Lee starts at the very beginning of creation, going through the fall and the changes that wrought on man and woman. I loved this quote from chapter 3:
"When gifted with a woman's love, a love so deep that the woman is willing to cede some of her personal power and autonomy to her lover, a wise man will recognize the extreme value of that gift and then reciprocate, giving his love and his life to the woman who loves him. He will not hold on to the power she grants him, but give it back, a gift too precious for him to retain- like keeping the crown jewels in a desk drawer."
But she doesn't stop there. Lee gives a balanced view of man and woman, not bashing either gender, but showing truth to benefit both. She made me think over my own experiences in a new light, held my interest. This was a more thorough book than I expected, and I truly enjoyed it, highlighting several thoughts in each chapter. It is full of scripture references and written with a humble spirit. I would recommend this to other Christians.
"We cannot truly be wise until we work at obedience." (Loc 3518, Kindle)
