Fellow guys all around you, even ones you already know, have experienced more and lived through situations that you haven't yet known. Is it possible to glean their knowledge and wisdom without feeling like you're sitting through a lecture?

Kent Evans has made sure he has wise guys such as these in his life. They have guided him in the way of wisdom. In Wise Guys, he shows you how to do the same with guys who you know - and he does so with humor and a great deal of stories.

"The Bible clearly encourages Christians to seek after wisdom and surround themselves with godly friends and mentors. As Proverbs states, we can only truly flourish with "an abundance of counselors" (Prov 11:14). Wise Guys is a careful and clear treatment of the role godly counselors play in the lives of Christians. For those who want to grow in maturity and wisdom, Evans' book deserves careful consideration." -R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Kent has written a remarkably clever, humorous, insightful and challenging book that is both readable and instructive. He recounts a host of personal examples accumulated over the years and concludes with 11 practical tips on how to be a better man, a more effective professional and more devoted disciple-maker. I predict you will thoroughly enjoy Wise Guys while you 'unlock hidden wisdom from the men around you.'" -Bob Russell, Retired Senior Minister, Southeast Christian Church

"This is a great read. Kent's practical, down-to-earth and intentional living is contagious. Now it's accessible in this book which will certainly shape how you think and live." -Dan Dumas, Author of Live Smart and Senior Vice President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"I've always defined true ministry as the process of walking through something with God and then being vulnerable enough to turn around and walk someone else through, too. Kent's infectious passion to develop Christ-like men is evident in his writing and you will be both challenged and inspired by this collection of characteristic profiles of men who have gone before to show the way. Bravo, Kent. You are walking us through." -Mark Hancock, award-winning writer and Chief Executive Officer of Trail Life USA

"As men, we're so often attracted to the star of the podium, never considering the incredible people who worked so hard to get them there. But every single one of those medal-winners surrounded themselves with others who drew out strengths and train out the weaknesses. Using personal experiences with the ordinary men in his own life, Kent has written a candid and straightforward book that will encourage you to take an honest look at who you are and how you can get up and win as a husband, father and man." -Tim Sisarich, Director & Host of Focus on the Family's Irreplaceable

"Kent doesn't just give us a list of qualities aimed at 'guilting' us to trying harder, to be better. Instead, he introduces us to a fist-full of men worth meeting. As the quick-to-read stories unfold, we get to know these wise guys. Thanks to Kent's honestly hilarious writing style, you'll drop your guard long enough to want to copy the character and wisdom generously offered in this book, man-to-man." -Darren Walter, Lead Pastor, Current - A Christian Church

"In a creative and fresh way, Kent will set you on a journey of becoming a Wise Guy. His practical insight, honest evaluations, and life lessons will cause you to reflect on how you are engaging with others in your life. An easy read. I'd encourage any man to develop their own life lessons in the way Kent models." -Dr. Dann Spader, President, Global Youth Initiative

"Kent has given us a roadmap for a new kind of organic mentoring - one that's perfect for those of us with little extra time to seek out formal mentoring relationships. He shows us how we as men can sharpen ourselves with the people we already do life with." -Tom R. Harper, CEO of Networld Media Group and author of Leading from the Lions' Den

"As you read this book, Kent Evans will take you on a journey. You'll learn what is required to become more the man God has called you to be. This book is going to get in your head and give you a brand new mindset." -Kyle Idleman, Teaching Pastor of Southeast Christian Church and Bestselling Author of Not a Fan

"Wise Guys focuses on focuses on who you can become as a godly man. It is full of wisdom you can use for every aspect of your life: as a father, husband, businessman or mentor. The examples and principles Kent develops are invaluable. It's easy to learn through the narratives of men who have 'been there.'" -Dave Stone, Senior Pastor of Southeast Christian Church

"I know Kent's desire in writing this book is to help you be a better man through the memorable stories and real-life tips. If you read and share this book, somewhere in the world, a boy will become a man. I don't speak for Kent, but I'm pretty sure it's in the fine print of this book. Look closely." -Ryan Sanders, Director, Marketing and Communications, National Fatherhood Initiative

    This has to be one of the most engaging books presenting a very strong case for genuine discipleship currently available. Kent incorporates humility, humor, honesty, and great illustrative personal experiences, even those which may be a bit painful to share with several thousand new readers. I also noticed that he applied much of the wisdom he received from others in how he constructed this book, I've read that actual discipleship opportunities focusing upon men, are not a mainstay in many churches anymore, but this book would be of great benefit for a group of men to read together and work / walk through to help each other grow in a genuine atmosphere of openness, humility and excitement to see each other grow. Can hardly wait for his second book that he mentioned.

    There are a lot of books out there for women, and the Christian book market seems to aimed at women. This book though is just for men. Women could read it, but there really isn't much for women in it. Sorry ladies. :)

    The idea of this book is that we men tend to try to do everything ourselves and have the idea that it is unmanly to seek advice or help from other guys. The author covers such things as how to correct gently, always be asking, exercise tangible grace, and many others covered in the 17 chapters.

    Each chapter discusses how to learn the topic from other guys, often with the author relating personal stories. That is followed by a Lessons Learned section that discusses how to apply that topic to your own life, and the chapter ends with questions to consider.

    This isn't a long book. Maybe they figured men have a shorter attention span when it comes to reading..... but it is packed with helpful advice and information on how not to be an island and try to figure life out on our own, but instead to seek out from men around us how to live and be the kind of men we should be.

    The book was interesting and very informative. I found it very helpful and saw a lot of areas that I could learn from other guys in.

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
