31 Days of Fun, Satire, and Deeper Meaning of the Godly Beard!

Is there a connection between hairiness and holiness? Some would say a hearty "Yes!" In fact, the world is in the middle of a beard mania. Events like Movember and Decembeard are becoming global movements and manly sites are appearing all over the internet. Is this just another fad? And what does it say that so many of the most famous Christian communicators have or did have a beard?

Throughout history, Christian men have gloried in male pattern magnificence. Saint Benedict of Nursia wore a superb double forker. The benevolently-bushed Euthymius wouldn’t allow clean-shaven monks to enter his Judean Desert monastery. St. Francis of Assisi had a beard, and now there’s a Pope named after him. He’s clean-shaven, but we’re praying for him.

Of all the great Christian men who wore beards, none stands so highly as the headless martyr Sir Thomas More. On the day of his beheading, the tufted knight supposedly positioned his beard away from his soon-to-be-severed neck, saying: "My beard has not been guilty of treason, and it would be an injustice to punish it."

But of course, Bearded Gospel Men is about far more than beards – it’s about manliness and godliness. Through this 31-day devotional, men are inspired to rise to a higher calling. The humor and facial hair is the perfect means to have a broader conversation about living a faithful life.

So, let’s study some of these famous Bearded Gospel Men!

He’s happily married to his best friend, Michelle, and his writing has appeared in Esquire, Catalyst, Relevant, Huffington Post, Elite Daily, TODAY.com, and Writer’s Digest. Brock runs a documentary production company, is the director of the film Red Light Green Light, and has been interviewed on 100 Huntley Street and The 700 Club.

Aaron Alford is originally from Ontario, Canada.

He enjoys beautifying the world with whimsy, compassion, pipe smoke, and an admirable beard.

    This is a rather unique book as one can tell from the title. I was intrigued by the title and when I read description, I was ready to read it for myself. I am glad I chose to read this book as it is entertaining, witty and educational.

    The premise of the book is the spiritual nature of bearded heroes of the faith; however, the reader quickly should come to appreciate the tongue-in-cheek nature with which the authors have addressed such matters. The book is a mens devotional, and while beards are discussed freely within, it is not a book about said beards but the men who sported said beards.

    The authors, both bearded individuals, take great pleasure in encouraging the reader to grow beards, but more importantly encourage the readers to become stronger in their walk with Jesus Christ. This is a 31-day devotional aimed at men. Each day has a scripture for meditation, a quote of the day and questions to engage the reader so they think about how the man of the man of the day can be an example to the modern reader. In between the days are pages with pictures of bearded men and slogans or quotes of a humorous nature.

    While there is much satyrical humor in the mix, there is also much meat in the reading to encourage the reader to think more deeply about their personal life in Christ. I greatly enjoyed reading this work and think it could be a great gift for the men I know who could appreciate the whimsical nature of the book, at least the bearded men I know.

    I received a copy of this from BookLook Bloggers for free in exchange for a review. The review did not have to be positive, and all the thoughts expressed are my own.
