The Lord Jesus Christ said, “…look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest” (John 4:35). However, one field is rarely looked on by the institutional church: the field of spiritually-indifferent men married to Christian women.

While their wives have the greatest potential to reap this harvest, they may be new in the faith themselves, or unequipped with training pertinent to their specialized mission.

Unbelieving Husbands: the Neglected Harvest fills that need by coupling biblical principles with exercises to make them applicable to individual marriages.    

Ann Velia’s book fills a definite niche in the church world. For women wanting to do God’s bidding in a difficult circumstance, this book offers a definite strategy for the believing wife living with an unbeliever. From the fascinating story of Lottie, Bud, and Harriet, to the scriptural principles revealed, the reader keeps turning pages to learn more. Personally, I gleaned much practical knowledge as well as new biblical insights by reading this book.

Upon reading this book, I was amazed how lovingly and accurately the word of God was infused into its pages. The thought-provoking exercises can lead the reader straight through to the heart of God for all unsaved loved ones, and especially for husbands. You will gain a fresh and faithful perspective as you read, and rise above frustration and doubt. You will gain God’s perspective and peace by allowing God’s word to minister both to your needs and your husband’s.
