What does it mean for a husband to love his wife? Three things, says Tony Evans: a husband must act as 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 can 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.

First published in 2002 as Tony Evans Speaks Out on a Man’s Role in the Home, this booklet has sold nearly 40,000 copies. Use it alone or with the companion volume, For Married Women Only.

I listen to Dr. Tony Evans on a regular basis and thought I'd invest in both books. I gave For Married Men Only to my husband. The books are great gifts before the nuptials. Great guidance for kingdom men and women. Wish I had these books before we got married. Great read for us both. Read full review
