Male headship


I recently read Love & Respect by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, and one of his chapters deals with Male headship and authority. I would really like to read more about this, especially from a Catholic perspective, and am looking for some recommendations. Thanks!


I would suggest you read the papal encyclical Casti Connubii.


Well, PJII’s Theology of the Body. If it’s too much of a read right now, then Christopher West’s books. I know you didn’t ask about sexual relations, but male headship. PJII covers it brilliantly IMO.
