“Ribbing Him Rightly” by Beneth Jones. Seeking comments on this book.
An ACFJ reader has asked me to seek comments on Beneth Jones’s book “Ribbing Him Rightly”. The book was given to a young engaged woman this ACFJ reader knows. Is the book dangerous? Is it worth reading?
Beneth Jones, the wife of Bob Jones III, wrote ten books. Thousands of people came to Bob Jones University for her funeral in 2019 (source).
Ribbing Him Rightly has only three reviews at Amazon: a 1-star review and two 5-star reviews. The 1-star review says:
It couldn’t be anything except a gag gift. The whole book starts from the premise that women are nothing but a piece of a male, created to serve the males of the species. It is absolutely outrageous and hilarious. What is Not funny is that there are women out there — from a dying generation of course — that actually believe that their husbands must be adored and catered to as if holding down a job and having a family is some kind of divine feat.
Good grief, this is a perfect example of a woman who has never in her life read a book but attempted to write one anyway. (source)
