Publisher's Description

Somewhere along the way, our culture lost its definition of manhood, leaving generations of men and men-to-be confused about their roles, responsibilities, relationships, and the reason God made them men. It's into this "no man's land" that New York Times bestselling author Mark Batterson declares his mantra for manhood: play the man.

In this inspiring call to something greater, he helps men understand what it means to be a man of God by unveiling seven virtues of manhood. Mark shares inspiring stories of manhood, including the true story of the hero and martyr Polycarp, who first heard the voice from heaven say, "Play the man." Mark couples those stories with practical ideas about how to disciple the next generation of men. This is more than a book; it's a movement of men who will settle for nothing less than fulfilling their highest calling to be the man and the father God has destined them to be. Play the man. Make the man.

    You may ask "Why would a woman read a book sub-titled 'Becoming the Man God Created You to Be'?" This woman read it for two reasons. (1) Mark Batterson is my favorite author. He inspires me to my core and every book that I have read that he has written I absolutely LOVE! (2) I'm a woman that loves God and seeks daily to be the best me that I can be. Every virtue in this book is a virtue that I want to possess! "Play the Man" is challenging and as a Christian we should run to the challenge and run away from our comfort zones! "Jesus didn't call us to be comfortable; He called us to be dangerous." (I believe that is a Mark Batterson quote) Thanks Mark for another phenomenal book!! #PlaytheMan #BewhoGodcreatedyoutobe

    I was excited to see that Mark Batterson had a new book out and it did not disappoint! This book is geared more towards men but can be adapted for ladies as well. As a wife, daughter and sister there were lots of "nuggets" that I got out of this book that can be used in those relationships moving forward.

    I was excited to read Batterson's take on being a Godly man, and raising Godly men. As a divorced woman, I went in mostly curious to know what I should hope for in a man, should I ever attempt dating again. I am happy to say that I learned a lot about myself as well as getting a great read and a lot of insight.

    I can easily suggest that all men, sons, fathers, whatever should read this. And I would not hesitate to suggest it to other women as well. You will find questions, answers and more to build and grow on, and really what more could you want from another excellent Batterson book?

    This book is a real gem! In today's society, we have forgotten how to play the man. This book is a wake up call for us to be the men that God created us to be. It took me longer to read this book than most of Batterson's other books, because I spent a lot of time meditating on its message. This book really challenged me. Thank you Mark Batterson for tackling the subject of manhood. It was much needed! I highly recommend this book to everyone, not just men!

    I've read many books on the topics of manhood, fathering and marriage. Not one of them is as good as this!

    The title comes from the life of Polycarp, a man who was martyred for his faith around 160 AD. Moments before his execution in the Romam Coliseum, a voice was audibly heard by all saying Be strong, Polycarp, and play the man! This book is a call towards manhood as Polycarp displayed - devotion, passion and selflessness.

    Batterson has a way of taking deep, nuanced topics and making them accessible and memorable. This book is clear, concise, and compelling. Using the vantage point of seven virtues, Play the Man sets a clear course for a man's life. As a bonus, the last three chapters revolve around the idea of intentionally transitioning boys to become men. Play the Man is filled with essential wisdom, practice suggestions, and unforgettable sayings. While others may take longer to say similar things, no other book is as helpful or succinct on the topic of Biblical manhood as this one.
