FOR MEN ONLY - FOR WOMEN ONLY
We have the admonition in 2 Peter 3:7 that husbands are to
dwell with their wife according to KNOWLEDGE.
I have read many books over the years on marriage, husband
and wife relationships, some, if not most of these books have
been L....O....N....G, and hence quite involved and detailed, so
much so that you have to sigh and think "Is marriage that
Sure, there was much in such books that was correct and
helpful, and I'm not saying you should not read these long
complicated books on marriage, and husband and wife
But FINALLY, I have found in 2007 TWO NEW BOOKS that have
made the subject not only factual, interesting, but also
relatively SHORT! Two books that give you the fundamental truth
and facts on HOW to understand women and HOW to understand men -
what makes them "tick" as we say.
"FOR MEN ONLY" is by husband and wife team Shaunti and Jeff
Feldhahn. "FOR WOMEN ONLY" is by Shaunti Feldhahn. Published by
Multnomah Publishers, Sisters, Oregon
I have to say that when I started to read these two books I
could hardly put them down until finished. I was saying all the
way through, yes, I've known these truths, others have in some
form also written about them, but here it is all put in a
straight-forward, simple, easy to read form. Yes, the keys to
understanding how most men and women "tick" is made simple yet
interesting by this young husband and wife team.
On the back cover of FOR MEN ONLY is this:
FINALLY YOU CAN UNDERSTAND HER! WOMEN: complicated and
impossible to understand? Have you given up trying to "get" the
woman in your life? If so, you are in for a pleasant eye-opener:
She CAN be understood. Even better - YOU can make her happy.
Which will make you happy.
The bestselling author of FOR WOMEN ONLY teams with her
husband to offer men the key to unlocking the mysterious ways of
women. Through Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn's national scientific
survey and hundreds of interviews, FOR MEN ONLY reveals what you
can do today to improve your relationship. And believe it or not,
as Jeff assures men, "It;s not splitting the atom."
What makes her tick? What is she really asking (but not
actually saying)? Take the guesswork out of trying to please your
wife or girlfriend and begin loving her in a way she needs.
FOR MEN ONLY is a straightforward map that will lead you
straight to her heart.
From Dennis Rainey, President, Family Life, we have this:

Today, the phone rang off the hook! When Shaunti and Jeff come
