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.

Biblical Manhood Clearly Taught!

Godly discipline equals Freedom

Voddie’s teaching on raising a Godly family is what I believe most Christian homes need to be doing. He’s right in saying we fall into cultural thinking rather than a heavenly mindset. I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to be challenged and convicted on how to raise a family for the Kingdom!

Arrogant and all around bad

The author is condescending and arrogant in his assumption that no father could raise a man qualified to marry. He also throws in a bunch of random topics that don't seem to work with his overall subject, such as how to raise sons, and racism in America. These seem to distract from his overall narrative, condescending though it may be. The only good part to this, was the reader has a great voice and is easy to understand.... the book he is reading, not so much.

I am convicted

This book is a literal conviction for my heart. Voddie may not be a perfect man, but he writes in a way that makes one not only think twice about their way of understanding the Scripture (s), he also writes in a shepherding manner. He lays out truth in a way that made me clearly understand the sin in my life and how inadequate I am. I am also glad that he makes it clear what “I must be” so that I might walk away knowing where I got it wrong. I wish to listen to this again and not get used to the truths outlined in the book, but get a deeper understanding so that I can articulate this to other men.

Challenging towards Godly excellence in manhood

I love that Voddie Baucham Jr. lays out what he believes Biblical manhood to be and the role a potential suitor, and father should be. As a young man who is beginning to start a relationship, I am thankful that the father of the woman I want to date told me to read this book. I have a better understanding of standard the Bible sets forth for me to be for Gods glory, and the glory of the woman I want to date.

All I can say is Thank You!!

As a young 39yr old man with an 18yr old daughter I always had a picture in my mind of what it would look like to chaperone my daughter into marriage. I had no clue how ill prepared I was. This book has taken away a great amount of fear and has given me confidence to use God’s Word as the only path to proceed through this process. I thank Dr. Baucham Jr. for putting in the work to bring this understanding to men like myself who are willing to listen to and learn what is pleasing to God in reference to being a man of God and giving away our daughters in marriage.

What a Gem!

I really love the narrator and think he does a phenomenal job! Being a father of three girls this book is priceless. Having this book in my phone Will be a tremendous resource for me to revisit over and over. This book will help me using biblical tools to Guide me as young man show interest in my daughters to protect them and help crush the generational sin and my family‘s history. I want nothing more than a godly man to pray Shepherd and protect my daughters after they get married. Thank you Voddie Baucham

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.
