Crowds roar with approval when author Wellington Boone explains the title of Your Wife Is Not Your Momma: “You men complain, ‘My wife doesn’t cook like my momma. She doesn’t keep house like my momma. She doesn’t take care of the kids like my momma.’ ” Then he adds to uproarious applause, “ ‘That’s because she ain’t your momma!’
” Publisher’s Weekly gave the book rave reviews by saying the author “paints an engaging portrait of God’s master plan for marriage relationships. The message is simple and, although directed at husbands, is for everyone, married couples, singles and divorcees.” Married for nearly forty years and in ministry for most of that time, Bishop Boone has spoken before an estimated million men in live audiences. He issues a call for men and women to put on the low look of Christ-likeness, and start serving one another instead of demanding to be served. He says this spirit of serving needs to be recaptured by the Church and proclaims as the subtitle says, this will bring heaven to your home.
