A mature Christian wil not appreciate this book as it twists Scriptures. This is more a philosophy of the author than an accurate Christian guide to marriage. It could also result in a wife being abused. The Pearls advise wives to stay with husbands who sexually abuse their children (although the Bible allows for divorce in case of adultery, which child molestation would be). They advocate that kids also go to the jail to visit the father who sexually abused them, despite what this would do to the child's psyche.
The book also advises women to stay with men who beat them.
The Bible is twisted to fit the Pearls' philosophy, and Scriptures are just pulled from the Bible and randomly inserted in the book so it appears to be a "Christian" book. I would recommend a different book.
