This book is excellent--so much so that I've ordered another 5 copies. One will go to my 20 year old son, one to my pastor, one to a male friend....It is the best book by far of all I've read about being a Godly man in today's world. I am sure there will be those who disagree with many of the ideas in the book--ideas that may hit a little close to home, making the reader take a good look at his heart, motivations, life. It's hard to admit being flawed; it's easier to dismiss the ideas that make us uncomfortable. The author is honest and encouraging as he shares examples of his own failures, and the things he's learned that have made a difference in his marriage and his life.

Last month, I received a copy of The Kind of Man Every Man Should Be: Taking a Stand for True Masculinity, the latest book by my friend and co-host, Kevin McCullough. Kevin pushes back against the forces he sees as undermining men in modern society, describes the damage they do, and offers his recipe for countering both.

No one who knows Kevin will be surprised to see him argue for a Biblical perspective on true masculinity and balance between the genders. He makes no apologies for believing that Scriptural prescriptions for healthy male identity. Books like this can either take an academic or activist approach, and Kevin definitely uses the latter. While he makes passing references to studies and research, he does not rely on them to "prove" his observations. Rather, he allows his observations to give readers context for his advice to men seeking to assert their masculinity in healthy, productive ways that will benefit not just themselves -- in fact, not primarily themselves -- but their wives, children, and communities. He writes about the differences between equality and sameness, and how the confusion of these two concepts in terms of gender have left two generations of men confused, women dissatisfied, and families in crisis.

Those of us who have read Kevin's column, blogs, or heard him on my show and his own will not find his perspective surprising. However, The Kind of Man turns out to be a very personal work, and in that sense we get an opportunity to know Kevin much more intimately than I have in four years of friendship. Kevin shares painful lessons from his own life at both failed and successful masculinity. As I read the book, I was surprised at how little I knew about my friend, and how affecting these anecdotes are in underscoring his message.

I ordered five copies of McCullough's book The Kind of Man Every Man Should Be. One for me, my dad, my brother, and two copies for my guy friends (both of whom just turned 21). This book was a real eyeopener for me. I, like thousands of women, find myself wondering, "Where have all the REAL men gone?" I understand now why men have become so passive and why they have such weak spirits.
What ALL you men out there need to do is FIGHT. Stop letting all these men-hating feminists threat you like garbage. Stand up and fight!

Kevin gets so much right in this book. It's a thorough look at the reasons for the confusion on masculinity. More importantly, Kevin challenges you with the strong & holy avenues you need to walk, to become the man God created you to be. You're gonna see some aspect of yourself in this book... and you'll be driven by the encouragement Kevin provides to finally establish your God given attributes in a confident and manly way. No doubt... you'll be a stronger man for having read this book.
