If you're a man over 40 years of age, you have entered the best years of your life. No kidding! In Midlife Manual for Men, Stephen Arterburn and John Shore show men how God has been preparing them for this time. They examine five major roles men play throughout their lifetime - He-Man, Son, Husband, Provider, and Father and show how God uses these roles to enable them to live significant lives. Paperback.
A fresh and funny--yet utterly serious--book about men and midlife, from the bestselling author of the Every Man's Battle series, Stephen Arterburn. Written for every man who is in or near midlife, it examines the roles men inhabit throughout their lives and shows how God uses those roles to build the qualities that make a truly good man. This practical and encouraging book gives men the tools to make the rest of their lives matter.
Stephen Arterburn and coauthor John Shore, both men in midlife, speak men's language. They're straightforward, not sugarcoating the issues of aging, fear of death, and feelings of loss or failure. They offer hope and show readers how they can live God-honoring significant lives. This is a book that pastors will want their men's ministries to read, accountability groups will discuss, and wives will buy for their husbands.
