This book is very easy reading, as you feel that Fr. Larry is standing right in front of you, talking right to you. He addresses the readers as "gentlemen," but you could substitute your own name very easily to make it seem like Fr. Larry is speaking to you personally.
Fr. Larry substantiates almost everything he says with Scripture. I was impressed to find passages from Scripture on almost every page. Anecdotes - sometimes humorous - and stories from Father's own life, stories and quotes of the saints, popes and other Christians like Billy Graham, all support the point he is trying to make in each chapter. No one could ever accuse this book of being boring!
This book is very practical too. At the end of each of the ten chapters is a list of three tasks to be accomplished, along with three questions for reflection and discussion. At the end of the book the thirty tasks are recapped with checkboxes so you can check them off as you accomplish them.
Although this book was written for men, there are several chapters which could apply to women also. Father admittedly suggests that chapter nine about holiness is not for just men, as we are ALL called to be holy. I also found the chapters about repentance and the Holy Spirit very helpful, as again, women also are called to repent and to live a life in the Holy Spirit. I especially liked Father's explanations of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, since many people do not understand those gifts.Read more ›
How many times have you looked around and asked "What in the heck is going on in the world?" There are threats to your masculinity as well as your family around every turn. I submit that these threats must be met by truly Christian men who understand what is at stake and want to do something about it.
Fr. Larry Richards is a masterful speaker and his humor and wisdom make this a must have book for any Christian man. To be a man holds many responsibilities and it can be difficult to maintain a truly Christian life in this crazy mixed up world. With the help of Fr. Larry and the unchanging truths of our Christian faith he will help you to step up and truly BE A MAN!
Our men's group will be using this book as a basis for our ministry and we highly recommend it.
I would also add that this is one of the few books I have ever read that I know I will use as a reference for the rest of my life.
You feel Fr. Larry getting to you in the first line of the first chapter: Fr. Larry says you are going to die! But don't get discouraged because by the last chapter he's got you pumped about doing something to help change the world; dying can come later after you get the job done.
What's so compelling about this book is that Fr. Larry is on every page--and, in a way, so are you! Fr. Larry is yelling at you, grabbing you by the collar, pulling, shoving you to Christ; and you're loving it. You'll laugh and you'll cry because he's so down to earth not only about you but himself: "...when I am in the chapel alone...when the God of the universe kicks my butt from one end of the chapel to the other because He loves me and wants me to be holy."
Although the title suggests it's a book for men, there's a lot for women, too, especially in understanding the men in women's lives, and the differences between men and women. (Elizabeth & Richard Gerbracht)
Thank you, Fr. Larry.
