It's Dennis Rainey's favorite question for men. Men face decisions in life that demand courage. Big or little, complex or straightforward, these choices-let's call them battles-matter a great deal. One courageous choice leads to another; tomorrow's integrity depends on today's bravery.
Author, speaker, and radio host Dennis Rainey tackles the call to living, breathing manhood head-on, offering a simple yet powerful vision for what it means to be a man who truly conquers, and truly wins. Using personal stories and biblical principles, Rainey identifies five stages of a man's journey through life and examines his responsibilities at each step. He calls men to step up to courageous manhood.

In the new book Stepping Up by Dennis Rainey, he identifies five stages of a man's journey through life boyhood, adolescence, manhood, mentor, and patriarch and examines a man's responsibilities at each step. He calls men to seize the moment and take action, stepping up to responsibility and inspiring others in the process. It's about embracing courage, rejecting both passivity and cowardice.
MikeMontanaAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A bedrock study for any men's group to consider.August 31, 2013MikeMontanaAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In my opinion, this book along with the DVD sessions and study guide book has to be one of the very best resources available for any men's group today. Identifying 5 steps from boyhood to patriarch, with solid biblical support there is no way any group of men will remain the same after working through this material. It is profound and tremendously accurate regarding the necessary actions which must be taken to become the man God designed them to be. I strongly recommend this product and have every confidence those who lead studies with men will be glad for the scope and information provided.

D Kel1 Stars Out Of 5Politically Correct - way to go!March 3, 2012D KelQuality: 1Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1Rainey actively and purposely invokes and repeats many of the currently popular 'in-vogue' critiques of manhood. He draws heavily from other writers such as William J. Bennett, who asserts that men have 'abandoned their posts' and gone AWOL in their duties. He does this without once acknowledging the cultural forces that have brought this about. Divorced Christian dads know exactly what I'm referring to. Had to put the book down halfway through because of tension.

Way to go DennisJanuary 27, 2012cobbLapeer ,MIAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The book was inspiring and challenging. I have recomended it to many workers, family and friends. My regrets are not paying attention to the details and requirements of fatherhood, and I now see the bad fruit of my choices. This book has great nuggets of truth and will be an asset to any Father that wants to be accountable to the upbringing of His kids. Time is too short not to shoot the arrow straight at our real target.
HisStudentAge: 18-24Gender: male1 Stars Out Of 5Utterly forgettable and lacking in authority.January 2, 2012HisStudentAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 1Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2I just wrote out a very lengthy review and decided to shorten it...here is my problem with "Stepping Up":
It's a book about the brand courage that fatherhood requires. But never once does it call men to be courageous because Jesus was courageous in his death on the cross for the sins of mankind. In short, this book is disconcertingly devoid of Biblical authority.
This is a book about the glory of men, NOT the glory of God.
This is not to say that there weren't small nuggets that I found enjoyable, it was (at times) a very entertaining read. But overall, I think the book fails to compel Christian men to action.
