Twelve Lies Husbands Tell Their Wives

by Tim & Sheila Riter

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Twelve Lies Husbands Tell Their Wives by Tim and Sheila Riter is an outstanding contribution to the Twelve Lies series. This book considers some of the powerfully familiar lies wives hear and breaks them down to evaluate the meaning and impact of those lies.

Tim Riter, a former pastor, pastoral-counselor, now a conference speaker and adjunct professor at Hope International University, writes with winsomeness and wisdom. Sheila Riter served in the Navy and now works with Celebrate Recovery ministry, serving women who have struggled in their marriages and who have dealt with abuse. A powerful writing team, Tim and Sheila have much truth to speak to the lives of married couples.

Tackling tough issues like headship, procrastination, consideration, workaholism, and health, the Riters share from the vastness of their personal relationships as a married couple, friends, and pastors. Practical and insightful information is coupled with humor and transparency, which any reader can enjoy. Readers will find this book suitable for group study and also contains a study guide.

The laugh out loud passages of this book nicely offset the heavy subject matter. Tim is the mentor every wife wishes her husband had. Sheila is the pastorís wife we all wished we had. Together they produced a very worthy book, which is sure to help many couples break down communication barriers. I highly recommend this for couples to tackle together. -- Suzanne Rae Deshchidn, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

The Perfect book for every husband who's ever uttered the words,

I'm Sorry, I won't do that again.

Marriages can thrive only where there's real intimacy. So why is it that husbands sometimes feel compelled to misstate, shade, or just flat-out lie to their wives? In this breakthrough book for men, Time and Sheila Riter tackle the twelve most common lies that husbands tell their wives and reveal what husbands wish they could really say. Husbands will be relieved to find authors who understand and relate to their experiences; and wives, no doubt, will find it fascinating to learn what's really going on in their husbands' hearts and minds. Let the honest communication begin!
