture of the relationship between Christ and the Church. Christ was willing to sacrifice His life for the Church, and God expects no less from husbands today. The overall purpose of The Exemplary Husband is to assist husbands toward purposeful and lasting Christlikeness for the glory of God. It was written to be a companion book for The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace. Couples who commit to the biblical principles presented in these books will find a oneness in marriage that will give God glory and bring His blessing.

As someone who counsels couples, this book has provided its worth over and over.   I would definitely recommend it and the study guide for a couple wanting to study it together on their own, in counseling, or in a community group at a church. The book moves from foundational chapters to very practical chapters on how to be a godly husband. I have had people tell me this study in the Bible saved their marriage before, so you can imagine it is worth reading.

I went through this book with my men's group bible study. It has really helped out in all our marriages. This book is s great guide for anyone who is in a serious relationship, engaged, or married. I highly recommend it.

I have read a dozen or more books about trying to become a Godly husband. Some have a lot of useful data, others not so much. Some authors show their sense of humor and this makes learning a bit more fun. This book, however, is possibly the hardest to read. The text is very dry. No humor, not many relative insights. It's written more like a college text book in that it's the facts and nothing but the facts. I could only read maybe 10-12 pages at a time. All this being said, the information the author presents is very, very good, and there are many scripture references to back his points. I learned a lot...slowly. The book has over 300 pages and then 9 appendices. I usually give books away after I'm done reading them so that someone else may benefit from them. I'm keeping this book to use as a reference.
