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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
