Publisher's Description

A Rallying Cry for Men to Embrace a Larger Vision of Christian Purpose

Vance Brown believes that men today are "discouraged, exhausted, and question their worth," and many fall by the wayside. He faced that challenge years ago but was surrounded by friends who said, "Have courage. God needs you, here, now...this day." Vance heeded the call and as a result has called other men to join his Band of Brothers who follow Christ no matter the cost. Here is a battle plan for men who are ready to do something extraordinary with their lives and heed God's call.

    Men, are you discouraged or broken? Have you even made foolish decisions? Do you need the courage and hope to go on? Then this book by Vance Brown with John Blasé and published by Bethany House is the book you have been waiting on.

    We have here the call for "imperfect, broken, foolish men" to step up in the battle and fight "no matter the cost." Do not suppose, however, that this book is just a pep talk, or an inspirational challenge. This is a realistic view of us coupled with a realistic view of Christ.

    Because of a mix up at my home, I didn't realize I had this book to review till I just discovered it recently. By that twist of fate I had an entire night in a waiting room to devour this book carefully. It moved me.

    He weaves the story of George Bailey from "It's A Wonderful Life" and shows that is the story of far more of us than we'd care to admit. He says this defines many of us men: "all alone, exhausted, weary, bone-tired, questioning our worth, feeling much more dead than alive, courage struggling for oxygen." We have our dreams, or at least we had them. Years and events mingled with some stupidity and we lose hope.

    Amazingly, he also uses the Lord's Prayer to teach us. While it might not be the most exegetically precise thing you have ever read, it really works. It takes you somewhere. Somewhere you need to go. You will notice that he focuses on our relationship with the Lord on the one hand and our Christian brothers on the other. It makes sense!

    He writes well. The illustrations are exceptional. The transparency is amazing. He shares real failure and proves that the Lord was not done with him. What could encourage us more?

    You may be aware that Mr. Brown heads Band of Brothers. Don't be concerned that this book is just a selling job for that organization. While the principles of this book underlie that organization, that is rarely the focus of the book. No, he writes at your heart and life. At least he spoke to mine and I highly recommend this book.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255

    "courage in need of oxygen"

    I have just begun reading it and already I am deeply moved, motivated and inspired to pull up my bootstraps and take on a more conscientious role in the spiritual war that rages all around us...this book is written with, to and for men...broken men, defeated men, men who are existing as "courage in need of oxygen" as the book puts it...but as a woman I am also deeply inspired as well as enlightened about the inner struggles and warfare that tear into the hearts of the men/warriors we love. Please consider reading this book and encouraging the men in your community/church to read it as well. This book is going to, not-so-gently, nudge/push the "shallow enders" out deeper and the "so close-ers" (as the book calls it) to go "into" the canyon and relish the experience rather than stand on the edge in awe of it's beauty ..BUT BE CAREFUL ~ because I am confident that on the other side of reading this you will find men cloaked in war paint with a rediscovered, unique and purposeful battle cry rallying a band of brothers to go into battle... I hope and pray this does not scare you...

    With over 10 years in ministry with men, I would say this is one of the best books I have read. If your looking for a tool to lead yourself or others to a deeper level and understanding of the brotherhood of Christ, then you must read this book. The links for follow up are without question a great way to keep in unity with other men, long after you complete the book. The real life stories, are told in a bold and brave way not found in todays teaching. Buy it today

    In 2009 while deployed to Iraq I started a Brotherhood, taking the existing material and creating a study guide from it using largely my own experiences and situations as reference for our group discussions. The one piece that seemed to be missing from that, however, was the underpinning of where this 'No Matter the Cost' battle cry came from. This book provides that key piece of intel needed to help those of us who struggle daily find strength in knowing that the very foundation of Band of Brothers is not just theory or pie-in-the-sky garbage. It was forged by the very breaking down of men who've counted the cost, cracked open the very depths of their souls and were willing to move forward together; knowing that each one of them no longer had anything to fear. This book provides insight and courage to any man wondering if he has the courage to strike out in his home, his church, his community; living each day forward for the cause of Christ and His Kingdom.

    As a retired educator and school administrator, I have talked to and counseled many tired, hurting, discouraged men, both Christian and non Christian. Many of these men fit a quote from Henry David Thoreau's book "Walden." "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them." Most of these men realize that they were created for a purpose and destined for good works. These same men wanted more out of life but accepted less. Most men wanted to do more, to make more of his life but they resigned themselves to the ho hum status quo of life. They lacked purpose and passion. Many of these men were lone rangers. Even though they accepted life's status quo they longed for so much more, so, so much more. President Lyndon B. Johnson knew what they were looking for and he addressed it in his January 20, 1965 inaugural address. He said "Men want to be a part of a common enterprise a cause greater than themselves." These two issues are addressed in "No Matter the Cost."

    If you are one of the men I mentioned I urge you to read this book and then read it again with a friend. You will find that "Just as iron sharpens iron so one man sharpens another." This book is destined to be a classic for Christian Men's ministry. If you are not a Christian you may still find this an enlightening read. I would also recommend that you read the book "Resolution for Men" after you read "No Matter the Cost."
