It is culturally confusing to be a man today. Between the opposite extreme messages men receive of having to be either an aggressive tough guy, or an accommodating passive one... most men are looking for a different way.
When Christ calls us to follow Him, He paves a path that isn't defined by our cultural expectations of masculinity. Instead He blazes a middle trail that leads us to a more intimate relationship with Him-out of which we can be more fully who He has created us to be. By looking at history, our culture, the clichés of manhood, and what intimacy with God looks like-this short book will offer up hope and a new perspective for men (and women) to rethink what it means to be a man in today's culture.
GmoneyAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Best Men's Study I've Ever Done!April 3, 2014GmoneyAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I can't tell you how perfect this book is as a study with other men. As an associate pastor I've been in my fair share of mens studies and this easily takes the cake. The short chapters make it so every guy reads every week and because there's no homework no one shows up feeling unprepared. I think as men we've got enough going on and as I pastor I think most men are overwhelmed with their lives much less trying to fit a bible study in.
The 3 or 4 discussion questions guide us each week and we are never short on conversation. I have also been very amazed at the amount of openness coming from the guys in my group. Some of whom knew no one upon starting the group!
If you're looking for a study to do with other men, quick looking and order this book now!
AngelAge: 25-34Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5October 16, 2013AngelAge: 25-34Gender: femaleI chose this book, looking for something to guide my sons into the Biblical role of manhood. This was not what I was hoping for. It's not that it was bad, it just wasn't a good fit for me.
Maybe it is because I am not a man that I didn't enjoy it.
The 15 chapters are really short, just a few pages each. I was able to finish the entire book in one sitting. It didn't really go into depth on each topic. There wasn't a lot of meat for me to walk away with.
And honestly, I found the cut out mustache at the end to be really cheesy. I just don't get the mustache craze to begin with though.
