How to Be a Man: Pursuing Christ-centered Masculinity
Manhood is in crisis in our culture today. The biblical picture of discipleship in the home is of an active, godly man leading his family and men must be intentionally equipped and discipled, but so many men are disconnected from this God-given task.
How to Be a Man: Pursuing Christ-centered Masculinity seeks to storm the hearts of men to define what manhood looks like in the world today. And the best example we have is that of Christ. The authors have identified eight core characteristics we see in the person of Christ, seeing Him & His actions as expressions of the model man: identity, integrity, purpose, surrender, passion, commitment, compassion, and influence.
This 40-day devotional will spur you on to a more passionate pursuit of Christ-centered manhood. It’s designed to give you manageable devotional content that shouldn’t take you more than a few minutes to read, and questions (what we call “Processing the Pursuit”) that will challenge you to apply what you’re learning in your life in order to become a real man of God.
How to Be a Man: Pursuing Christ-centered Masculinity[STUDENT EDITION]
Culture sends so many confusing messages about masculinity, and when you add faith to the mix, it gets even more complicated. What does it mean to be a man, anyway? And more importantly, what does it mean to be a teenage guy who seeks to become the young man God wants him to be?
This 40-day devotional will spur a teenager on to a more passionate pursuit of Christ-centered manhood. It’s designed to give him manageable devotional content that shouldn’t take him more than a few minutes to read, and questions (what we call “Processing the Pursuit”) that will challenge him to apply what he's learning in his life in order to become a real man of God.
This book is perfect for a 13-year-old to 17-year-old. The Man version talks about family, children, etc. The student version has that filtered out. The student version approaches those themes differently.
Use this in the Dad/Son, teenager small group How to Be a Man Challenge (Step 2).
Get the bundle. It's the perfect for the man who is already impacting the life of the younger generation. Fathers and sons, uncles and nephews, mentors and mentees can travel the 40-day road together, sharpening each other as they grow closer to Christ.
Includes one copy of the How to Be a Man: Pursuing Christ-centered Masculinity and one copy of the Student Edition.
