After reading a couple of chapters, it occurred to me that I didn't exactly fit into what I am guessing is the target audience for this book. Any guy can read this, but if you're looking for a meatier read with more connection to Scripture, this is not the book for you. If you are looking for a book that is a bit more practical in nature and is based on principles of Scripture without always making the direct connection, then you will enjoy this read. It's practical and direct and doesn't avoid uncomfortable topics.
This book is good for guys who are new believers or who are perhaps just reading their first book on the topic of biblical manhood.
This book was fantastic. I love so many different things about it that I started a Manhood small group soon after I started reading it. The book is broken up into 12 different chapters showing us dudes how to be a man. The first chapter was about determination. As men we need to be determined about what we do. “Let our yes be yes and our no be no.” We can’t forget about our responsibilities and commitments. Besides the actual content, which was great, Patrick inserts little drills for us to do while reading and it allows us to take what we are learning into the real world. I think this was awesome. Very rarely do you have a book this practical. I am not one of the guys who raved over Wild at Heart because I thought it just told you to get on a horse, hunt, read your bible and then you were a man. Patrick hits a home run by showing all of us stubborn guys what it actually means to be that man.
Not all men like riding horses and hunting, which is OK. As we read Dude’s Guide we see that it’s about the character of man that makes him a man, not the individual actions that he participates in.
Darrin Patrick covers so many of the areas in which men need help. Not only does he expose these areas, but he also provides a roadmap to continually develop into the men God wants us to be.
His writing style keeps you engaged and provokes you to action without condemnation or being preachy, and the book isn’t very long either. But it’s packed with valuable insights.
I highly recommend this book.
