Voddie T. Baucham Jr. Wheaton: Crossway , My desire in this book is to kill two birds with one stone. First, I want to lay out a clear, balanced, realistic, biblical picture of what moms and dads should be looking for on behalf of their daughters and seeking to produce in their sons. In addition, I want to provide a road map for men who have a desire to lead their families biblically but simply do not know how.
What He Must Be . . . If He Wants to Marry My Daughter
W hat does the Bible teach about Christian dating? This past week I had a young man sitting in my office asking me that very question. Perhaps you have never had someone ask you to defend your position on Christians dating. If not, I want to challenge you on this subject. It may save you and your children a great deal of heartache if you will take time to think earnestly about this important subject.
The idea of recreational dating is something that our culture has invented.
Regarding the men, one very helpful resource is Voddie Baucham’s book “What He Must Be if he wants to marry my daughter”. This book.
Husbands should be big dreamers. Men, you should have a bigger dream for your marriage than your wife has for your marriage. You are the leader of your marriage. And men, you should have a bigger dream for your marriage than you have for your work or any other responsibility or interest in your life. Next to your relationship with Jesus, your biggest dream should revolve around how to steward the marriage God has given you—how to best cultivate and guard the wife God has entrusted to you.
One of my favorite married couples is Nick and Sue Lombardo. I met Nick and Sue when I was a twenty-three-year-old waiter living in Santa Barbara visiting the Silicon Valley to interview for a job as a youth pastor. Meeting Nick and Sue was a big factor in accepting the job—I wanted to spend more time around this husband and wife.
Little did I know that nine months after meeting the Lombardos, I would meet Taylor, and the Lombardos would mentor us through our dating and the first few years of our marriage. Nick and Sue were high-school sweethearts—they met when Nick was seventeen and Sue was fifteen. They married two years later. For sixty years Nick and Sue have been happily married.
For sixty years Nick has been dating his wife.

Voddie Baucham has been greatly used of God to call attention to the importance of the family in both creation and the church. Voddie is a friend of mine, and our church has benefited from his ministry on more than one occasion. Some of the best discussions that we had came in the informal times around the lunch and dinner tables. Before our first child was out of diapers Donna and I developed some clear convictions about dating. First, we became convinced that the American practice of recreational dating is a formula for spiritual and moral disaster.
Casual dating relationships seemed to be an excellent training ground for later serial monogamy in marriage. Secondly, we were convinced there had to be a better way. There is. Young people—including young adults—need wise guidance as they navigate those waters, and who better to help provide it for them than parents who love them more than anyone else? Voddie Baucham gets this. Voddie is a gifted writer, weaving interesting narrative around biblical teaching as he sets forth principles for parents who want to serve their children well in helping them get married.
Though he focuses on what women and their parents should look for in a potential husband, the book is applicable to everyone who wants to help loved ones marry well. As the father of 5 daughters, I have been helped this book to think more specifically about the spiritual qualities that a man should be developing if he hopes to be a Christ-honoring husband.
I was also convicted and challenged by Baucham to invest more energy in helping my son prepare to become a faithful prophet, priest, provider and protector for his future bride.
SERMONS – Voddie Baucham
What does it mean when a young man asks a woman’s father for her hand in marriage? I can see it in your eyes. It would have been good for me. The entire American dating scene is not a healthy deal. So, no weak men!
If He Wants to Marry My Daughter is written by Voddie Baucham, Jr., a pastor of Grace But, he is definitely NOT advocating the current dating philosophy that is.
Voddie Baucham does a great job of explaining the issues involved. Post Reply. The video is approximately 40 minutes long. I don’t have time to watch it. On the surface it appears that he is attempting to justify eating shrimp disobedience to YHWH. I hope that this is not the case. Hark, i attempted to read his super extremely long do called statement of faith, it was more like reading a novel. He copied and pasted the short chatecism and other stuff. I could share my faith in Messiah in 2 minutes, that guy needs 2 days.
By the way, who is this guy Voodoo anyway, just a man. Just the thoughts of a simple person.
When I met Phillip, just one day shy of my twenty-third birthday, I was limping on the heels of a really horrific breakup. My heart had been so badly bruised by a guy back home in Texas that I wanted to do anything to get a Sunday away from the sympathetic glances of our tiny community. Meanwhile, a couple of states over in Mississippi, Phillip was making last minute plans to attend the same conference.
Which is a little crazy in hindsight, because, as my mother famously said to me upon meeting him, he was a tall, chocolate bit of marriage material. I agree.
