Bought this volume as a graduation gift, caught by the cover, and have now purchased five more copies. It is well written, historically and Biblically sound, and it "feels" like a book written for men. Clear, concise language and content that is solid, timeless, and equally relevant to our cultural challenges right now. Great addition to the resources for any man who enjoys being a man, loves the Lord and in pressing in deeper, and any man who has a son or mentors others men.
Witty, compelling, and shrewd, Mansfield's Book of Manly Men is about resurrecting your inborn, timeless, essential, masculine self.
The Western world is in a crisis of discarded honor, dubious integrity, and faux manliness. It is time to recover what we have lost.
Stephen Mansfield shows us the way. Working with timeless maxims and stirring examples of manhood from ages past, Mansfield issues a trumpet call of manliness fit for our times.
"My goal in this book is simple," he says. "I want to identify what a genuine man doesâ€”the virtues, the habits, the disciplines, the duties, the actions of true manhoodâ€”and then call men to do it."
MANSFIELD'S BOOK OF MANLY MEN is a book I am looking forward to giving to my son for Christmas. He is the one who discovered Mansfield's website and frequently visits it, hoping to gain wisdom from a biblical perspective on how to be a man of honor. I knew when I saw this book that he would absolutely love it.
This book is hardcover, very masculine looking, and stock full of quotes from preachers, bible, maxims, and more. There are three different parts in this book:
Part I includes the "beginning" or introduction, and several maxims.
Part II includes different traits such as Honor, Friendship, Quest, Humor, Integrity, vision and more
Part III includes quotes, and lists ten essential books and movies for men
