In this era of political correctness, there aren't many willing to tackle topics that are gender specific. However, Pastor Craig Groeschel is not afraid to challenge trends or risk the ire of the PC police. He actually believes what he has written about and practices those principles in his latest book.

His focus in FIGHT is on the growing number of men who are not willing to fight for anything or about anything. These are men who have become so passive that they are being relegated to minor roles in society, much to the detriment of family units and society in general. Whether or not one agrees with the concept that men and women have unique attributes that enable them to play specific roles, it would be difficult to deny that the lines have become blurred in recent years.

Groeschel believes the Biblical principles that picture man as a warrior rather than a wimp, who is more than willing to fight for his wife, children, faith and country. The idea has become almost unthinkable in some circles, a throwback to the bad old days when a man of strength was respected and admired. This is not to say that Groeschel is advocating some kind of return to a caveman-as-role-model era. He actually redefines the type of strength that men need and that families and societies are painfully missing.

Rather than advocating some kind of patriarchal, authoritarian male behavior, Groeschel is encouraging men to find the warrior within them by seeking strength from God to be all that he was created to be. What does it really mean to be strong? What battles are worth fighting? How does a man recognize a righteous battle?

In his easy, conversational style, Groeschel presents his theme in short two- and three-page chapters that illustrate his points.

It's no secret: I'm nerdy. I can probably bench the same weight as when I was thirteen. And, I'm pretty sure if I were to punch someone, I'd hurt myself. But, there is still something inside of me as a man that is intrigued by the fight. I can't shake it. Author Craig Groeschel appeals to this God-wired desire for the fight in men in his upcoming book Fight. This 160-page book is written specifically for men. Through its five sections and 35 micro-chapters, Groeschel takes us into a deeper study of the life of Samson, and how his life really isn't all that dissimilar from our very own at times.

At first, this book started out slowly for me. I felt like it took a while to get into the content, especially since it is already a smaller book at only 160 pages. That said, once we got into the study of Samson in Judges, I loved it. This deals with some very real and contemporary issues for any man. We quickly learn, as men, that we have been fighting for many of the wrong things rather than fighting to be a man of integrity. Specifically, Groeschel deals with three areas of weakness: lust ("I want it."), entitlement ("I deserve it."), and pride ("I can handle it."). As we study the life of Samson, we learn that it is never too late to change those statements into "I want God," "I deserve death," and "I can't handle anything without God."

I understand that for many men reading a book is not on the top of their priorities. However, this book really was written for you. This book is for the young man striving to find direction in his life. This book is for the middle-aged man struggling through a midlife crisis. This book is for the old man reflecting on the legacy he is to leave behind.

I'm a big fan of Craig Groeschel and in "Fight" he delivers a knockout book on how men can fight the good fight and be strong men of God. By intermixing personal stories with the biblical tale of Sampson he illustrates some strong principles of what real strength is and how men can overcome the pitfalls in life that drag many of us down. What i enjoy most about his writing is that you can almost hear his personal "voice" and you read. He has a clear and distinctive writing style that is both honest and funny. If you are looking for encouragement in the proper ways to walk through life as strong, man of God, this is a great read. Five stars for strong writing that hits home.

I received an excerpt from this book as part of a daily devotional and knew immediately that I needed and truly wanted to read the entire book. In fact, I bought two copies: a digital version and a hardback for when I forget to charge my Kindle. Craig Groeschel pulls no punches and sounds like a coach giving an inspiring half time talk to a team that is way behind. This is an excellent book that I would recommend to any man who is serious about living for God.

Men were created to fight for what's right, to fight for their families and to fight for what is right. There's glory on the battlefield and honor in the fight.
Pastor Craig Groeschel uses the life of Samson to illustrate how he succeeded and failed in battles.
Most important - Samson was God's anointed judge to the people of Israel. The anointing didn't leave him until he failed finally at the hands of a betraying woman Delilah. Even then, "His hair began to grow back..." and the anointing returned.
Even in your failures, you belong to God. Trust in Him to be there for you.
