A Beginner’s Guide to Proper Husbanding: A Handbook for Men Married Fewer than Seventy Years invites men of all ages, whether they are married or considering marriage, to look to God’s guidance in the Scriptures for the wisdom they need to embrace their responsibilities to their wives and children to serve as priests, protectors, providers, partners, and parents. Author Randy Turnbull III presents men with advice, both practical and spiritual, to help them fulfill their callings from God to give themselves to their wives and children out of sacrificial love, just as Jesus Christ has given Himself to the Church.   Each of the five roles receive the attention of a chapter in this guide, beginning with a vivid description of the role, describing the biblical foundations for that role, drawing upon wisdom from contemporary sources, and outlining a series of practical steps men can take to grow more responsible and loving in living out each role. A final chapter digs more deeply into the parallels between Christ’s care for the Church and a man’s care for his family.   Whether you are a veteran of married life or find yourself drawn to the possibilities of marriage and family, A Beginner’s Guide to Proper Husbanding stands ready to help you hear God’s voice speaking of His desires for your faithfulness and His hopes for your loving care and sacrifice on behalf of your wife and children.
