Christian Men Who Hate Women is a long-needed book about hurting relationships in Christian marriage -- the kind of marriage in which Christian women love men who hate them. Dr. Margaret Josephson Rinck stresses that since the subject of abuse "seems to be such a taboo in the Christian community," it's necessary for us all to become aware of our own views concerning abuse. Rinck examines in detail - how women-hating relationships begin - what happens in these relationships - how both parties contribute to the problem - the role of the church in such a relationship -- She writes that "we need to set women -- and men -- free from the terrible bondage that entraps them in patterns of misogynistic behavior and relationships." Nor should the blame be exclusively assigned to the "bad guy" in the relationship, she points out, because "both the man and woman . . . have learned early in life to respond to pain with different mechanisms." For men and women afflicted by misogyny, Christian Men Who Hate Women offers hope for reversing deeply established patterns of relating to and coping with cruelly.

From Our Editors

This is a book about a tender and painful subject-hurting relationships-in Christian marriage, more specifically the kind of marriage in which Christian women love men who hate them. People ask why I have written this book. Some (men) in my workshops have speculated as to whether I hate men; why else would I write about this topic in such detail? They apparently assume that exposing this issue to scrutiny implies a dislike or disdain for the male gender. Other people wonder whether I have written from personal experience: 'Is her father or husband a misogynist (a man who hates women)?' According to these assumptions, this book is either a way of avenging myself or a therapeutic working out of difficult personal issues.
