Author: Lou Priolo


A Practical Guide to Biblical Husbanding

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.
