When A Woman Loves a Man Book Review

 About the Book

"The woman was not taken from the man's head to be over him, nor from his feet to be walked on by him, but from his side to be his closest companion, from under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him"-an old Jewish saying.
Just like the rib cage protects the hearts vital organs, the woman was created by God to protect, encourage and love her husband, her God-given rib.
In When a Woman Loves a Man Pastor James Ford explains the significance of God taking the woman out of the man's side and placing her in a position to walk alongside of him as his helpmeet, lover and emotional protector.
This book is written for women-who are either engaged or married-who want to know how to Biblically and practically express her love to her man in the way God intended it to be.

 My Review
I was so looking forward to this book and I was greatly disappointed. It's a small book and it looks very good, I wanted to go into more depth about who a Godly woman is and how she should act with her loved one. 
While I do agree with many of the verses and topics discussed in this book a few things through me for a loop. 
One good example is when the author talks about seeking Christ first before a man and that God is number one. This is difficult to do especially when we get wrapped in our own little world. 

One thing I didn't not agree with entirely:
"I am convinced of this: when a woman loves a man in the way that God wants her to, she can make a bad man into a good man. Moreover, she can make a good man a great man, simply by taking every opportunity to build the man up." (When a Woman Loves a Man)
So an abusive husband will always be made into a good man if the wife always loves him like God wants her to? I understand that this is absolutely possible, people can change. But I don't agree with this statement, it's important to build a man up but he might not always end up being a good man.

Anyway, those are my thoughts. 

It has some good things to take away from and you can add your own opinions!
