If you find yourself constantly trying to please others to gain approval and not rock the boat, you could have the opposite effect and actually begin to hurt those around you. Author Paul Coughlin lays out a helpful map for men to begin to understand who they are so they can become a self confident and assertive person while also fulfilling God's loving, biblical ideal.
Living Bold as a Christ-like Man
"Recovering nice guy" Paul Coughlin points the way for al men who yearn to live a life of boldness and conviction--like Jesus. Using humorous examples from his own life, powerful and poignant stories, and vivid examples from contemporary culture, Coughlin shows how he learned to say no to the "nice guy" syndrome.
After all, Christian nice guys aren't always so nice. In the name of appearing Christian by being agreeable, they can lie, keep secrets, manipulate, duck responsibility, and much more. Using the biblical model of Christ as his example of a real man, Coughlin shows men how to become both gentle and bold.
A powerful challenge and a hopeful message that elevates the true biblical model of manhood above prevailing views in the church and contemporary culture, this important book helps men discover who they are in Christ and how to live for Him.
