I agree with the other reviewers' comments on this website. I have one thing to add if you are a Christian parent. Do not let your daughter marry anyone until her prospective husband has read this book! And make sure your sons read it before THEY get married. The institutional church is so steeped in the traditions of men that most Christians don't even see it. As one other reviewer said, "I knew that the revelations in this book were true, in my heart and my spirit I knew it, but this book gives a well-referenced why." Your children's marriages will go a lot easier if the husband and wife understand that they are on equal footing in every way, that God never intended for the husband to be "over" his wife. Again, this should be required reading for every Christian couple before they get married. Alas, most Christians have never even read this wonderful book that gives so much truth. Thank you, Charles Trombley!
