Today’s society seems to think that women always need to fix the men in their lives.  Men are shown as bumbling and hopeless, and they’re never able to make it.

This book shows men from the Bible, like Peter, Moses, Solomon, and Judas who struggled, but were used by God to accomplish great things.

About the Authors-

Tina Samples works with her husband, who is the pastor of Grace River Church.  She wrote Wounded Women of the Bible.  Dave Samples, her husband, has a blog at

My thoughts-

This was a book I needed to read.  It was very helpful to learn about different men of the Bible, how they were weak, and the great tasks they were able to accomplish.  There were twelve different men, like Job, Samson, and Gideon who were talked about.  I could see some of the men I know in the characteristics of those men. 

With all of the examples and discussion questions I am now better able to communicate with the men I know.  I want to be able to build them up, not tear them down.  I know that all men have great potential.  Women need to build men up, not tear them down.  Society needs to change and this book can help be the beginning.   

I highly recommend this book.  All wives and wives to be should read this book.
