    Good book--good insight.

    Dr. Monroe offers a challenging perspective on the value of women and the intention of God for the female segment of the species. It is a decent attempt to right some wrongs and ills that society and religion have committed against women. It is definately worth the read, and will open your eyes to difference between God's truth and man's culture and religion.

    Real Revelations

    As the title says, "the purpose & power of woman," this book offers true & real insight into why the Lord made woman. Learn to step into your purpose and receive His power & be blessed. Educational & inspiring reading. A moral compass. It also encourages the reader to avoid succumbing to the pressures their friends/peers, unsaved/saved companions ("world") might try to get them involved with. The reader is persuaded to conform to the morals/standards/values of the Lord.

    A Must Read!

    My entire church read this text (the men read the male companion text over the course of a 12-week bible study while the women read this text). It has truly blessed me beyond measure. Dr. Monroe has such a critical read of Scripture and an ability to apply it in a meaningful context (i.e. male-female relationships). I believe I have grown beyond measure. My sister is recently engaged and I plan to buy both texts for her and her fiance with the study guides. I also plan to purchase this text and its companion for males as holiday gifts for friends this year. It is the best blessing I can think of!!! Enjoy!

    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 our Creator.

    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.
