If you have a daughter, this book will scare you.
The book's whole concentration is on subjugating females to males. It's about all the things females are to do to serve the male sex, particularly the husband. There is almost nothing about what men or husbands are supposed to do for their wives.
If the material in this book is correct, why would any woman want to get married? The way husband wife relationships are described in this book is that the relation exists for the benefit of the husband, not the wife. A woman would be better off single than being in the type of marriage relationship this book describes.
If the material in this book is correct why would any woman want to attend church? Her only function would be as a servant to lift up the male leaders of the church. She would be better off spending her time elsewhere where she is permitted to use all her gifts.
This book is the best argument I know for why women should not marry or go to church.
No Subjugation, Clears Away Confusion
Reading this book helped me understand the natural way in which I was created and how I fit into my work world, which is 95% male. In eloquence, the book helped me understand that I am fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalms 139:14) and that all men and women are created after the image of God (Gen 1:27). Through scripture the book proves that both sexes share an equal inheritance in the gift of life. However, that does not mean God does not have a distinct purpose for manhood and a distinct purpose for womanhood. There is no subjugation of women here. Instead, confusion is dimmed as definitions of manhood and womanhood are made clear in the light of Truth (the Bible), and a veil of ignorance is lifted, revealing how the important state of maturity -manhood and womanhood- fit into God's purposes.
I found it to lean very heavily towards a hierarchal view of the relationship between men and women. Men are to rule, and women are to submit to that rule. The authors appear to see women as perpetual children who need to be under the continual domination of men, rather than as adults who deal with men on an adult level. I suggest anyone who reads this books should also read "Discovering Biblical Equality." It gives another view of how the Christians world see the role of women.
