Her Hand in Marriage (Douglas Wilson)

  • Author: Douglas Wilson

$12.00 $9.75

The most thorough Biblical explanation of courtship we know of. It puts beyond question that a Biblical approach does not demand “arranged” marriage, but does see parental guidance at the forefront in your child’s selection of a lifelong partner.

The book covers four major themes:
* Parental Authority
* Preparing Daughters
* Preparing Sons
* Culmination of Courtship



The modern dating system is bankrupt. It does not train young people to form a relationship but rather to form a series of relationships, hardening themselves to all but the current one. Recreational dating encourages emotional attachments without covenantal fences and makes a joke of a father’s authority. The disrespect children have for their fathers in this area is an echo of the disrespect fathers have for their own office.

Biblical courtship provides a wonderful freedom. It involves familial wisdom and godly protection. Grounded upon the involved authority of the father, courtship delights in its public connection to the lives of the families. Sexual purity is a great inheritance for a marriage, and part of a father’s job is to guarantee and protect that heritage.

Biblical courtship is a humble affront to the sterility of modern relationships. And as a new generation rejoices in this ancient wisdom, the current waves of broken relationships will begin to recede.
