Publisher's Summary

Finding the Hero in Your Husband is an essential tool for understanding the Christian concept of submission - a frequently misunderstood and often contentious subject. Dr. Slattery combines Christian principles, her professional expertise as a psychologist, and personal experience as a wife in this indispensable book to help women improve their marriages.

When expectations of trust and intimacy go unfulfilled, a wife's anger and fear can result in unhealthy domination and control. The power of a woman's approval and perspective in a relationship cannot be underestimated; it must be directed in ways that promote intimacy instead of destroying it. Dr. Slattery advocates that the key to a successful Christian marriage is a wife's ability to encourage her husband to develop his leadership role in the marriage and her ability to avoid boredom in the bedroom. (The Journal of the American Medical Association reports that 43 percent of women and 31 percent of men are sexually dysfunctional.)

In Finding the Hero in Your Husband, Dr. Slattery uses illustrative case studies and scriptural guidelines to answer many essential questions and explain difficult - and sometimes unpopular- but relevant concepts to help Christian women improve their relationships. Each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and discussion, making it ideal for both individual listening and group study.

    "Disappointing"

    I had purchased this book looking for how to take and shift female experiences of loneliness, the sense of abandonment, male withdrawl, etc and make a mindshift how to find and see one of more attributes of your husband as heroic, and a blessing. This book focuses mostly on the failings of men, the female experiences above, and some sturdy reinforcement about when not to submit, when submission is placation for inappropriate unGodly dominance. I didn't extract even on mindshift, how to find the hero in my husband when my female point of view otherwise does not see it right away. I felt the book was not affirming the positive role of men, but reaffirming all the ways they might let their wives down.
