Dr. Tony Evans has a way of challenging you, as a man, to walk like a Kingdom Man without laying a bunch of guilt on you. Instead he invites you into the challenge of being a Kingdom Man, to walk out the calling and position that belongs to every man. The sports illustrations he uses make it easy to visualize the points he is talking about. It is time for Christian men to stand in the position God created for them, He does hold you accountable for your position as husband, dad, and a friend. God promises great things to those men who will stand and embrace their calling to be Kingdom Men.
This is a book that I would recommend to my husband. Since he does not care to read, I am hoping he gets some time to listen to it on his phone.
Dr. Evans is calling men to fulfill their biblical calling, step up to the plate and lead and oversee as God has called them to do.
Their are things that stand out to me in this book that I want to share though I am sure you will find it very interesting to read yourself.
In this Book Tony reviews that God is the head of Christ, the man is the head of the woman, Christ is the head of every man as well as the role of the church.
He also compares Neo taking a Red pill to become someone new, to a man choosing to accept Gods calling. He explains how this does not mean that you have a dictatorship over your wife.
-Any man who blames his wife for the chaos in his home without simultaneously accepting responsibility for addressing it is publicly declaring his lack of biblical manhood.
He says not to use your pedigree to choose what you will be in life as god will make you what he wants if you choose to let him. He explains that if you are not leading right someone will take your spot just like in a lions den.
Overall I think this to be a great reference for a man who wants to live the life that god wanted him to live.

Tony Evans urges men to get off the sidelines of life and get back into their rightful position in the game of life. His use of football analogy will be welcomed for the man who loves sports. In his three-part book, Evans hopes to help men raise the standard and define manhood according to God's design.
Having read one of Tony's previous books, The Kingdom Agenda, I was quite interested in reading Kingdom Man. Although I'm not a man, I found the book insightful. The author not only identified the problems that result from the absence of properly positioned men but he outlined ways to identify what authentic manhood looks like. His passion for discipleship and mentorship are evident throughout the book.
Using Psalm 128, Tony shows how King David outlines the components of a kingdom man's life-personal, family, church, and community. For each area of a man's life, he provides practical ways to live according to the standards of the kingdom of God.
