Our Men's Group went through this book and we thought it was very good. Its short chapters, to the point encouragement and biblical underpinning was just what we needed. We also liked the key verses in the back which we picked one to memorize each week and the built in questions which made it easy to share the load of leading and find new potential leaders for other areas of our church. The only downside might be a few chapters came off as a bit preachy and not understanding the real life that everyday guys live. That was only a very few though. Strongly biblical as you would expect from the staff that John MacArthur heads.
While not that dissimilar from other books of the kind, it covers all necessary ground, is well written, and is readable. Most of all, it is accurate and challenging because it has a sound scriptural basis. As always, what you gain from it is determined by your willingness to apply the truths presented.
Very good book. Each chapter brings to life the heroes of the Bible, how they faced the same types of struggles we face today, and how through the wisdom found in Gods Word they lived in the world but not of the world.
I found this to be a excellent book for use with a bible study. Very good reading and discussion was excellent in the bible study I am involved with. Bought the kindle version and sent the paperback to my brother in law so he could read it also.
