Me Obey Him Author:Elizabeth Rice Handford Through centuries in churches holding the historic Christian faith, in marriage ceremonies the wife has promised "to love, honor and obey" her husband. Up until about fifty years ago the men did the voting for the family and his vote was supposed to represent his wife's position as well as his own. In New Testament churches a woman was not all... more »owed to be a pastor or teach men or usurp authority over men. And that leads to the serious question. Should a wife obey even her unsaved husband? Should she obey in everything?
Here Mrs. Handford deals with remarkable clarity and scriptural evidence with this question. In her introduction she says:
"Some of the ideas in these pages may be absolutely new to you and foreign to everything you have ever believed. Hopefully you will find them absolutely faithful to the Scriptures and that they will lead to holy adn happy living. Because this is an area fraught with opinion and prejudice, you'll need to ask the Lord to open your heart and mind to the truth. Ask Him to show you exactly what He requires. Then, if I touch a place of need in your life, you will recognize it, and seek cleansing for it.« less
