Editorial Reviews

From the 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, wins 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.

After watching the trailer for Courageous, I knew I had to read The Resolution for Men. And, speaking as an author myself, after reading the first couple of sentences, I was hooked:

* "Weak men will not be able to handle the contents of this book ... You will be challenged to get out of your comfort zone, work through hidden issues from your past, and make strategic sacrifices for the sake of your family and your faith. But those who step up to the challenge will find that living out the resolution will radically impact their priorities and assist them in becoming strong men who are found faithful. It will take courage. But it will be worth it."

My wife and I have been married for three years but we do not have children yet. That said, this book speaks to me. It's not just for big families--but every family of two or more. In fact, I wish I'd read this book as a single man.

Just as Fireproof and The Love Dare hit their mark, I believe Courageous and The Resolution for Men will help change lives in amazing ways.

This is a very quick easy read, yet it will impact your life.

We are living very difficult times and this book explains and answers many of those terrible consequences we can't understand today. This book basically will help us understand what God's design for men is and compares with how most of us are under cultural traditions or what the world have taught us, which is far away from our Creator's design.

Imagine this: What happens when you use something out of its design parameters? Something that was not intended or created to be used for? It fails!
A simple example: try to overload an airplane or your truck and see what happens! Try to use your phone to swim? Clearly not what it was intended to be used for! Well, likewise there is a design for men! Divorce, work overload, children with problems, drugs, alcohol, financial crisis, etc... many consequences of men out of its design parameters.

I believe if every men understood God's purpose and design in life we would live in a different world today. Will I recommend this book? Absolutely! Actually I pray and hope every men would read this. I will give away this book to every close friend and family member. Also great if women understood this!

Based on the message of the movie which will be out on Sept 30. [...]

11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Darlene Jan Alice Oakley on January 6, 2012
Format: Paperback
This is an absolute MUST READ for any Christian father, father-to-be, husband or husband-to-be -- and for every mother, mother-to-be, wife and wife-to-be. Very rarely do I get this excited about a book - and I have many on my bookshelf!

As families continue to crumble and fall and ex-life partners struggle to figure out why, it is imperative that the Church reinforce the roles of husband and wife that are very clearly laid out in the Bible and that husbands and wives take up the challenge of those roles instead of trying to define and live out their own as based on what society deems right and popular.

I would very strongly recommend that both husbands and wives read both the Resolution for Men and the Resolution for Women so that each can hold the other partner accountable for actions, inactions and ways of thinking that are not in keeping with God's ways and teachings.

Our families and children need strong fathers more than ever. Fathers/husbands that know the difference between loving and respecting and cherishing and being dominating and abusive and manipulative. Fathers, contrary to popular opinion, are integral to raising healthy, well-rounded kids, and to keeping a marriage together. When fathers negate their God-ordained role or abuse that role for purposes that God never intended, then families suffer. "A man cannot be passive about what Scripture tells him to do for his family and expect to be found faithful to God in the end." (page 3)

This is a lesson that every man, and every young man who has visions of being a husband and father in his life needs to read.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Logan Stewart on February 20, 2012
Format: Paperback
The Resolution for Men is not the kind of book that I would normally read. In fact, I think I've only read one book like it before, John Eldredge's Wild at Heart, and that as a single lad in college. Now, with nearly five years of marriage under my belt, and almost a year of being a father, books like Resolution seem more appropriate. Resolution, written by brothers Stephen & Alex Kendrick, is an accompanying resource book for last year's Courageous, a quasi-companion to Fireproof.

Point blank, I've seen neither of these movies, though from what I hear, they're "wonderful." Personally, I just don't see the appeal. I get that Christian movies are clean and wholesome and powerful and filled with a message, but generally the acting and budgets are not comparable to a Hollywood powerhouse. Now I'm not knocking these movies, and I'm glad that they exist. No, what I have problems with is the fact that the movie is labeled as a "Christian" movie, relegating it into a genre that's typically laughed at and ignored. Anyone who's read this blog very long knows that I dislike labels and genres, whether it's for film or books or music or whatever. If you want to reach a larger audience then remove the genre classification. Until then, we'll remain a splintered people, separated by race, religion, and many other things.

With that said, Resolution is a non-fictional book about what it means to be a Man. To be a good husband. To be a good dad. Or, from the Introduction,
This book is an unapologetic call for men to live courageously for their faith and their families. It is designed to strategically challenge you to become the man God created you to be. (page1)
Continuing my confession, I would very likely never have read Resolution on my own. It's just not my norm.
