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.

Biblical Manhood Clearly Taught!

This book is an exceptional work explaining biblical manhood, I was both highly encouraged, and thoroughly convicted to the high calling of manhood, to live as Christ, Dr. Baucham does an excellent job explaining biblical manhood!

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.

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.

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.

Must read for every high school student

This book is an excellent resource for anyone who want to be successful in life. It doesn’t promote a get rich quick scheme but gives a principle for leading a happy and fulfilling family life.

Excellent Biblical teaching on a complicated subject

Dr. Baucham teaches in a clear, understandable way what is God’s true design for marriage. Furthermore, he unpacks what is one of the most difficult parts of marriage in describing the Biblical roles of husband and wife. Voddie helps us understand the qualities of Biblical manhood, and I now feel we have an excellent outline for not only raising our son but for helping our daughters marry well, so they may experience a blessed, joyful union!
This is one of those books I wish I had read years ago, and will refer to in the years to come for my own marriage, training our children, and Lord willing, our future grandchildren! This book will help build a lasting legacy! Highly recommend.

Every Man must listen or read

I state this review more in a sense of every man must be intentional in how they pursue a marriage in the same way Jesus was intentional in pursuing us. This is not so much a review of the text of this book but an underlying call to raise good Christian men who love the Lord Jesus and are prepared to lead like Christ, love like Christ, and in so doing be like Christ. This book has left me contemplating those things I should be if I want to lead this life. If you call yourself a Christian, marriage should be taken extremely serious and as a college student wanting to pursue this I know that I have a long road ahead of me, but I know from this book that if I am going to be deeply invested in my future wife I must first know how to be deeply invested in Jesus. Otherwise it’s all futile.

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.
