Format: Paperback
One of the most exciting times for a church can also be some of the most challenging. Consider the joy when a guy gets converted who did not grow up under the instruction of the Scriptures. Everyone is excited. And then the dust settles and we all realize that there is a lot of work to do to get this guy on track to be a godly man. It's good work but it is still hard.

This is confounded by the regrettable fact that many churches do not emphasize male leadership and the necessity of training men to be who they are supposed to be. If a new convert (and I was one) lands in a place like this he will spin his tires on the path of male leadership rather than advance.

As a pastor I have met quite a few of both of these types of guys. I rejoice when they come and express a desire to grow. I know it is going to involve some pastoral sweat but the upside is glorious.

In this type of ministry I have often lamented the lack of books that help guys to think and act like a biblical man. In their absence young guys like me roll up our sleeves and get to work, doubtlessly missing more than a few patches of unmowed grass.

This is why I am very excited about this new book: What Every Man Wishes His Father Had Told Him by Byron Yawn is pure gold. Yawn aims to fill that gap. He comes alongside the guy who is has not received the training, the instruction in "Being a Man 101."

The chapters are concise, fast-paced, and theologically rich. Byron teaches you Bible and theology as he teaches biblical masculinity. He is also a terrific writer with a particularly arresting southern style.

Format: Paperback
Byron Yawn has the ignominious distinction of being the first person to ever invite me to be a keynote speaker at a conference. That was a long time ago, and it seems like an even longer time, but he and I have stayed in touch since then and I was excited to hear of his work on a book titled What Every Man Wishes His Father Had Told Him. I had anticipated that I would be reading a book on fatherhood, but was pleasantly surprised to learn that it is actually far more than that.

It seems notable that I am writing this review on the occasion of my son's twelfth birthday. It is probable that he is already more than half way to striking out on his own, to marrying, to beginning a family. I've already used up half of my opportunities to teach him what a father ought to teach his son. This is the kind of thought that can very nearly move me to tears; rarely do I feel less up to the task and more dependent on grace than in fatherhood. In that regard this book was both a challenge and a comfort.

What Every Man Wishes His Father Had Told Him is a book of essays more than it is a book that flows easily and logically from the first chapter to the last; the topics are much like the lessons a father will teach his son in that they meander a little bit, wandering from being a son to being a father and a man and a husband. They extend from biblical manhood to sincerity to pornography to having "the talk" with your son, to integrity. Each one is punctuated by wisdom that is sometimes biblical and sometimes, well, just plain practical (At least to my recollection the Bible doesn't comment on why you don't want to cut into a steak to see if it's ready to eat). These are not lessons for me to teach my son; not first and foremost. These are first lessons I need to learn and apply to my own life.

Get over the cheesy cover and get into this book. The gospel applied, your sins called out, your relationship with your father and son restored. This book does it all. I want to read it again and can't stop quoting it to myself and others!

Listen: this book is great for fathers with sons but it is also great for sons of all ages. Whether you had/have a great dad or never met him this book is a must read.

Byron is a funny man; and a man with great insight!

He does away with the false ideal of manhood, that being a man is to be Gladiator, or for Byron, Jason Bourne. A true man dies to himself a learns to appreciate his wife and kids. A true man quits using excuses of his "daddy scars." A true man writes his funeral eulogy by his life.

Finally, someone who really gets it!

9 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Joshua Lake on January 13, 2012
Format: Paperback
In contrast to the unusually long title, the chapters in What Every Man Wishes His Father Had Told Him are concise and powerful, each providing a theological and seasoned illustration of biblical manhood. The chapters are the outgrowth of Byron's experiences as a young man, his years of fatherhood, and his role as a leader of men as pastor of a Nashville church.

Byron's wisdom shines forth most wonderfully in his chapters on confidence and sex. In the latter instance, Byron speaks powerfully into a Christian culture that alternatively demonizes sex and obsesses over it. His words are timely and encouraging, reminding the reader of God's beautiful design for sex and its proper role in life.

The book's audience is not clear, as some of its sections seem directed to young men and others to fathers, but that makes it readable by all. Additionally, Byron seems to picture all men as fitting one mold -- outgoing, sports-loving, meat eaters; and some of his sentences reflect that bias. But those two criticisms are minor, and they do nothing to detract from a great book that is a valuable contribution to the Church's understanding of how to raise godly men.

I commend the book to men of all ages, whether single or married, father or not. Byron portrays manhood in its biblical glory, reflecting Christ's leadership, submission, and worship of the Father.
