Bob Lepine is the popular co-host of FamlyLife Today, he has an incredible theological mind and is an excellent teacher. He's my boss, a friend, and also one of the elders at my church.
Though Bob is quite the theologian, this book won't intimidate the average reader. This book can be simply described - Bob takes the OT offices of Prophet, Priest and King, and uses this as an outline for building spiritual priorities for the Christian husband.
Recently his book was featured in FamilyLife's award winning ezine - The Family Room. The article concludes with these words:
As husbands, we have been assigned the task of leading our wives on our pilgrimage through earth to heaven. We serve them not when we do everything they ask us to do, but when we understand and cooperate with the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit in their lives. We never see our role as an opportunity for privilege, but as a divine responsibility to lead our wives as they grow in grace.
How are you doing, men, at leading your wives?

And - how 'bout this...wanna free copy? I'll send a free, autographed copy of Bob's book to the first five people to leave a comment, who have NEVER commented before on i am chief. Now, if you've commented here before, you can still "enter" the give away, but the books go first to those who are first time commenters. If, after one week, there aren't five new commenters, then the remaining books go to the others. What a great Father's Day gift this would make... if he doesn't take it the wrong way!
