The overall goal of this book is to assist husbands toward purposeful and lasting Christ-likeness for the glory of God. He created marriage to be a picture of the relationship between Christ and the church. It was written to be a companion book for The Excellent Wife. Couples who commit to the biblical principles presented in these books will find a oneness in marriage that will give God glory and bring His blessing.
The official companion book for The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace is a biblical blueprint for the mandate God has given to husbands in the covenant of marriage to love their wives, even as Christ loved the church. Dr. Stuart Scott has responded chapter by chapter to the biblical teaching put forth in Martha’s popular book. It is suitable for men’s small group Bible studies, or for couples prayerfully seeking God’s very best in marriage.
