    I thought the book was wonderful....ItsAgreat cOnversational peice for you and the man in your life. Im, not married but it was great to pick my friends brain who I had considered for a realtionship. There are some things that I was up in the air about. But even that I loved to see a different opinion about, the topic. I also read Understanding the purpose and power of a woman. Well written and highly recommend book for anyone. Im currently reading Waiting and Dating and will soon purchase Single, Married, Seperated and divorced. What can I say Im a fan. I love the information broken down within the pages and even if I skip something thats not relevant to my life right now. I know I WILL reread this book and the other books, and know that this book will bring about an AAAHHHHaa moment... thank you Dr. Munroe

    Powerful Protection

    Men of God have a "powerful protection" when they stay on the path God has set. The author offers insightful information about the Lord's "true" purpose for men. This book was deep & worth the time and energy of reading. It will inspire the reader to be the man God purposed for him to be. A definite moral compass for man to adhere to.

    Men and Women need to read this book!

    This is one book that I will keep for reference material. Wow!!! This book answered a lot of questions for me and I appreciate the way Dr. Munroe incorporates Scripture into his teachings. This book will change your idea (positively) about what it takes to be a 'REAL' man. God bless you, Dr. Munroe!!!

    A must-read universally for all men

    Dr. Munroe captures the essence of why our world has been turned upside down. He states that men have lost their purpose and need to refocus to turn around the family and society. Using practical God-centered advice, this book will help any man regardless of color, creed, or class. This book is awesome and I will be sending this book to the men in my family.

    A Pre-marital Requisite!

    For men and women considering marriage, who have talked about marriage, or for those couples who are engaged, Understanding the Purpose and Power of Woman and Understanding the Purpose and Power of Men are MUST-READS! During our pre-marital counseling sessions, my fiance and I were encouraged to read these books -- and what an eye-opening experience. You will explore and understand issues related to male and female roles and responsibilities, impact of societal changes on these roles, what it REALLY means to be married, and your relationship with GOD.

    Ditto

    The rating above says it all. This is a must read not only for singles and those who are engaged - but an excellent read for married couples as well.

    Every Woman Should Read This Book!!!

    This is an excellent book. I was seeking knowledge about some problems that existed in my relationship with a man that I love very dearly. This book was next to Dr. Munroe's other book 'Understanding the Purpose and Power of Woman.' That book cover did not state that it was for both men and the woman that love them. I am so happy that I chose to pick this one up instead. This is an excellent book. It puts into perspective the problems that exist between men and woman and what we both can do to resolve them if we truly love one another through GOD. I suggest that men, and the women who REALLY love these men ,get the book and read it. You will be more than happy you did.
