There is a growing crisis among our men and boys in the area of sexual temptation and sin: pornography use is skyrocketing and increasing numbers of men find themselves entangled in a web they can't seem to escape. Yet many men feel greatly misunderstood by their women, while just as many women feel mystified and powerless to help their men. —Mary Farrar, Reading Your Male
Now author Mary Farrar confirms that every woman—whether a wife, mother, or single woman—can play a powerful and pivotal role in the male sexual struggle by entering into her man's world, and:
seeing through his eyes,
thinking with his mind,
feeling with his emotions,
connecting with his soul.
Reading Your Male de-mystifies inner male sexuality, exposes the enemy's tactics in taking down our men, and equips women to use their innate gifts in becoming a man's greatest ally in the fight for victory. Using biblical insight and up-to-date research, Farrar also tackles some of the most elusive questions women are asking today, such as:
Why do men struggle so deeply in the area of sexuality? What are we to think about pornography and masturbation? Why does this generation of men appear to be so reticent? What does a man crave most from a woman? What is a woman's most powerful gift to her man? How can a woman draw out an emotionally unavailable man? What is a healthy view of strong femininity and beauty?
I'd like to begin by pointing out that this is a Christian book. (I didn't find that immediately obvious from the book's title, etc.) This, of course, will be either a pro or a con, depending on the reader's own worldview. I suspect that the majority of the book will simply not make sense to a reader who is not coming from this perspective. With that said, I believe it is a good read for Christian wives.Sexuality is a topic often overlooked by the church today. It's treated as taboo, which means that any information we get on the subject tends to come from a worldly perspective. As a result, men struggle, women struggle with the fact that men struggle, and no one seems to know what to do about it. This book offers what I believe to be a very sound solution, overall.If you are a man who struggles with sexual sin or temptation and wants to be understood, give your wife this book. If you're a wife who wants to stand beside her man in his fight, read this book (and understand that it is, more than likely, not personal! - it's just a guy thing).The general structure of the book was not what I expected and was, in my opinion, a little confusing. But the overall message of the book was one I believe is desperately needed among Christian wives today.read more
