To wrap up our weeklong series, “Submit One To Another: Christ and the Household Codes,” I wanted to share some additional resources that might prove helpful as you continue to explore this topic on your own, with your family, or with your church group. (There was just one post I didn’t get around to writing this week—one about decision-making in a marriage of mutual submission—so look for that sometime next week.) I’m especially interested in your feedback after this post, as Christian marriage books based on mutual submission can be hard to come by. This list is based on my own reading and also the top recommendations from readers on Facebook and Twitter. If you have a favorite you don’t see, feel free to add it.
Also, if you contributed to the synchroblog, please leave a link in the comment section here! That way they are all in one place and we can enjoy them together. I’ll be travelling this weekend, so I’m not sure I’ll have time to include my favorites in Sunday Superlatives, but keep an eye out.
Thanks so much for your participation in the series! I learned SO MUCH from your blog posts, questions, and comments. Hope to keep the conversation going….
