Be a Godly Man
August 6, 2014
If you are a fan of the NFL or Notre Dame you will be a fan of this audiobook. David Chattam Narrates the story of Heisman Trophy winner Tim Brown NFL All-Pro for the Los Angeles and Oakland Raiders. David has a deep mellow voice that captivates the listener and will keep your attention.
Tim shares the story of his life in and out of the NFL. Starting with his childhood and taking you through his life spent in church and prayer meetings. A powerful father who taught Tim good and bad traits of being a Man, and a Godly Mother who kept the family together through it all.
Tim speaks openly about the troubles that can come to a young man. Premarital sex and the consequences of having a child outside of marriage. Tim made sure he was there for his son in the off season and had appointment phone calls several times a week during the football season to stay connected to his son.
Tim speaks openly about his alcoholic father and describes why he never touched alcohol or drugs. Being famous and winning the Heisman does not a Man make. Dedication and commitment to family, your team, and most of all God are Key to The Making of the a Man.
Tim shares his faith in Jesus Christ and how being a Man and leading by example and hard work made him who he is today. Through injury and disappointments God looked out for Tim and Tim gave God All the Glory.
This Audiobook is Published by Thomas Nelson on Brilliance Audio and is perfect for young fatherless men who need some Godly wisdom and advice on how to be a Real Godly Man.
Review: The Making of a Man: How men and boys honor God and live with integrity is written by Tim Brown and James Lund. Tim Brown is a Heisman Trophy winner and NFL player mostly with the Raiders. In his book, he details his own walk of faith in his life and how God directed his steps as a Christian athlete. He admits his failures, but shows how a righteous man keeps getting up and moving forward.
His main failures were in the area of intimate relationships with women, so this book would be best for older teenage boys who will read with maturity.
Through this book, Tim Brown reveals how all men can make the choices needed in life to live a life that is pleasing to God and enjoy the blessings and successes that come with that. The author also makes a strong case for family and especially for fathers being what they ought to for their children.
This book is not a theological book at all, but I believe is meant to be a very practical book for men to encourage them to live for the Lord and let everything else take care of itself. Each chapter deals with a different aspect of manhood where the author gives an analogy from his own life and finishes by showing what God's word has to say about it.
I enjoyed reading this book about a man that I knew very little about. It would be good if I could meet him and shake his hand. (Reviewed by B.Lyons, Teacher)
