I can honestly say that this is one of the best books I have ever read in regard to godly living. The unique aspect of this volume is its practical `how to' approach to daily life. I especially appreciated the exercises in the appendix section. These exercises [and others scattered throughout the book] provide the sincere disciple with actual acts of righteousness that can be practiced. The various charts also provide an organized plan to keep track of progress. Help is to be found in every area of imaginable difficulty from financial management to selfless sexual intimacy with your spouse. The theological explanation of the role of the husband is done at the outset of the book with great care and simplicity. The reader is challenged as to his view of God and his willingness to live his life in submission to the Word of God. That priority of worship is consistently brought under pressure as the husband faces opportunities to lay down his life daily on behalf of his wife. According to Dr. Scott, `The Exemplary Husband' "has no trouble in asking forgiveness because they want to be peacemakers" [p.190]. This book not only teaches the husband how to recognize sin and shortcoming in his life, it also teaches him how to deal with it biblically. As a pastor engaged in regular counseling, I have found that most Christian men have real difficulty as they attempt to discipline their time within the priority system that God has set forth in His Word. This book can play a vital part in bringing some accountability into that area. True believers want to live a repentant and godly life, however, in many cases they don't know how to begin and maintain the process. In the `Exemplary Husband', the seeking heart will find concrete answers from the Bible explained in a very useful way. I was personally convicted and encouraged to grow in my relationship with God and with my wife as I read this volume.Bruce WalkerPastor, Grace Church of Greenville
I just finished reading "The Exemplary Husband". I cannot thank Dr. Stuart Scott enough for this book. It is so thorough. I will read it again and again. The book has so much in it that it should be read slowly to really absorb and capture the Biblical perspective for the husband. Dr. Scott's extensive use of Bible exerpts is the core of why this book works! Finally, I am beginning to understand the the true role of the husband. My wife and I are Catholic and I used to have pretty much an "I'm the boss" attitude or "you should listen to me because I am the husband". I must admit that at first, parts of the book were a little hard to swallow - especially with respect to intimacy and lust. But after careful prayer and reflection I have come to understand how selfishness can really destroy a relationship and even one's feelings of self worth. "The Exemplary Husband" has been so helpful for improving my relationship with Christ, God, and my wife. This book should be mandatory reading for all husbands. This contemporary book is one of the most valuable tools any man could have to help insure marital harmony. Thank you Dr. Scott!
As a skeptical Christian man of anything "How to..." I have found this book to be helpful in establishing a good foundation for men to lead their family. I can see this book as a great book for someone that is completely broken by doing family their own way and truly seeking to get some help from God. Men often wonder why our families don't follow - perhaps we are not leading in the right way.
Stuart Scott's book, The Exemplary Husband, repeatedly holds forth God's standards for what makes for an exceptional husband. As it is based on God's Word, much of it is convicting. I can't imagine many husbands reading this and saying, "Yep. Got that! " "Doing good there!" This book meets us at our basic selfishness, shows us what God requires instead, and then shows how such things are possible with the Holy Spirit's help. This book will be helpful not only to the one whose marriage is having challenges, but also to the one who thinks things are going well.
This book is perfect for any man wanting to be the husband we are called to be. I like how it is filled with scripture on nearly every page that goes with the topic being discussed. This book opened my eyes to the secret of being an exemplary husband....it's to follow Christ.
This book is exactly how I titled it. As a matter of fact, I know of several pastors that use it for relationship counseling. It's not just for married men, but single men also. I think if would have read this book before I got married, I wouldn't have made the many mistakes all men make when it comes to understanding women. No, it's not going to make you a genius, but it will tell you how God wants you to be as a husband and companion. It is definitely Bible based, so if you do not want to know the truth about being a godly spouse, read it anyway. I highly recommend it.
An Incredible book. Read this and you're be an incredible man. It takes a whole lot of patience to build a marriage. Women are crazy and so are we. (Just not as crazy). It talks about everything from how to deal with being frustrated to how to have a good time with you wife. It's very practical, for non-christians and Christians alike. If you like this checkout Love & Respect by Emerson Eggerichs.I guess the bottom line is: Do you want go through hell in your marriage or have a hell of a marriage. If you want the latter, you've got to get in a good strong community of happily married couples or read this book. Or both.
