    I don t really know what to say about this book or how on earth to rate it SO MAJORLY SCANDALOUS that I almost didn t put anything online about this, but here we are Ovid was born around 40BC so all this explicit talk about sexual relationships, adultery, abuse, and marriage really sparked a lot of questions for me about cultural, family, and sexual norms in the early church days when the apostles were ministering writing the New Testament I actually think stuff like this is a really i I don t really know what to say about this book or how on earth to rate it SO MAJORLY SCANDALOUS that I almost didn t put anything online about this, but here we are Ovid was born around 40BC so all this explicit talk about sexual relationships, adultery, abuse, and marriage really sparked a lot of questions for me about cultural, family, and sexual norms in the early church days when the apostles were ministering writing the New Testament I actually think stuff like this is a really important read for Christians because this is the culture Jesus disrupted with his tender friendship to women, the culture Peter Paul were ministering to in their teachings about gender and marriage They were not primarily speaking prophetically against the second and third wave feminism of the western world in the 20th century like you imagine if you re only reading pop theology on gender and marriage Better knowledge of the culture of the Biblical days offers a path to better Biblical understanding But really here, I ve been married almost 11 years and let s just say I learned some stuff This is definitely going in the restricted section of our family home library

    Ovid would be proud to know that we are still reading his work I ve read the Art of Love before but only the advice for the men This had his advice for men, women, makeup, Remedies for Love, and other small poems The one for the women was not as good a read as the one intended for the male audience However, in between the large amounts of Greek references, his advice for women had some juicy bits on positions and how to ensnare a man by emphasizing a girl s good qualities In his Reme Ovid would be proud to know that we are still reading his work I ve read the Art of Love before but only the advice for the men This had his advice for men, women, makeup, Remedies for Love, and other small poems The one for the women was not as good a read as the one intended for the male audience However, in between the large amounts of Greek references, his advice for women had some juicy bits on positions and how to ensnare a man by emphasizing a girl s good qualities In his Remedies for Love, though, he tells one how to avoid the trap of falling in love in the first place Surprisingly, he offers that if you are already in a relationship, you are lucky and that you should keep a good thing But if you are infatuated with someone or need to get out of a relationship, he can help or so he says He is down and dirty but he wants to appeal to anyone and be the one that everyone goes to for love problems and all
