The subject of submission is one that is controversial and that a lot of people misunderstand. This book does a pretty good job of explaining what submission actually means, and more importantly, what it does not mean. I find it hair raising that anyone would use Ephesians 5 to justify a husband's physical abuse of his wife, but the fact that the author feels the need to make this explicit means there are clearly people that do. This has to stop!

One thing I would point out, one of the points that the author makes is incorrect. She claims that Genesis 3:14-16 gives women the power to crush Satan. The passage, as any Bible translation will show even on a cursory reading, is that this power is given to the offspring of the woman and that He will be the one to crush Satan.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Guide for Men and Women 28 Aug 2013
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Do you want your husband to cherish you? Do you want to be treated better as a husband? This book is an excellent guide to both men and women. Submission is sometimes a dirty word but this book makes it seem pleasant and almost natural. As the author points out - Jesus demonstrated submission to God and husbands are supposed to love their wives as Christ loved the church.

I believe husbands and wives should submit to each other. This is the unselfish way to live. Ephesians 5:21 says: "Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God."

While this book does not give detailed descriptions or even stories of how a man or woman is supposed to submit it does present various examples of what submission is not. There is also a lot of information about when you should not submit. Like you should not put up with verbal or physical abuse. The author suggests that you remove yourself from such situations. Also there is a good point about not becoming an enabler if your spouse is addicted to alcohol.

Really submission should be a voluntary act of love. I feel this book will especially help women to understand submission but I'd also like to see men reading it too.

Easy to read and well presented in my opinion. Crystal Jones leaves little room for confusion as to what submission is and is not.

This book has really shed light on a lot of questions I've had regarding submission. I love the way it's formatted and easy to read. After reading this book, I no longer look at submission as a form of bondage but more of a means of freedom.
