After several years of seeing this book on the book shelves at my local retailer and hearing good things about it, I figured it was time to read Every Man's Battle by Stephen Arterburn and Fred Stoeker. I had not heard much about the content other than it is a must read for men and young men should read Every Young Man's Battle. What I appreciated from the start with this book is the blatant honesty with which the authors tackle a very difficult subject. Often messages and books will dance around this subject matter and not give you the details. This book is different and to me was refreshing. There are six parts to this book and the first two deal with the explanation of who we are and how we got to where we are with candor that is unprecedented. Sharing stories along with the facts grips the reader from the start. What I appreciated most though was the following 4 parts that summarize victory over the battle. Some of the simplest things that men, including myself, take for granted as "normal" are challenged. There is great Biblical counsel as well throughout the book and the authors are intentional about laying a foundation of faith in this battle; without it their is not victory. I would love to lay out some of my favorite principles in this review but they would take awhile to explain. Do yourself a favor and get this book men; it will have an impact on how you see the world and how you view women that will last a lifetime.
I received this copy of the book as part of the Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group's Blogging for Books program in exchange for an honest review and was not required to give a positive review.
