he Bible shows us that a key role for a man was to be a husband. Here he could find his place in the family and society, have an outlet for his energies and creativity, and bear the responsibility and authority that God had uniquely suited him for. It is a noble and worthy thing to be a Christian husband. This book is intended to explore this role, which God created when he first brought Eve to Adam. From Adam's Edenic experience, to God's first lessons to him, their outworking in the Old Testament, and then more fully in the teaching of the New Testament, it deals with what it is to be the husband God intended - for Eve's blessing, and therefore for the benefit of all married women. '.The author describes the ways that a Christ-like husband should take responsibility for the well-being of his wife and family. His arguments are faithful to Scripture and relevant to the modern world. In an age of gender confusion in both society and the church, this is a much needed book.' - Sharon James - Author of 'In trouble and in Joy' Colin Hamer has been an elder at Grace Baptist Church, Astley, near Manchester, England, for twenty years.
