    Testosterone makes you holy I feel sick. I've just read Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg where Ruth says that her husband Marty was the first man to care about her brain. They had an ideal marriage, each supported and encouraged the other in their careers and each raised their children equally. Now this book. We aren't talking Mormonism or Christian Fundamentalism or the various Christian sects none of whom believe in female equality. We are talking mainstream Christianit Testosterone makes you holy I feel sick. I've just read Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg where Ruth says that her husband Marty was the first man to care about her brain. They had an ideal marriage, each supported and encouraged the other in their careers and each raised their children equally. Now this book. We aren't talking Mormonism or Christian Fundamentalism or the various Christian sects none of whom believe in female equality. We are talking mainstream Christianity (but I have to say none of the many Christians I know would identify with this. Or perhaps not in front of me... I'm very fierce). "The authors take on the "dominant wife", "weak husband" relationship, proving it to be unbiblical and showing how couples can reconcile. This is a brave venture in a liberal world where, even, mainstream Christians are embracing relational feminism that renders male leadership "old fashioned" and a "failed experiment". "What if I’m laid-back and my wife is… not? How can I lead when I feel emasculated?" Why are women to be brainwashed from birth that their Deity of choice has decreed a life of servitude and inequality to males who must be worshipped, whose desires, needs and domestic chores must be taken care of? That their wishes, lives and aspirations just don't count and cannot be exercised unless the man in their life "allows" it? Surely this is just an enduring social setup to ensure that men don't have to do the chores, look after the children and generally be a support system while they do exactly as they please? Why are men happy with this? Why don't they, like Marty Ginsburg, want an equal partner? As long as women are subordinate they are wont to use manipulation to get what they want. This inequality means that no true friendship is possible, you can never be sure that the subordinate isn't just saying things to maneuvre you into some position where they can get what they want. When I see sites like blue pill/red pill and the patriarchy and books like how to pick up women and have sex with them the first (and only) night, I think this attitude is quite commonplace. Luckily I don't think I know any men like this. Submission ought to be a grown-up game played in bed just for fun. Not a lifestyle enforced by peer pressure of a Church, family and friends and the knell of eternal damnation by an unforgiving and very domineering male Deity held over them. Read the reviews of this book. I hate them all and sometimes I do wish there was a down-vote button.

    Good, sound, biblical advice. Just seemed over dramatic to me.

    Jeffrey McDowell

    I would rate this 3.5 stars. I believe there are some excellent concepts raised; however, the tone of the book in regards to fierce women is that these women are like lit firecrackers with a short fuse who need to be handled extremely carefully. That being said, there are a number of take away which are beneficial for marriage.

    A few years ago, my husband and I found ourselves sitting in the office of a Biblical Marriage Counselor. We didn't have any deep issues that we could identify-no affairs or abuse or anything like that-we just couldn't seem to get on the same page. In his wisdom and discernment, our counselor recommended that I read the book "The Power of a Soft Warrior: Fierce Women" by Kimberly Wagner. This book was so revealing to me about myself. My parents always told me I was their 'strong-willed child' bu A few years ago, my husband and I found ourselves sitting in the office of a Biblical Marriage Counselor. We didn't have any deep issues that we could identify-no affairs or abuse or anything like that-we just couldn't seem to get on the same page. In his wisdom and discernment, our counselor recommended that I read the book "The Power of a Soft Warrior: Fierce Women" by Kimberly Wagner. This book was so revealing to me about myself. My parents always told me I was their 'strong-willed child' but I didn't realize that I had grown up to be such a 'strong-willed wife' or as Kimberly puts it, a Fierce Warrior. The Lord really used this book to help me put myself in check. When I heard that the Wagner's were writing a book directed to men I was thrilled! I couldn't wait to present it to my husband for him to get a glimpse into this side of my fierceness and how he can respond to me in a Biblical way. He was so thankful to have this practical advice to challenge him in our marriage. The Wagners tell their story (the good, bad, and ugly) in such a raw, honest way. They use the acronym P-R-O-T-E-C-T-I-O-N in order to share the steps that are helpful for men who are learning how to become a servant leader in their marriage. My favorite letter in this acronym is the first-P for Prayer. One of the problems in our relationship was that we had a relationship with each other and we both had a relationship with God but we didn't intertwine those relationships very often. Prayer is THE WAY to do that! My favorite quote from the book is "Humble confrontation issued out of love, and with the motive of spiritual restoration, is true spiritual leadership." That was so challenging to me to only have confrontation for the sake of restoration and only when it's issued out of love. I would encourage anyone who is reading this review to remember that this life is a vapor. We will be in eternity before we know it. Let's decide today that we will allow our marriage to be a message-a message that speaks of God's goodness and faithfulness so we can draw others to Him. Lord, find us faithful!!

    A worthy read, irregardless of your relationship status. The authors take on the "dominant wife", "weak husband" relationship, proving it to be unbiblical and showing how couples can reconcile.

The authors take on the "dominant wife", "weak husband" relationship, proving it to be unbiblical and showing how couples can reconcile. This is a brave venture in a liberal world where, even, mainstream Christians are embracing relational feminism that renders male leadership "old fashioned" and a "failed experiment". These types of "relationship helpers", are never a "cure all" and aren't meant to be, but this does acknowledge the problem and gives it a biblical reference point. If nothing else, this book breaks the illusion that; there is only one type of Christian marriage and that is a happy one. Anyone old enough to think about a serious relationship is old enough to read this book. I would not hesitate to give this to a young adult. Such a book would help young and old to think more relationally and understand the problems that come with living together. An excellent entry in anyone's spiritual toolkit

    I wish I had found this book 30 years ago Many men struggle with wives that leave them feeling incapable of ever pleasing their spouse. This can result in a life spent walking on egg shells, a very unhealthy and unhappy existence. So what is a Christian man supposed to do in a marriage to a strong woman? This book helps answer that question! I have seen this book, and the companion book, Fierce Woman, have a tremendous impact on the marriages of others.

If you think that you may be married to a fierce woman, or if you think you are a fierce woman (and reading this review for your man), I strongly recommend that you read one or both of these books.

    This book is incredibly helpful, and if you read it you'll see that having that opinion is not particularly complimentary of me. If you are looking for a book to tell you what your wife is doing wrong and how to fix her, move along, this is not for you. This book challenges you to own your own faults as a husband, and resolve to do better regardless of whether or not your wife makes any changes.

    Helpful, challenging, encouraging. Not a perfect book, but a must read for anyone struggling with a Fierce Woman/Fearful Man dynamic. Helpful meditations at the end of each chapter. Doesn't sugar coat the troubles/evils of an unhealthy relationship. Helpful, challenging, encouraging.

    Good for men even if you don’t have a Fierce wife Good for men even if you don’t have a Fierce wife since the Biblical principles transcend our personalities and circumstances.

    It’s a marriage book unlike any other. It’s specifically for the scenario of a strong women, so strong they use the word “fierce”, and a more naturally easy-going guy. Written by a couple, Leroy and Kimberly Wagner, who fits this description perfectly, who made all the mistakes, learned from them, and by God’s grace triumphed in Christian marriage. It must resonate dramatically in our day as its impetus was their discussion of what they learned being the #1 segment of 2015 on Focus on the Family It’s a marriage book unlike any other. It’s specifically for the scenario of a strong women, so strong they use the word “fierce”, and a more naturally easy-going guy. Written by a couple, Leroy and Kimberly Wagner, who fits this description perfectly, who made all the mistakes, learned from them, and by God’s grace triumphed in Christian marriage. It must resonate dramatically in our day as its impetus was their discussion of what they learned being the #1 segment of 2015 on Focus on the Family. The book barely touches on how we may have such an increase in this type of marriage situation, things like the gender confusion of our day, and just focuses instead on what two people who love the Lord must understand. This book is geared toward the men, how they have failed even if she is too strong, and how Servant Leadership can be brought to bear to get the Christian marriage we sincerely want. One of the biggest failures a man in this type marriage can do is be so passive he checks out. It actually leads to making her more fierce and he carries some blame. The key is fixing your part, taking your responsibilities and doing it for Jesus’ sake if you can’t push through to do it for her. The book is amazing. I assure you it isn’t trite platitudes as some marriage books tend to be, but real substance that you can get your heart and mind around. I give it the highest possible rating. I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    Men Who Love Fierce Women can find light at the end of the tunnel of marital disharmony here. Although the book is written for males, it speaks volumes, for a female like me. From laying the foundation of male and female roles as God-ordained, the book demonstrates how men and women have abandoned their God-given mission, forgotten their identities and allowed the sin of self-will to sabotage marriages. If you are ready to man-up to your facades and tear down your defences, pick this book. Women Men Who Love Fierce Women can find light at the end of the tunnel of marital disharmony here.

If you are ready to man-up to your facades and tear down your defences, pick this book. Women will do well to learn how they can make or break their spouses. The insights are bang on and cut straight to the heart. Nothing could be more truthful than those shared in the chapter on courage and passivity, emasculation and the controlling wife; life with a fierce woman and a fearful man. While differences in personality traits, cultural experiences and upbringing can result in spousal conflicts, the authors Kim and LeRoy challenge you to battle the big three heart issues that cause the downfall of couples. However difficult or unbearable your relationship has become, there is one way to restore it and this book is spot-on with the solution. If you love Christ, you cannot but love your spouse. If you have not yet got there, it’s time to start. The action points, the Scriptural reflections and the guidelines are all the tools you need to winning over and cherishing your spouse.

    Leroy & Kimberly Wagner's Men Who Love Fierce Women: The Power of Servant Leadership in Your Marriage reexamines what it means to be "a man" in an egalitarian relationship with "a fierce woman" -- that woman who challenges traditional gender roles and out-maneuvers men in those areas that have traditionally been associated with masculinity.

Leroy and Kimberly Wagner have come together to share what it means to be a male with a "courageous DNA". They list 12 characteristics that involve that courage. These characteristics are contrasted with the characteristics of "the passive deserter". A key observation in Men Who Love Fierce Women is that women whose husbands flee from their responsibilities tend to up their level of "fierceness". So this book is essentially about straightening out a crooked view of what maleness means. Leadership in the household has little to do with power and everything to do with "servant leadership". Men Who Love Fierce Women continually brings Jesus to a clear view by insisting that men have to begin with Jesus to understand what it means to be a leader and a servant. In the end, the title is misleading, though. Men Who Love Fierce Women is a book that attempts to help troubled marriages. This is a book that deserves a better title in order to capture that spirit and the important biblical themes it highlights. _________________ I received a free copy of this book from Moody Publishing in exchange for my honest review here.

    My rating: 4 stars My review: It’s very hard for me to review a book, as a woman, that’s specifically written for men. Naturally, my tendency is to read it and think how my husband should be reading it, etc. Not good. And though I’ve not read the first book by Mrs. Wagner, Fierce Women, my understanding is that much of the information is similar but with the bent toward the man instead of the woman. So with that in mind, I can recommend this book. For men. Wives – don’t run out and get it for your My rating: 4 stars My review: It’s very hard for me to review a book, as a woman, that’s specifically written for men.

Wives – don’t run out and get it for your husbands, get Fierce Women instead and read it for what you can learn, glean and be convicted on yourself. Then, if/when the conviction comes, you can quietly and gently tell your husband that the book is what helped to change you and suggest that he might enjoy this book himself. So, in short, recommended with the disclaimer that I recommend it to men only. Enjoy! I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. All thoughts are my own after reading the book.
