Publisher's Summary

All parents want their daughters to marry godly young men. But which qualities, specifically, should they be looking for? What will you say when that certain young man sits down in your living room, sweaty-palmed and tongue-tied, and asks your permission to marry your daughter? What criteria should he meet before the two of them join together for life?

What He Must Be...If He Wants to Marry My Daughter outlines 10 qualities parents should look for in a son-in-law, including trustworthiness, a willingness to lead his family, an understanding of his wife's role, and various spiritual leadership qualities.

Author Voddie Baucham follows up on his popular book Family Driven Faith with this compelling apologetic of biblical manhood. By studying the principles outlined in his book, parents who want their daughter to marry a godly man - as well as those who want their sons to become godly men - will be well equipped to help their children look for and develop these God-honoring qualities.

A must read for any parent.

Just like the heading says, if you have children, this book is the most comprehensive and challenging read I've ever encountered regarding Parenthood.
Dr. Baucham definitely brings the Light of Truth to bear on his readers.

Father's Pay Attention!

Very insightful and challenging read. Bauchaum uses scriptural truth to teach, not attempt to backfill his opinions, as is too often the case.

Parenting or reformed theology

I couldn't tell if this book was for raising and preparing my daughter or on reformed theology. Its concerning when you quote Calvin more than the Bible.

Fantastic

I found this useful to me as a husband and father. I wish I would have had it when j was younger. I ended up teach from it in youth group at church. There is a podcast too that I have listened to 5 times. it is good for teaching my young men and women in my house.

Must read!

This book is one of the most important parenting & discipleship I've read. Voddie Baucham's biblical perspective challenges parents to rethink how they're shepherding their sons and daughters instead of following the cultural norms.

This should be part of every home library

I loved this book and it challenged me so. I am a mom and I needed this book. I only wish the title was something that provoked all Christians to read. The content applies to anyone involved in family matter that involve or may one day involve marriage. Whether it be a counselor, pastor, teen, young adult, older adult thinking about or preparing for marriage definitely mothers and fathers. Sons and daughters and those expecting a baby or child in the home soon.

Wow!!!

As a young woman who was once acustumed to living of the ways of the world, this has hands down been one of the best books I've read with regards to learning to have Biblical standards for my marriage in the near future.

A male friend of mine who's getting married soon told me he was reading this and I was intrigued because I too desire to have a Kingdom marriage. Due to my upbringing however, and not living according to the gospel, there have just been so many knowledge gaps.. ESPECIALLY in the area of relationships and Kingdom-focused marriage; because I just didn't see it growing up. This book however has taught me so much and transformed my mind in som many ways. I love love love that it's back with so much scripture. Thank you so much for writing/creating this book Sir 🙏

Outstanding

Very highly recommend. Very helpful for thinking through Biblical manhood, and some ways to pursue marriage that avoid the pitfalls of modern dating. Great listen.
