What He Must Be

[amazon 1581349300 thumbnail] I came home from the MBI Pastor’s Conference with a monstrous stack of books. Many of them I got for free, this one I purchased. Voddie Baucham Jr.’s [amazon 1581349300 inline] is an amazing examination of the character qualities both of fathers who are supposed to be guarding their daughter’s purity and the perverts guys who may be interested in marrying them. All joking aside I found Baucham’s writing style to be quite like listening to him speak – which if you’ve never done is an exercise in learning to take a rebuke. With little exception he is intentionally biblical, passionately focused on Christ. His characteristic prompt from the pulpit says it well, “If you can’t say ‘amen’ you’d better say ‘ouch’.”
