“Frequently, married women come to me for counseling because they feel depressed and anxious. They often don’t realize they are experiencing oppression from their husbands; they only recognize the hurt,” a marriage counselor within CBE’s community explained. “This is quite common in the work of both Christian and non-Christian counselors.”
CBE’s new marriage resource is much needed to help heal the unhappiness, even abuse, that can result from an unbiblical, hierarchical approach to marriage that has long been endorsed by the church. And it’s not only women who suffer. Men, too, may feel coerced into a “manly,” dominant role they are ill-suited to or that feels stressful.
This new book will show how the Bible teaches that couples are to respect each other’s intellect, gifts, desires, needs, hopes, and dreams in a life-long, loving partnership. Please help us complete and print this new book in 2017!
