100 Words of Affirmation Your Husband Needs To Hear (Book Review)

By Benjamin H. Liles

          A sweet book by Lisa Jacobson about the words of affirmation husbands need to hear. It's not a matter of playing to his ego, but a matter of treating him with the love and honor and respect he rightly deserves. It's like Paul wrote to the church as well as to wives: "Wives, submit to your own husbands as to the Lord, for the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of the body. Now as the church submits to Christ, so wives are to submit to their husbands in everything" (Ephesians 5:22-24).

           That's the thing, however; we ought to all submit to one another so that it honors and glorifies Christ Jesus the Head and ruler of His body, the Church. Husbands ought to be the kind of men that wives can themselves submit to as husbands lead and show their households--wife, children and all in his presence--to glorify and give thanks to the Lord. I know I diverge off Lisa Jacobson's book there, but it's to make the point that part of the love and duty a wife has with her husband is to bring him the respect and honor he needs.

          The result of that in the end is he is able to both bring her the honor and the ability to purify her in all ways as to make her blameless and holy before the Lord, Jesus Christ. I did enjoy the book and rightly think that this little book will be of use to any woman who desires to strengthen her relationship to her husband. I received this book complimentary from Revell for an honest and fair review.
