Well, I am thrilled to say that I am finally done preaching to our men specifically! What a relief for us huh, guys? I have been greatly encouraged by your feedback and the reports that many of our men have given regarding how this series has helped their marriage, things they are doing to better lead their home and how they are growing spiritually. I have been asked about some books that will serve as resources for you in the coming days. Below you will find some very good books on the biblical role of manhood as well as marriage. I hope they serve as great blessings to you:

The Complete Husband by Lou Priolo: In my opinion, this is the best book on the biblical role of husbands by far. Now I must warn you, it is very convicting, and it is for the believer who desires to know and behave the Word of God.

The Exemplary Husband by Stuart Scott: Another excellent book on the role of husbands - but it certainly isn’t any better than the book above. For those of us that make reading a discipline in our life…Priolo’s book is shorter. 

Love That Lasts by Gary and Betsy Ricucci: This is a book about marriage but it has a section on the roles of men and women. It is gospel focused, and covers multiple facets of marriage.

I also would recommend anything by Steve Farrar, John MacArthur, John Piper on any subject - but they have several books and articles that cover roles. A good website that you can find book reviews and much more information on is http://www.cbmw.org/

Comment if you have any questions or additions.
