This is an extremely fast paced book. Pastor Voddie has a point to make, but he will not reitterate and restate the same thing over and over. At about 200 pages, this book by most authors would weigh in closer to 300. Read it slowly, with a highlighter. Read it to and with your family, especially your children. Don't rush through it and definitely do read it more than once.
I'm especially encouraged by the young men at our church who have read this book, and I feel both challenged and encouraged by what it says.Read more ›
The major problem these days is that many people get married without taking the covenant seriously. And when we are not happy or just plain dissatisfied, we divorce and try to found someone else. The truth is nobody is perfect and we need to work at our marriage. I like the view of the author on the fact that marriage is a ministry and raising our children too - we need to instill in them a love for God and a willingness of seeking Him.
The author has definitively some interesting views but sometimes I feel as though it is just too much. For example, in the section where the guy must be a leader - I agree with the fact the ultimately the man should lead his family especially when important decision are made. Don't take me wrong, I think we as spouses can voice our concerns and thoughts about it but the final decision need to be made either both agree on it or if there is disagreement I think the man should listen to his spouse and then decide for the better or for the worse. However, when it concerns who should stay home and who should work - I don't think that only the guy should work and only the woman should stay home. We live in a time where anything could happen.Read more ›
With three daughters under the age of six, many would find our family's passion for careful attention to the courtship process in our daughter's lives bizarre. However, we've been given a passion for guarding the hearts of our children, and doing our utmost to ensure that they marry qualified Christian young men. With growing numbers of families like ours in the church, Baucham has heeded the call and put pen to page to create far more than a simple checklist of 'what he must be'. Far more than a simplistic check-list that potential suitors must go through to achieve paternal approval, Baucham has written a mini-apologetic for marriage, biblical manhood, and yes ' courtship, within one accessible volume.
The stage is set in the initial chapters that lay out the multi-generational vision for Christian families who serve the Lord, the vital importance of covenant marriages, and the necessity for fathers to become involved in the courtships of their daughters. In this foundation Baucham rightly rejects outright the current practices of serial monogamy (dating), in order to protect and maintain purity of body and heart in our children.Read more ›
