I Promise to Hate, Despise, and Abuse You until Death Do Us Part Marriage in a Narcissistic Age
ISBN: 0615406564 Bookend Publishers, Inc.. 2011 Christian counselors recommend this book about difficult narcissistic husbands and how they affect you, your family, your church, and your social life. You can read books about narcissism but not many from a Christian perspective. Have you ever thought of divorcing your husband but struggle with your church's stand against divorce? You really need this book. This book discusses the divorce texts in the Bible and explains why the Bible permits you to divorce your narcissistic husband and also remarry if you choose. Please stop letting your husband or even your church misuse these Biblical texts to keep you locked up in your destructive marriage. God never intended for you to be a verbal or emotional punching bag, and this book will free you to leave or divorce your narcissistic husband. In this book, you will also read about the Christian teachings of male headship and female submission and how your narcissistic husband can use these teachings to control and manipulate you. This book exposes him and demonstrates that the Biblical teachings of male headship and female submission are not about domination and control but all about providing what you need to become the wonderful person you were created to be. If you choose to stay with your difficult husband, this book gives you strategies for how to deal with him. If you decide to stay, you definitely need these strategies to survive him and his destructive narcissistic behaviors. Order this book and read it.

By Philosophy & Empty Deceit: Colossians As Response to a Cynic Critique. (Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement Ser No 118)
ISBN: 1850755590 Sheffield Academic Pr. 1996 This book identifies Cynic philosophers as the opponents addressed by the epistle to the Colossians. This identification permits new solutions to old interpretative problems in Colossian studies. In particular, Martin offers a new translation and interpretation of Col. 2.16-23 as well as other problematic passages. Martin contends that the author of Colossians contrasts the hope of the gospel with his opposition's empty deceit and emphasizes important distinctions between Christian ethics and Cynic ethics. The study concludes that Christian ethics as articulated in Colossians transforms societal structures instead of simply rejecting them as Cynic ethics did.
