Editorial Reviews


Kingdom Man is a playbook for life. Tony Evans has laid out the game plan to follow if we, as men, want to live a championship life. He describes not only what we need to do, but more importantly, how to do it. This book is a must-read for any man who wants to live up to God’s design for male leadership of the family! (Tony Dungy, Super Bowl-winning coach and New York Times bestselling author)|If you want to experience all that God has destined for you, Kingdom Man is essential. In it, Dr. Tony Evans gives helpful and relevant tools that you can use to reach a place of influence and impact. This book will help you progress from being a good man to being a great man! (Tony Romo, Quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys)|I’m a big game-plan guy, and Tony has the ability to lay out a game plan for those of us who want to be Kingdom Men. As we have gotten to know each other over the years, it’s become clear to me that Tony has a heart for the Lord and a gift for communicating God’s principles. (Joe Gibbs, Three-time Super Bowl champion and Three-time NASCAR champion)

From the Inside Flap

“The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field.” (Matthew 13:44)
A priceless treasure is worth everything you have. But so many men today are living without even a semblance of treasure because they have not understood the mystery of the Kingdom; instead, they settle for gadgets, golf clubs, video games, careers, cars, remotes, and vacation packages.

Those things are okay―unless they take you off course from pursuing the Kingdom― unless they become your goal.

Men, God has a standard, a goal. Yet so many have lowered His goal, only to then congratulate themselves for being able to dunk the ball. A cursory glance around our homes, churches, communities, and globe reveals that men―not all, but many―have missed the goal to live as a Kingdom Man.

Society has deteriorated to an all-time low. Our world is on a downward path of self-destructive behavior.

That must change―but how?

It’s up to men to take the lead in raising the standard back to where God originally placed it. This book is about raising that standard and defining manhood as God intended. It’s about discovering what it means to be a Kingdom Man.

More About the Author

Dr. Tony Evans is one of the country's most respected leaders in evangelical circles. As a pastor, teacher, author and speaker, he serves the body of Christ through his unique ability to communicate complex theological truths through simple, yet profound, illustrations. While addressing the practical issues of today, Dr. Evans is known as a relevant expositor. New and veteran pastors alike regard him as a pastor of pastors and a father in the faith.

The first African-American to graduate with a doctoral degree from Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS), he served as an associate professor in DTS' Pastoral Ministries Department in the areas of evangelism, homiletics and black church studies. He continues to serve DTS on the Board of Incorporate Members. Dr. Evans holds the rare honor of serving as chaplain for the NBA's Dallas Mavericks over the last three decades, the longest standing NBA chaplaincy on record. He also serves as chaplain of the Dallas Cowboys.

Through his local church and national ministry Dr. Evans promotes a Kingdom agenda philosophy that teaches God's comprehensive rule over every sphere of life as demonstrated through the individual, family, church and society.

This philosophy connects biblical spirituality with social responsibility. Dr. Evans teaches that the church, not the government, is the best social service delivery system since it is closer to the needs of the people, offers the largest potential volunteer force, has facilities for outreach programs, and provides a moral and spiritual frame of reference for making right choices.

At the heart of this vision is the use of church and school partnerships to effect spiritual and social change in communities. Dr. Evans' church and school outreach philosophy has been attributed as a catalyst for former President George W. Bush's Faith Based Initiative, which was his first formal act of office. Dr. Evans seeks to train churches, schools and volunteers in this philosophy, as well as in the functional practicalities, through the National Church Adopt-A-School Initiative which is a ministry underneath the umbrella of The Urban Alternative.

Dr. Evans has served as the senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship for over 35 years, witnessing its growth from ten people in 1976 to now over 9,000 congregants with 100 plus ministries.

Dr. Evans also serves as president of The Urban Alternative, a national ministry that seeks to bring about spiritual renewal in America through the church. His daily radio broadcast, The Alternative with Dr. Tony Evans, can be heard on close to 1000 radio outlets throughout the United States and in more than 130 countries.

Dr. Evans has written numerous books and booklets including his legacy work, Oneness Embraced, as well as his vision work, The Kingdom Agenda. Some of his most recent books include Kingdom Man, Kingdom Woman, How Should Christians Vote, Marriage Matters, Between a Rock and a Hard Place and Victory in Spiritual Warfare.

Dr. Tony Evans is married to Lois, his wife and ministry partner of over 40 years. They are the proud parents of four children, all who serve in ministry: Chrystal Hurst, Priscilla Shirer, Anthony, and Jonathan as well as the proud grandparents of ten: Kariss, Jessica, Jackson, Jesse, III, Jerry, Jr., Kanaan, Jude, Joel, Kelsey, Jonathan II.

Dr. Evans has received many honors, including the Father of the Year award voted by the Dallas Father of the Year Committee and the Marian Pfister Anshutz Award for "dedication to protecting, encouraging, and strengthening the American family" from the Family Research Center.

77 of 80 people found the following review helpful By Joshua Reich on March 16, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
Just finished reading Kingdom Man (kindle version) by Tony Evans. It was a book that I pulled a few ideas from for my sermon this past weekend at Revolution Church on "Marriage & Men."

One of the driving forces of Revolution Church from day one has been to challenge men to step up to the plate and be the men God has called and created them to be. Dr. Evans gets it right, you can trace many of the problems and issues in our culture back to the home and absence of men.

Here are a few stats:

-70% of all prisoners come from fatherless homes.
-80% of all rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes.
-71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes.
-63% of all teen suicides occur in homes where the father was either abusive or absent.
-Virtually every adult social pathology has been linked to either fatherless homes or homes with a father and/or husband who was absent, abusive, or neglectful.

In this book, Dr. Evans looks at this problem, but unlike many authors he doesn't stay at the problem He quickly moves to the solution, and that's what the book is about. He traces the biblical story, how men are created to lead, have dominion under God's authority. The reality that we see in Genesis 3 and then in Romans 5 is that men are primarily responsible for what happens on their watch. They are given primary responsibility for their families, to lead them well. As Dr. Evans says, "As a man, you are ultimately responsible for those within your domain." The concept of domain or dominion is important and easy to misunderstand. The biblical concept of dominion, or rule, is neither a dictatorship nor a posture of domination, but rather it entails exercising legitimate authority under the lordship of Jesus Christ.

We Do Need Kingdom Men

We need a focus on charging men to take their Biblical responsibility as such seriously. Tony Evans takes this seriously and for that I'm glad. He begins by setting the stage,

The impact of lowered standards leaves its scars no matter what race, income bracket, or community a person is in. The outcomes may be different depending on the location, but they are just as devastating. Promiscuity, emptiness, depression, chronic irresponsibility, family breakup, misuse of finances, divorce, violence, chemical addiction. overeating, indulgence, bankruptcy, low self-esteem, and general aimlessness plague our society as a direct result of the abuse or neglect of biblical manhood. (p. 2)

I've never read any of his other books but it seems we share the same foundation of a complementarian understanding of men/women relationships. However, I fear in Kingdom Man that masculinity is confused with athletic prowess. I love sports but many men don't and for those men may find relating to Tony's message difficult because his favorite metaphor is athletics. Even for a guy like me who loves sports, the analogies wore me out by the end of the book. We have to do a better job communicating what true manhood is without falling back on sports as our primary analogy. Often I would argue that professional athletics have contributed heavily to the abuse that Tony is arguing against.

Kingdom Man is broken up into three parts which each build upon each other. In Part 1 ("The Formation of a Kingdom Man"), Tony begins by establishing the basis for his kingdom theology. He argues for the need of kingdom men to focus and glorify God (an emphasis throughout the book which I found refreshing see p. 6).

13 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Ma Ingalls on March 26, 2012
Format: Hardcover
What a strong desire God has given Tony Evans for the hearts of men! Men who function under the submission of Jesus Christ. Men who desire for what God desires. Trusting Christ alone for salvation. Mediating on God's strength and love. Tony takes theology and talks like a coach. He puts God's Word in a context in which men can relate and spiritually digest.

As a reviewer, this book echoed themes from other recently published books: The Circle Maker, The 21-Day Dad Challenge, The Book of Man, and Why Men Hate Church. Also, the movie Courageous. This book encourages God to be the source men draw from in spiritual battles. The race set before us is not for wimps. And as Christ intended, men are spiritual warriors and a covering for their families. Knowing about God is crucially important for conducting our lives. Men can not disregard God's plan.

I found Mr. Evan's testimony about his father (through out the book) encouraging. God does not want us to do life alone. This book also calls out mentors to shepherd the next generation. Jesus calls men to learn from him.

This book is for our home libraries to refer to often and for our sons as they become men.

I received this book free for an honest review from Tyndale publishing.

Bought this book to see if it would make a good men's bible study book. It's excellent! Good encouragement for men. We will defiantly be using it in a men's small group study. I highly recommend it.

Title: Kingdom Man
Author: Tony Evans
Pages: 240
Year: 2012
Publisher: Focus on the Family
Note: I received a complimentary copy for review from Tyndale Publishers Blogger Network.

Some might wonder why a book written for men by a man is being read and reviewed by a woman. Others might think there is no problem, and I am sure some just want to know about the book regardless of who read and wrote the review. I have one son who wants to read books written by men for men; he isn't particularly wild for any serious books written by women for men. While I may not understand why he is like that, I accept him as he is and know it is important for men to speak to men, especially about topics that we as women frankly know little about. We might have head knowledge to share, but the make-up of a man is so different than that of a woman.
I have heard of Pastor Evans, especially about his speaking, many times from my husband who enjoys listening to his teaching. For me, I have other teachers I prefer to listen to. However, I wanted to read this book to see what the pastor was encouraging men to do as well as exhorting them to live out. Plus sometimes reading a book such as this gives me new ideas for how to pray specifically for my husband and sons.
Contrary to other books I have read, this is a fresh as well as much needed exhortation for men. However, Pastor Evans goes on to show why he places these challenges before men. Pastor Evans then takes it a step further by showing how decisions made by men affect themselves, families, churches, communities, even nations as a whole. While most of us can't see how a man not being a prayer warrior affects the prior list, we can certainly see the cumulative result in our society today.
