What does it mean for a husband to love his wife? Three things, says Tony Evans: a husband must be his wife's savior, sanctifier, and satisfier. It is by living out these three principles that a godly marriage will blossom and flourish.
In For Married Men Only, each of these principles is explored and explained using real-life examples. How does a husband be his wife's savior? By learning to love her as Christ loved the church. What about sanctifier? By dying to self and modeling sacrificial love, no matter what the result. And satisfier?
By studying and serving his wife so he can fulfill her needs, just as Christ humbled Himself for our sakes.
I am in the process of courting! This booklet has truly helped me in my role, character and develop towards being a husband! Great read

After 32 years of marriage I have hit a road block in my marriage realizing that I have failed at being my wife's saviour in as much as I am commanded to do. I am now committed and know how to go about loving my wife with agape. For years I thought I could live her through her child molestation and indifferent upbrining by force feeding my ways to her which instead made her feel unloved and unaccepted. That was the past, today is a new day, watch God move in me.
short potatoe... but very tasty i like nooks with much more length but this one was good
When in doubt, read this book. Tony Evans makes a clear and concise argument to build answer establishe you as a husband.
I enjoyed reading this book. it was a challenge to me to put into application the principles but thank God after I got over the discomfort I saw God work through my marriage. the 3 principles works if we just destroy our pride. my marriage is improving by leaps and bounds now. thank you
As a married man of 12 years and as a Pastor, I learned some very valuable truths. If you are a man that desires to be married or if you are already in the sacred covenant of marriage, then I encourage you to read/listen to this book. Strength yourself with more knowledge and tools to be successful in your ministry of marriage. Thumbs up Dr. Evans!
This is a great book! This books help you before and during your marriage! I love this, book!
I was impressed by the quality of this reading. I found it refreshing and informative. I can't wait to share it's contents to family and friends.
I enjoyed it and i will start today in serving her, cherishing her my wife has been through thick and thin with me from jails, rehabs, fights, and disrespect I'm trying to learn ways to love her again. and was searching when I found this book Tony Evans is a great preacher and teacher and one of my favorite authors so I try to get copies or try to see him when it's available I know I will have to read this book over again and put it to work. thanks for the lesson
Listened while making food for my family and cleaning up the house in early morning. Finished entire book which was great because if I had read it it would've taken me a long time. It's short and quick and hits the true points that most of us men use as an excuse and cuts down to home. The ending was very good and true and it's what my life is now and in hopes of what it can become. I love Tony Evans. He is awesome.
