Rebekah’s Review

 

Last year I enjoyed a Bible Study which centered around this book, and I enjoyed it immensely.  It is written from a Christian perspective of complementary gender roles and biblical submission to husbands.  The layout was helpful with discussion questions at the end of each chapter.  Study materials are also available.  I appreciated how Martha Peace successfully refutes the so-called “doormat theology” by showing how God has made provision for a wife’s safety and protection in the cases of abuse.  “The Excellent Wife” is not a theology book, but rather a devotional that helps Christian women to see how a biblically submissive woman behaves.  What does that look like in practical terms?  Martha Peace did a great job.
