What is a complete husband like?

Well, for one thing, he doesn’t back down from a challenge!

God has given husbands huge, weighty responsibilities in marriage—after all, they are imitating the role of Jesus himself! To be the kind of husband he wants you to be, you’ll have to radically change how you think and act. . . . It’s not for the faint of heart!

Experienced counselor Lou Priolo takes a frank look at the skills, goals, and attitudes that husbands must develop—and then offers comprehensive guidance on how to do so. This newly revised and expanded manual for Christian husbands will give you practical advice and materials on how to best communicate with, please, protect, and lead your wife.

So take an honest look at this book and at yourself, sit down with your wife, and get the discussion started on how you can be a godly, complete husband.


“Fills a large, empty space on the pastor's and parent's resource shelf. It is simple without being shallow and comprehensive without being tedious. A man will find solid, biblical counsel here on how to know and love his wife. A book to read and return to often.”

—Tedd Tripp, Author of Shepherding a Child's Heart and Instructing a Child's Heart

"A great book about being a great husband. And now, with its updated text, plus application questions and exercises, it’s even better.”

—Amy Baker, Instructor and Counselor at Faith Biblical Counseling

“This practical book helps husbands to love their wives as Christ loves his church, treating such topics as loving leadership, communication, and sexual relations. Oh—and wives are encouraged to read it also.”

—Jay Adams, Author of Competent to Counsel and The Christian Counselor's Manual
