Book Description

The Secrets to Finding, Nurturing–or Being–an Irresistible Man.

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


From the Trade Paperback edition.


Editorial Reviews

Review

“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 God’s perspective. Every man wants to be ideal, but not many know what it takes to be God’s ideal man. In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man identifies God’s 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, he’s 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 man—woman 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.”
–Neil Clark Warren, Ph.D., founder of eHarmony.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reading for Men and Women! May 29, 2004
Format:Paperback
So much has been shared about the Proverbs 31 woman. This "superwoman" has intimidated many women through the years. Often readers forget the Proverbs 31 woman had a very supportive husband. In verse 28 it says, "Her children respect and bless her; her husband joins in with words of praise (The Message; emphasis mine)."
In her latest book, In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man, Michelle McKinney Hammond goes through a list of characteristics a Proverbs 31 man should possess. Unlike some of her other relationship books, this one was not written with just one particular group in mind. Men and women whether married or single will benefit from the principles addressed. Some principles seem unattainable, but Michelle emphasizes God strengthens people through the Holy Spirit to fulfill their current or future roles as Proverbs 31 mates. Thought-provoking reflections and further study ideas are provided at the end of each chapter for each gender and couples.
This was a well laid out and thoughtful book. The book is definitely not just for men or single women in search of a mate. For those who have been married for a while the principles presented will serve as a reminder "nothing is impossible" with God.

If you have read the previous works of Ms. Hammond, have a true relationship with God, know something about yourself and what you desire in a godly mate, then this book will assist you in clarifying what you need. It will also bring clarity to your role in the relationship whether you're male or female. With discernment you are able to identify which information applies to you, even if you are without your mate. This is an excellent book for single males, females and a definite must for godly couples. God has a purpose for the marriage relationship. Here Ms. Hammond helps us to begin to grasp His concept.

The Proverbs 31 woman is the proverbial standard that most women strive to be - yet sometimes secretly cringe at how far they have to go to meet the standard. What about the mate to this awesome woman of God? Is he just hiding out under her shadow? Or is he the leader, protector and provider who "has got it going on" - if so, how did he get there?
In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man: The One God Approves and Women Want (WaterBrook) is the synopsis of what author Michelle McKinney found in her search of the scriptures. Her lyrical writing style digs into God's Word to see what the Proverbs 31 man had to do in order to nab the Proverbs 31 woman. Which came first the chicken or the egg? To Hammond, it doesn't matter. She writes to men and women, single and married encouraging them to reflect the image of God.
"There are many dimensions of man that must be developed in order for him to become the extraordinary man whom every woman seeks and whom God smiles upon," says Hammond. In Search The Proverbs 31 Man affirms the God-like qualities men aspire to have: integrity, purpose, faithfulness, diligence, kindness, wisdom and an intimate relationship with God - and makes it all so simple and achievable. This book also helps women understand their role in the process. For women, this book is like the companion to Hammond's other book, The Power of Femininity. For men, it's like a constant faith builder and blueprint for successful relationships.

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish I had known then what I know now.... May 1, 2007
Format:Paperback
I wish I had known then what I know now.....

"No man skips the process of transformation except by his own choosing. All must first be broken before becoming a worthy vessel that can please God and gain honor in the eyes of a woman." Michelle McKinney Hammond

This book is truly off the hook and has helped me severely in becoming the apple of God's eye, not to mention hindering my sabotagemental attempts in jacking my chances of an everlasting and anointed love affair.

Hammond lays the cards out on the table and they are stacked in favor of any Christian man or woman in search of their P31 counterparts. The author spells out in detail what a man, whether he eats meat or quiche, is like in living color.

At first I thought that I could not measure up to this supergodly guy, but as I read on, I had realized that I possessed the requirements all along; a deep love for Jesus, a desire to be loved and to love, and a healthy prayer connection to the Heavens.

This may seem like I am boasting but I am not. This book has simply opened my eyes to the qualities deep within my bosom, of which God has planted... (hint), while re-adjusting my rudder and exposing the tremendous love the Lord has for me AND for YOU!!

You'd think this would be a book that would try to rattle the cages of men and say "shape up or ship out gentleman!!" NO, she doesn't. She is wonderfully fair and constantly reminds women that men are human as well. On the other hand she clearly states that men must have a purpose here on earth before they can meet the chosen vessel God has planned for them.

A must read for ALL...

Michelle's ministry began many years ago when she suffered a devastating leg injury from being hit by a car.
