Comments by readers:
This book has changed my life. It is the most powerful, God inspired, life changing Bible study I have ever been a part of. We saw God working in all our homes and families, as each of us became "Biblical wives."
I recently finished reading On the Other Side of the Garden which I think contains the best, most logical explanation of Biblical submission I have ever read.
Virginia is so insightful that I felt she was looking in my window while she wrote. She wrote clearly and directly, but I did not feel preached at—I felt that a wise, older woman was mentoring me.
