Never before has the search for real connection between the sexes been more important–or more confusing. Single women want to know what they should ask for–not settle for–in a mate, while married women wonder how they can nurture godly character traits in their husbands. Men, both single and married, wonder what women really want. Both genders are long on questions and short on answers.
Where Can Men and Women Go for Help?
In Proverbs 31, Scripture presents a powerful composite of a virtuous woman. But what about the virtuous man–what does the Bible say about him? Popular Bible teacher Michelle McKinney Hammond tackles this timely and important question, digging into Scripture to study key men–from Adam to Christ himself, the ultimate bridegroom–to learn what God requires of husbands and men, and to lay out a trustworthy model of how men and women can live in healthy, fulfilling relationship.
Find out what you can do to identify, nurture–or become–a truly godly man and mate in In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man.
“This is not a man bashing book, but one that champions the original design for their lives. Women need real men.” –Michelle McKinney Hammond
Hammond works with men and women to mend broken relationships and to help couples find new and purer ways of loving each other. Her previous books include The Power of Femininity and How to Be Blessed and Highly Favored. She speaks at numerous women's retreats and conferences across America, and she is co-host of the television talk show Aspiring Women.
This is not a male-bashing book, although Hammond thinks of men as diamonds in the rough. She suggests to men that if they want to know what women want, desire and deserve, they should first establish a strong relationship with God, who will then reveal insights on successful relationship building commitments.
The author says that women will be both submissive and supportive of their men if the men will clear a path of holiness for them. A lasting covenant in marriage centers on God and each other. No longer does one say mine, but now ours. Commitment to the marriage vows demands that a man have a continuous pursuit of his wife's love. One particular chapter, Picture Perfect Love, explains how a man can pattern his love for his spouse on the model of Christ's love for His church.
This is a book that single men, engaged men, and certainly men can use to strengthen or save their marriages. Read it once, put its ideas into practice, and then take it out and re-read it once a year. -- Dale R. Criswell, Christian Book Previews.com
"Men, if you want to become a truly godly man and husband, In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man is a must-read. Women, if you want to know what to look for and nurture in a lifelong mate, this book is for you, too."
Dr. Greg Smalley, president and CEO, Smalley Relationship Center
"Michelle McKinney Hammond tells it like it is, without pretense or sugarcoating. In her own unique style, she relays simple truths concerning the essence of masculinity from Gods perspective. Every man wants to be ideal, but not many know what it takes to be Gods ideal man. In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man identifies Gods heartbeat concerning men. It points out the fact that a false understanding of manhood can be damaging not only to the individual, but to those for whom he cares a great deal. This book shows you that the Proverbs 31 man is not damaged goods; instead, hes a polished diamond in the eyes of the Great Diamond Maker."
Dr. Creflo A. Dollar, CEO of World Changers Ministries and author of The Successful Family
"Michelle McKinney Hammond never wastes even a second of your time. She skirts no issues, never runs from controversy, and consistently engages her readers in authentic and entertaining dialog. She is so quick-witted, outrageously funny, and she holds your attention from start to finish. This is one of her most perceptive books. It s right on the mark. It goes to the heart of the ever-present manwoman debate, and it weighs in on the side of truth, of what works, and of what it takes to build a satisfying relationship that will last a lifetime. She speaks strongly to men, and she speaks just as strongly to women. As a seasoned clinical psychologist, I find her ideas highly stimulating and unusually helpful."

"Who isnt in search of the Proverbs 31 man? This book is for singles who want to know what character qualities are a must in a mate; for men who are confused by our culture and want to know what kind of man God esteems; and for women, tired of pressuring their men, who want to find the freedom of being a helper and soul mate. Michelle McKinney Hammond helps us discover the power of a Proverbs 31 couple who is willing to do it Gods way."
