What will you say when that certain young man sits down in your living room, sweaty-palmed and tongue-tied, and asks permission to marry your daughter? What criteria should he meet before the two of them join together for life?

Fortunately, God has given us a clear picture of the role of the husband/father in the home, and in What He Must Be...If He Wants to Marry My Daughter Voddie Baucham breaks this picture down into ten desirable qualities. Not only should parents of young women seek these qualities in a son in law, but parents of young men should strive to cultivate these qualities in their sons.

Baucham, one of the architects of the Family Integrated Church movement, follows up his popular book Family Driven Faith with this compelling, down-to-earth apologetic of biblical manhood.

"Voddie Baucham believes that fathers have a significant responsibility to protect and guide their daughters as they prepare for marriage. One need not agree with everything in this book to benefit greatly from the practical wisdom contained in its pages. As the father of two teenage daughters, I plan to keep this book close at hand." - Andreas Kostenberger, author, God, Marriage & Family
