What He Must Be . . . If He Wants to Marry My Daughter
By: Voddie Baucham Jr.
Crossway / 2009 / Paperback
A theological explanation for Voddie Baucham's suitor requirements, as well as a collection of practical advice, What He Must Be... is organized around the five "musts" of what any Christian man should be before getting married. Hitting two sides of the coin, this book is designed to be a manual for readying fathers and daughters, as well as a manual for training sons to become men worthy of marrying. He spends time addressing the importance of marriage for Christians; the need for fathers to become patriarchs willing to be sensitive to-and protective of-their daughters; the dangers of feminism; ways to lead selflessly and with love; the importance of valuing children as a blessing; and a number of other elements crucial to a successful courtship and marriage. 213 pages, softcover.
