BOOKS

Man in the Mirror 25th Anniversary Edition by Patrick Morley: Identity. Relationships. Money. Integrity. What problems do you face? Men grappling with the pressures of everyday life don't need spiritual fluff---they need real answers, and Morley offers them in this revised and updated edition of his bestseller. Learn how to trade the rat race for the rewards of godly manhood!

Man Up Becoming a Godly Man in an Ungodly World by Jody Burkeen: Jody's self-described "Damascus Road Transformation" led him on a journey to search the scripture to find what he had been missing his whole life, Jesus Christ. In this journey, the Word of God took over in a way he never expected.

Wild at Heart by John Eldredge: God designed men to seek out adventure. But, somewhere between childhood and the struggles of yesterday, most men lose sight of those dreams. Fear not: bestselling author and counselor John Eldredge is here to teach men that there's a better way to live. He unpacks man's search for validation, the need for the development of courage in his soul, and the call to live a life of adventure.

Disciples Are Made Not Born by Walter A. Henrichsen: "Make Disciples." Jesus' command is clear. But what is a disciple? And how are we to "make" them? Based on decades of experience, this book explains and illustrates the process of disciple-making that Jesus taught and modeled. Disciple-making is challenging, to be sure. But as we are faithful to Christ's Great Commission, we'll experience the fulfillment that comes from being faithful to the life mission to which God has called us.

Kingdom Men by Tony Evans: For too long, men have sat on the sideline of life. But God intends for us to get into the game. We’ve been content with mediocre while God calls us to greatness. The path to a better world and a better future for our families and communities begins at our door. We need to take hold of our biblical anointing and become men sold out for the kingdom of God.

Organic Discipleship: Mentoring Others into Spiritual Maturity and Leadership (Revised Edition) by Dennis McCallum and Jessica Lowry: Biblical and practical, this book gets down to the real questions in the disciple making process: How can I avoid discredited authoritarian models for disciple-making? What is the biblical case for making disciples?

The Measure of a Man by Gene A. Getz: True masculinity is not measured by the strength of a man, but by these twenty biblical guidelines drawn from the Apostle Paul's letters to his young protégés Timothy and Titus. Inspiring, encouraging, and practical, this book shows men how they can reach God's standards as fathers, husbands, and mentors to other men.

The Men We Need by Brant Hanson: The world needs real men, real bad. And there are all sorts of conflicting ideas and messages about what a "real man" is (and is not). Is a real man one who hunts, loves sports, grills meat, fixes cars, and climbs mountains? Sure, sometimes. But that's not really the point of being a man and it's not the purpose for which men were made.

The Intentional Father by Jon Tyson: Self-initiation is killing our young men. Without strong mentors, boys are walking alone into a wilderness of conflicting messages about who they should be as men. It's no wonder that our sons are confused about what the world expects from them and what they should expect of themselves.

Four Pillars of a Man’s Heart by Stu Webber: Building upon the "Four Pillars of Manhood" model set forth in his bestseller Tender Warrior, author Stu Weber leads readers in an expanded, in-depth biblical exploration of what it means to be a king, warrior, mentor, and friend. Addressing key circumstances faced by men of all ages and backgrounds, Four Pillars of a Man's Heart focuses on areas of struggle and opportunity faced by husbands, fathers, and single men of all ages and backgrounds.

Surfing for God by Michael John Cusick: Discover how the barrier built by porn addiction can become a bridge to abundant life.
