This book is a welcomed first because it is a Scripturally based, systematic and practical work for today's women. Within its pages is a detailed portrait of a godly wife. Not only is the standard high and holy, but the author demonstrates that by God's grace it is attainable.
It is broken up into four main sections: the first speaks of a wife's understanding in different areas; the second talks about her responsibilities, the third delves into biblical submission, and the last discusses special concerns like anger, fear, loneliness and sorrow. This is applicable especially for young wives because it works through issues that they may not have a good grasp on yet.
NOTE: We have received concerns from people we respect about the last section—if you read this, please remember that while reacting to others sinfully in anger is a bad thing, there is such a thing as righteous anger!
