Publisher's Description

Living Bold as a Christ-like Man

"Recovering nice guy" Paul Coughlin points the way for al men who yearn to live a life of boldness and conviction--like Jesus. Using humorous examples from his own life, powerful and poignant stories, and vivid examples from contemporary culture, Coughlin shows how he learned to say no to the "nice guy" syndrome.

After all, Christian nice guys aren't always so nice. In the name of appearing Christian by being agreeable, they can lie, keep secrets, manipulate, duck responsibility, and much more. Using the biblical model of Christ as his example of a real man, Coughlin shows men how to become both gentle and bold.

A powerful challenge and a hopeful message that elevates the true biblical model of manhood above prevailing views in the church and contemporary culture, this important book helps men discover who they are in Christ and how to live for Him.

    Fantastic, powerful insight into the problems presented when Christian men are taught and ultimately live as nice men rather than good men who are able to embrace all that God meant for a man to be. Great book

    This book is helping me be the man that God created me to be. I accidentally stumbled upon this book while listening to some focus on the family podcasts and am so thankful I did. I had long been suffering from being a nice guy and this book showed me that there is hope and that we were not meant to live small. I had chocked my relationship with God and others and was living a very unsatisfying and sinful passive life. I am now on a journey to discovering the full rich and beautiful life God has for me, and without this book I do not know if I would have ever made it on this journey. Thank you Paul. I highly recommend that everyone reads this book.

    This review was written for No More Christian Nice Guy.
    I wrote a very positive review for this book years ago. For me, this book hit a lot of good points about what went wrong with the church's teachings and the twisted perception of Christian masculinity.However, I have tried applying this book to my life. Years later, I can say that I have rejected every change that had resulted from the reading of this book. I believe that the message had been tainted somehow, but I cannot pinpoint it exactly (a message, even if good, cannot edify if the speaker is uncrucified). I agree with most of his points, but this book did not help me spiritually and has actually damaged my witness. That is my objection. This is not the path to the Godly manliness that Christ portrayed.
