Book Review: The Resolution for Men by Stephen and Alex Kendrick

Excerpt: Whether you are married or not, or have children or not, we invite you to take on the challenge. Apply the Resolution to your situation, and join us in embracing God's call to become godly men who are stepping up as spiritual leaders in this generation.

Signing this resolution will be easy and take seconds. But fully living it out and being true to its principles will be difficult and take the rest of our lives. We are aware of this. This is why it is good to do this with other men and to maintain accountability. In fact, we're added discussion questions at the end of the book, as well as a memory verse and specific challenge at the end of each chapter, to help you get the most out of this experience.

But be sure of this: whatever way you choose to go about it, every chapter in this book is a strategic investment in you to help you win. We are inviting you to be courageous - to learn what it means to become a man of firm resolution. We fully intend to give ourselves to this and are asking God to help us intentionally pursue the kind of lives that are found faithful to Him in the end. And we are asking you to join us on this incredible journey.

As men, we are called to this! We were made for this!

And by God's grace we can do this! It's time to man up! The Resolution for Men, pg 7.

Back Cover: While most men will die with deep regrets, others will resolve to live for what matters most.

From the New York Times best-selling authors of The Love Dare comes a strong resolution of faith, family, and fatherhood that sets men on a course toward long-term success - the kind that breaks the chains of your past, earns the loving trust of your wife, winds the hearts of your children, and prepares a legacy beyond what your father could leave for you. With a clear resolution, you'll be able to see exactly where you're going. Straight ahead into a life marked by renewed faithfulness.

My Review: If you're a man, you need to read this book! We all need this challenge to live our lives in a God-honoring way, each and every day. This book excites me and challenges me at the same time. I can't help but wonder how God is going to use this powerful tool. I want Him to use it in my family. My husband hasn't had a chance to read this book yet, but he wants to. Someday, when my son is older, I want him to read this as well. I want the men in my family to be ones who honor God in their daily lives. This book isn't just a bunch of nice stories that help us feel better about ourselves, but a challenge to higher living. This book isn't for the faint at heart. You really have to be courageous to dedicate yourself to the resolution presented in this book. I pray that many men in our generation will read this book and be changed. God can do anything with a man (or woman) who is resolved to live their lives for him. Are you courageous enough to sign the resolution?

My Rating:

My Recommendation: I highly recommend this book to men of all ages.

  1. Excellent book that is a perfect read after having seen the movie Courageous. Challenges men to be better fathers and really makes you think more about what kind of father you have been. The country is in despair because we have lost sight of the lord and principles like these. A must read for those who want to be a real man.
