Our spring quarterly emphasis for discipleship is on marriage enrichment. For April and May, the members of GfBC will be looking at two different books:
Men - The Exemplary Husband by Stuart Scott
God ordained marriage between a man and a woman for companionship, procreatioin, and so man would have a "helper suitable." However, God says much more in the Bible about husbands loving their wives than He says about wives submitting to their husbands. He created marriage to be a picture of the relationship between Christ and the Church. Christ was willing to sacrifice His life for the Church, and God expects no less from husbands today.
The overall purpose of "The Exemplary Husband" is to assist husbands toward purposeful and lasting Christlikeness for the glory of God. It was written to be the companion book for "The Excellent Wife" by Martha Peace. Foreword by John MacArthur.
Women - The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace
Here is a scripturally based blueprint for the woman who truly desires to be the wife God intended her to be. This book is based on Proverbs 31:10: An excellent wife, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels." Thousands of women have already discovered the worth of this volume and testify to lives and marriages changed because of a commitment to the principles presented here. If this is a commitment you have made, or want to make, The Excellent Wife answers the difficult questions facing you today.
